    The Tara River is the longest mountain river in Montenegro. It is 144 km long. It is the longest canyon in Montenegro and Europe and second longest in the world after Grand Canyon. The canyon stretches along the mountains Durmitor and Sinjajevina, the total length is 82 km and the depth is 1300 meters. The canyon is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is a part of Durmitor National Park. The Tara deep river with its crystal clear water emerges from the confluence of the Opasnica and Veruša Rivers. It flows over Montenegro in the north and over Bosnia and Herzegovina, where it makes confluence with Piva, becomes the Drina river.

    History
    The river was named after the Illyrian tribe "Autariatae", who lived near river bed in IV-V centuries.
    In 1937 a picturesque bridge named after Đurđevića was built, which was the only road connecting south and north lands for a long time. The bridge is amazing with its architecture. It crosses the canyon at the height of 150 meters and consists of five huge arches with the total length 370 meters.
    The Tara river is the biggest river in Montenegro, which is also the biggest natural store in Europe of fresh water suitable for consumption. The bottom of the river is stone without any vegetation, thanks to this water does not require any additional filtration and has an amazing taste.
    Rafting is still the most popular extreme sport in the Tara river region, organized by local agencies in summer. You can order excursion in any resort towns of the shore or by visiting Durmitor or Zhabljak, or Đurđevića Bridge. Besides, the cliffs are also popular among the tourists. Those who fond of hiking, will enjoy special paths of Durmitor park.
    Even if you are not a fan of extreme sports, you should visit the Rata river and the National park of Durmitor. Besides, even at the hottest day, the river brings freshness. The water temperature is never above 12-15°C. There are many mountain lakes. The most famous are Black lake of Durmitor and Beograd Lake near Kolashin.
    There is an amazing forest of black pines (Crna Poda) within the Tara river canyon. It is located between Bistrica and Dobrilovina, 950 meters above the sea. The pines reach 45 meters high and many of them are about 400 years old.
    You can get to the National park of Durmitor and the Tara river canyon faster, if go through Nikšić town. If you are interested in other sightseeing, you should pass by Kolašin take turn to Mojkovac.

    In the Montenegrin city Sutomore, located 11 km from Petrovac, about 2000 people live. In summer, most of it becomes a pedestrian zone: the main street, like in Budva, runs along the coast parallel to the highway. Sutomore is one of the most inexpensive vacation spots on the coast of Montenegro.

    The resort is known for its remarkable pebble (sandy) beaches more than 2.5 km long. There are plenty of opportunities for swimming and diving, as well as traditional beach activities like catamarans, parachutes, "bananas". A small (about 800 m) sandy beach in Sutomore is widely known. As in many places in Montenegro, sand here (due to its mineral composition) has medicinal properties: it brings relief to patients with rheumatism.
    Сутоморе
    In the same bay as the city beach of Sutomore, there is a gravel one "Zlata obala". It is rather narrow, its length is about 250 m, but it is equipped with everything necessary, since it belongs to the hotel with the same name.

    On the outskirts of the city there is a church of St. Phekla. Orthodox and Catholics get along peacefully there: the altar of the first is in the apse, of the second - at the south wall. The church was built in the 12th-14th centuries. And is still used for religious rites. The church cemetery is also home to both Orthodox and Catholics.
     
    What to see in the vicinity?
     
    Moving further, to the east of Sutomore, you will pass a small village Brca. After it to the right, there is forest park area of Cape Ratac. The ruins of the Monastery of the Virgin Ratacanskaja, founded in the 9th c. are of some interest. Once it stood right on the shoreline and belonged to the Benedictine Brotherhood, which owned the surrounding lands and traded with olive oil. But in 1571 the monastery was devastated by the Ottoman Empire, and during the Second World War it was finally destroyed by the Italian troops. On the territory of the monastery there are preserved ruins of the Church of St. Mary, built in the XII-XII centuries. The icon of the Virgin was in it, which attracted numerous pilgrims. In addition, on the territory of the monastery were hospitals, where monks and local residents were treated.

