Rožaje is a town in northeastern Montenegro. It has a population of 9,567. Rožaje is administrative centre of Rožaje municipality, which has 23,312 residents. Rožaje is considered the centre for the Bosniak community of Montenegro. Bosniaks form the majority in both town and municipality. 


Rožaje was first settled in the 7th century, by Illyrians, Romans and Greeks. Later, during the migration of the Slavs, Slavs settled in the area. Rožaje was first mentioned in 1571 and 1585. The settlement surrounding the then fort was called Trgovište, which it was called until 1912. In 1797 the Ganić kulla, a defensive measurement of the Islamified Kuči (Muslim members of the clan) who supported Muslim authority and culture, was built. Today the building is the town museum. Forces of the Kingdom of Montenegro captured the city in 1912 from the Ottoman Empire, during the First Balkan War. It was officially ceded to Montenegro following the Treaty of London in 1913, ending the war. In 1992, during the Yugoslav wars, Bosniaks of Foča were resettled in Rožaje.


As many of the northern Montenegrin towns, Rožaje is a city with a small number of visitors. The biggest charm of the city is the relatively large Bosnian influences in the city compared to other Montenegrin cities.
