    Ulcinj is the southernmost city on the coast of Montenegro, in fact the last major city of Montenegro before bordering Albania. This city is the main one in the Ulcinska Riviera. The majority of the population of Ulcinj is made up of ethnic Albanians, almost 70% of the total population. Local residents mostly speak Albanian, and it becomes obvious already at the entrance to the city. All road signs and signs are duplicated from Montenegrin to Albanian. In summer this part of the coast is especially popular with the Albanian population from Kosovo. Ulcinj, perhaps the most colorful city among all Montenegrin resorts, in the atmosphere of this city there is something eastern.
     

    History of the city.


    The history of the city has more than a dozen centuries and explains many features and even strangeness of Ulcinj. For example, why are the minarets quietly neighbors with a typical European fortress. More than 2,500 years ago, the first Illyrian settlements appeared in this region, that is, in the Bronze Age, people already lived here. This is indirectly confirmed by archaeological finds near the village of Zogaj. Old Ulcinj was founded in V BC by Greek colonists from Kohida and called it Kohinium. Already in 163 BC the city was captured by the Roman Empire - it received a new name of Olcinium and even a certain independence. After the fall of Rome, the city, which by that time was the capital of pirates and slavers on the Adriatic, became part of the Byzantine Empire.

    In 1183, the city was conquered by Stefan Neman, under which it became one of the prosperous shopping centers of the Adriatic coast. And already in 1356 Ulcinj together with other lands of the Zeta goes under the control of the Balsic dynasty.

    However, the unique geographical position, features of the terrain and climate made it a desired prey for the conquerors, so the walls of the city were destroyed during the next attacks, and were strengthened by new owners. In 1423, Ulcin was captured the soldiers of the Venetian Republic, renamed it into Dulcinjo and transferred to Venetian Albania. During the Ottoman wars, Christians took refuge in the city.
    In 1571, nevertheless, the Turks conquered Ulcinj and turned it into a powerful bastion to fight against Venice. This era of government lasted until the end of the XIX century, until, finally, in 1880, the city became a part of Montenegro.
     

    Sights.


    Take a walk from the main street of the city - Marshal Tito Boulevard to Hafiz Ali Ulcinaku Street, which will lead you to the sea through the historical center. The architecture of this street has strong oriental motifs. It is especially beautiful in the evening. Here there is a unique atmosphere, for example, the minaret of the main mosque Namazdiakh, built in 1828, and the clock tower erected in 1754.

    After walking about 500 m, you will get to the fork. Go along the street to the left and you will go to the city beach. The Small beach offers an amazing view of the Old Town. The old town of Ulcinj (Stari Grad Uljcinj), like many others, suffered greatly during the last major earthquake in 1979, but most of it has already been restored. In the Old Town the city museum of Ulcinj is located. And from the observation deck you can make stunning photos of the city views, the sandy beach, houses and mosques towering above them.
    Ulcinj
    Lifehack: the cheapest fruits and vegetables are sold on the market in Ulcinj, and when the season of watermelons and melons begins, cheaper price you won’t find anywhere else in Montenegro.
     

    Beaches.


    The swimming season on the beaches of Ulcinj lasts longer than in the rest of Montenegro - usually from the end of April to early November. And most importantly, this area is famous for its endless sandy beaches:

    • Mala plaza - a sandy beach right by the walls of the Old Town;
    • Velika plaza - a sandy beach with black sand, with a length of 13 km, and the width of the coastline is up to 60 meters. To imagine that there is not enough space for someone is extremely difficult.
    • Ada Bojana is a nudist beach known all over the world, located on the "island", formed by the two hands of the delta of the Ada Bojana River, which flows from Skadar Lake. Thus, this beach is bathed from both sides by a river, and from the third one by Adriatic Sea. On the beach there is a large number of fish restaurants, which treat freshly caught fish from the river Ada Bojana.
    • Women's Beach (Zenska plaža) - the second largest nudist beach, about which there are legends that here it is possible to recover from infertility and improve female health.

    Lifehack: in the afternoon on Velika plaža and Ada Bojana beaches a strong wind rises, so these beaches are ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing lovers.
     

    What to see in the vicinity of the city?


    You can start studying the Riviera from the small resort village of Dobra Voda. It is surrounded by oak and olive groves and is known for its healing air.
    Добра Вода
    Not far from the city there is the village Kruce, which is famous for the beach "Valdanos" and the bay, which crashed deep into the land. One of the boundaries of the beach is a sheer rock of unusual white color. Next to the olive grove there is a huge auto camping.

