  • Guide around Montenegro
    Once we find ourselves in any Montenegrin town for the first time, we start walking around its old part, because all history and the most interesting are here. Today we have a walk around Budva.Belfry of the St. Ivan's church is the highest building in Old Budva and is seen from a distance. Walking along the quay toward the port, you will run into a defensive wall.  Today, it is difficult to believe that in the beginning of 20th century, the whole Budva was located behind this wall. Entering inside through the one out of five gates, you will find yourself in a tangle of narrow streets. Practically all buildings are inhabited. There are private apartments and small hotels. Cafes, shops and bakers are on the first floor always. In 1979 the town had suffered seriously from earthquake. But it was reconstructed completely as it was built by the Venetians. Now it is a typical example of Mediterranean Venetian architecture.There are some nice museums in Old Budva. For example, at the Archaeological museum, there is an amazing detailed collection of items of various epochs, which were found during local excavation. Everything is there, ancient amphoras barnacle-encrusted, arming, golden jewels and household items. The most impressive is the collection of vessels made from the very finest colored glass of the 1-3 centuries. We never did find out, how in heaven's name this beauty came down to us. Next to the entrance to the Archaeological museum, there is a door leading to a small patio with junk market working every day. Here, amidst real Chinese junk, one can find real heavy duty: ancient cameo and amber brooch, carved jewel-case, manual coffee-grinder and ceramic figures. When reaching the citadel, the heaviest part of the wall, it is a must go inside. It is allowed for a small fee.  Come over to a tiny Maritime museum (there is just one room with models of the legendary ships) and a library (a spacious room with brick walls, forged chandelier and a very strange collection of books: from old German index medicus to Lenin's collection of letters). Here, on the territory of the citadel one can get to City wall by a narrow steep staircase. The view from here is panoramic of the sea and Budva.There are some churches in Old Budva: St. Ivan's Catholic temple dated 7th century (the very same with a tall active belfry), St. Maria's CatholicChurch dated 840 year (now no ministers here), active Orthodox Church of Holy Trinity dated 19th century.In summer, the performances are held within the framework of the festival "Grad Teatar" on the square next to the Holy Trinity Church. As a rule, during season many cultural events are held in Old Budva: festivals, exhibitions, concerts.Hundreds of writers and poets are gathering  together on the main square of Old town and arrange literary fete. This place is entitled precisely - Poet's square. Clumsy stone blocks are installed here, which are actually a chair and a table for litterateurs making speech. By summer evenings, Old Budva becomes the center of life: bars and restaurants, located against the defensive wall, get filled with thousands of people various nationalities and age. But on the tick of 01:00a.m., city gets off to sleep: a loud music is switched off and those who are willing to have more fun, go to the clubs. And such Old town becomes the nicest place for a night walk.

    Prokletije Mountains (Prokletije) is a unique mountain range, full of attractions and pristine natural beauty, which is located in the National Park Prokletije. Prokletije Mountain or Balkan Alps (Albanian Bjeshket e Nemuna, Montenegrin - Prokletije) - is a huge mountain range, which is located on the Balkan Peninsula. He is one of the most neglected and rather mysterious sights in Montenegro. The name of the massif, as you might guess, it is literally translated as "cursed mountains." The name of this place makes involuntarily thinking about the bizarre associations in the style of fantasy: the mountains of the Curse, keeping the mystical treasures in its bosom, which can be found only by a select few. These peaks can be conquered only by the most courageous braves. In addition, the Prokletije Mountains is called the Balkan Alps or North Albanian Alps, the similarity of shape and the strange fact that at a relatively low altitude (up to 2.5 km) in their narrow gorges almost all year round snow tongues are stored.   "To this land, through which for centuries caravans passed to Constantinople, nature has been truly generous. Streams, fast mountain rivers, about twenty caves and mountain peaks, among which Zla Kolata, the highest mountain peak in Montenegro, the height of which is 2.534 m above sea level "  director of Plav Tourist Organization Huso Brdakich Prokletije Mountain range is located in the border area of the three countries: Albania, Montenegro and Kosovo, but most of it is still in Albania. It is located at quite a distance from such famous Montenegrin resort places such as Budva, Petrovac, Kotor and Tivat. Around the mountains such settlements as: Pec, Djakovica (Kosovo), Bajram Curri (Albania), Podgorica (the capital of Montenegro and the largest city) and village Gusine, as part of the Republic of Montenegro, are arranged there. The picturesque mountain Prokletije system is located in the Dinaric Alps, in the southern part and extends in a direction from east to west over a distance of about 100 kilometers. In Montenegro, the mountain is considered to be the beginning of