Having been published for 66 years, it is the oldest Montenegrin newspaper still in circulation.

Initially, Pobjeda it was originally a newsletter of the new Communist authorities in Montenegro. The first issue of Pobjeda was published on 24 October 1944 in Nikšić as a part of the National liberation front of Montenegro. Until September 1997 it was the only daily paper imprinted in Montenegro. For many decades, in time of SFR Yugoslavia, Pobjeda has been sold on the newsstands in Belgrade, Zagreb, Sarajevo, Split and other biggest cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia.

In the same tιme, many newsstands in Montenegro were owned by Pobjeda. After the breakup of Yugoslavia, copies of Pobjeda were sold in Montenegro and Serbia. On 21st of May, 2010 Pobjeda was for the first time printed in Latin script, after 66 years of being printed in Cyrillic.
