The biggest part of the lake belongs to Montenegro, which consists 2/3 of the lake Skadar. Lake was declared a national park in 1983.

    Most authors agree that the Skadar Lake basin is of tectonic origin which had been formed due to the complex folding and faulting. According to different sources, the period of lake formation dated from the creation and till 65 million years ago. Previously, lake was a bay of the Adriatic sea and now it is divided by alluvial neck. Alimentation of lake is realized at the expanse of 6 rivers, the biggest among them are Morača and Crnojevića. It falls into Bojana river near the city of Shkodër in northern Albania.

    Forte Mare fortress, which means "Sea fortress", stands on the rocks in the southern part of Old Town of Herceg Novi. It is located near the main port of Herceg Novi, on the coast of the Bay of Kotor.

    It is assumed that the first stone was laid here at the end of the XIV century (in 1382) by the Bosnian king Tvrtko I to protect the city from attacks from sea. According to some reports, facing the bay fortress wall at that time had a special attachment for the mooring of ships approaching the city. A monument to the king is still on the waterfront opposite the Maritime Fortress.
    Forte Mare fortress ("Sea fortress") in Herceg Novi, Montenegro.
    This part of the ancient fortifications initiated the founding of the city of Herceg Novi and in the Middle Ages, protected the city of Herceg Novi from attacks. Since then, the castle was rebuilt many times, and its present appearance is already far from the original.

    Until the 18th century, during the Turkish and Venetian rule, the castle had been subjected to renovation and expanded several times - in addition, defensive fortifications were built to the fortress - teeth on the defensive walls and loopholes for guns. In that times, this fortress was called Yak Kula (Jaka Kula) or "Kula Abaspashe", which means "powerful fortress".

    When in the XVII century the town of Herceg Novi came into the possession of the Venetians, a new name of the fortress appeared - Forte Mare, which means Marine Tower (Marine kula).

    In the middle of 19th century, during the reign of the Ottoman Empire, the Austrians again decided to transform the castle. In 1833 a large-scale reconstruction was carried out and at that time the Forte Mare gained its final form, which can be seen today. Multitude of secret passages, manholes and ladders were built in the fortress.

    After the tumultuous events of the first half of the 20th century, it was decided to give a fortress in civil use. In 1952, an open-air theater was built on the territory of the fortress, and began to let the tourists in. Later in its walls discos and concerts of various "stars" began to hold. Now Forte Mare is a famous tourist site, and through the gate in its walls, you can walk straight from the beach to the top of the fortress. If you climb to the upper floors of the fort, a spectacular panoramic view of the city of Herceg Novi, on the surrounding Bay of Kotor, and even the Adriatic Sea will be in front of you.

    How to reach the Marine fortress in Herceg Novi?

    The quickest way to get to the castle is from the Pet Danica promenade. Near the castle is also the main port of the city and an outdoor pool. Fortress by wall one goes straight to the embankment and it can be walked around. To get inside the castle, you need to pay one euro per ticket, which is a cardboard booklet with a brief story about the history of the castle in the English and Serbian languages.

    Currently, the fortress is a symbol of the city of Herceg Novi and historical attractions throughout Montenegro.

    The medieval fortress of St. Mary in Budva, also known as the Citadel, is one of the most monumental buildings of the Old City. Completely autonomous construction, in the past equipped with everything necessary in the event of a long siege, is considered an important monument of fortification architecture, which today plays the role of a popular tourist attraction and cultural and entertainment center.

    In historical sources, the fortress of St. Mary was first mentioned in 1425. It was built to protect Budva from attacks from the sea in cases where the strength of ordinary city walls was no longer sufficient. Inside the bastion there was an arsenal and supplies of food, which made it possible to withstand successfully the long siege, and the multi-layered arrangement of fortress walls guaranteed the inaccessibility and strength of the Citadel.

    The citadel is the keeper of the Budvanian history, located on the southern part of the rocky reef in the old Budva. The citadel was built in the beginning of 840, but, unfortunately, only the northern tower and the northern and eastern walls remained. But the buildings of the XV century: the buildings of the former barracks, the gates, fortress walls and the ruins of the Church of St. Mary, are perfectly preserved to this day. Two intertwined fish, in which, according to the legend, two lovers turned into two, thrown into the sea because their parents did not allow them to marry - are a symbol of Budva and adorn the bas-relief of the Citadel's wall. On the territory of the fortress (entrance to which costs 2 euros), there is a museum, a restaurant and an observation deck from which you can see all the beauties of Budva. Every year, the festival "Grad Theater" is held on its territory, during which various theatrical performances, exhibitions and concerts take place. During this period, the old town of Budva turns into a real city of art.

    In the south-western part of the fortress there are luxurious residential apartments in three levels, and above there is an observation point from which you can see the whole city and the surrounding coast.

    Гуляя по Старому городу Будва, вы наверняка увидите старую постройку, глядя на которую у вас даже мысли не возникнет, что это может быть Домом Божьим. И все же, это древнейшее каменное строение является храмом, возведенным в далеком XIX веке.

    Церковь Девы Марии (Santa Maria In Punta) в старом городе Будва является одной из 8-ми святынь Черногории, связанных с именем Богородицы. Святая Дева Мария считается официальным покровителем этого популярного города в Черногории. Небольшая и незаметная на первый взгляд, она является одним из самых старых строений в городе, однако в данный момент не действует.