the north-western terminus of the Skadar Lake. The southern slopes of the tributaries dehydrogenate from Drin River north - tributaries of Lima and the north-western - tributaries of the Moraca River. Before the arrival of the Slavs in these places, here lived the Illyrians and there is also evidence that the Greeks and Romans visited these places. The first traces of man in these lands belong to the seventh century BC – it is confirmed, for example, by a drawing of a deer hunter (Iron Age) in the cave Grebaje, ten kilometers from Gusinje . This cave is one of the three existing in Montenegro caves with ancient drawings, located at an altitude of 1300 meters above sea level, in a remote place. A bit later drawing on a stone block was found on the mountain Popadija, not far from the abandoned summer pastures Valusnica. It depicts the struggle of men and women with a wolf, that attacked their child. It is assumed that this image, called the "Great Mother" (Magna mater), was created in the middle of the Bronze Age, 600 years BC. The highest peak of the mountain system Prokletije is mountain Jezerca, the maximum height of which reaches 2692 meters above sea level. Among the other peaks of the mountain range it is also possible to note the following: Radohina (2570 m.), Dzheravitsa (2556 m, the highest point in Kosovo.) Shkelzeni (2407 m), Tromeda (2366 m). The slopes of the mountains Prokletije strongly dissected and up to altitudes of 1700-1800 meters above sea level, covered with centuries-old relict trees: oak, beech, maple, chestnut, fir and pine; and above these heights there are mountain pastures (Katun) and vast, picturesque Alpine meadows, which in some places are covered with snow. The Prokletije is supported by a special microclimate, which is due to the fact, that there is snow in its gorges even in the hottest summer days. The massif is composed of limestone, dolomite and shale, karst is also widespread there. The depth of the massif Prokletije hides many of these natural treasures: amazing glacial lakes, stunning scenery, swift waterfalls, which are among the stone walls carry their water, and clear springs. One of the main attractions of this region are considered to be Plav Lake and Hridskoje lake. Plav Lake is the largest among all the glacial lakes in Montenegro. It lies at an altitude of 907 meters above sea level. To date, this body of water is considered to be one of the most popular places of eco-tourism, as well as a real Mecca for fishing fans. In Montenegro, there are no fountains, in which, according to the tradition a coin is thrown, make a wish ... Instead, in the mountains of Prokletije there is Hridskoje lake. It is also called the "Lake of happiness," as it is believed that bathing in it gives beauty, health, love and a lot of children. To make the wish come true, after swimming in the lake you need to throw some jewel or a precious thing. Although it is at a decent height, more than 1,800 meters above sea level, in the north-western side of Prokletije, but still it’s not difficult to reach the lake from Plav and Gusinje. Its length is 300 meters and a width is about 160. In summer, the lake depth is about five meters, and in the rest of the year is much deeper due to heavy rains and melting snow. In winter it covered with thick layer of ice. There is a variety of mythical legends and stories about the lake. One of them tells that it is created by gods, and presented it to the forest fairies to enjoy a swim. When people discovered the lake, the fairies had to leave it, and the gods in anger and sadness became to deliver thunders in the surrounding mountains, and cursed them, turning it into bare peaks. Since then, the mountains, according to legend, were named Prokletije, but the lake is left with clean, clear, healthy water. The other local legend has it, that once an avid trader of Plav heard about the miraculous lake, and secretly, at night went to the lake to collect all the jewels and pearls, which rested on its bottom. When he collected the treasure, and began to count them, by the glitter of gold and silver against the moonlight, he became blind. Mortally frightened merchant began to sob loudly, and his sobs echoed through the mountains. Since then, the lake has been called "Hridskoje". Prokletije Mountains are adorned by other beautiful mountain lakes - Rukavicko, Bukumirsko, Ropojansko, Tatarijsko, Kolindarsko, Gardacko and a dozen of smaller lakes. With the exception of Plav Lake, the others are typical example of a natural phenomenon, received poetic name "mountain eyes". There are a lot of springs with crystal clear mountain water here. Some of them, such as the well-known sources of Ali Pasha, not far from Gusinje, are of particular value and attractiveness for tourism.   "Never until now I have not felt so much beauty of nature, the warmth and hospitality of the local people, in these mountainous regions. There, under the tall mountain peaks, everything is fine and mysterious. This nature does not exist anywhere in the world "  Ana Lisa (well-known journalist and publicist, employee of the London-based publisher "Bradt Travel Guides) Also, at the foot of the massif, a monastery Visoki Dečani is located on the territory of Kosovo, which stores unique ancient frescoes. Prokletije Mountain range, in addition to the above is also a paradise for all those, who truly appreciate active rest. Especially for those, who like climbing and paragliding, who come to Montenegro for extreme relaxation.

