    The small town of Risan, located on the shores of the Kotor Bay of Montenegro, is remarkable for being the oldest settlement in this area. Located just a few kilometers from Perast and is strikingly different from it, it can even be described as abandoned and absolutely not touristic. Here you can even feel in the cafe real Montenegrin spirit. But still, if there is a visit to Perast in your plans, then Risan is definitely worth a visit because of one, but very unique attraction - Roman ancient mosaics.
     

    History of the city.


    The first mention of the city dates back to the III century BC when the city was a powerful and well-fortified settlement. Then it was ruled by the Illyrian Queen Tetoua, known for her warlike temper and a formidable pirate fleet. In those days, there was the first mint in the territory of Montenegro. During the Roman-Illyrian wars, the Roman Empire took over the centuries. This was the period of the heyday of Risan, after which remained a unique heritage of ancient culture, architecture and art. However, around 595 year, the city was destroyed as a result of raids by Avarian and Slavic tribes, as well as after a strong earthquake.

    During the Middle Ages, the authorities in Risan have been changed many times. So in the X century it belonged to the Serbian principality of Travunia, then was part of Zetas, and in the middle of the XV century together with the city of Herceg Novi was under the control of Duke Stefan Vuksic. It is known that in 1466 the Venetian Republic appealed to the duke with an offer to exchange these two cities for the island of Brač in the Adriatic Sea and the palace in Split, but was refused. In 1482, during the reign of his son Vlatko Hercegovic, both cities were conquered by the Ottoman Empire, under the rule of which Risan was over 200 years.

    Only in 1678, as a result of the military actions of the Venetian Republic, the city was included in the province of Venetian Albania. The next two centuries, Risan, like the whole Kotor Bay, belonged to the possessions of different states: Austria, France, Yugoslavia, and since 2006 has become a full-fledged administrative unit of independent Montenegro.

    Risan is especially famous for its monuments of the ancient period. In the I-II centuries there were built marble palaces decorated with sculpture and mosaics. Of them, only the remnants of the Roman patrician villa have survived to this day. It is known for its floor mosaic, among which stands the unique and the only one image of the god of dreams Hypnos in the Balkans. These ruins are rightly considered the richest heritage of ancient culture on the territory of Montenegro.
    Мозаики в Рисане
    In the center of Risan the Church of Saints Peter and Paul of 1601 rises. It is a single complex with a small chapel of St. Michael the Archangel, as well as a city cemetery. Of particular value is the collection of icons of masters of the Boko-Kotor school, kept in the church.

    To a later period belongs the partially preserved Velic mansion, the family nest. Their famous representative Marco Ivelic valiantly served in the Russian troops and achieved high rank.

    Lifehack: The cost of visiting the complex of Roman mosaics in Risan is 2 €.
     

    The beach of the city.
     

    The beach is in the city, its length is almost a kilometer. Conditionally it can be divided into 3 parts. The largest (central) part with a concrete platform belongs to the hotel Teuta. In accordance with European standards, the territory is regularly cleaned, toilets, shower cabins, locker rooms are installed. The sun loungers, umbrellas are at your service. Employees of the rescue service and the medical aid station work there. Those who like, can ride a catamaran or play volleyball. The laws of Montenegro guarantee free access to the beaches. However, at the peak of the season, tourists who do not live in a hotel can be denied. If the question is positively resolved, they will have to pay for the use of "equipment". But the visitors of the left and right parts are guaranteed of getting rid of an unpleasant surprise called "No vacant seats." Risan is not as popular as Budva or Kotor, so the beach, which width is 10 meters, it is always spacious. There are enough umbrellas and sunbeds at rental points, prices are generally available, while renting is voluntary. Water in the sea is transparent, which attracts snorkelers. The bottom goes down smoothly; the children splash in complete safety. Guests can enjoy water sports. In the cafe located on the beach, they are always ready to offer some light snacks, ice cream, drinks.
     

    What to see in the vicinity of the city?


    In the vicinity of the city there is a small town of Crkvice, located on the Krivosije Plateau on the eastern slope of Mount Orien. The town is known for the fact that every year about 5,000 mm of precipitation falls here, and snow 30 cm thick lasts from 30 to 120 days a year - this is the record of precipitation in the whole Europe. Massive archaeological excavations are conducted here, on Orien. Not far from the village Lipci, located 4 km from Risan, in the cave were found rock drawings of the Bronze Age, depicting scenes of deer hunting and others. This is one of the most important archaeological sites.

    Further the road goes along the coast of Kotor and Risan Bay towards Tivat Bay by a beautiful and strategically important place - the Verige Strait, the narrowest one in Boka. On its banks opposite each other are two small villages: Lepetane and Kamenari. The distance between them along the water is only 900 m, and in the old days the iron chains stretched between the banks, thus blocking the way to enemy ships.