    Древний католический храм Девы Марии расположен в крепостной стене старой части города Будва на юго-западной его окраине, о чём и говорит приставка «In Punta»  в названии, т.е. «на кончике». Церковь находится на самом краю города возле Цитадели и напротив известной церкви Святой Троицы, в которой до сих пор проводятся службы. Храм имеет общую стену с православной церковью Святого Савы, основателя Сербской православной церкви. Это совсем небольшой храм, площадью 15 кв.м., который в настоящий момент также не действует. Во время правления венецианцев здесь служились и православные литургии и католические мессы. На стенах церкви, несмотря на сильнейшее землетрясение, до сих пор сохранились фрагменты фресок середины XII века. По одной из легенд, именно с того места, где сейчас стоит церковь, святой Сава отправился в паломничество в Иерусалим.

    Возведение святыни датируется 840 годом, когда в Будву прибыли бенедиктианские монахи из Испании, что делает её одним из самых старых зданий во всей Черногории. , Вполне возможно, что храм был частью целого монастырского комплекса, который в то время находился рядом. По легенде, рядом с крепостной стеной монахи ордена бенедиктинцев установили икону Богородицы и позвали всех христиан поклониться лику Девы Марии только для того, чтобы узнать, есть ли в городе христиане. В IX веке они здесь уже были – людей пришло очень много, поэтому на этом месте решили возвести церковь имени Святой, изображённой на иконе. Древний текст, оставленный монахами на камне в северной стене, говорит о постройке храма. Эта надпись является свидетельством возведения Святыни и одной из главных достопримечательностей Будвы. В  XIV веке церковь была под владением ордена францисканцев. В 1807 году она перестала действовать, так как в город вошла армия Наполеона, превратившая храм в конюшню.

    Католическая церковь Святой Девы Марии несколько отличается от прочих черногорских святых строений. Сооружение является смешением архитектурных стилей, что, вероятно, связано с многократными реставрационными работами. Архитектурный памятник построена в форме неправильного прямоугольника, с боковой стороны храма находится вход. Главный алтарь был возведен раньше боковых стен восточной и западной сторон. По форме арок нефа можно заметить влияние готики XIII века. Каменный фасад с колокольней сложен из грубых камней и построен в «деревенском» стиле. Церковь имеет несколько прямоугольных окон неравного размера, а на стенах расположены фрески, датированные серединой XII века. Раньше в церковном алтаре хранилась главная городская святыня — чудотворная икона Девы Марии, так называемая «Будванская Богородица», долгие годы защищавшая город от болезней и врагов. В 1807 году, незадолго до осады Будвы армией Наполеона, ее успели перенести в церковь Святого Иоанна, где она храниться до сих пор. Стоит отметить, что это был очень правильный ход, так как французские войска устроили в ней конюшню.

    В настоящее время Церковь Девы Марии используется как музейная достопримечательность, а также, в дни городских праздников, служит местом проведения музыкальных вечеров и площадкой фестиваля классической музыки «Песни Медитерраны» поскольку в ней уникальная акустика.

    Niagara is one of the loudest waterfalls in Montenegro. Local people named it after American Niagara waterfall. In contrast to its famous namesake, Montenegrin "Niagara" is much smaller, but quite broad, beautiful and fast (especially when flood), located in an easily accessible place for any local person or tourist. In fact, this "reduction" of Niagara waterfall makes good on Montenegrin nature. The waterfall is located not far away from Podgorica, in a few kilometers from Cem river (Cijevna) flows into Morača river.

    Cem river originates in Prokletije, Albania, flows into Morača river and continues its way in Skadar lake. Cem is a small river, its depth does not exceed 10 meters. Though the decision was taken to build a dam, which created waterfall. The dam was built to the south of Podgorica and a small water storage reservoir was created. Overflowing the dam, water falls from 10 meters height.

    After a while, water has made its way through the rocks and created one main waterfall and some smaller side waterfalls. When Cem river starts flowing from both sides, waterfall provides the bright impression during snow melting or heavy rain. You can enjoy this view sitting on the bench or at the restaurant located near waterfall. By the way, the restaurant creates an additional attractiveness as a tourist spot. The restaurant is designed in country style. Here you can try fresh caught fish and many delicious local dishes.

    At a height of about 925m above the sea, in Prokletije mountains, in the National park of the same name, numerous Ali-Pasha’s Springs shoot and join together in one new big stream flow, surrounded by beautiful mountain landscapes. There is an opinion, that water of Ali-Pasha is rich of minerals and has health properties. Springs are located in Plav town-council, 1km to the south from Gusinje village and 10km from Plav lake. Ali-Pasha’s Springs shoot at the foot of Prokletije river and occupy an area of 300m2. 

    Speed of the stream depends on the season and varies from 1 to 1,5 m. In Winter it becomes three times faster. Having a big area, springs flow into Vruja river and merge with Plav lake. Appearance, water shadows and play of light are especially charming at sunset.

    The Springs of Ali Pasha named after Ali Pasha of Gusinje, Albanian commander, who tried to impose Albanian rule in this region after the decision of the Congress of Berlin in 1878 was taken and the borders of the independent Montenegro were defined.