    Kolasin is a small resort located 73 km north of Podgorica on the left bank of the Tara River at an altitude of 960 m above sea level. It is surrounded by three mountain ranges - Sinjavina, Komovi, Belasica. Today, the community of Kolasin occupies 897 km2, about 3000 people live here.  History of the city Here already in the early Middle Ages the settlement of the Slavs was founded. The fertile lands of Kolasin, reliably protected from winds and cold by mountain "walls," have for centuries been the cause of controversy. The city-fortress, reliably protecting mountain passes and approaches to the sea, was founded by the Turks who then owned these lands in 1652. The city circled the outpost of the caravan route through Podgorica in Bijelo Polje. A part of Montenegro, Kolasin became only in the late 19th century and almost immediately became a popular resort town.  Attractions of the city From an excursion point of view, Kolasin is an unremarkable city. There are no famous monuments, old city or popular museums. However, this town is considered the center of mountain tourism in Montenegro throughout the year. And not only in winter, but also in the summer, visitors who prefer fresh forest air, mountain trails and natural beauty to the sea coast come here. One may see in Kolasin the ruins of the Turkish arsenal (500 meters south of the city center) and a central park with memorials in honor of killed in the Second World War. In the central square is opened a historical museum (Trg Vogas, 1), where are several exhibitions - ethnographic, historical and art. In the southern part of the city there is a botanical garden, in which more than a hundred samples of mountain plants are collected. Kolasin is a small and extremely compact city. Dimensions of Kolasin exceed many of the world's ski resorts. Its total length is 15 km. The ski tracks are located 8.5 km from the city.Lifehack: from Kolasin to the ski resort, you can get by a taxi (according taxi meter 10-14 euros one way) or by SKI-BUS. The bus from the city to the slopes is organized by hotels Bianka and Lipka, so for the guests of these hotels it is free. In the hotels themselves they say that only their guests may take the bus. But in fact,this bus can take anyone who wants, paying about 3-4 euros. If you have not settled in one of the named hotels, ask the owner where and for how much you can take that bus. From year to year this information changes.The ski season in Kolasin usually starts from the end of December and continues until the beginning or middle of April. However, there is a possibility that there will be very little snow in the Kolasin during the New Year holidays. Still, the height is small. But from mid-January to the end of March, snow will be for sure. Just in case, the tracks are equipped with an artificial snow machine, as in many other modern European ski resorts. In Kolasin there is good lighting, which allows you to ski in the evening. On the slopes there are two modern lifts - for children and adults. Ski lovers have the opportunity to hire a professional instructor, highly skilled specialists with international experience work there. If you did not take skis and equipment - this is not a problem, you will find everything you need at the box office right on the ski slopes. There are 7 tracks in total, not counting the transitions from track to track. All of them are cut in the forest and intertwined, which allows each time to change the route of descent. The lowest point is at an altitude of 1450 meters above sea level. The highest is 1973 meters. In the ski resort Kolasin there are 5 lifts, not counting the children's one. Three rope tows (№4, 3, 5) and two chairlifts (№ 1, 2). Ski lift number 1 is the most popular in the resort. It is a modern 6-seater chair lift, which delivers to the top in 6 minutes. Because of the high bandwidth, it's impossible to stand for more than three minutes in a line. Rope tow № 4 works non-stop and is very popular, because all beginners ride it. With the maximum influx of people on it you can stand in line for no more than 5-7 minutes. Rope tow No. 3 usually works if there is a large number of skiers. The rope tow No. 5 at the peak is the least frequent to work. Only when there is a lot of visitors and good clear weather. Chair lift №2 - "old resident" of this resort. He lifts two on an armchair, goes slowly, has the opportunity to retreat halfway. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the peak. There are no queues for it ever. The elevator almost always works when there is clear weather on the top.Lifehack: Also on the slopes there are two restaurants with open heated terraces. Dishes are delicious, but prices are higher than in the city.What to do in the winter in Kolasin? • Skiing and snowboarding • Winter photo safari • Rafting • Winter hiking in the mountains • Paragliding • Climbing • CampingWhat to do in the summer in Kolasin? • Jeep Safari • Rafting • Mountain biking  • Kayaking • Canoeing • Speleology • Fishing • Paragliding • Hiking • Eco tourism • Horseback riding • Pilgrimage tourism (Culture tourism) • Excursions • Climbing • Camping • Photo safari • Gathering of forest berries and herbs  What to see in the vicinity of the city? It is worth paying attention to the Monastery of Moraca, a sample of architecture of the 13th century. It is a stone throw from the center of Kolasin, on the highway E80. The Orthodox Monastery of Moraca is located on the high bank of the same name mountain river Moraca, which forms the famous canyon of Moraca, sometimes reaching a height of 1000 meters. The famous monastic complex is an important monument of medieval architecture and consists of a large Church of the Assumption of the Virgin, a small Church of St. Nicholas, buildings with monastic cells and a rich subsidiary farm (you will see apiary, sheep herds, and turkeys with ducks) - all against the serene murmur of the mountain river, which swiftly carries its emerald waters somewhere below. It is worth visiting the Djurdjevic Bridge over the Tara River on the way to Zabljak. Plavskoje lake is best visited in the summer. Also, you can spend time exploring the National Park, the territory of which extends to the city. Especially appreciate the natural beauty of lovers of ecotourism, because in walking distance are the oldest forests in Europe. Epicenter of forest resources is Belasica, and the pearl of the reserve is Biogradsko Lake, one of the largest among the 5 glacial lakes, on the shore of which it is possible to rent a cottage for several days.  How to get to the city? The distance from Podgorica airport to the city is 80 km, and from Tivat airport - 160 km. From the airports to the city one can get by taxi. It is better to book a car in advance, since a taxi in the airport itself is usually 2-3 times more expensive than the standard taxi tariffs. The railway connects the city with Belgrade.Lifehack: hotels Bianka and Lipka organize a free transfer for their guests. You can also rent a car and ride the to the slopes by yourself. If you have a big company and besides the skiing in Kolasin, you are interested in the rest of Montenegro, then this will be the most profitable option. Moreover, having a rented car in Montenegro, you can ride to the slopes of Zabljak, living in Kolasin. The journey takes about 2 hours one way.Lifehack: if you rent a car, be sure to check that there is a set of snow chains on the wheels in the trunk.  