    Lifehack: there is a ferry service between Kamenari and Lepetane, which cuts the way from Budva to Herceg Novi for 40 km. The cost of crossing by car is 4.50 €, and for pedestrians it's free.

    How to get to the city?


    If you follow the motorway by bus or a rented car from Kotor, the city is the next locality after Perast.

    Despite the size, Risan simply teems with nightclubs and discos. All around Risan there are scattered restaurants with delicious food made from local products. You can book a room in the Marble Castle - this building is modern, although it was built according to the architectural traditions of the region in antique style. There is a castle almost on the city beach, the proximity of the sea makes it even more visually attractive. The interiors of the castle are made with the use of expensive blue marble and decorated with decorative panels, openwork gratings, spectacular lights. For those wishing to stay on holiday, there are eight rooms in the castle, all of them equipped with modern appliances, comfortable furniture and have magnificent observation platforms from which you can admire the panoramas of the sea or the surrounding area. In the city itself there are only a few hotels (but there is a possibility to rent a villa or apartments), but nearby, in Perast, Kotor and other cities there are quite a few hotels for every, even the most demanding taste. Many of them are literally a few meters from the edge of the sea.

    Rest in Risan can become one of the most enjoyable moments of life. The general atmosphere of life in this city is such that fully confirms the thesis that, man is born to sit back. The slowness, tranquility, and benevolence of local residents has a beneficial, almost therapeutic effect on tourists.

    Old Venetian Castello Fortress is a main attraction of the Montenegrin town of Petrovac and its symbol. It is located in Budva Riviera, in the northern part of Petrovac, on a high cliff. The fortress is located on a natural promontory and is washed by the Adriatic Sea from all the sides.

    An observation deck, Museum, cannon and stela are available for visiting. The museum has examples of the amazing Roman mosaics, murals and paintings. Some of the examples available at the museum date back to III century BC. The upper area of the ancient fortress is a memorial today, where you can see a stela dedicated to the fallen soldiers of Montenegro, and in particular for the residents of Petrovac during the Second World War. The top of the observation deck of the fortress offers a magnificent view of the sea, the bay and the town of Petrovac. Above the fortress, the flag of Montenegro is flying, which is a symbol of independence.

    In the midst of the holiday season in the building of a small fort is opened a nightclub "Castello", which is widely known around Montenegro. The rocks, on which the castle is situated, are illuminated with multicolored lights after sunset. There also occasionally hosts themed "Russian parties" and other actions aimed at the Russian-speaking Montenegrins. Visiting disco Castello, it is difficult to imagine that hundreds of years ago in the basement of the fortress serf slaves were held, purchased for sale in developing countries.

    Fortress Castello, which is enclosed by a high fence-wall of large stones, for several centuries represented a pattern of impregnable full protection of local residents against possible attacks of the enemy. Today, on one side of the stone cliff attached an artificial pier, which performs the function of a small berth. One can reach the berth by boat or a cutter, moor and completely safely get to the perimeter of the ancient fortress. In addition, having got in the Castello fortress from the mainland, you can leave the cape, going down to the pier. Local people working there as boatmen, with great pleasure make an interesting boat trip along the local coast, and can introduce you some of the sights and islands nearby.

    The history of the fortress.

    Once at the site of the Montenegrin town of Petrovac was the settlement of Lastva, founded by the Romans back in the III century A.D. In the XVI century, the Republic of Venice established a rule over the village. With advent of the new rulers, about 1420, local villages were rapidly grown with beautiful buildings with a rich exterior in the same classic style. Under the rule of Venice at that time there also were such Montenegrin towns as Kotor, Budva, Perast, Herceg Novi. The old districts of these towns have preserved ancient Venetian architecture.

    Actively growing, local villages each year become more prosper and expanded, causing unhealthy interest for many pirates and robbers of the neighborhood. In the result, for several decades in the mid-15th century, the village of Montenegrin coast suffered hundreds of treacherous pirate raids, penetrating through the beach at night in the depths of the village and takes the most valuable from local farmers. After a "brief" thinking enterprising ruling Venetians rendered firm decision to strengthen the defense of the villages through the construction of a stone fortress with high walls around the perimeter. The best place for the construction was a natural projecting promontory, from the top of which the whole bay of the village and the next villages along the coast were clearly visible, and there was an opportunity to apply the aiming cannon blows on the ships of robbers.

    Since then, the Venetian fortress Castello was a reliable protection from pirates and Turkish ships. Fortress really helped to protect the town, and basements were used as weapons,wine and olive oil depot. 

    In subsequent years, the fortress was used as a hospital for patients with plague during the terrible epidemics or as a military prison - during the First World War.