    There are not so many tourists in Gusinje, therefore here you can completely enjoy local hospitality and natural food from local shops and cafes.

    Drugi po veličini kanjon u Crnoj Gori koji se karakteriše strmim obalama - Kanjon reke Morača.

    Reka Morača je najveća pritoka Skadarskog jezera. Kanjon izgleda kao da sastoji od dva dela: ravnog, koji se uliva u jezero opštine Podgorica i planinskog koji počinje na severnom delu Crne Gore kod planine Ržača. Tačno na planinskom delu svog toka reka je probila u stenama kanjon dubine do 1000 m, koji se odlikuje strmim obalama, ali zahvaljujući glavnom putu koji se proteže duž njega, odlično je poznat većini turista.

    Lokacija: kanjon se nalazi u srednjem delu toka reke Morača pre njenog izlaza na Zetsku ravnicu, na teritoriji opština Podgorice i Kolašina.

    Dužina reke Morača je više od 100 km, a kroz planinski kanjon se proteže samo 30 km u srednjem delu reke i reže kllisuru koja se sastoji od vertikalnih krastovih stena. U delu Tisovog vrha koji je najdublji u kanjonu, dubina kanjona je oko 1000 m. Kanjon reke Tare ima veću dubinu, ali kanjon reke Morača ima strmije obale.
    Reka Morača je prilično opasna u nekim delovima jer u vreme polava brzina protoka može biti veća od 100 km/s, pored toga je i dovoljno krupna, retko kad njena širina je oko 100 m a dubina nije veća od 5 m.

    Jako je zanimljiva činjenica da bez obzira na visoku opasnost, je glavni magistralni put koji se proteže od primorja Crne Gore do severnog dela države i Srbije. Taj put vredi proći jer je prelep, a pejzaže koje pruža su izvanredni i neverovatni.

    Na obali kanjona se nalazi jedna od najpoznatijih znamenitosti Crne Gore – starinski manastir Morača koji je osnovan 1252. godine. Obično kada turisti prolaze kroz kanjon obavezno posećuju taj manastir. Takođe mnogi ribolovci dolaze na pecanje na obalu, jer je Morača bogata ribom.

    Горный массив Врмац - Рай для пешего туризма.​

    Врмац (Vrmac) – это гора расположенная на одноимённом полуострове, которая находится на юго-западе Черногории и разделяет Боко-Которскую бухту на тиватскую икоторскую части залива. С которской стороны под крутыми склонами Врмаца теснятся на узком берегу населенные пункты Мио, Прчань и Столив.С тиватской же стороны горные склоны более пологие и постепенно переходят в обширную тиватскую долину, где и раскинулся курортный город Тиват.У подножия полуострова расположен стадион «Под Врмацем», на котором играет футбольный клуб «Бокель» из Котора.

    Горный массив Врмац является продолжением горы Ловчен, на длинном хребте которого расположено несколько вершин. Самая высокая горная вершина носит название Святого Ильи (черногор. Sveti Ilija) -765 метров над уровнем моря, и именно с неё открывается великолепный панорамный вид на популярные туристические города -Котор и Тиват. Помимо этого на горном хребте находятся: 712-метровая вершина Вели врх (Velji vrh), Чисти врх (Čisti vrh) - 616 м.,Попова Глава(Popova Glava) – 584 м., Чрстви Врх("твёрдая вершина") – 516 м., а также невысокая, но весьма почитаемая среди туристов вершина – Святой Вид (Sveti Vid)- 440 метров над уровнем моря, на которой находится древняя церковь.
    Гора Врмац в Черногории между городами Тиват и Котор.
    Через гору Врмац проходит автомобильный тоннель протяжённостью 1 637 метров, который соединяет город Котор с Адриатическим шоссе и остальной частью страны.

    Врмац является популярным местом у туристов, которых привлекают пешие прогулки по многочисленным горным тропинкам и катание на горных велосипедах. Кстати, здесь до сих пор сохранились старые пешеходные дорожки, которые пользовались местные жители на протяжении многих веков.

    Интересные факты: Весь полуостров покрыт сетью дорог и укреплений, которые были построены еще во времена Австро-Венгерской империи.

    Среди всех этих горных вершин, на Врмаце находятся несколько маленьких местных деревень, старинные и заброшенные австро-венгерские крепости, древние церкви, обширная сеть туристических пешеходных троп, проходящих по старым военным дорогам, но главное здесь – это уникальное сочетание морского воздуха и хвойных ароматов, благодаря которому Врмац считается лучшим местом для лечения астмы и бронхитов. У подножия горы на границе Столива и Прчаня даже есть санаторий с соответствующей специализацией.

    Интересные факты: В давние времена, когда в районе Бока-Которского залива хозяйничали разные завоеватели – венецианцы, французы, австрийцы, османцы, леса безжалостно вырубались. Сейчас лесной покров Врмаца частично восстановился, а в 2012 году волонтёры высадили на его склонах ещё 6 тысяч саженцев поморского бора – особого вида сосны, лучше всего чувствующего себя в средиземноморском климате.

    Как добраться до вершин горного хребта Врмац?