AccommodationThere are different accommodation options in the city of Kolasin. A lot of positive feedback was received by the four-star hotel "Bianca Resort & Spa" with a stone and wood interior and a spa complex, as well as a small three-star Hotel Cile with a good location in the center. Also you can always rent an apartment.Lifehack: should be aware that the prices for the New Year, namely from 25.12 to 14.01 higher at 1.5-2 times and find something free becomes difficult already from the middle of November.  Cafes and Restaurants In the first minutes of acquaintance, Kolasin strikes with comfort and tranquility. This is especially noticeable for those who come to the ski resort in the morning. It’s difficult to believe that there can be secular and night life there. Such a first impression is erroneous. Kolasin is a secular resort. There are many cafes and restaurants of different price level. But especially it is necessary to allocate 2 restaurants: Savardak and Konoba. The very word "savardak" means something like the tepee of local residents. The restaurant inside and outside looks exactly like the Savardaks built in the old times by local people. The menu is rather modest, only a few dishes. And this assortment has been preserved for many years. Because these dishes, firstly, are prepared only in this region (even on the coast you will not find them), and secondly, they are prepared terrifically delicious. For a couple of visits you can try the whole menu, but remember the delicious taste of them for a long time. Restaurant Konoba is located in the center of Kolasin. This restaurant has a richer menu. Preparation is very tasty to. But the atmosphere of the restaurant is most appealing here. It is like an old wooden house of a local resident. Very warm, cozy and original. Especially when candles are placed on tables in the evening. There are two well-known night clubs in Europe - Select and 66. The advantages of the ski holidays in Kolasin are the high quality of the slopes (two of which have been certified by FIS, allowing to hold international competitions here), as well as modern equipment and high quality of service. In Kolasin an annual cup of skiers "Golden ermine" is held in February - competitions for snowboarders. The ski base in Kolasin was completely modernized in 2008, which makes the resort town no less attractive than Zabljak or any other European ski resort. Together with the unique healing air, it is an excellent choice for winter outdoor activities.

    Dajbabe monastery (serb. Manastir Dajbabe) – acting male Orthodox monastery in Montenegro, located at 4 kilometers from the capital of Podgorica. Monastery with a long history for its unusual location: it has a small system of caves in the form of a cross and an underground water source. In these catacombs in the 3rd century BC were hiding from the persecution of the early Christians. In the monastery complex includes the monastery Church, which is dedicated to the Dormition of the blessed virgin. Here the relics of St. Symeon the Wonderworker. Etymology of the Slavic name "Dajbabe" has a prayer petition "Give!" and appeal to the Woman (the Slavic word "Baba" had in ancient times pejorative connotations, as later in the Russian literary language). The place was anciently dedicated to the virgin Mary, and the Slavs in this name preserved the tradition: "Dajbabe" is an appeal to the virgin.The monastery was founded in 1897 on the site where the shepherd Petco (then – hieromonk Platon) saw a miraculous vision. The founder and first Abbot of the monastery was the monk Simeon Dybovskiy (in the world Sava Popovic) (1854 - 1 APR 1941), postrizhennyj of Kiev-Pechersk Lavra.According to the legend: Once in the monastery of Ostrog came Petko Ivezic, a poor peasant from the village of Dajbabe. He told father Simeon, of the vision that he was not in a dream, but in reality, in 1890. In a deserted place Petco saw a man dressed in gold embroidered robes and with the hat, on which was depicted a cross. This man said: "I am not an evil spirit as you think. I'm a Saint, but I'm buried by the Turks. I was the Lord of this land and disciple of the great Saint, I Want you to built me a monastery." It Petko, who was an orphan, said, "I am poor, father." – "Rich and do not need. There would be a desire. Build the first little Church". Father Simeon realized that we are talking about the disciple of Saint Sava of Serbia, whose relics the monks hid from the Turks that they should not have polluted the sanctuary, as, alas, happened in Serbian history from the Ottoman yoke, but he Petko, talking about the vision, did not know about this story, because it was known only to educated people. The monk Simeon decided to help the young man by the will of the Saint. This plan was blessed by Metropolitan and endorsed the Montenegrin king Nicholas I. The stories of old residents, in the monastery of the caves before the Foundation of the monastery was a Christian image, perhaps even the first centuries of Christianity, when the Christian services were held in the catacombs.

    The Magara (or Megara) Cave is located in town-council of Podgorica, next to Tolosi town, at the heart of the mountain Velje. The popularity of the cave was provided by its availability. It is located near a residential place and can be seen from a road. Despite it seems neglected, the cave looks incredible inside. The Megara Cave can be called on of the most interesting objects for speleological exploration. The exploration of the cave was started under the supervision of Professor Iovan Petrovich first in 1962. Just then some have suggested that it has supernatural power, so the cave was called "magic" and "creepy". After three decades another scientist- speleologist Vidak Yukich after his visit to the cave, provided an idea to transform the cave into the center of alternative medicine. The scientist has presumed that atmosphere inside of the cave is ideal for treatment and relief of asthma symptoms, respiratory disease and some psychoneurological conditions. Scientific and speleological exploration of the cave has not been performed properly. First attempts to complete description of all galleries and inner units have been taken more than 10 years ago, but the work has not been completed. The cave is still waiting to be explored. The scientist- speleologist Vidak Yukich has provided an official name for the cave as "Megara" according to Megara school of thought founded by Euclid. Local population consider that the name "Megara" originated from the word "magic" because of the mysterious properties of this natural sightseeing of Montenegro. Citizens of Podgorica are sure that "Megara" means "magarad" (it is translated as "back side"). The cave was tagged with such name because it is very easy to get lost among its labyrinth.

