Karver bookstore

Karver is an open area - bookstore - gallery - café - internet club and is settled in the centre of Podgorica, near the hotel Crna Gora and the Gallery of Artists' Association, at the bank of river Ribnica, under the bridge that connects two parts of Podgorica, the centre and the new part of the city, known as Old airport. Karver is settled in the building of hamam, an old Turkish bath, that was built at the end of the past century and represents the cultural heritage of the city.
The place is surrounded with the river and the green area. It is shadowed during the whole day, thanks to the bridge that hangs over it. During the summer period, the temperature is several degrees lower than in the city. It gives the pleasure of complete silence, with the music chosen by us.
On the area 150m², Karver offers more than 6000 titles from the various publishers from the whole region, written on the south Slovenian, Albanian and English language (Algoritam, AGM, Buybook, CID, Dereta, Durieux, Feral, Geopoetika, Golden marketing, Laguna, Lom, Meander, Mono & Manjana, Narodna knjiga, Oxford, Paideia, Penguin, Plima, Profil, Prometej, Rad, Samizdat B92, Školska knjiga, Toena, Unireks,...) monographies and informators about Montenegro on several languages; different magazines in Italian, English, German and French language (Almanah, Art, Art & Decoration, Ars, Business week, Cosmopolitan, Fantom slobode, Jazz magazine, Le Figaro, Newsweek, O - the Oprah magazine, Photography, Premier, Politikin zabavnik, Sarajevske sveske, Sodobnost, Time, The New Yorker, Vogue,...) and also the representative choice of pictures of Montenegrin artists.
Karver is an extraordinary place in Podgorica, visited by many, who often or from time to time, on the way through Podgorica, find the time to enjoy in its ambient.
The bookstore - reading room - gallery - café, has become the place that gathers people and through organizing many promotions, it created connections among many editors and authors from Ex Yugoslavia and Europe.