    Попасть на гору Врмац можно пешком по многочисленным тропинкам с самого подножия горы, практически из любой точки по периметру залива - так называемые "Pjesacka staza" есть почти в каждом посёлке полуострова, будь то Столив, Прчань, Муо, Лепетане или даже Ластва. Либо есть возможностьподобраться повыше к хребтуна автомобиле - на гору ведёт асфальтированная дорога от форта (деревни) Троица, на перевале между городами Тиват и Котор.

    Lifehack: Несмотря на автомобильные дороги, Врмац всё же интересен и наиболее популярен у людей именно для пешего туризма - тропы не сложные и тщательно промаркированы, а живописные и разнообразные виды на весь Которский залив открываются на протяжении всего маршрута.
    Попасть на гору Врмац можно пешком по многочисленным тропинкам.

    Отправившись на Врмац пешком, можно с легкостью подняться на самую высокую точку - вершину Святого Ильи или дойти до площадки над проливом Вериги и наблюдать, как проходят через него корабли и снуют паромы между Лепетане и Каменари. Также можно вскарабкаться по крутой тропе к церкви Св. Вида, построенной в XV веке, посетить горные деревеньки с древними церквями – Богдашичи, Горни Столив, Горню Ластву.

    Lifehack: Здесь кстати проходит живописная старая дорога в Котор. Сейчас она немноголюдная и мало кем используется для целей попадания в Котор, т.к. уже несколько лет существует туннель, соединяющий эти города Черногории.
    Cамая высокая точка горы Врмац в Черногории - вершина Святого Ильи.
    Если идёте на гору Врмац в первый раз, то советуем взять с собой карту или навигатор, а также выбирайте наименее крутой и безопасный подъем, который берёт своё начало в населенном пункте Donja Lastva, недалеко от отеля Perper. Остальные пути немного сложнее и проходят через тернистые заросли кустарника. В начале дорога широкая и асфальтированная, и идти по ней конечно приятно. На высоте примерно 260 м. над уровнем моря находится древнееселение - Gornja Lastva, там заканчивается асфальт и начинается горная пешеходная тропа. По дороге на вершину Святого Ильи, если конечно у вас есть время, можно быстренько заскочить в церковь Святого Вида.

    Независимо от того, каким из способов вы попадете на горный хребет Врмац, оказавшись на самой вершине вам откроется вся Бока Которска (серб. и черногор. Boka Kotorska, буквально — «Которское устье») как в сторону Тивата, так и в сторону Котора. Помимо этого на горе произрастает шикарный сосновый лес, гулять по которому и дышать целебным воздухом одно удовольствие. Целебность воздуха кстати усиливается большим количеством растений, произрастающих здесь, например заросли можжевельника или обильные кусты шалфея.

    Вдоволь нагулявшись по горному хребту, и дабы разнообразить ваш маршрут, мы советуем спускаться уже другой дорогой, которая проходит вдоль горного хребта Vrmac над побережьем (внизу будут Stoliv и Prcanj), ведёт к крепости Врмац (Tvrdava Vrmac) и заканчивается населенным пунктом-крепостью Троица (Trojica). Насладившись красотами окружающей природы, теперь можно со спокойной душой спускаться вниз по лесному серпантину, одновременно наблюдая потрясающие виды старого города Котор, крепости Святого Ивана (Иоанна) над ним, Боко-Которского залива и всего горного массива Ловчен (Lovcen).
    Тропа вдоль горного хребта Врмац (Vrmac) в Черногории.
    Во время всего пути стоит быть внимательными и смотреть под ноги, так как на тропинках вам могут встретиться друзья наши меньшие. Одевайте удобную и плотную обувь для пеших прогулок по горам, а также обязательно возьмите с собой защитный крем от солнца, головной убор, что-нибудь перекусить и достаточный запас воды, а также фотоаппарат, чтобы сделать захватывающие и запоминающиеся фотографии, и самое главное - хорошее настроение!

    Lifehack: Родник с водой есть в поселении Gornja Lastva, а на небольшой полузаброшенной ферме около крепости Врмац (Tvrdava Vrmac) можно найти колодец.

    Полное время подъема но гору зависит от уровня подготовки путешественника - прогулочным шагом с перерывами на фотосессии до крайней точки можно добраться за 4-5 часов, но можно и намного быстрее. Таким образом путешествие по горному массиву Врмац довольно длительное и может занять практически целый день.
    Достопримечательности и популярные места на горе Врмац.

    Лучший вид на Старый город Котор.

    Чтобы попасть на смотровую площадку, с которой открывается лучший вид на Котор, нужно от форта Троица проехать три витка серпантина, пока не закончится асфальтированная дорога. С неё можно рассмотреть Котор во всех деталях: видна каждая крыша, яхты у берега. Именно отсюда отчетливо видны местные поселения которской части залива - Ораховац, Доброта, Люта, Шкаляри. Над Старым Градом Котор видна гора Ловчен, а немного слева – гора Пестин Град (Pestin Grad). Эта природная достопримечательность Котора заслуживает отдельного внимания и обязательного посещения. В горе Пестин Град с этой высоты видна большая черная дыра – пещера нимфы (Vilina pečina - Вилина печина).