    The city of Pljevlja is in the northern part of Montenegro, in the picturesque valley of the rivers Cehotina and Brznica. It borders with Zabljak, Bijelo Polje, Mojkovac, as well as with Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The city covers an area of 1346 km2 and is located at an altitude of 770 m above sea level, the highest point of the municipality is Ljubisnja Mountain (2238 m), the lowest one is the Tara River Canyon (529 m).   History of the city Before the invasion of the Greeks in the first century BC, Illyrian tribes lived here. On the ruins of the old city, the Greeks founded the city, which became the cultural center of Dalmatia. On its ruins were found many values: jewelry, glass and ceramic vases. In the VI c. the Slavs conquered these territories, and the town of Bereznica appeared. The city received its name after the river, which flows through the city. Later Bereznica became one of the main cities of the Serbian state Raska. Through the city passed the main road from Dubrovnik, Trieste and Kotor to Constantinople, Sarajevo and Belgrade. In 1338 the first customs house was opened here. Its current name, the town of Pljevlja has been from the 14th century. According to historians, the city received its name in honor of the fertility of the soil of the territory of the monastery, on which crops were grown. Two centuries later, the city was conquered by the Turks and renamed Taslidzh. During their reign, water and sewage systems were built here, mosques, fountains and gardens appeared. In 1569, the Hussein Pasha Mosque was built, which is a masterpiece of eastern architecture. In 1878, Pljevlja was under the siege of Austria, an army of 5000 soldiers with women and children entered the city. During the reign of the Austrians, Pljevlja was turned into a modern western city with hotels, bookstores and a theater. The first modern pharmacy, a photo studio, a hospital, a brewery were opened. In 1913, the city became part of the Kingdom of Montenegro, and after the First World War - a part of the Yugoslav Kingdom. After World War II, since 1945, it is a part of Montenegro. Pljevlja is also one of the main driving forces of Montenegro economy. There is a power station, deposits of coal, lead and zinc in this area. The city has well-developed woodworking industry, agriculture and cheese production. In this region there is a large number of forests, which contributes to the development of ecological and winter tourism. It is Pljevlja, that has the only power station in the country that provides half the population with electricity. Want to try the famous Pljevlja cheese, considered a delicacy? Then head to this beautiful city with every reason.   Sights The city of Pljevlja is strongly interwoven with the Islamic and Christian religions. The symbols of the city are two cultural, historical and archaeological monuments: the Monastery of the Holy Trinity and the Hussein Pasha mosque. For several centuries the Holy Trinity Monastery was one of the main centers of spiritual, educational and cultural life in the northern part of Montenegro. This was especially evident during the years of Turkish rule. The exact date of the construction of the monastery was not preserved, but it can be attributed to different sources by the 15th century. A documented mention of it is found in the annals of 1537. The monastery acquired its present outlines in the 16th century and, with all subsequent changes, tried not to violate its traditional appearance. The Church of the Holy Trinity was built in the 16th century by the abbot of the monastery Vissarion. The main church of the monastery is decorated with rich jagged carving, typical for the architectural style of Raska. This one-nave church with a large porch. The painting of the walls was made by one of the most famous Balkan masters, Strahinja Budimljanin. For several centuries there existed workshops for books rewriting. Each of these folios, equipped with illustrations of monastery icon painters, was a real work of art. Some of them, as well as rare copies of the first prints, are still stored here. In addition to the literary treasures in the temple there is a magnificent collection of icons, expensive old church utensils and many other priceless shrines. To reach the working monastery, located about two kilometers from Pljevlja, is easy. From the city to it is laid a convenient footpath. Monks are glad to all visitors, and pilgrims to holy places from different countries often stop to spend the night or rest in a hospitable monastery. Perhaps the most significant monument that has remained since the time of the Ottoman Empire is the Hussein Pasha Mosque built in the 16th century. The mosque was built between 1573 and 1594. It was named in honor of Hussein Pasha Boljanic, born in the village Boljanic near Pljevlja and gained the authority of the Turks with his activity in Constantinople. He also acted as the main contributor of this construction. For the erection of the mosque, gray unprocessed stone was used, which was then decorated with small ornament. The square base is crowned on four columns by a large dome in the center and three small on the sides. The mosque has 25 windows. On the south side there is a minaret with a height of 42 m, it appeared here in 1911 on the site of the former one, destroyed by lightning. This is the highest minaret in the Balkans. The interior of the mosque is rich and beautifully decorated - the walls and vault are painted in classic Turkish style with floral patterns and phrases from the Koran, this is one of the best works of Islamic calligraphy of the 16th century. The floor of the mosque is decorated with an original carpet of 1573, made by order from quilted leather in Egypt, its size is 10x10 meters. Today, Hussein Pasha mosque houses many valuable books and ancient manuscripts, for example, a 18 century Koran in leather binding of 233 pages, complete Arabic script and decorated with 352 gold-plated miniatures.   