    On a small island near the Kruce there are the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Olcinium. On the north side of the island, the parts of the fortress walls are preserved, and behind them there are the remains of small buildings and the church of the 12th-13th centuries. Another famous area is the lighthouse on Cape Mendra, built in the 13th century. And functioning until now. Its keeper conducts free and interesting excursions to the lighthouse.

    If botany attracts you more than history, take a stroll through the olive forest, where there are about 74,000 trees. It stretches for 5 km from the beach "Valdanos" to the city itself. Another miracle of nature located near Ulcinj - a glacial lake. The reservoir lies between the Rumija mountain and the Ada Boyana river and attracts many eco-tourism enthusiasts. This is not surprising, because in this place you can feel a complete union with nature, enjoy the silence and watch the birds, which are more than 240 species on the lake. The area of the water mirror is more than 360 hectares.

    On the shore of the lake, near the village of Sas, there are the ruins of the medieval town Svac. The city was founded by the Byzantine emperor Justinian, at the beginning of the 6th century, and around 1183 was conquered by Stephen Nemanj. Svac was an independent city and even minted its own coin. It is true that in 1241 the city was razed to the ground by the Mongols, but by the efforts of Helena of Anjou it was restored by the end of the century. However, in 1575 the history of the city ended - there were only ruins left. In the northern part of Svac, near the gate, there is the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, built in Romanesque style in 1300. Previously, this place was the older cathedral, probably destroyed by the Mongols in the middle of the VIII century. This is evidenced by the remains of an ancient masonry near its western wall. Archaeological excavations in the vicinity of Svac is going to be continued.

    The tourist town of Kotor Bay in the northern part of Montenegro, which is definitely worth a visit - Herceg Novi, is located on a narrow strip of coast in the valley of the mountain Orjien. It is the administrative center of the homonymous municipality with a population of about 13,000 inhabitants.
     

    History of the city.


    Archaeological finds indicate that the first Illyrian settlements on the site of the modern Herceg Novi appeared even in the times of Antiquity. The city itself was founded in 1382 by the Bosnian king Tvrtko I as a defensive structure, and was called Sveti Stefan, now this name bears another city in Montenegro. For medieval Bosnia, this fortress was of great strategic importance and was the most important outlet to the sea. After the death of the king, the power passed to Prince Sandal Hhranic from the Kosac dynasty. During his reign, the city experienced a strong economic recovery and functioned as a major center of salt trade. At the time of the reign of Stefan Vukcic, the city became known as Herceg Novi. In 1466, the Venetian Republic made an offer to the Duke of Vukcić to exchange Herceg Novi to the city of Risan on the island of Brač and the palace in Split, but the duke refused.

    The special position of Herceg Novi fueled interest in it both in the Republic of Venice and in the Ottoman Empire. In 1482 the Turks still managed to conquer the city, and it became the center of piracy and slave trade. The Ottoman period lasted just a bit more than 200 years.

    In 1687, after a 30-day siege, the Turks were forced to surrender the city to the Venetian Republic, and the city became part of the Venetian Republic as part of the province of Albania Veneta. Venetian domination continued until 1797, as in the entire Boka Bay of Kotor. Surprisingly, in 1806-1807 Herceg Novi was under Russian patronage. Until 1918, the government of the city passed from France to Austria. During the Napoleonic wars, the power of the city passed to the France, and then to the Austrians owned it until 1918, then the city became part of Yugoslavia until its disintegration.
     

    Attractions of Herceg Novi.


    At the very entrance to the city in the park "Savinskaja dubrava" surrounded by oaks, cypresses, chestnuts and pines there is a monument of early Balkan Christianity - the Orthodox monastery Savina, one of the oldest in Montenegro.
    Monastery Savina
    The monastery of Savina (Manastir Savina) is a male Orthodox monastery, which is located in the same area of Savino, directly adjacent to the Old City of Herceg Novi. The monastery was founded by monks who left Trebinje (Bosnia and Herzegovina). The monastery is a complex of buildings - the Great Assumption Church, the Church of St. Sava, the Small Assumption Church. In the Great Assumption Church there is an icon of the Mother of God of Savin. This church is also considered the best example of the architectural style of baroque on the whole Adriatic coast. Russian, Greek and Italian antique icons, censers, crosses, jewelry and letters are kept in the monastery. In the vestry there are unique relics: a 13th-century crystal cross of St. Sava, an icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker of the 18th century. The shroud of 1642, the silver vessel for chrismation of 1648, and much more.

Among the most valuable exhibits are the Gospel of 1375, the Octoechos (5 voices) of 1375 and the Savinsky tavern of the 16th century. It also contains the primer published in Russia in 1692, according to which the future poet and ruler of Montenegro, Petar II Petrovic Njegos, learned to read and write.