    Along the Cape Ratac several picturesque beaches stretches, including officially one nudist. A little further from the cape is not very popular with tourist circles, which means that not overcrowded beach "Beogradska plaza" 100 meters long. The picturesque landscape is complemented by giant boulders in crystal clear water.

    To see Sutomore as in the palm of your hand, you can climb the fortress of Hai-Nehai. It is on the way to the village Canj. More than five centuries ago it was founded by the Venetians, but in 100 years the Turks conquered it. They then gav it the name. Once the fortress could accommodate up to 900 people. Despite the long years of Muslim domination, the foundation and part of the walls of St. Dimitry's church of XIII century with two altars have been preserved on the territory of the fortress. From the road the fortress seems an impregnable fortification, but having come closer, you will see the paths leading upward.
    Крепость Хай-Нехай
     
    How to get to the city?
     
    Through the city the railway goes that connects the capital of Serbia - Belgrade and Bar. In addition, the people of Podgorica love to spend their weekends here - thanks to the proximity of the resort to the capital. Only half an hour by train or car separates them from each other. Of course, there is a bus service in the city, and those who prefer to travel with comfort, will be able to take cars for rent.
    Sutomore hotels are also focused on travelers who are inclined to choose a budget vacation. The level of hotels and villas corresponds to approximately 3 * according to the international classification. This does not mean that there is no comfortable housing in Sutomore. It just lacks a touch of luxury, as it often happens in beach hotels of other countries.

    Directly on the beach in Sutomore there are more than 50 cafes and restaurants. Railway, which goes through the city, links the cities of Belgrade and Bar. The main part of the resort area in the summer (approximately from 1 June to 15 September) is intended only for pedestrians.

    The coastline of Sutomore and its outskirts abounds with quiet lagoons and bays, forests and picturesque rocks - these places are suitable for walking the best.

    The Old town of Ulcinj is situated in the southern part of the Montenegrin coast and occupies a rather large area. It is well preserved and does not look like other ancient settlements of Montenegro: there is a peculiar atmosphere of the Middle Ages and surprisingly few people. You can get to the fortress through the gates located on the beach. To do this, you need to go along the embankment to the walls of the fortress and climb a small staircase.

    The fortress of Ulcinj is on a hill, therefore from here the magnificent panorama of a seaside part of a city burst upon the eye. The thickness of the fortress walls reaches 20 m, and in some places they are built by cyclopean masonry from large stones without gaps and fastening mortar. The fortress of Ulcinj has a rich history, and the proven facts are intertwined with fiction. For example, they say that at the end of the XVI century, after being captured by pirates for five years, famous Miguel de Cérantes lived here. Adherents of this theory connect the name of the heroine of his novel "Don Quixote" of Dulcinea del Toboso with the Venetian name of the city – Dulcigno. However, from the biography of the writer it is known that, having been taken into prison, he lived in Algeria.
    Old town of Ulcinj in Montenegro
    Walking along narrow streets to the northern part of the fortress, you will see the unique St. Mary's mosque-church, built in 1511. Initially it was a Catholic church. The oldest parts of this building are a door jamb and fragments of the western wall. From the Christian period, the Gothic rosette window above the main entrance and the edging of the archway have also been preserved. In some places under the limy coating of the facade you can see the remains of fresco painting of the 16th century. In 1693, the church was rebuilt into a mosque, one of the exits were immured, four windows were cut in the facade and a minaret was built.

    Today there is the Museum of Local Lore. Among its exhibits there is an antique pedestal for sculpture with a carved dedication of the ancient Greek goddess of hunting Artemis V-IV BC. e., medallion depicting Artemis in the helmet, tools of the Bronze Age era, fragments of the church of the IX century and other artifacts. In front of the mosque church there is the Slave Square. On it in the XVII-XVIII centuries there was the largest market of the slave trade - pirates from Malta, Algeria and Tunisia sold here "live goods." 

