photo 2 : Kajmak is milk cream that has been heated and let fermented. It has a fat content of about60%. It is usually home made and used as an appetizer or as a condiment. It is considered as national meal in Serbia, Montenegro and southern Croatia.
photo 3 : we tried a local dish named Kačamak. It is made with mashed potatoes mixed with kajmak and grated hard cheese. It is very filling and a real mountain dish! It is almost the same than the French Aligot. Aligot is a dish from Aubrac, a region of south central France, between Aveyron, Cantal and Lozère: mashed potatoes added with cream, fresh hard cheese and garlic

Both in Albania and in Montenegro, our little Silky Terrier always catches the interest of kids and they want to cuddle him. In the beginning, he enjoyed it but after a while, he felt that he had done the job and wanted to go away. However, even when he is bored, he never growls after them.

Favorite thing: “You can imagine nothing more beautiful then what nature endowed to this region long time ago”, many people would say about Kolasin and its surrounding. Little town settled on the height of 960 meters above the sea, whose blue sky is hidden by the slopes of the mountain Bjelasica, Sinjajevina, Vucje and Kljuca. Woods, the endless pastures, mowed fields in the summer, and unforgettable “snowy fairy tale” with water currents and lakes. “Untouched Switzerland”, was written by the delighted German journalist in 1998, after spending the winter holiday in Kolasin. And whatever the guests want, everything is really at their disposal. If they want to go skiing or sledding they can visit Bjelasica and its neatly arranged skiing and sledding paths with ski lifts, with the experienced skiing trainers, of course. If they want some fishermen adventure, they can visit one of the water currents teeming in trout or else, they can be accompanied by the experienced hunters and the guides in hunt on big and small game. If they choose nothing of it they can go in long but not less attractive walks and they will be surrounded by a wilderness on every single step. The exciting rafting along the Tara River usually begins from here. The most famous picnic grounds here are Biogradsko and Sisko lake and then two more lakes Ursulovacka and Pesica lake on the mountain of Bjelasica, then Rikavac above the source of the river Tar, Kapetanovo and the Mahnito lake on Trebjes.
Lovers of plant species should certainly visit the valuable botanic garden in Kolasin that posses more then hundred samples of the rare mountain vegetation adequately grown and examined on the area of more then thousand square meters.
There, where you need to take no aspirins in your luggage, you are to feel the influence of the unique mountain “sedatives” walking down the paths of the first little forest, on the mountain Bjelasica for example.
Fondest memory: The first written data on Kolasin is from 1565. Town of Kolasin was built on place where different cultures and civilizations were interfering, leaving their own marks till our days.
Nature itself gave to this little mountain town beauty and pride of grandiose mountains Bjelasica, Sinjavina and Komovi, with hundreds of years old virgin forests, unspoiled rivers Tara and Moraca and gracious mountain lakes.
Kolasin is settled in heart of Montenegro, and it occupies 897 km2. It spreads between two magnificent canyons: Tara Canyon in the North, and Moraca in the South.
The climate ranges from Mediterranean, in the valley of Moraca River, to moderate continental, subalpine and alpine in Kolasin and in the mountains. Average year temperature is 7.2°C, with maximal temperatures of 33°C and minimal of -32°C.
The most important local attraction is National Park "Biogradska Gora" on Bjelasica mountain.
Very important cultural and historical attraction is Moraca Monastery. Interior of Monastery is painted in frescoes with great art value. Especially outstanding is one of the eleven preserved frescoes showing the life of the prophet Elijah. Special place takes the cross in the altar from 16th century, carved for 12 years in walnut wood.
One of the most visited places in the area is canyon of Mrtvica River. Canyon is about 35 km southern from Kolasin. It is 9km long, and on some places 1100m deep. There is a narrow hiking trail engraved in stone.
Kolasin has the unique botanical garden, which represents flora of continental region of Montenegro. The great number of plant species from mountains Bjelasica, Sinjavina, Komovi, Prokletije and Durmitor present richness in flora of this region. It has an educational importance so you can get all sorts of information on endemic and endangered species, medicinal herbs and forest fruits.Botanical Garden is founded in 1980. and is a property of Mister Daniel Vincek.
