Population

Montenegro has a population of 642,550 (2017) and a population density of approximately 46.5 inhabitants per km2. About 67% of the population lives in the cities.

The ethnic and cultural differences between Montenegrins and Serbs persist even after Montenegro's independence. In addition, population groups have continually moved around and marriages have not only been entered into between Montenegrins and Serbs, but also with Croats, Albanians and Bosnians.

The latest censuses show that ethnic Montenegrins make up 45% of the population, Serbs 28.7%, Albanians 4.9%, Bosnians 8.7% and other groups a total of 12.7%. About 6000 Roma live permanently in Montenegro, most of them in the Podgorica area. Podgorica is the capital and largest city of Montenegro with about 177,000 inhabitants (2017).
