    Fortress (fort) Kosmac is an ancient fortress built by the Austrians as a defensive structure and a vantage point. While Montenegro had no access to the sea and the fortress served as a watershed between the lands of Austria-Hungary and Montenegro territory. The complex was built over 10 years, and construction was completed in 1850. The total area of fortifications, including two floors, basement and a spacious courtyard, is impressive - 1064 m²! Inside the bastion, there was a tank with a supply of water, and nearby - outside the walls of fortress, there were barracks, but today, nothing is left. Exterior view of the fortress appears upon the eye as a majestic central circular bastion, which runs two wings, which, in their turn, also ends in round bastions, but smaller ones. The walls are arranged in three layers. The outer layer is made of very smooth adjusted to each other stones. The middle layer - medium and very small stones of irregular shape mixed with a solution. The inner layer is made of roughly processed stones.About Fortress importance for Austria-Hungary, testified the fact, that in 1875 the bastion even won the visit of the Austrian Emperor Franz Josef. Later the fort was used by the Austrians during the First World War. During World War II, the fortress was owned by the Italian troops. The fortress is located on the hill of the same name, at a height of 800 m above sea level near the village Braici, not far from highway Budva -. Cetinje. This castle is seen by many people, because it is perfectly visible from the highway Budva - Cetinje. However, few have visited it because of the seeming inaccessibility. But Kosmac Fortress is not so difficult to get, as it seems at first glance. If you are coming from Budva to Cetinje, after a long ascent above the coast, the road begins to go into the mountains to the left and you enter the village Braici. Don’t hurry here, after some time there is a hardly noticeable turn to the right with a brown tourist sign. Turn and drive carefully along the narrow asphalt road. Be careful, the road surface is very old and in some places is destroyed, but the passenger car copes with it. After passing through the village, you will see the end of asphalt, and at this point the road forks. The main road goes farther to the left and to the right, with a strong upward slope, there is a broad trail, the former Austro-Hungarian road. In order not to block the road, you can park the car, driving into the start of the trail – enough place for one or two cars. From here to the fortress is a five-minutes’ walk. In principle, it is possible to leave a car on the highway in Braici, if you do not want to ride on the bumpy road and park in the hills in a narrow place. Then your journey on foot to the fortress is around 15 minutes. Climb up the hill on a wide trail, by winding serpentine with the Kosmac Fortress wiew. The view from this bastion is truly stunning and impressive: from here Budva Riviera from St. Stephen island to Budva is perfectly visible, the endless Adriatic Sea, the main highway along the coast (Jadranski Put), great nature and a huge number of local settlements.Lifehack: Currently Kosmach fortress is in ruins and in abandoned state and therefore you can enter inside it, but it’s dangerous. And if you do decide, we recommend you to do this with great caution and move very carefully: the roof is almost destroyed, the stones in the ceiling arches keep literally "on good faith". Montenegrin tourist authorities attempts to begin the process of restoration and reconstruction of the object now, as an important cultural and historical monument, also located at a short distance from the popular seaside resorts. Despite the fact, that excursions are not organized there, this fort can be visited by all-comers tourists got there by car or bicycle. Entrance to the castle is free.Fortress Kosmac is an interesting attraction in Montenegro, which, we think, unjustly deprived from the attention of tourists. Believe me, it’s worth visiting at least once - to see all this splendor with your own eyes.