    Интересные факты: Местные жители рассказывают, что в этой пещере обитает добрая нимфа Алкима, которая оберегает черногорцев от разных напастей. В лунные ночи можно увидеть, как нимфа плывет по небу в своей золотой лодочке от Пестин Града к Врмацу.

    Австро-венгерские крепости и дороги.

    Весь полуостров Врмац оплетён сетью дорог и укреплений, которые были построены еще во времена Австро-Венгерской империи. Справедливости ради стоит конечно отметить, что эти укрепления на стратегически важных пунктах были еще задолго до прихода на эти земли австрийцев. В те времена Гора Врмац, разделяющая Которский и Тиватский заливы Которской бухты, играла важную стратегическую роль для военного контроля над прилегающими территориями. Поэтому неудивительно, что Австро-Венгерская империя, получившая власть над черногорскими землями в XIX веке, сразу же занялась модернизацией старых фортов, строительством новых оборонительных сооружений, а также выкладкой камнем магарских ("магарац" – "осел") горных троп.
    Сторожевой пост и горная тропа на территории форта Врмац на горе Врмац в Черногории
    Первый из фортов, Троица, находится на дороге Котор-Тиват, на развилке над селением Шкалярями. Именно тут находится перекресток нескольких дорог, ведущих в Национальный парк Ловченив Цетинье, в сторону Будвы и Тивата, в Котор, а также наверх на гору Врмац. В XIX веке здесь проходила граница Австрии и Черногории, поэтому форт имел исключительное стратегическое значение.

    Несчётное число раз мы и наверняка многие туристы, бродившие по горам вокруг залива, говорили слова благодарности австрийским дорожным инженерам. Их стараниями наши прогулки по горе Врмац – одно удовольствие. Конечно, местами эти дороги уже заросли кустами, кое-где их размыло дождями или накрыло осыпями, но всё-таки, после ухода австрийцев прошло уже сто лет, а качество работы австрийских строителей до сих пор вызывает уважение.

    Еще одной из таких австрийских оборонительных крепостей является форт Врмац. Находится крепость на вершине горы Врмац, недалеко от поселка Мио (Myu). Крепость Врмац была построена в 1860 году, и в ее конструкции воплотились все достижения фортификационной науки того времени. Сооружение имеет в плане трапециевидную форму и состоит из тыльной части (которая называется «горжа») и двух орудийных казематов, направленных в сторону Тиватского и Которского заливов. Снаряды для дальнобойных орудий подавались из подземного арсенала с помощью механизированного лифта. Крепость была окружена глубоким рвом, который простреливался с боковых капониров. Над поверхностью земли можно насчитать два этажа, но гораздо большая высота форта была врыта вглубь холма.

    Во время прогулок по горному массиву Врмац можно посетить и другие четыре древнейших форта, но они поменьше, а также четыре укрепления артиллерии, четыре казармы, три смотровых площадки и два склада амуниции. Все ключевые точки соединены продуманной системой дорог и множеством мелких объектов инфраструктуры.

    Деревушки Горня Ластва и Донья Ластва.

    На вершине горы Врмац расположилось старинное село Горня Ластва (Верхняя Ластва). Здесь можно посетить церковь Святой Марии XVI века, которая известна своим великолепным алтарем из цветного лигурийского, белого каррарского и зеленого мрамора. Другая, еще более древняя церковь IX века находится недалеко, на скале Святого Вида.

    Селение Горня Ластва впервые упоминается в XIV веке в которском Статуте как часть которских владений. Расцвет села пришёлся на XIX и начало XX в.в.. После Второй мировой войны жители начали активно отселяться вниз, в Донью Ластву и Тиват – ближе к рабочим местам. Но, что интересно, село не умерло, хотя лишь несколько человек живут в нём круглый год. Летом жизнь кипит, люди возвращаются в свои «породичны кучи» – семейные усадьбы, потому что в горах намного приятнее пережидать летнюю жару, а дома на берегу можно сдать туристам. Да и вне летнего сезона село то и дело оживает: сюда приезжают крестить детей, венчаться, праздновать «славу» – день святого покровителя семьи. В период сбора урожая маслин село тоже не пустует.

    Из села Горня Ластва, с высоты 300 метров над уровнем моря, открываются великолепные виды на город Тиват и его знаменитый элитный район - Порто Монтенегро, остров Святого Марка и остров Цветов, полуостров Луштицу и Которский залив. Склоны вокруг Горней Ластвы серебрятся оливами. Здесь растут тысячи деревьев, посаженных древними поколениями ластовлян. До сих пор в этих местах сохранилась давильня для производства оливкового масла, а раньше их тут было несколько, и все они беспрерывно действовали по два-три месяца, пока не переработают весь урожай.

    В Горней Ластве, в её лучшие времена, находилось четыре большие церкви и четырнадцать маленьких, в основном принадлежавших влиятельным семьям. В верхней части Горни Ластвы сохранилась церковь Рождества Богородицы, построенная в 1410 году. Её барочный алтарь из разноцветного мрамора раньше принадлежал храму Госпа од Шкрпьела, что на острове возле города Пераст. В XIX веке там установили более богатый алтарь, а старый передали в Горню Ластву. Церковь служит культурным и смысловым центром селения, здесь нередко проводятся концерты, на которые собираются слушатели со всего тиватского побережья.