    In the southern part of the city, near the coastline, there is the Citadel, built by the Venetians for protection from the sea, and then remade by the Turks and Austrians. In 1979, it was almost destroyed by an earthquake, and today you can only see the remains of the fallen walls in the sea.

    Not far from the Citadel, above the mountain, going along the sea, on the rock is the Sea Fortress (Forte Mare). Since its erection by the Bosnian King Tvrtko I in 1382 the construction of the city began. This fortress was then the main observation post. Being on a steep rock, it grows as if straight out of the water. This sea fort is now used for entertainment, here the cinema opens in summer, and sometimes this fortress functions like a night club.

     Каждый курортный город, поселок или район в Черногории на протяжении всего года, в основном, живет за счет туристов. Местечко Бечичи (район Будвы) также не является исключением из правил. Здесь множество гостиниц, всевозможных кафе, ресторанчиков и магазинов. Но, пожалуй, не стоит забывать о том, что предки местных жителей обитали тут задолго до того, как Бечичи превратился в популярный курорт. А это значит, что тут расположено огромное количество исторических и культурных памятников, достопримечательностей, а также духовных мест. Одним из таких мест является Православная Церковь Святого Апостола Фомы или, как ее называют жители Черногории, Церковь Святого Томе (Crkva Svetog Tome).
    Православная Церковь Святого Апостола Фомы в Черногории. Церковь Святого Томе (Crkva Svetog Tome).
     Церковь Святого Апостола Тома находится недалеко от курортного города Будвы в районе поселка Бечичи. Храм расположен на вершине небольшого холма, в тихом и живописном месте меж вековыми соснами и густыми кипарисами, возвышаясь над побережьем Адриатического моря и пляжем Бечичи. Приходской храм Св. Томе относится к Сербской Православной епархии, о чём красноречиво свидетельствует расположенный возле входа большой триколор с золотым крестом.

     Согласно многим источникам, церквушка была построена в XIV веке в типичном для близлежащих районов архитектурном стиле и посвящалась Апостолу Святому Фоме. К сожалению, оригинальный, старинный храм был разрушен в начале прошлого века. Тот храм, который мы видим сейчас, возвели из белого тесаного камня на фундаменте древней церкви в 1910 году. В то время он носил имя Стефана Штиляновича, последнего Паштровского князя, сербского деспота и святого, который родился в непосредственной близости от этой церкви. На данный момент церковь является единственной местной достопримечательностью, имеющей такой возраст.

    Интересный факт: Каждый год 17 октября в день святого Стефана Штиляновича здесь собираются верующие, как и 19 октября, в день Святого Тома.

     На территории храма есть небольшая смотровая площадка, подворье с церковной и сувенирной лавкой и множество цветов, в основном розы. Возле здания церкви находится освященный источник с целебной ключевой водой.
     В церкви Св. Фомы хранится часть мощей святого Стефана Штиляновича, которые в 2007 году были перенесены из Белграда.

     Пройти к церкви Святого Апостола Тома можно как со стороны пляжной зоны Бечичи, так и со стороны автомобильной трассы Ядранский путь (Е-65) по направлению из Будвы на остров Свети Стефан. Храм расположен справа от шоссе, сразу после известного отеля Splendid и хорошо виден с дороги.
     С пляжа Бечичи к храму ведет каменная лестница. Единственное, необходимо подобающе одеться, поскольку заходить в святыню в плавках и купальниках строго запрещено. Об этом вам еще раз напомнит табличка с предупреждением, которая висит на воротах перед входом в храм. Возле здания церкви находится освященный источник с целебной ключевой водой. Церковь действует и сегодня.

     Церковь Святого Апостола Фомы (Тома) открыта ежедневно с 9.00 до 22.00.
    По воскресеньям и в праздничные дни в 9 утра в храме проводится Литургия.
    Ежедневно в 20.30 начинается вечернее богослужение.

     Церковь Святого Тома находится в потрясающем месте вдали от суеты и шума города. Ее довольно часто посещают люди, предпочитающих спокойный и тихий отдых, ведь на территории церкви можно не только отдохнуть, побыть наедине с собой и собраться с мыслями, но еще и помолиться.

    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.

    Рекомендуем запланировать поездку ближе к закату для того чтобы увидеть, как оранжевое солнце падает за далёкий мыс на западе, а на востоке золотятся и розовеют скалы Ловчена и Пестинграда.

    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.
    Крепость Врмац на горе Врмац в Черногории
    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!