    Montenegro, without a doubt, is one of the countries where there is a huge number of holy places filled with hidden secrets and God's grace. On its territory there are still ancient temples of Byzantium, the Ottoman Empire and the rule of other conquerors. One of such settlements in Montenegro, in which the destinies of the East and the West intertwined, and which is equally close to both Christians and Muslims, is the town of Pljevlja. Two sacred places of different religions, two historical, archaeological and cultural monuments, which became a symbol of the city - the Orthodox monastery of the Holy Trinity and the mosque of Hussein-Pasha Boliani, are located here. In this article we will tell you about Holy Trinity Monastery of Plevsky.   Holy Trinity Pleven Monastery. The Orthodox monastery of the Holy Trinity (Serbian Manastir Sveta Trojitsa Puevska) is a monastery of the Mileshevsky diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church. It is located in the north of Montenegro, 2 km from the town of Plelev, 61 km. from Durmitor National Park and 36 km from the famous Montenegrin landmarks - Djurdjevic Bridge over the Tara River. The history of the monastery of the Holy Trinity. The monastery of the Holy Trinity in Plelev was roughly built in the 15th century. The first documented mention of the monastery in the annals dates back to 1537, although some researchers indicate the date of foundation even before the Ottoman conquest of the city in 1465. This assumption was confirmed in the study of prominent orientalist Adem Khandzic. He cites two Turkish sources - one of 1468, and the second in 1477-1479, in which it was noted that there are Orthodox churches in several newly conquered settlements - Pljevlja, Chajnice, Gorazde, Novi Pazar, and Visegrad. Constant wars in the territory of present Montenegro led to the fact that the monastery was repeatedly destroyed, rebuilt and rebuilt. Today's appearance he found only in the XVI century, during the restoration of 1875-1886, and already with all subsequent restructuring people did not violate its traditional appearance. At the same time, under the rector of Vissarion, the Church of the Holy Trinity was built, an ascetic building with a single dome. Its external feature is the rich notched carving, characteristic for the architectural style of Raschka and fresco painting, made in 1600 by the famous Balkan master Strahinya from Budiml. The frescoes, which have been decently preserved to this day, depict scenes from the Holy Scriptures, the representatives of the Nemanjic dynasty and the Suffering of Christ. On the southern wall of the nave is depicted the ktitor Visarion (Vasilye) with the model of the church in hands, before Christ. On the north-western side of the nave, the representatives of the Nemanjic dynasty are depicted: Stephen Nemanja (as a monk Simeon), Saint Sabbas of Serbia and Stefan Uros III of Dechansky. Until now, the magnificent iconostasis of the same period has survived. Throughout its long history, the monastery of the Holy Trinity was the spiritual, cultural and educational center of the entire nearby district, a place for decoding and censusing of many ancient books, as well as a workshop for performing artwork on wood and creating objects of decorative and applied art not only for Plevly, but for all Montenegro. Here was written not one dozen books, and still in the library of the monastery stored tracts and manuscripts of the XII-XIV centuries.  In the XVI-XVIII centuries the monastery acquired the fame of a major literary center and a place where religious books were manually written. The most famous works of the monastery scribes: "Shestodnev" by John Exarch and Kozma Indicoplova, "Verhobrezhnitsky chronograph" and other collections of psalms. Many manuscript books were provided with illustrations by Andrei Raichevich, a local icon painter who worked at the monastery in the middle of the 17th century. In addition to the literary treasures in the sacristy of the Holy Trinity Monastery, today there are many ancient treasures: a magnificent collection of icons of the local painter Andrei Raichevich, expensive old church utensils, artifacts from silver, gold and wood, censer of the work of Venetian masters, Patriarch Varnava's miter, and the special pride of the repository is the cane of St. Sava, covered with a metal frame.There is a legend associated with the monastery, probably not every guide will tell you.  Even before the Turks attacked the country, the relics of the great saint Savva of Serbia, who is revered not only in Serbia, but everywhere in the Orthodox East, including in Russia, were kept in the Mileshev monastery. However, when there was a threat of Turkish raids, the monks from Mileshev, taking with them their shrine, leave their monastery. It was hard for them to carry a kiot with the relics of Sawa, and then they placed it in the ark and left it near the road near Pliev. In the meantime, we reached the monastery of the Holy Trinity and informed the local monks about it, the kiot found a peasant passing by. The peasant decided that this chest might be useful to him - he took it with him, put it in his barn, having put apples there for storage. Surprisingly, apples, lying until the summer, did not deteriorate in any way and miraculously smelled of peace. Once a peasant went to the monastery of the Holy Trinity, he brought the apples to the monks. The monks began to question where he had fresh apples at such a time. The peasant told them about that most magical trunk. The monks asked for the chest as a gift, since it was not a simple chest, but a kiot with the relics of the most holy Sawa of Serbia. And now it is kept in the monastery of the kyot, in which lies the staff of Sawa. To reach the functioning monastery of the Holy Trinity in Plevl is quite simple. From the city to it is laid a convenient footpath. Monks are glad to all visitors, and many pilgrims to holy places from different countries often stop to spend the night or rest in a hospitable monastery.