    At the highest point, next to the museum, is the Citadel, which was an important defensive structure, as well as the Balsic Tower. The tower was built in the first half of the XV century and for a long time was the tallest building in Ulcinj. Its name was received on behalf of the Serbian dynasty Balsice - here was their summer residence.

    In the next two-story building, restored in the XX century there is the Ethnographic Museum. In its exposition there are objects of everyday life of almost all peoples who inhabited the surroundings of modern Ulcinj at different times: Illyrians, Greeks, Romans, Albanians and Montenegrins. At the entrance there is a fountain with drinking water, built by the Turks in 1779 and it’s still functioning.

    The era of the Venetian Republic in Ulcinj is represented by only two palaces - the Chamber of Venice, built in the XV century as the residence of the governor, and the Balsic Yards of the XIV century. Now they are both converted into hotels, but the appearance has almost remained unchanged.

    In the evening the fortress is highlighted, and numerous cozy restaurants and cafes are waiting for their guests.
     
    What to see in the vicinity of the city?
     
    To the west of the Old Town is the Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas, built in 1890 on the site of a medieval monastery. This is a very quiet place, from where you can see a beautiful view of the fortress walls. Near the church there is a picturesque grove of mighty olives and an old cemetery.

    It is also recommended to explore the amazing shore of Ulcinj, riddled with small picturesque bays. This amazingly beautiful place is located to the east of the Small Beach, near the Hotel Albatros. You can get here by the road leading to the hotel, but not reaching it.

    From the "Albatross" along the coast through the forest there is a path that ends at the canal. Behind it the Great Beach begins - the main attraction of the Ulcin Riviera. And although to go 2 km to it, you will not regret, because along the way you can enjoy beautiful scenery and swim in the place you like.
    The Great Beach in Ulcinj, Montenegro
    Lifehack: next to the beach hotel "Albatross" is the Women's Beach. It is believed that the local hydrogen sulphide source, volcanic sand and pine forest air create a special microclimate that has a beneficial effect on the reproductive system of women.
     
    Hotels in Ulcinj
     
    Hotels in Ulcinj are ready to offer their guests accommodation of different levels. Quite large is the choice of modest hotels, designed for unassuming travelers. But, regardless of the cost of living, hospitality and joy are waiting for the guests of all hotels. In the Old Town, too, there is where to live.

    The doors of many cafes, restaurants and bars are open almost around the clock: they all work "to the last client". The menu is usually based on local products, very fresh and tasty. As in other seaside towns, there are many restaurants offering a wide variety of seafood dishes.

    Picturesque, like almost all the coastal cities of Montenegro, Ulcinj has its own special face, its own special color. And the night illumination of streets in Ulcinj is considered the most bright and beautiful on all the coast.

    One may endlessly enjoy the beauty of the National Park with a mysterious name "Durmitor"! Here one wishes to breathe in continually the freshness of the North, enjoy panoramic views of the Durmitor authentic villages, picturesque mountain pastures and glacial lakes. And here there is an irresistible urge to conquer the mountain tops.

    Bobotov Kuk is one of these peaks of the mountain massif Durmitor, which is located in the heart of the Durmitor National Park in Montenegro. This peak has a strange, but euphonic name and, as they say, is the highest mountain peak in the Republic of Montenegro.

    However, according to a recent aerial photography, in Montenegro there are higher mountains - in the mountain range Prokletije on the border with Albania. This fact is not particularly advertised as geographically Bobotov Kuk is located in the center of Durmitor in Montenegro, and is much better suited for the role of a tourist Mecca. Why Prokletije? First of all, this massif belongs not only to Montenegro, but also to Serbia (Kosovo), Macedonia and Albania (where are the highest peaks of the massif). It is also important that, historically, the Montenegrin population in the area is represented in the minority. The combination of these factors led to the fact that tourists in this region are not seen.