     Lifehack: Горню Ластву прекрасно видно из самого города Тивата – это вполне заметная группа оранжевых крыш среди деревьев и горных вершин.

    Местечко Донья Ластва (Нижняя ластва) находится на побережье и является памятником культурного и исторического значения. А прекрасные виды из Доньи Ластвы сами по себе являются достопримечательностью здешних мест. Поселение Донья Ластва и её окрестности прекрасно подходят любителям спокойного и неторопливого отдыха.

    Горная вершина Святой Вид на горе Врмац.

    На горном хребте Врмац расположена невысокая, но весьма почитаемая среди местных жителей вершина – Святой Вид. Здесь на высоте 440 метров над уровнем моря расположилась древняя церковь. Первое документальное упоминание о храме относится к первой трети XII века, но ее расположение и способ постройки говорят о том, что она была сооружена гораздо раньше.
    Горная вершина Святой Вид на горе Врмац.
    Не будет лишним посещение и других горных деревушек с находящимися там старинными церквями – Горни Столив и Богдачиши. Например, в Богдашичах сохранилась церковь Св. Петра, которая была построена предположительно в IX или X в.в. На фасаде есть надпись, что в 1269 году она была передана православным верующим, но в XV веке эта церковь снова стала католической.

    В целом, посещение горного хребта Врмац – это очень простой и довольно быстрый способ окунутся в сказочную и одновременно "дикую" природу Черногории. Всего 10 - 15 минут езды от Тивата или Котора – и вы чудесным образом окажитесь среди первозданной и неописуемой красоты Врмаца. Так что скорее берите друзей, родных и близких и отправляйтесь в незабываемое приключение!

The whole picture is completed with bunches of grapes, pomegranate and fig growing just on steep slopes of the canyon. The Cievna river is a classical embodiment of the beauty of Montenegrin rivers. The name of the river Cijevna originates from a word «cijev», which means "tube". It is because the lower stream of river-bed looks like a tube - water flows at a depth of 15m into a strait 1m wide. River-bed is of of karstic origin, takes its rise from Prokletije mountains and flows into the Moraca river.

    Dobrota is a small village in Montenegro, on the shore Kotor Bay. The population of the village is about 8,200 people. Dobrota stretches for several kilometers along the picturesque coastline, from the ancient city of Kotor to the village of Ljuta, and is rightfully considered one of the most beautiful settlements of the Bay of Kotor.
     
    History of the city.

    About 750 years ago, it was the time when the first mention of Dobrota occurred - the village was called Dabratum. The current name appeared a little later, when the settlement became a part of Kotor. Over 300 years, from 1371 to 1704, Dobrota was its suburb. The greatest prosperity Dobrota reached in the 17th and 19th centuries, when there was a fairly large pier, many ships, and everyone was trained for naval work. In 1717, Dobrota received the status of a seaside settlement. Rich captains of local vessels built beautiful baroque palaces here, furnishing them with valuable furniture, decorating with picturesque canvases and exotic plants, filling libraries with ancient books. The most famous palaces that have survived to our time are the houses of the Tripkovic, Dabinovic, Ivanovic, Radonicici and Milosevic. And the wives of the sailors from Dobrota became famous for weaving the finest lace which they made in the periods of maritime wanderings of their husbands.

    In Dobrota at the time of greatest prosperity, the majority of noble families who became rich in maritime trade settled. In memory of this era there remained a large number of "captain palaces", among which the Palace of Ivanovici occupies not the last place. Built in the Baroque style, it has become one of the most notable buildings of the Bay Coast in this part of the Bay of Kotor. The palace was built in the second half of the 18th century for the captain's family of Ivanovici. The Ivanovici was considered one of the richest families of Dobrota - by the beginning of the XIX century they had 11 houses in Dobrota. Thriven on sailing, in the 18th century there were 28 ships in their property, they traded with Italian and Albanian ports. During the war between Venice and Turkey in 1714-1718 Ivanovici allocated part of his fleet for the liberation of Ulcinj from the Turks, for which they received praise from the Venetian governor Alvise Mocenigo. In 1756 the brothers Mark and Joseph Ivanovic defeated the Turks in a sea battle near the Greek port of Piraeus, after which they were knighted and awarded with the Order of St. Mark.
    Дворец Ивановичей
    The Palace of Ivanovici is a typical Baroque one, consisting of four floors and a gazebo. The palace was built on a high place and completely surrounded by a closed fence. You can enter the courtyard through the stone gate, which is decorated with the Ivanovic family coat of arms. The interior has several terraces with various plants, to which the stone stairs leads. Under the terraces, along the walls of the fence, there are utility rooms. The symmetrical facade of the palace is composed of small hewn stone, on the second and third floors in the center are balconies with openwork grating made of wrought iron. All windows and doorways have characteristic features of baroque style, the platbands are decorated in the form of stylized acanthus leaves. The interior of the palace is richly decorated with stucco molding, and the floor is laid with stony slabs in checkerboard pattern.