What to see in the vicinity of the city? Near the city of Pljevlja there are excavations of an ancient Roman settlement. According to the documents it is called Municipum S. It is believed that in size this settlement was second one only after Duklia. On the right bank of the Tara River canyon, near the village of Premcani in the municipality of Pljevlja, there is the Dovolja monastery. The medieval monastery Dovolja, together with other monasteries of this region, has long been the spiritual center of northern Montenegro, and in the 19th century it was completely destroyed as a result of the struggle of the Montenegrin people for independence against the power of the Ottoman Empire. The monastery has been destroyed and rebuilt several times in its history. In 1804 the monastery was robbed and burnt by Turkish troops, in 10 years the monastery was rebuilt, but in 1857 the Turks again destroyed it. In the seventies of the XIX century the monastery Dovolja was rebuilt. Finally the monastery was destroyed in 1875, it happened during the uprising of Herzegovina, by the efforts of the Turks, it was almost wiped off from the face of the earth, and a major fire in 1886 completed the destruction of the monastery. At the beginning of the 20th century, the remains of the monastery became the subject of research by historians. In 1934 the journal of the Serbian Scientific Society published a detailed study of the monastery of Dovolja. Committee for the reconstruction of the monastery complex was founded in 1998. After 150 years of desolation in 2002, the monastery bell resounded here, and in 2008 the Assumption Church was consecrated. And today the working male monastery of Dovolja belongs to the Milesevski diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church. The town of Pljevlja is partially located in the territory of the Durmitor National Park, which is famous for its natural wealth. The main tourist sites of Durmitor are the Black Lake located in its highest part, around which there is a park with paths, you can walk and ride a bicycle, you can also just sit on a bench by the lake, admiring the surrounding nature, or take a water trip on a rented boat; This is the Mlinsky stream, surrounded by ancient fir and spruce forests; It is Crna Poda, a grove of rare black pines, many of which are over 400 years old and over 50 m long; This is the canyon of the Tara River, the second largest in the world and the deepest in Europe, with the grandiose Djurdjevic Bridge; this is Ice Cave, lying at an altitude of 2180 m, within which nature has created a whole kingdom of stalagmites and stalactites; This is the highest point of the country Bobotov Kuk, to which climbing tours are organized in the summer, and climbing is available even for beginners and takes about 10 hours, from the height of this mountain in good weather you can see the Lovcen mountain range located off the coast in another part of the country.   How to get to the city?

    Ultsinckaya salt-works is located in the farthest southern part of Montenegro and covers approximately 14.5 km2 of saline pool. Ulcinj is the sunniest city of the former Yugoslavia. There are 2567 hours of sunlight in the year in Ulcinj. Thus, Ulcinj is an ideal place for salt-works, taking into consideration, that for salt production must be good evaporation of sea water. There is an ideal habitat for birds from all over the Adriatic Sea, the Balkans and the Mediterranean in the city. It is recorded 241 bird species in Ulcinj, it is 50% of the total number of bird species recorded in Europe. 15 species of birds use the pools for nesting, wintering or resting during spring or autumn migration, which is higher than 1% of the total number of birds on planete. On the surface of 15 km2 live - 3% of pelicans Pelecanus crispus, 3% tailed Godwit Limosa limosaili and 3% of red-snipe Tringa erythropus. On salt-works make nests 55 species of birds. Almost half of the total number of breeding pairs of aquatic birds make their nests in the salt-works. 70 species, recorded in this area, are of special interest for the protection of EC. Flocks of herons also inhabit the salt-works, but their number is decreasing faster than other groups of birds, primarily because of the uncertainty of the environment. On the return from Africa, tens of thousands of swallows use salt-works as a place of rest. It happens that the Hirundo and Delichon swallow fly on the whole territory. Travnik, Saxicola rubetra, yellow wagtail, motacila flava, Spotted Flycatcher fly in flocks of up to 10,000 birds per day! On the salt-works in the spring will be more than 40,000 birds per day. By the fall most of the birds migrate to the South, and birds from Siberia and Northern Europe arrive for the winter, spending the winter in the warm Mediterranean conditions, with occasional rain, small frost from the surrounding mountains and the gale-force wind.