    The height of the peak is 2523 meters above sea level and is one of the 48 peaks with heights of more than 2,000 meters, located in the mountain massif Durmitor. In clear weather, you can see the mountain Lovcen from the top, located in the eponymous national park almost at the other end of the country on the Adriatic coast, as well as mountains Kopaonik and Tara in Serbia. All Dinaric Alps, including Bobotov Kuk, extends 650 km from north-west to south-east across the Balkan Peninsula. The western wall of the top of Bobotov Kuk is the coolest and together with neighboring peaks forms a powerful natural amphitheater. To the west of the wall lies Shkrka valley and lake Veliko Shkrchko (Veliko Škrčko jezero) and Little Shkrchko (Malo Škrčko jezero). The southern and eastern walls go to the rocky valleys Dinaric. Eastern and northern wall along form the top of the compact pyramid, which is partially covered with snow all year round.

    Up to the top of Mount Bobotov Kuk four basic and affordable tourist trekking routes are laid and before to conquer the peak, read information about them carefully, and choose for themselves the most appropriate.

    Lifehack: all paths are carefully marked with red rings with white core - the main thing is to look around carefully. All difficult areas are equipped with safety rope. And the most important, be vigilant and watch you step, not to stumble and fly down on the running rocks. 
    all paths are carefully marked with red rings with white core - the main thing is to look around carefully
    The most popular of these routes starts from Black Lake near the town of Zabljak and takes approximately 5-6 hours one way (depending on your physical condition and how often you stop to take pictures). In addition, from the Black Lake, there is a trail to the most unique attractions in the region - the mysterious icy cave. Its uniqueness lies in the unusual composition of stalactites and stalagmites - they consist entirely of pure ice. Links to the track and hiking uphill.

    The second route is the easiest and shortest one - only 3.5 hours one way with a height difference between the peak and pass just 616 meters! It begins from the pass Sedlo pass - the highest "automobile" pass in Montenegro, located at an altitude of 1907 m, we will tell about it later.

    It is also possible to get to the top from the village Dobri Do and from Shkrka Valley (Škrka). Seasoned travelers are advised to combine a combined route - at 5 am to leave the car in the parking lot near the Black Lake, then take a taxi to get to the Sedlo pass (it costs about 20-25 euros) and start the ascent from this point, and after a visit of the top, go down to Zabljak. This route takes about 9 hours.

    Thus, mountain hiking trail on Bobotov Kuk from the pass Sedlo (1907 m) starts from the car park at the top of the pass and payment of 3 euros for entrance to the Durmitor National Park.
    Горный пешеходный маршрут на Боботов Кук в Черногории начинается с перевала Sedlo.
    On the way to the top you can admire the rugged mountains with stripes peaks Šareni Pasovi (2248 m) and Štit (2236 m). Then, after passing the pass Uvita Greda (2199 m), surpassing the fascinating rocky peaks demonic rock amphitheater Zupci (2309 m), the road leads out to a mountain lake Zeleni Vir (2028 meters), or more precisely to the "puddle" that is left of it... In the summer the lake of glacial origin is dry - and from 80-meter reservoir supplied by the mountain springs, lefe only a small green lens. Such glacial lakes are called "mountain eyes", because the water is extremely clean and quiet. Water from the lake is suitable for replenishment of stocks of liquid before further ascent.

    From Lake Zeleni Vir already begins a steep climb to the pass Velika Privija (2351 m), over which, like a giant boulder, Bobotov Kuk rises. This is an intersection of two routes: from Sedlo Pass and from the Black Lake, which is located near Zabljak. Further along the road, herds of sheep and Katun - houses of shepherds periodically come across, where you can buy homemade cheese and milk. 
    Катуны - домики пастухов, в которых можно купить домашний сыр и молоко.
     "All along the way, "Pyramid" of stones - the so-called rooks are preriodically met.
    Historically, they were built to guide climbers on the route, but today most of the tourists in a way mark its presence on the mountain. Now someone is building their pyramids, and someone came by and simply puts a stone in the already built one".

