Great starting point for a trip through Montenegro.
Not too much to see.
In a nutshell
Podgorica - Montenegro's unknown capital.
Many believe that Medovina is a mixture of honey and Brandy. In fact, this Montenegrin drink is more related to wine, that's why it is referred to as honey-wine. It is made by mixing honey and water, the two main ingredients, after which it takes a whole year for the product to mature in the process of alcoholic fermentation. Its flavour is sweet and mild, and its alcohol by volume content is 12-15%.
Medovina (Mead) is independently multicultural. It is known from many sources of ancient history throughout Europe, Africa and Asia, although archaeological evidence of it is ambiguous. Its origins are lost in prehistory; it can be regarded as the ancestor of all fermented drinks.
Medovina was considered by the ancient Slavic warriers as the elixir of life, and was believed to possess healing powers. It was discovered that Medovina contains the entire vitamin B complex, along with other essential properties which can have a positive effect on fertility.
What to buy: The highest quality honey can be found in Crna Gora in the mountainous regions of Durmitor and the villages on the slopes of Lovcen.
Medovina was one of the drinks popular among the ancient Slavs, while today it is made at private village households according to traditional recipes.
What to pay: 20-25 Eur per bottle.