    Drugi po veličini kanjon u Crnoj Gori koji se karakteriše strmim obalama - Kanjon reke Morača.Reka Morača je najveća pritoka Skadarskog jezera. Kanjon izgleda kao da sastoji od dva dela: ravnog, koji se uliva u jezero opštine Podgorica i planinskog koji počinje na severnom delu Crne Gore kod planine Ržača. Tačno na planinskom delu svog toka reka je probila u stenama kanjon dubine do 1000 m, koji se odlikuje strmim obalama, ali zahvaljujući glavnom putu koji se proteže duž njega, odlično je poznat većini turista. Lokacija: kanjon se nalazi u srednjem delu toka reke Morača pre njenog izlaza na Zetsku ravnicu, na teritoriji opština Podgorice i Kolašina. Dužina reke Morača je više od 100 km, a kroz planinski kanjon se proteže samo 30 km u srednjem delu reke i reže kllisuru koja se sastoji od vertikalnih krastovih stena. U delu Tisovog vrha koji je najdublji u kanjonu, dubina kanjona je oko 1000 m. Kanjon reke Tare ima veću dubinu, ali kanjon reke Morača ima strmije obale. Reka Morača je prilično opasna u nekim delovima jer u vreme polava brzina protoka može biti veća od 100 km/s, pored toga je i dovoljno krupna, retko kad njena širina je oko 100 m a dubina nije veća od 5 m.Jako je zanimljiva činjenica da bez obzira na visoku opasnost, je glavni magistralni put koji se proteže od primorja Crne Gore do severnog dela države i Srbije. Taj put vredi proći jer je prelep, a pejzaže koje pruža su izvanredni i neverovatni.Na obali kanjona se nalazi jedna od najpoznatijih znamenitosti Crne Gore – starinski manastir Morača koji je osnovan 1252. godine. Obično kada turisti prolaze kroz kanjon obavezno posećuju taj manastir. Takođe mnogi ribolovci dolaze na pecanje na obalu, jer je Morača bogata ribom.

    The city of Niksic is located in the central part of the country at the foot of Mount Trebjes, 50 km from Podgorica. There are many roads leading from the coast to the heart of the country. Through the city goes a road connecting Podgorica with Bosnia and Herzegovina. The surrounding area is no less beautiful than the highlands of Montenegro - there are also lakes here (Krupac, Slano, Liverovici), monumental mountains towers up (the height of Niksic itself is 630 m above sea level), and the Zeta River flows past.History of the city.Niksic was founded by the Romans as a fortified military camp in the IV century BC on the site of the old Gothic settlement at the intersection of important roads. Then it bore the name Anagastum. Slavs who came to this region in the Middle Ages, changed the Roman name of the city to Onogosht. After the Ottoman conquest, the Turks once again took over the city - then it became known as Nikshic, and there the Turkish fortress was rebuilt. Gradually, the inhabitants became cramped within the fortress walls and they moved to the valley, where later the main city appeared.Turkish rule ceased in 1877, when Nikshic was liberated by the army of Nikola I Petrovic Njegos, the expulsion of the Ottoman Empire gave a new impetus to the development of the city - the rapid construction began there, the population began to grow. Most buildings of this period of development are associated with the name of architect Josip Slade, for example, he built the Cathedral of Basil of Ostrog, the palace of Nikola Petrovic Negos, the Royal Bridge, several parks and many other objects.In 1883, a plan of the development of Niksic was drawn up, which began to be implemented by the architect and town planner Josip Slade of Trogir. The first three decades after drawing up the plan are characterized by the explosive growth of urban production and trade, the establishment of various cultural and educational organizations in the city. By 1900, various attractions were built in Niksic: the Orthodox Church of St. Basil, the Royal Palace, the main city square with six streets that diverged from it, several parks. After the Second World War, the city was renovated and reconstructed. Niksic grew tenfold and became one of the important industrial centers of Montenegro.Niksic is the second largest industrial center in Montenegro after Podgorica. Here are located the metallurgical plant "Niksicka Zeljezara", a bauxite mine, a brewery "Niksicka Pivara" and other large enterprises. The wars of the break-up of Yugoslavia passed Montenegro, but left the Nikšić factories without suppliers and markets, which caused a complete decline in production, which lasted until the end of