    “VLADIMIR’S CROSS”

    “VLADIMIR’S CROSS” – is kept in the Andrivic family as
    the greatest relic. Each year on May 30th, the day of
    the Saint Trinity, the cross is carried to the place on
    the top of the mountain Rumija where according to
    the legend there used to be a church.

    Stretching in NW-SE direction, Mt Rumija with its highest
    peak Rumija (1594 m) is the southest mountain of Montenegro.
    As a Dinaric natural barrier, Rumija separate Adriatic Sea from
    the Skadarsko Jezero lake. With the height of 1594 m,
    it drops steep towards the Adriatic coastline and somewhat
    less steeply towards the southern part of the lake. Rumija i
    s very special and unique mountain with one leg in the Adriatic Sea
    and the other leg in Skadar Lake.

    Nik&#353i&#269ko pivo

    by JLBG Updated Oct 12, 2005

    Nikšičko pivo is found almost everywhere in Montenegro. I know, I should have put this tip in a "Montenegro" page but the first we drank on arrival in the country was in Dobra Voda, about 3-4 km after we were out of the city of Bar. We found it was excellent : light but fruity, with just enough bitterness. A great beer

    Death announcements

    by JLBG Written Oct 12, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the whole Balkans, including countries from ex-Yugoslavia, Albania and Greece, death announcements are fastened on trees, walls, etc, of the city. If I took this photo, it is because these five death announcements show the various populations living in Stari Bar.

    On top, the Latin cross and Latin fonts says that it is a catholic.

    Underneath, the green frame and on top the moon crescent with a star, written with Latin script but with an Arabic script title is of a Moslem.

    The third, written in Cyrillic script, without any cross should be an atheist Serbian or Montenegrin.

    The forth is too written in Cyrillic but the part where might be a cross is hidden.

    The last on, underneath is written in Cyrillic and the style of the cross shows that it is an Orthodox Montenegrin or Serbian.