    One of the historical monuments of Montenegro is the fortress Španjola, which is located on one of the highest hills of Herceg Novi, at an altitude of about 170 meters above sea level. The hill, at the top of which the fortress was built, is called Bajer. The fortress is located to the northeast of the old town of Herceg Novi, not far from the main Jadranski put (the Adriatic highway), which runs along the coast and connects numerous settlements in Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Croatia.  Lifehack: people call the fortress "Spanjola", which literally means "Spanish fortress", but in official documents it is referred to as Gornji grad. Outside the bastion of Spanjola looks very impressive and although almost nothing is intact inside it, it is worth a visit... In addition to the already mentioned elegant view of the surroundings, the fortress can offer a unique and amazing excursion to the past. Here you can still see the ancient barracks, loopholes and various farm buildings, touch the mighty walls and military structures that came into the power of nature (ivy, grass and trees) and disappear upon our eyes, but despite this, they retained the rebellious spirit of the past. History of the fortress of Spanjola. Despite the name of the fortress Španjola, which, as already mentioned, is word for saying "Spanish fortress", this defensive fortification refers more to the Turkish military-historical heritage. The thing is that the owners of the city for only one year (1538-1539), the Spaniards managed only to lay this fortress (in 1538) and begin to build it, and only the Ottoman Empire, ruling those days in the Balkans, led it to the final and impregnable form. Interesting facts: Admiral of Spanish fleet Andrea Dori unexpectedly appeared in the harbor of Herceg Novi in June 1538, and next day the Turks surrendered the city. The Spaniards left a garrison of 6,000 men here, and understanding the importance of the defensive fortress, they immediately began building and repairing the walls of defensive fortifications. But only in 9 months, in 1539, Ottoman Admiral Hajrudin Babarosa with the huge Turkish fleet regained power over the city of Herceg Novi after a long and difficult siege. Initially, the architecture of the fortress Spanjola was more like a church and bore the name "Fortress of Charles V". After the conquest of the city in 1539, the Turkish sultan Suleiman decided to change its appearance radically, further strengthening and making it even more impregnable. For this he surrounded the fortress with high walls with four round bastions protruding at the corners. This construction lasted from 1539 to 1548 and the fortress received a new name-the Upper Town (Gornji grad). This event is still described on the plaque over the entrance in the Arabic language. However, despite all this, the popular rumor, for some reason, fixed the name Spanjola behind the fortress. Interesting facts: It is known that the Turks were very proud of the fortress built by them. In 1548, when all the work was completed, they hung a sign over the entrance with an inscription in Arabic, in which it was said that this building appeared thanks to Suleiman, the son of the great emir Seliman Khan, who erected it according to the decree of the Sultan. At the end there was a phrase that could be translated like this: "And the poets, whom the path will bring here, look at me, and exclaim enthusiastically: "And great it is a beautiful building!". During the history of its existence, the bastion in Herceg Novi survived and changed many owners. Since 1687, the Spanjola fortress, together with half of the Boka-Kotor Bay, fell under the authority of the Venetian Republic and was part of its fortifications until 1797. On various maps and engravings of that time the fortress was designated as "Fortezza superiore", "F. di Gornigrad u Koronelija" and "Castello u Mortiera". In 1806, the defense in the fortress was held jointly by Russian-Montenegrin troops fighting against the army of Napoleon. Interesting facts: At that time, four thousand Russian soldiers, led by Dmitry Sinyavin, helped the Bokelians and Montenegrins to set free the bay from the invaders. From the fortress Spanjola troops placed fire on the French, who reached Gornji grad only in two days, but could not win. In July 1807, according to the Treaties of Tilsit, the Russians still leave the fort and the Bay of Kotor to the French. Since 1814 onwards almost the entire 19th century, the fortress of Spanjola with the whole bay was in the hands of Austria-Hungary. In the second half of the 19th century, after the construction of such forts as Mamula, Arza, Prevlaka, and fortifications on Lustica, the Spanish fortress lost its exceptional strategic importance, which consisted not only of its high location - 170 meters above sea level, but also in strong and unapproachable walls along the entire perimeter. However, the fort continued to play a rather important role in the defense of the bay and the city of Herceg Novi due to its favorable location. In the XX century, the fortress was part of the Kingdom of Slovenes, Serbs and Croats created after the end of the First World War, until it finally became the property of an independent Montenegrin state. During the Second World War, the fortress was decided to use not as a military position, but as a prison. Nowadays, Spanjola is almost completely abandoned and given to the power of nature - now its walls and buildings are heavily overgrown with grass and ivy, bushes and trees, forming impassable thickets in some places and buildings. Architecture of the fortress Spanjola. The fortress Spanjola is built in the form of a regular geometric shape: in terms of it it is a square with four round bastions at the corners. The walls of the fortress have a slight slope away to the sea, and the main entrance to the fortress was located on the eastern side. Inside the fort there were various structures - arsenal, barracks, mosque (during the Turkish rule), some of which remained to this day. Interesting facts: such a plan of the fort - a square with four wide towers in the corners, is also in the drawings of the famous Leonardo da Vinci. In their day, every ruler, having seized this part of the land, built or changed something in the fortress... Venetians, for example, built a high semicircular wall between two bastions facing the sea, thus forming a patio. They also laid down the second staircase to the fortress walls, moved the entrance and remade the Turkish mosque to the officer barracks. The Austrians also contributed to the strengthening of some changes, based on the requirements of the times and their needs, but mostly they were annexes next to the fortress. If you look at the fortress from the side of the mountains, then on the left a long wall is attached, connected with the uneven terrain and thus enclosing another large courtyard. Judging by the masonry, this wall is of later time, obviously, it was built by the Austrians. On the outside, to the right of the gate, a commemorative plaques hang on the wall, which appeared in Yugoslavian time. One of them