the 1990s. Many enterprises of the city were closed, others fell into decay. The business life of Niksic began to recover only at the beginning of the new millennium. The surviving plants were privatized and have now adapted to the new conditions. However, these enterprises cannot employ as many workers as they were employed in times of socialist Yugoslavia. Therefore, the city's economy is gradually transformed into economy of service. Well-being of the city is held at three large enterprises: the metallurgical plant, the bauxite mine and the brewery "Trebjesa", which produces the popular beer "Nikšičko", which is sold throughout Montenegro and the region.SightsThere are several interesting sights in the city that you need to visit. It is worth starting from the central square, where the streets run to the north and east, and thus form a "web". Not far from the square there is the palace-museum of Nikola I Petrovic Njegos in the Renaissance style, in which now there is a museum of local folklore, the city park and the Freedom Square.Lovers of historical monuments can also see the ancient Turkish fortress Bedem at the entrance to the city.The fortress was built by the Turks in the 18th century after the conquest of the Slavonic Onogost. They surrounded by the fortress walls only the upper city, where the Ottoman administration was located, while the lower part of the settlement, populated by artisans, was outside the fortification and had its own defense system. The fortress was always the site of battles for the city during numerous wars, the last battle near the walls of the bastion occurred in 1878, when Niksic was liberated by Montenegrin prince Nikola I.Be sure to visit the church of St. Basil of Ostrog, which was built in the 19th century. The Church of St. Basil keeps a memory of the heroes of Montenegro who gave their lives for her freedom. The temple is beautiful itself, and even better it makes a park, laid out. This architectural ensemble is called Saborn.Visit the bridges on the Mostanica River, Royal and Vukov. The Royal bridge is considered one of the most beautiful bridge structures in the country. It belongs to the creative heritage of the famous architect Josip Slade and was built at the end of the XIX century on the money of the Russian Emperor Alexander III, in honor of which he received his "royal" name. The bridge is located at the exit from Niksic along the route of the old road to Podgorica and goes over the Pandurica River. The stone structure has a length of about 269 m, the embankment on either side of the bridge extends almost 600 m long. The bridge consists of 18 arches, the maximum height of the span is 13 m. A small pedestrian bridge is located in the lower part of the structure in the area above the Pandurica River.In the middle of Niksic cemetery you can find the oldest church in the district, which bears the names of St. Peter and Paul, which is a rather rare name among the numerous Montenegrin temples. According to legend, this church belongs to the IX century, and once Saint Sava served there - the first patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church. The church is located in the center of Niksic in the city cemetery and not far from the cathedral of Basil of Ostrog. Among other things, the ancient Turkish mosque Hadi-Smailov is perfectly preserved here, and in the immediate vicinity of the city an ancient human settlement was discovered - the Red Rock (Crvena stijena).The city hosts numerous international festivals, such as the International Festival of Actors, the International Chamber Music Festival and the International Guitar Festival. At the end of summer there are the famous "September Days" in Montenegro, during which theatrical and cinema nights, meetings with local poets and writers, various exhibitions are organized.What to see in the vicinity of the city?Niksic is waiting for lovers of skiing with a little experience. On the slope of Krnov, near the canyon of the river Komarnica, less than 20 km from the city is the ski center Vučje. At the disposal of holidaymakers - 4 tracks (their total length is about 3 km) and three ski lifts. Slopes are gentle, which is convenient and safe for the development of mountain skiing.For those who are interested in the history of Orthodoxy, we advise to visit the monastery Zupa. The history of the creation of the monastery is full of unexpected turns