    Lifehack: It is noteworthy, that the name of the fortress Castellum combined with the name of a former Roman settlement Lastva, and for a very long time, until the XX century, the town had been called Castel Lastva (or Castio). A local hotel «Kastel Lastva» reminds today about this fact.

    Going in Petrovac or passing by, allow time and be sure to visit the Venetian castle Castello - believe, it's worth it!

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

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

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

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

    На горе, с вершины которой предстает перед глазами изумительно красивый вид на бескрайнее Адриатическое море, дивную и разнообразную природу Черногории, а также на некоторые местные поселения, расположился встроенный в скалу монастырь Градиште. Неподалеку от храма, всего в 4-х километрах, находятся популярный город Петровац и тихий семейный курортный посёлок Булярица, рядом же пролегает автомагистраль, ведущая в город Бар.

    Являясь одним из значимых памятных святых мест Черногории, исторический комплекс Градиште представляет собой уникальный образец фресковой живописи поздних времен средневековья. Построен монастырь был намного раньше, чем упоминается о нем в летописях XIV века, и задолго до времен правления Неманичей. По легенде, строительство комплекса началось на месте кладбища и античных строений - "граджевине". Именно они дали храму такое интересное называние Градиште или по-другому - Градац.

    Данный исторический памятник представлен тремя храмами, кладбищем и корпусом с кельями. Рядом со входом на территорию возвышается собор Святого Саввы. Расписан он Страхией Будимлянином в начале XVI века, имеет три звонницы и красивейший резной иконостас, над которым трудился Василий Рафаилович. Выложен собор чередующимися рядами кирпича в красно-белой цветовой гамме. Роспись южной стороны представляет святых Савву и Симеона, северной - Марию Египетскую "Млекопитательницу" , к ней в своих мольбах с дарами обращаются женщины, лишенные материнского молока. И по нынешний день сюда продолжают приходить молодые матери, принося масло и виноград, надеясь что святая услышит и их дети будут получать материнское питание в изобилии. Центральное место занимает храм Святого Николая. Внутри строения есть немного икон, но все стены, потолок и пространство расписаны фресками. На погосте нашла пристанище миниатюрная церковь Успения Пресвятой Богородицы, задуманная в деревенском стиле. Отличают ее фрески с изображениями прославленной династии. Симеон Мироточивый, Савва и Стефан Первовенчанный с сыновьями, Симеон Храпавой, Милутин, Стефан Дечанский и «светова кралица» Елена вошли в вековую историю храма.

    История храма Градиште полна трагических событий. Близкое нахождение с границей Турции грозило постоянными набегами соседей, поэтому принято решение возвести стену с бойницами, остатки их вместе с башней видны и поныне. Священники мужественно сражались с захватчиками, и однажды ранили пашу Кара - Махмуда, за что жестоко казнены турками. Но спустя 11 лет скадарский воевода уничтожен, а череп паши по сей день служит назиданием для будущих завоевателей. Он является памятным экспонатом и хранится в особом ларце.

    Монастырь с самого его основания и до Второй Мировой войны особое внимание уделял образованию, помогая овладевать знаниями детям, приходящим сюда из окрестных селений. XX век не обошел эти святые места своими разрушительными событиями: в первую мировую войну свирепствовали австрийцы, украдены были колокола, и Вторая Мировая оставила след - итальянские оккупанты подожгли и уничтожили все постройки. Спустя десятилетия святыми братьями все было восстановлено, здания отреставрированы, но произошедшее в конце 80-х землетрясение полностью уничтожило храм Святого Саввы, и частично разрушило кельи и церковь Святого Николая. Восстановление длилось долгих 13 лет до 1993 года и сегодня ЮНЕСКО оберегает это культурное наследие Черногории, внеся древний памятник истории в свой реестр.

    По сей день монастырь Градиште действует, являясь мужской обителью, и относится к православной общине Сербии. Игумен Павел, рожденный в 1952 году, выходец из Биелины, города Республики Сербской в Боснии и Герцеговине, служит здесь настоятелем с 1979 года. Градиште окружен интересными памятными местами, которые невозможно оставить без внимания, посетив монастырь. Стоит обязательно посетить красивейший город Будва, который расположен рядом и имеет огромное количество достопримечательностей как древних времен так и современности. Могущественные крепости-цитадели, монастыри, культурные объекты, исторические памятники окружают прекрасные природные парки этого курортного города на побережье Адриатического моря. Также непременно посетите Венецианскую крепость Кастелло, расположенную в городе Петровац, в музее которой можно увидеть картины из мозаики, датированные III веком до рождества Христова.

    Еще один населенный пункт с интересным названием Бар, находящийся неподалеку от Градиште, богат старинными церквями, дворцами, памятниками, зданиями из тесанного камня. А в одной из оливковых рощ города продолжает расти Древняя Олива с объемом ствола около 10 метров, возраст которого более 2000 лет!