reminds that on this place on 4.09.1914 the Austrians shot two fighters for the freedom of the people - sea captains Philip Hadjiyu and Milan Srzentich. The second one says that on the night of 13-14 February, 1942, the three partisans of the Orion battalion destroyed the spotlight of the Italian invaders in the fortress. Near the entrance to the artillery battery is a small structure under the armored dome, intended for the gunner-spotter. Also on the territory of the fortress there is a mobile communications tower, which local residents have been trying to remove for several years now. So far, unsuccessfully. In those days the fortress was completely autonomous - there was also a source of water, a bakery, and other necessary life support systems. She was almost a small town. Interesting facts: Between all three fortresses of Herceg Novi: Spagnola, Kanli-Kula and Forte Mare, there are underground passages. Currently, the tunnels have partially collapsed, but in the 70s of the last century, according to stories of local elderly residents, many of them got into them during childhood. The construction of the underground passage is, perhaps, a very reasonable and strategically important decision for the defense of the city. In the old days, the threat to the town of Herceg-Novi might proceed only from the sea side and in case of loss of the lower fortress, the defenders could freely and without risking go to the fortress above and from there continue the defense of the city. View from the fortress Spanjola to the Old Town of Herceg Novi. View ofKanli Kula; to the right near the water there isForte Mare fortress. View from the bastion of Spanjola on the Bay of Kotor, the bottleneck is the Strait of Cumbor. How to get to the fortress Spanjola? In Montenegro, to get to the town of Herceg Novi, specifically the fortress Spanjola is possible in several ways. It should be noted immediately that without a reliable guide (a person or an electronic assistant), it will be a little difficult to find a way to the fort, as only narrow streets and a staircase of 1000 steps lead to the fortress. But, having climbed them, a magnificent panoramic view of Herceg Novi, Igalo and the Bay of Kotor will burst upon your eye. First, you can get there by bus or shuttle bus from almost any city in Montenegro, both from the coast (Budva, Tivat, Kotor, Bar) and from the central part (Podgorica, Niksic, Cetinje). It is worth saying that this is the most budgetary way of traveling around Montenegro, not counting of course hitchhiking. See the schedule of buses in Montenegro for every dayhere. Secondly, you can get to the fort on your own or rented car. A rental company will be able to deliver your rented car immediately to the airport (Tivat or Podgorica) on your arrival or to your place of residence in Montenegro. The advantages of this method are obvious - you choose the route, the departure time, the cities to visit and the time of sightseeing and historical places during the trip. When you drive along the Adriatic highway to Herceg Novi from Tivat, then after a steep climb, before reaching the bus station, there will be a right turn to the mountain (opposite Kanli Kula). There you will see the brown tourist sign Spanjola. Climb up the narrow road, winding between the houses before turning left, next to which will be a large ad board. Turn there, and in 200 m of steep ascent you’ll see the fortress. There you can park the car, and then go on foot to the fortress itself. Lifehack: Always remember about the Kamenari-Lepetani ferry in Montenegro, which is an alternative and short road to Herceg Novi from other cities. Its price is about 5 euros per car, but the path takes much less time (the difference is about 1 hour). Thirdly, you can take a taxi to the fortress. The only thing that can scare off is the price for the transfer. Before you order a taxi, see the approximate price of the trip or a fixed transfer price (depending on the city of departure) on our website page or in our free app "Way to Montenegro" on the Google Play. The fortress Spanjola nowadays. Few tourists are aware of Spanjola fortress in Herceg Novi nowadays, since it is located far from the city center, in the mountains. There are no excursion groups, and not every tourist can find it independently. But this shouldn’t be an obstacle for tourists, since from this historical monument an amazing and stunning view of the entire city and the Boka Bay burst upon the eye, and the whole architecture of the fortress gives an opportunity to enjoy exciting walks and allows you to plunge into the wonderful world of the Middle Ages.

    A powerful fortress wall around the Ancient Town of Budva in Montenegro was rebuilt by the Venetians during the Renaissance after a devastating earthquake in the 17th century. The first defensive constructions of the city were erected here in the 9th century, and one of the ancient fortress walls was part of the Benedictine monastery that overlooked the coast. According to ancient engravings in the museum of Budva, the city fortifications of the 16th century has six somewhat elongated towers and one round one, between which stretched thick walls laid out of a hewn stone. Its borders were unchanged for several centuries, as well as the number of residents of the city did not exceed 1000 people. After the massive earthquake in Montenegro on April 15, 1979, with the magnitude of 7 points the "Old Grad" in Budva, like its fortress, was again destroyed and restored only by 1987. To date, the Old part of Budva is an architectural monument of antiquity and is protected by UNESCO.

Narrow aisles and staircases on the fortress walls of the city are found in several places of Old Budva. The entrance to the wall is paid and costs 1.5 euros. One of these passages to the fortress is located near the gate opposite the hotel Avala. To get to it, you just need to go inside the old city (the entrance to the "Old Town" itself is free), immediately turn left and go through the summer terrace of the Mozart restaurant. The second entrance to the fortress wall is located near one of the famous sights of Old Budva - the Citadel. Having approached it, you face the entrance, move left to the very edge, and then turn left and walk along the fortress wall. The fortress wall in shape is a horseshoe, that is, it is not closed and you can bypass only a part of the Old Town. Despite this, you can spend a lot of time looking at the brickwork and ancient loopholes, as well as enjoy stunning panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea, the mighty rocks, the marvelous nature of Montenegro and the coastal settlements. On the viewing platforms of the walls you can very often see people who specially came here to see the most beautiful sunset - at this time the Old Town itself is especially beautiful, the red tiled roofs of which shimmer in the dark from maroon to the fiery shades. It can be said for sure, that the fortress walls of the old city of Budva are worth visiting at least once and see all this historic splendor with your own eyes.

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 ...