and drama. Legend has it that it was originally erected on the right bank of the Gracanica River, but was soon destroyed by a devastating rockfall. The monastery was restored, but history repeated itself. Then the locals dismantled the remains of the monastery literally by brick and moved the construction to the other side of the river. But - again a failure - it was burned by the Turks. And only at the end of the XIX century the monastery was rebuilt in the form that it now has.In the vicinity of the city in 1960 the Perucica hydroelectric power station was built here, which contributed to the formation of three artificial lakes: Krupac, Slano and Vrtac. These lakes so organically blended into the natural landscape and are beautiful, which gradually became the favorite recreation places for residents. Many people say that this is the best place for walking in the vicinity - Krupac Lake. It is located 5-6 km from the city, and here you can see many interesting things. The lake is full of fish, and in summer there are often competitions of anglers. And if you are not a fan of spending time with a fishing rod, equipped beach and promenade are at your service.How to get to the city?Niksic is connected with Podgorica by a two-lane highway E762. Podgorica Airport is 70 km away. Also from Niksic the roads through Shavnik to Zabljak and via Trebinje to Bosnia (with a branch to Risan and Kotor Bay) go. The budget way of transportation will be the bus. But it is also possible to take a taxi. The most convenient variant of the journey will be a rented car.Food and accommodation.Niksic is as hospitable as other cities in Montenegro. You can find and choose for yourself any type of accommodation during your holiday: rent a private apartment, book a room in a hotel / inn, or rent a villa or a private house. You can choose the suitable accommodation on the page of our partner - the company Booking.The cuisine in cafes and restaurants is traditionally European and Montenegrin. In Niksic, as in any major city, there is everything from shops to bars and night discos. For everyone who likes a foam drink, it will be a special pleasure to be in the city, as there is a beer factory producing brands of various kinds of beer "Niksicko", popular in Montenegro.

    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.

    Tivatska Solila - a unique natural bird sanctuary, which is located on the site of the former salt pans.. It is located near Tivat, between the airport Tivat and the peninsula Lustica. People come here to observe waders, including such unusual for these places, like pink flamingos or Javanese cormorants. On the territory special paths are made for visitors. It is recommended to arm with a good pair of binoculars before visiting this place, as the birds nest and feed away from the tourist paths. If you come without binoculars, do not worry: you will be able to admire and make beautiful pictures of amazing local salt marshes. In the future, the Montenegrin authorities are planning to convert this reserve in the ornithological park that will attract there even more tourists.Tivatska Solila - is the place where in the Middle Ages salt was collected, which was worth more than gold. The salt was formed from the evaporation of sea water and settled in special earthen ramparts. According to the extant historical sources in 1425, all Solila was divided into 109 plots, 24 of which belonged to the Metropolitan Zetas, 27 - to residents of Lustica, 10 – to residents of Dzhurashevichi village, 32 - to the town of Kotor and 16 - to Kotor noble families. Salt marshes were usually an "apple of discord" between neighboring countries, we are aware of several wars between Kotor and Croatian Dubrovnik for the right to dispose the salt revenues. When the salt marshes were no longer used for its intended purpose, they were chosen by migratory birds. Of the 111 species of birds that can be seen here, only 4 species live in Tivatska Solila constantly. Data on types of local residents are not static, and change every year. The most valuable items of Salila are a crane, sea hawk, snipe, greater flamingo and the Javanese Cormorant. This biodiversity makes Tivatska Solila a perfect place to observe birds. Besides birds in Salila live 14 species of rare amphibians and reptiles, 3 of which are threatened species.The territory of salt marshes was declared a conservation area in 2007.
