Modernised Europe House opened in Podgorica

The EU Info Centre in Podgorica has been renovated, modernised, and adapted to the new needs of the wider community, dedicated to the promotion of the European Union in Montenegro. It has now reopened as Europe House, with the ceremonial ribbon at its inauguration cut by the Ambassador of the European Union, Oana Cristina Popa, the Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament, David McAllister, and the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of European Affairs, Jovana Marović.


In her address, Ambassador Popa mentioned the hundreds of events that have been organised at the EU Info Centre, gathering thousands of people from different areas of society since it opened in 2014.


“It was the place to come to get to know the EU, its initiatives, policies, and projects. But times have changed. We have high hopes for this House. We want it to become a new hub for inspiring ideas, innovative thinking, networking and brainstorming. As we hope that the times of closed doors due to the pandemic are forever over, we hope that this space will connect people: people from all sides of the political and social spectrum. We hope it will give a much-needed impetus to the debate on European integration, our values, and our joint future together,” said Popa.


Europe House, designed by Stanislav Nikičević, is located next to Argentina Square. It is open to citizens, institutions, the media and non-governmental organisations who work on EU projects or wish to do so. In addition to events and campaigns dedicated to European standards, Europe House is also available for organising workshops, seminars, exhibitions, lectures, press conferences and other promotional events.
