Golubovci (Montenegrin: Golubovci, Голубовци, pronounced [ɡǒluboʋtsi]) is a small town in the Podgorica Municipality of Montenegro. It is the seat of the Golubovci urban municipality, a subdivision of the Podgorica municipality. The town is located some 15 km south of the city of Podgorica, in the fertile Zeta valley. It has 3,110 residents according to 2011 census,[1] while the Golubovci urban municipality accounts for some 16,093 residents.[2]

Sometimes Podgorica Airport is referred as to Golubovci Airport by locals, the airport being just 5 km away from the town.

Golubovci is located on the Podgorica - Bar road (E65/E80), main Montenegrin road connection between the coast and northern part of the country. Part of this highway doubles as Golubovci's main street, which leeds to frequent traffic jams during the summer tourist season.

The town is home to FK Zeta, most successful Montenegrin football club in recent years.