    Чтобы попасть в монастырь Градиште, можно доехать автобусом до Петроваца, а оттуда можно заказать такси и проехать направо в сторону Бара через тоннель, и от него отсчитать 3.5 километра. Также вы можете взять в прокат автомобиль и доехать до монастыря по указателям, которые присутствуют на дороге. Пеший маршрут к храму довольно сложный и запутанный: сначала он ведет через футбольное поле по направлению к пляжу, а затем пересекает хвойный лес и поднимается в гору. Далее следует спуск по направлению Булярицы к проходящей внизу автостраде и, перейдя трассу рядом с заправкой, нужно пройти еще метров 200, направляясь к Петровацу и потом следовать по указателю вверх к Градиште.

    Истоки реки Пива (Piva) находятся на склонах горы Синяц в Черногории, далее она проходит по территории соседнего государства Боснии и Герцеговины и соединяясь с рекой Тара образует реку Дрина. Это необычайно красивая несудоходная горная река, длина которой составляет 34 километра. Пива имеет множество притоков, а общая площадь водного массива реки составляет более 1200 км2. Второе название Пивы – «река с пятью именами», пошло от названия 5-ти её притоков: Тушина, Буковица, Биела, Комарница и Пива.

    Река Пива протекает по одноименному горному каньону, глубиной до 1200 метров, который изредка пересекают навесные деревянные мосты, соединяющие дороги между окрестными деревнями. Этот район Черногории малонаселен, поэтому здесь до сих пор сохранились заповедные условия. Строительство промышленных предприятий в окрестностях запрещено – так что воду из реки можно пить без опасений. Рядом с истоком реки находится христианский Пивский монастырь, история которого довольна интересна.

    В 70-х годах XX века на реке была построена плотина Мратине, в результате чего образовалось уникальное и очень красивое Пивское озеро. Это второе по величине пресное водохранилище в Черногории, глубина которого достигает 200 метров. Заповедность и таинственность здешних мест не смогла нарушить даже построенная несколько десятилетий назад гидроэлектростанция.

    Река Пива традиционно относится к лучшим местам для туризма и активного отдыха в Черногории. Здесь проходят всевозможные пешеходные и велосипедные экологические маршруты, есть места для рыбалки и охоты, проводятся сплавы на рафтах и байдарках для любителей активных водных видов спорта. Также эти районы идеально подходят для скалолазания, альпинизма и спелеологии. Отметим, что в районе каньона реки Пива до сих пор встречаются уникальные виды флоры и фауны.

    Пивская природная зона открыта для свободного туризма. Прозрачный воздух, звенящая тишина и непокорная изумрудная водяная стихия – что может быть лучше для отдыха после непрерывной суеты мегополисов? В поселке Шчепан Поле, где река Пива сливается еще с двумя реками, будут рады принять всех желающих побыть наедине с собой и природой. Отдыхать в этом районе приезжают не только иностранцы, но и местные жители.

    Bukumirsko Lake is one of the legendary lakes in Montenegro. It is surrounded by the mountains and located 1443m above sea level.
    There are some legends about this lake. One of the legends goes about fabulous dragons living there and protecting the lake from ancient people. One says in Montenegro "Water brings happiness". This legend is closely connected with the lake. Long ago, a traveler passing by, stopped to look for a spring to quench his thirst. But he had never found water. And then, he exclaimed: "If the God could provide me possibility to drink some water, I would gain strength and make my way". At that moment water started flowing out of rocks and filled the whole valley.

    Formerly the lake was inhabited by Bukumirsko tribes, non Slavic nation arrived from Romania. They had on their mind to eliminate the dragons. So the fire was set up near the rocks. They threw huge fire stones into the lake. In return, dragons cursed the tribe as a punishment for their unwillingness to live in harmony with the nature. The legend says, that the curse came true and the tribe disappeared by mixing with other nations, just the name of the lake was left.
    Today Bukumirsko Lake becomes a popular place for visiting. There are electricity, guest houses and motel. Probably, numerous tourists will destroy the charm of the lake, but more people can enjoy this beautiful place. You can get here by an asphalted road from Podgorica.

    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.

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.

    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.

    Island Old Ulcinj is located in the northwest part of Ulcinj Riviera near small town Vidikovac. The area of this small island is only 1.7 hectares. Being sited 150 meters from the shore, it is not habitable, has a rocky origin. However, it is fairly well known among tourists, because for a long time it was thought that island was nothing more than remnants of ancient Ulcinj - Venice town Dulсigno sunk after an earthquake.
    Modern archaeological studies allow us to say that it was a Venetian tower-guard outpost. Specially built on the outskirts of Ulcinj to warn people of impending danger in advance. This explains the similarity of architectural techniques with Venetian buildings of Dulcigno era.
    To get to the island one can only by boat.

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.

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 ...
