Montenegro Wild Beauty
There are three colors present in the Montenegrin landscape: blue, emerald green and iron gray, amazingly combined and interwoven, because of its priceless natural beauty, Montenegro was proclaimed an ecological state through a special declaration.The fabulously jagged coastline of the Adriatic sea offers you the variety of beaches, coves, bays and islets that you have been dreaming of. The reality is even more exotic then the promises found in tourist brochures. The world’s southernmost and probably the most celebrated fjord in verse, beautiful Mediterranean Kotor Bay was added to the list of twenty five the most beautiful bays in the world in July 2000, the others being mainly in Scandinavia. Kotor is situated on the southeast end of Boka Kotorska. The history of Kotor can be traced to the most ancient times. In the surrounding caves there have been found various tools and ceramics...
Adriatic Express, the proprietor of which also owns the Guest House Kasanegra at Przno, is a very efficient and helpful Montenegrin tourist agency. We contacted them by e-mail some time before we visited Montenegro and arranged for them to take us from Perast to Przno, to book us into the Guest House Kasanegra for a week, and to take us to Tivat airport at the end of the week. They also organised the Tara River rafting trip for which they provided an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. A nice finishing touch was that they, unexpectedly, paid our airport taxes at Tivat, which was particularly fortunate for us, as we had forgotten to keep back enough euros for them!
National park Durmitor
Durmitor is one of four national parks in Montenegro. It has incredibly beautiful nature; beauty of mountains, forest, lakes, rivers… Wild nature, wild beauty.http://www.nparkovi.cg.yu/eng/uvod.htm
Skadar lake is the biggest freshwater lake on Balkans. The place is where one can have peaceful state of mind. Silence around, greenish clean water, sun shine playing on water surface, hazily mountains on the horizon...what else is needed to admire by surroundings.
Mountains in Montenegro
the mountain areas generally,more specifically the area around the Tara Gorge: contact Gordana Stevovic (email@example.com for info on rafting, walking, accommodation)...shes so enthusiastic and really helpful.Also recommend walking in the mountains around Sedlo, SW of Zabljak....the road to Sedlo winds along a wonderful valley with endless walking possibilities, some marked trailsCoastline generally disappointing...packed out with sunbeds and blaring music and tourists while the mountain areas are empty
The mountain views
Orthodox church is the oldest Christian church. After Catholic Church separated from it in 1054 (and after Protestants from Catholics), and after Turks occupied most of Orthodox countries, Orthodox Church was organized depended of historical moment. Churches have Patriarch or Archbishop depending of the way they were re-established, during or after Turkish occupation. Countries which had Emperor now have Patriarchs. As the Churches don't recognized the Pope, and they are, in some way independence from each other, "First Among Equals" is Patriarch of Constantinople (Istanbul, Turkey) Bartholomew. The most powerful, and the biggest, is, of course, Russian Orthodox Church.The basic (and the churches where majority of population belongs to them) churches in their countries are Russian Orthodox Church (Russia, but also basic in Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova), Serbian Orthodox Church, Greek...

well they do not accept payments in "Serbian Dinars" so being advised: change all your Serbian Dinars in a "menjaçnica" before you end up in MONTENEGRO. visa card and mastercard are not widely spread be careful!the hotels are usually without A/C.
Cathedral of St. Tryphon in Kotor
The original Cathedral of St. Tryphon was built in the 8th century in the town of Kotor. The church in this picture was built in 1166 on the remains of the former cathedral. It was seriously damaged in the 1979 earthquake. Twenty-five years later, in 2004, restoration has made substantial progress.
Montenegro is perfect for sailing, peaceful waters and a great variety of adventures! Most of the people living there have boats and sailboats, as well as people living in other places, who visit Montenegr seasonally and keep their boats anchored there in the meantime. There are many ports where you can stay (like Tivat, Kotor, Bar, Perast, Ulcinj, etc), and the sailing experience is amazing!!!
What is better than a lazy day at the shore, a swing between the pine trees by the sea, as the soft breeze chills you out and brings the scent of sea, salt and pines... HEAVEN! This is my general LIFE tip, btw! ;)And a Montenegrin motto - just sit down and relax, and everything's gonna be just fine! No rush!