    From the pass, many think that the peak of the mountain is already reached, but it is not so. Up to this point all the obstacles on the route may seem as a cakewalk, as only now a real mountain ascent begins - sometimes even have to climb the vertical sections with rope cables, and sometimes walk along the steep cliffs... And constantly slipping stones from under the feet will keep you in suspense. Do not do any awkward movements here – once fallen down, you can get serious injuries. Concluding segments of ascent will tickle your nerves and make to feel like a real climber – you have to creep up even on your hands. It’s better not to look down... But all this grows dim and fear evaporates once you get to the top.

    And here it is - the highest point of Montenegro - Bobotov Kuk! Feelings are incredible, views are amazing and stunning! According to the guides, under the good weather, the entire Montenegro is seen from Bobotov Kuk. Of course, such towns as Tivat, Budva and Kotor are not seen, but you can watch the high mountains of the National Park Lovcen, Prokletije mountain, fantastic valleys, dense forests and canyons of unimaginable beauty! But not everyone is destined to catch such weather...

    Lifehack: on top there is a metal box and every "conqueror of this peak" may leave a mark in the journal of ascents about one’s small feat.
    На вершине Боботов Кук установлен железный ящик и каждый "покоритель этой вершины" может оставить в журнале восхождений отметку о своем маленьком подвиге.
    The way back is not easier than ascenting and eventually the entire walk back and forth takes from three to seven hours depending on the selected route, preparation and speed.

    Walking through the narrow, winding paths surrounded by fantastic landscapes, is an unprecedented delight for every traveler. And while many routes are pretty durable, but still they are passed, as a rule, in one shot. Landscapes changes around so rapidly, that travelers, enjoying the great views, breathing in pure mountain air and photographing the vast mountain landscapes and majestic mountains, without noticing the flow of time. Each new stone field, each pass brings a whole new landscape, flora and ancient forests will amaze you with its diversity. In addition, there are more than a thousand species of plants, some of which came down to us from prehistoric times.

    Lifehack: to make the ascent to Bobotov Kuk is best between June and October. In other months the trip will be complicated by snow and biting cold. If you decide to go to the top on snow, and how hot you are, never unbare any part of the body in the snowy mountains, and always bring your sunscreen creams! Bright sunlight reflected from the snow, which multiplies the effect of rays and thus speed up the burning process.

    The history of climbing on Bobotov Kuk.

    The first ascent to the peak was committed in 1883, by an Austrian cartographer Oscar Baumann. The first winter ascent was officially registered in 1931. In 1933, a group of Slovenian climbers made the ascent by the southern wall. Since then, the mountain has been thoroughly explored by climbers and tourists. However, for the first group Bobotov Kuk is out of interest - the complexity of the route for athletes is, frankly speaking, childish. But for the ordinary tourist - it's a great opportunity to enjoy the pristine nature of the Dinaric Alps.

    In conclusion, we note that under favorable weather conditions, rising to the peak Bobotov Kuk will be mastered by everyone - on the trail in addition to experienced hikers there are also teenagers, and senior citizens occur. As for equipment, a membrane jacket and pants, thermal underwear, gloves, trekking boots or good reliable and tight sports shoes, sticks, sunglasses, sunscreen, a knife, a flashlight, a lighter (if it comes to make a fire) are nececcary. With such a set of equipment, you will feel warm and comfortable regardless of the weather. And most important, take a supply of water (at least 1.5 liters per person) and provisions.

    Of course, for experienced climbers, this route may seem too simple, but novice hikers in the mountains will be delighted.

