The Millennium Bridge is a key landmark in Podgorica, Montenegro's capital. The cable-stayed bridge crosses the Moraca RIver (the country's largest), measures 173 m (567 ft) long, and connects old town Podgorica with the new town. Opened on the day of Montenegro’s statehood, 13 July 2005, the structure took a year to construct and symbolizes Montenegro’s entry into the 21st century. The bridge is particularly impressive when lit at night.
