    As I already said “Savior” was filmed in Rijeka Crnojevica. This is a 1998 war film starring Dennis Quaid, Stellan Skarsgård, Nastassja Kinski, and Nataša Ninković. It is about an American mercenary escorting a Serbian woman and her newborn child to a United Nations safe zone during the Bosnian War.
    Here you can see the house over the river where Dennis Quaid had his position. The Old Bridge here in the picture, divided Bosnian Serbs and Moslems positions. And the new bridge was the place of where exchange of POW and captured civilians took place in the movie.

    Old Bridge

    The Montenegrin princes discovered quickly the beauty of Rijeka Crnojevica. Prince Petar I Njegos build a holiday house in the city. Prince Danilo I on the other hand was responsible for the construction of the photogenic bridge during his rule of 1826-1860. So, although this bridge if looking like typical medieval, in fact, it was built in mid of XIX century. First King of Montenegro Nikola I decided to build here a winter palace. The actual settlement Rijeka Crnojevica is approximately 200 years old. A visit to the city can easily be combined with an excursion to Cetinje or to the Skadarsko Jezero (Lake of Skadar).

    This is the right place to mention the fact that other countries would cleverly use in touristic advertise, but not mine :(
    In this place the first goverment printing office was found in fat 1493, only 40 years after Johan Gutenberg invented printing.
    It is obvious that my country was way ahead, when the writn word is conseared, at that time in Europe, with the exepsions for Rome(1467), Paris (1470) and Budim( todays Budapest,1473).
    The books were printed in cirilic alphabet, and that were first books printed among the whole slavic people.

    There is rich history connecting with this village. It was the old capital in the time of Crnojevic dinasty and an important trade town during the middle ages. A lot of remains from that period still exist but are little hard to find.

    Hiking from Rijeka Crnojevica to Virpazar is fantastic. Nerrow roads, lake pads, sleapy villages and on the end you would be rewarded with the view on the most beautiful part of Lake Scadar.

    The lake is very rich with fish. On this photo you can see how lokals fish from their own balconies. The Old Bridge is good spot to try it from.

    In the summer time you can have some excellent swimming, you just have to avoid little pads as they are full of (harmless) creatures. You can follow the locals.