    The palace of the Milosevic family in Dobrota has gone down in history under the name "Veliki Palac". The Milosevic Palace has the largest dimensions among similar buildings. The palace was built in 1828 by sea captains and ship owners - the brothers Milosevic. They also belonged to the ship "Nemirna" (Restless), which became the last sailboat in the Bay of Kotor. In general, the Milosevic family was ranked the 12th among the sea families of Dobrota in terms of wealth, the number of seamen and captains. In the XIX century, they owned nine ships and six houses on the coast. The building is a four-story palace with a wide belvedere and late baroque features. It is surrounded by a stone wall of a fence, behind which there is an internal terrace.
    Дворец Милошевичей
    Since the palace was intended immediately for two owners, it was built as a semi-detached house and functionally divided into two identical and symmetrical parts. Also, the yard is divided into two parts, which can be accessed through two different gates decorated with monograms with the initials of the owners - "NM" and "VM". Similarly, the facade of the palace at the level of the third floor has two balconies with a metal balustrade. Inside the building on each floor there are two central salons, from which you can get to other rooms. The stairs are located in the outer wings. In the palace, still in its pristine form, there are internal storage rooms, as well as rooms with high ceilings. This is the only palace in Dobrota with two different facades, the main one with a view of the sea, the rear one with a view of the mountains. And in the south-eastern part of the palace there is an unusual corner tower with a cannon embrasure built in the style of a ship one.

    The majestic appearance and the greatest fame among all the "captain palaces" of the Kotor Bay, built in the area of Kotor Dobrota, has the mansion of the Tripkovic family. It is made in the Baroque style, in the decor there is an abundance of bright decorative elements. The monumentality and splendor of this palace contrasts against the background of Mount Orjen, covered only by rough and bare rocks. The Tripkovic family played an important role in the life of Kotor, especially in such areas as trade, navigation, construction and culture. It is known that this family owned 18 vessels, and almost 86 people of this kind were sailors, and 63 - in the rank of the ship captain. One of them, Andrija Tripkovic, was the head of the local commune and was a member of Kotor administration. In addition to the palace, the family owned 6 more houses, but this palace was the most expensive of them - in 1808 it was estimated at 7,000 Austrian forints, which became an absolute record for the village of Dobrota.
    Oсобняк семьи Трипковичей
    The palace was built at the end of the XVIII century by the order of Captain Andrij Tripkovic. The building is a bit away from the shore and is on a hill, surrounded by a stone parapet with a family coat of arms above the entrance and long balustrades, behind which a small garden hides, several more gardens are behind the house. On the shore in front of the palace there is a sea dock with the embankment. The palace itself, made of Korcula stone, has three floors and a belvedere with a baroque pediment, this belvedere is crowned with a small turret. On the main facade at the level of the third floor there is a balcony, which supporting structure is covered with ornamentation from the leaves of acanthus.

    Besides palaces in Dobrota there are several ancient churches. One of them - the baroque church of St. Matthew was built in the 17th century, it has the famous icon of Giovanni Bellini "Madonna and Child". The Church of St. Elijah is considered the oldest monument of architecture in Montenegro, it was built in the 11th century and it is preserved till our days. And in the church of St. Eustace, built in 1773, there is an interesting collection of laces from 17-18 centuries (52 canvases in total) and a unique ancient mosaic that adorns the altar. Among the old buildings there is also the Radončić mansion built in the 19th century and renovated in 2012, inside which the Institute of Marine Biology is located today.

    There are fewer visitors here, and consequently, rest is calmer than on the Budva coast. Dobrota itself, the neighborhood of which is buried in the green of citrus and olive trees, is very cozy and hospitable. Here visitors are awaited for the pure sea and entertainments which usually assumes beach rest. For fans of shopping in Dobrota there are various shops, a small market where you can buy fresh fruits and a touching souvenir to commemorate this place. Tourists, finding themselves here, always note the harmony that reigns in the coastal part of the city, where charming cottages with their own bays, small beaches and berths for boats are located.
    Окрестности города
    The beach zone, about 7 km long, runs along the whole village and consists of concrete and pebble areas. The place is replete with various cafes, bars and restaurants. The lack of spacious sandy beaches is completely compensated by the magnificent views of Kotor Bay. Unlike the beaches of many major tourist centers, the coast of Dobrota is extremely rare can be seen crowded with vacationers.
     
    What to see in the vicinity of the city?

    Despite the developed infrastructure of hotels, shops and restaurants in Dobrota, the most interesting events are still in Kotor, which is 4 km from the city. The medieval fortified city of Kotor is a real architectural gem in the crown of the Mediterranean coast. Visit the Old Town, which is more than 2 thousand years old, and all this time it remained one of the important seaports and shopping centers of the Adriatic. Here behind the fortress walls were preserved the palaces of rich families, churches, towers and fountains - all now is under the protection of UNESCO. It is worth to climb the walls and fortress of St. John and see the unique landscape of Kotor Bay.

    If you move to the north, then you will get to the nearest village Orahovac - the greenest one in Kotor Bay. It is famous for its beaches with clear water, ancient oaks and wild pomegranates. The next settlement is the city of Perast. It is picturesque, like any other city on the Mediterranean coast. However, this Adriatic town is distinguished by its architecture, reflecting its glorious past. It is like an open-air museum, showing guests magnificent examples of baroque architecture against the background of natural scenery of Kotor Bay. Many buildings of the city are like real palaces. After all, once in the city lived 12 noble families, and they erected the very Baroque mansions and churches, for which Perast is proud to this day. In addition, deductions to the treasury from maritime trade and customs privileges, along with income from military campaigns against pirates, brought huge amount of money, which contributed to the prosperity of the city.

