    Niksicko Pivo

    My first Niksicko Pivo in Podgorica

    Montenegro's most popular local beer is Niksicko Pivo, which is brewed by the Trebjesa brewery in Niksic. After Podgorica, Niksic is Montenegro's second largest town.

    The brewery produces four lagers: Niksicko pivo, Nik Gold, Nik Cool, and Niksicko tamno. During our 2 weeks in Montenegro I enjoyed quite a few Niksicko pivo and Nik Gold.

    Nowadays the Trebjesa brewery is owned by the world largest brewer Anheuser–Busch InBev.

    Montenegrin currency: Euro

    I found it quite an interesting fact to know that Montenegro is neither a member of the European Union nor a member of the so called Eurozone, but that the country has adopted the Euro as official currency.

    Prior to the introduction of the Euro, the German Mark (Deutsche Mark) was the currency used in Montenegro.

    Of course Montenegro does not have issuing right for the Euro, therefore they don't have their own coins with a distinctive national design.

    Get Dressed

    If coming during the summer, expect pretty high temperatures. This, however, shouldn’t encourage you to come to this place half-naked. I remember two years ago when a priest didn’t allow a girl to enter the room where the relics of St. Vasilije were displayed. The strict “dress code” does not exist, but if you want to feel comfortable, to show respect, and to be respected, try to be dressed “properly”. That’s the least everyone can do. The trousers and T-shirt will be fine. You will see many people dressed this way or that way, but that’s due to the fact that many tourists come expecting to see some great tourist attraction, and not knowing where they were actually coming to. This is not such place. In the first place, this is one of the holiest Orthodox places.
