Podgorica, 1946-92 Titograd, capital of Montenegro; 139,400 residents (2003), most Montenegrin, but with an Albanian and a small Turkish minority. According to Countryaah data, Podgorica is a major industrial city (aluminum, wood products, machinery) and also has a university (1974). During World War II, the city had only a few thousand residents and was almost totally destroyed; but when it replaced Cetinje in 1946 as the capital of Montenegro, wide, straight streets, large green areas and modern buildings were constructed. As the city lies on a plain, it was difficult to defend against the other mountainous Montenegro, which is why it belonged to the Ottoman Empire 1474-1878.