    In Boka-Kotor bay, near a cultural sightseeing Perast town, there is the only of its kind of the Eastern Adriatica artificial island Gospa od Škrpjela with the Church of XVIII century erected on a small reef. The name of the island translated from Serbian as "Our Lady of the Rocks" and reflects its history. In 1452 two brothers, who were local seamen from Perast found an icon of the Holy Mother on the reef. Presumably the icon appeared there after shipwreck, but after the icon created a miracle it became insignificant. After the icon was found, one of the brothers recovered from illness he had been suffering for a long time. Since local people have known about miracle healing, they started respect and worship the icon.

    Plateau with area 3030 m2 and the Church of Our Lady of the Rocks 11m high had been constructed for more than 200 years. It started with sinking old and seized ships, then pirate ones. Than the law was taken, according to which every ship passing by should drop a stone to the bottom.

    Since then annual festival is held, during which all men should reach the island on brightly decorated boats and deliver stones there. This festival is called "Fašinada" and it has practical, rather than entertainment, purpose. It is held to avoid the damage of the island. Any volunteer can participate. By the way, the closing part of the fest is sailing regatta. The Church was finally built in 1630. It is considered the Church helps the sailors during dangerous voyages. Unfortunately, after a strong earthquake happend in 1667, the Church was reconstructed and in 1722 it was finally completed in Byzantine style. Tripo Kokolja took part in the interior design. The most famous his work is 10 meters fresco "Mary’s Death".

    There are many works of art brought by sailors. Besides a famous icon of Our Lady, there are more than 2500 thousand of plates made of gold and silver. They contain dates of sailors' departure and arrival. Some plates contain just one date, it means that some sailors never came back. So a woman has been waiting for his husband-sailor the whole life. At the same time she was embroidering an icon out of her hair, so even grey hair was visible there. Her husband has never returned. Now the icon is kept in the Church on the island. It considered that the icon brings luck to the married couples, therefore wedding ceremonies are held in this church. Also many tourists and pilgrims all over the world come to the church.

    There are more than 14 offshore islands in Montenegro, and, in addition, small islands on Skadar Lake and in the Bay of Kotor. Each of these islands is beautiful and does not look like the others - and here are rocky islands and the islands with golden beaches, the island with dense vegetation and ancient fortresses.

    Katic and Holy Sunday Islands (Montenegrin - Svete Nedelje) are amazing, compact and rocky islands in the bay of Petrovac, which are located very close to each other. They are located near the tourist town of Petrovac, opposite the city beach - distance from the coastline is only one kilometer. Every tourist, visiting the town of Petrovac, has a great opportunity to enjoy the picturesque landscape, boundless expanse of the Adriatic Sea and given islands.

    Katic and Holy Sunday Islands in Petrovac are almost perpendicular to the coastline, and if you look at them from the city beach, then one island covers another one. But if you go to the edge of the town of Petrovac, to one of the distant beaches, the islands of Holy Sunday and Katic will appear before you in all their glory.

    How to get to the island?

    To reach the islands one can only by water. At the city beach, or on the pier you can rent a boat, a cutter, a kayak or catamaran and reach the islands on your own or with the help of a guide. But some experienced swimmers and daredevils get to the island by swimming (remember that there is 1 km from the coast to the islands).
     During the trip, you can forget about the everyday hustle and leisure, enjoy the tranquility, great views of beautiful nature, clean air and wonderful atmosphere.

    Why are the islands so attractive?

    Holy Sunday Island is one of the most interesting islands in the world, which is certainly remembered by everyone who ever saw him alive. Residents of the town of Petrovac tell an interesting legend about the island of Holy Sunday and the church of the same name on it.

    Long ago, there was a strong storm in the that destroyed a ship and crew. Only a few sailors miraculously survived and were able to find refuge on the small stone island. As a sign of gratitude to the Lord for their salvation in the storm, they built a small church (chapel) on this place. Shipwreck happened on Sunday (in Montenegrin word sounds like "nedelja"), respectively, and the church was called Svete Nedelje (Holy Sunday). At present, the locals believe that the church and the island of Holy Week protect each sailor in these places.

     An earthquake in the second half of the XX century, destroyed many architectural sights not only in Petrovac, but around the whole Montenegro, and it didn’t spare the little church either, and now it is dilapidated. But despite this, in chapel the bells still can be rung, and the church is illuminated at night and looks simply amazing.

    Katic Island is a small, rocky and uninhabited areas of land. Despite this, a few pines still managed to adapt to the difficult conditions of existence on Katic. There is also a beacon pointing the way to mariners.

    Take a chance to walk on the islands of Katic and Holy Sunday, enjoying beautiful scenery, tranquility and time to spend alone with the closest people, because such a possibility happens quite rarely nowadays. Get convinced, that all this splendor and diversity will charge you only with positive emotions and give a true delight and admiration of what you see.

    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.

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 ...