    Climb to the top of Mount Bobotov Kuk is a fascinating mountain adventure in the heart of Montenegro, which may be fulfilled by many travelers.

    Convent Zdrebaonik located near the town of Danilovgrad, 17 km from the Ostrog monastery. The name of the monastery comes from the word "zdravie" that in the Slavic language means "Church estate, property." There are several versions of who founded the monastery - Prince Vukan of Zeta, son of Prince Stefan, king Milutin. But in any case, all converge in the opinion that the founder was someone from the representatives of the dynasty nemanjic, and that the Foundation of the monastery should be attributed to the 13th-14th centuries. In those days the monastery was metham (slave) of the monastery Moraca.

    The main temple, consecrated in honor of St. Michael the Archangel, erected in 1818 on the foundations of an ancient temple from the times of the nemanjic. The monastery complex consists of a Church, a large hospice house and several smaller buildings that were used as classrooms. The Church of St. Archangel Michael built in typical Montenegrin style churches - hewn sturdy grey stone. The Church altar is decorated with the Holy see, in the middle is the main icon created by the monks of Svyatogorsk. In 1819 the monastery was built two-storey Konak (hospice). Now live in it about ten nuns and the prioress. In the monastery icon workshop.

    In 1856, the monastery keeps relics of Saint Arsenios of Simca. He was the second Archbishop and successor of Saint Sava - the founder of the Serbian Autocephalous Orthodox Church. The relics of this Saint many miracles and healings. Between 1884 and 1914, these relics were stored elsewhere in the monastery Kosijerevo, but then returned to Zdrebaonik. In addition to the relics of Saint Arsenios here lie the relics of the Holy Martyr Fevronia.

    The Church of St. Michael the Archangel is a classic for Montenegrin temples structure with straight flat walls and semi-circular altar jog. Inside the temple there is a balcony for the choir, an altar with icons of Arsenius, and St. Sava, as well as a case, with the imperishable relics. In addition to the Church in the monastery complex included a large hospice, built in 1819, as well as a number of new buildings — a refectory, a library and an icon workshop. Since 1994, the monastery Zdrebaonik is a female Orthodox monastery belonging to the Montenegrin-coastal Metropolitan of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

    Fortress Besac is one of the oldest military fortification preserved at the territory of the modern Montenegro. It was built during the times of the Ottoman Empire at the second half of XX century. However some towers behind the fortress wall trace history to medieval Zeta State. In ancient times the fortress bordered Slavic and Turkish territory. That's why today it presents a significant historical value not only for Montenegro, but also for the whole Balkan peninsular.
    Today, the fortress is half destroyed, although it is planned to build tourist military memorial complex. It can be approached by gravel-road from auto road Podgorica-Bar.

    The Island of St. Marco had a name of St. Gabriel and there was a church with the same name there since the very old times. According to the legend, since the early times this island was known by its charming nature and fragrant pine trees growing on the coast of the Adriatic. Due to the belief, the Greek gods sent there their best soldiers to recover after fights, cured their wounds and recovered emotionally. Greek soldiers rested on the island, enjoyed long walks, shared with each other their military exploits and heroism and glory...When there were not so many wars, the soldiers enjoyed staying in the island and decided to stay to live there. They felt blame for the all bad that they had done in wars, they prayed the Goods to save the peace, and by the way they wanted the island where they lived to be always the same. In return they promised not to start wars, but only to protect from the enemy if they would be attacked and as the sign of their will they planted olive tree, from which later the whole olive grove grew. But a spirit of war has awoken in the hearts of the soldiers again after some time, and they forgot their promise and again set for the wars. It made gods furious and they sent an awful storm to the island and sunk all the ships and killed all the soldiers. The island became empty, only olive trees indicate those times and that terrible event. In honor of the dead Greek veterans, residents of Tivat decided to give the island the name Stradioti that means «warriors» in Greek. Up to these days, people sometimes use this name for the island of St. Mark's Square.

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 ...