    The uniqueness of Perast is also in the fact that near the city there are 2 islands, inseparable from the city both geographically and historically. One of them is the island of Gospa od Škrpjela or as it is also called Our Lady of the Rocks - this is the only man-made island in the Adriatic.

     Lifehack: you can get to the island by water taxi from Perast. The fare is 5 € per person. The travel time will take only a couple of minutes, but you will have time to make amazingly beautiful photos.

    The second one is the island of St. George (Sveti Dordje), which carries the second name "Island of the Dead". Here is the cemetery, where famous captains of Perast were buried. The island is very picturesque, but you can admire it only from the water, because it is closed for visitors.

    How to get to the city?

    If you flew to Tivat airport, then you can take a taxi and in 20 minutes you will be in the village. The city is conveniently located on the coast and wherever you are resting, in the Budva or Herceg Nova Riviera, you can get there by bus. But you need to be careful and specify the route of the bus, it must go through Kotor, and not through the ferry. Although such a journey is not without the charm, because the ferry crosses the Verige Strait - one of the narrowest and most picturesque straits of the Bay of Kotor. In ancient times in the XVII century, in order to prevent the path to the pirates, it was blocked by chains - verigami. Hence the so unusual name of the strait itself. Despite its size, the strait is quite restless due to the strong current. That's why swimming it is not recommended. The average depth of the strait is 30 meters, and the width in the narrowest place is 300 meters. And of course moving around on a rented car, you can stop at any place you like and travel from Dobrota to different directions.

    In a series of medieval monasteries on Skadar Lake, Monastery Kom, tribal church of Crnojevic, has a special place. It was built at the foot of mountain Odrinska away from prying eyes, and differs from Balshich monasteries very much, built on the hills of the lake.

    The Monastery of Kom is a generic church of Alex and Giurgiu Crnojevic. Kom church is dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin. Historical sources about erecting the church is silent, but it is assumed that it was built in the period from 1415 to 1427. It was a time of difficult foreign policy situation for the Slavic state Zeta - on one side the Ottoman Empire tread, on the other - the Republic of Venice. Therefore, all the monasteries of that period resembled a fortress in their appearance. Kom, in this sense, was not an exception - it was built on a high hill surrounded by marshland, and the protective wall with two gates was built around the monastery. Kom Monastery was quite rich, fertile land belonged to it, on which the vineyards grew and pastures where cattle fed. For some time even the residence of Zeta Metropolitan Church situated here, after it had left the monastery Miholska Prevlaka and St Nicholas on the island Vranjina in turn.

    But the rapid development of the monastery was not destined to last long - in 1478 the Turks captured the fortress Zabljak, Ivan Crnojevic moved the capital to a new place, where in 1485 established the Cetinje Monastery, where, he handed over all the property of the Kom Monastery. This led to a rapid abandonment of the monastery, in the XVI-XVIII centuries there were only occasional services in the local church.

    In the XIX century the monastery Kom supported priests and monks from neighboring monasteries. In 1831, as a tribute to the traditions of Zeta Metropolitanate and the glorious past of the princes Crnojevic, there was ordained to the rank of Archimandrite Petar II Petrovic Njegos.

    Collegiate Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a simple single-nave building with side chapels and a wooden narthex. It was painted in two stages - first in 1470 and then in the 80s of the XVI century. Today, this church is the only one with preserved original frescoes among the monasteries of Skadar Lake.

    Since 1999, a monk, and currently the abbot, the father Chrysostom (Nesic), with God's help and grace of the Holy Mother of God, which is dedicated to the monastery and, with his efforts and help of pious people, renewing and building up part by part this great shrine.

    The Holy Liturgy is served in Kom monastery every day, except for the days of Lent, as provided by the Holy Fathers rules.

Rent of yachts, motor boats, boats, catamarans, scooters, canoes, SUP-s and other types of water transport in Montenegro for walks, outdoor activities or fishing in the Adriatic sea or on Skadar lake.

Montenegro is a small country on the Balkan Peninsula, which is washed by the Adriatic Sea. The Montenegrin coast is divided into two parts: Bay of Kotor, where the Tivat, Kotor and Herceg-Nova Riviera are located and the open Adriatic Sea with the Budva, Bar and Ulcinj Rivieras. Unlike the neighboring countries of the Balkan region, Montenegro has a relatively small coastline - about 300 kilometers. Nevertheless, today, renting yachts, motor boats, boats, catamarans, scooters and other types of water transport in Montenegro is one of the most popular services among tourists from all over the world.

Rest in Montenegro is unlikely to be complete if you do not find the time and will not go out even once to the open sea on a yacht or boat. None of the types of outdoor activities are able to give such stunning emotions as a boat trip / yacht / catamaran / motor boat / and other sailing in open water. Rent of yachts, motor boats, boats, catamarans, scooters, kayaks, SUP-s, etc. Is a pleasure that sometimes costs more than many other entertainments, but emotions also cause this kind of rest too special and memorable for many years ...
