The Undiscovered Jewel of Adriatic

Montenegro is a country in the Balkans situated on the Adriatic Sea, often called “the newest country of the world”. Once a destination for the rich and famous, tiny Montenegro has only recently begun a comeback after the breakup of the former Yugoslavia drove it off the tourism map more than a decade ago. With so much to offer, from miles of beaches to mountains, glacial lakes, and pristine forests, it's unlikely that the country will remain a secret for long.

STARI BAR

About six kilometers inland lays Stari Bar (Old Bar), completely deserted medieval town first mentioned in the 9th century. After a decade of “lonely existence” the ramparts of old Bar are a cultural center today. Take a little time to visit the studio of the unusual Montenegrin painter Naod Zorica, as well as the studios of the other painters located in the restored stone houses. There are relatively well-preserved remnants of the old towers, streets, and city ramparts, especially the cathedral of St. George and the church of St. Nicolas dating form the 12th and the 14th century.

This is also the region of the great olive-growers and olive oil producers. They can pride themselves on having the world’s oldest olive tree that sprouted two millenniums ago!

ULCINJ

The long sandy beaches will certainly catch your attention when entering Ulcinj. Long Beach (Velika Plaza) is 13 km long and commonly known as Copacabana among the locals. It is covered with the finest sand, said to have medical-healing effect because it is rich in minerals, recommended to individuals suffering from rheumatic problems and other diseases. The main characteristic of this beach is its shallow water. You can sail, surf, water-ski, play beach soccer or volleyball and sport fish with your friends.

This natural wonder of sand as fine as flour, rich with salt and iodine, extends as far as the eye can easily see. It is a perfect location where with aid of scenery, sky, climate and waters one can escape from the contemporary demands of life and feel at ease with nature. So much so that, if one is inclined, you can enjoy undisturbed contact with "Mother Nature" by visiting the settlement "Ada Bojana", location of the Europe’s largest nudist colony.

Ada Bojana is the artificial river island situated at the very end of the Long Beach, at the place where River Bojana enters Adriatic Sea. After a big storm in 19th century, a ship Merito grounded there. It is considered to be a natural reserve with a face of a national park. The composure of the long sandy beaches will take you away from urban everyday life. Get your body and soul in contact with Mother Nature, whether you are sunbathing, swimming, horse back riding on the beach, windsurfing or taking advantage of various other activities offered.

Ada is especially beautiful at twilight - where the amazing display of colors at sunset weaves the sun, sea, sand and sky into a majestic tapestry that melts into evening. The International Windsurfing School on Ada Bojana has been open since 1975 with the most modern, state of the art equipment for the new millennium. Beginners prefer the flat lake surface to gain their confidence and after a week of training with professional instructors they may feel confident enough to try their skills against the waves of the Adriatic.

If it is too hot on Ulcinj’s sand, then you can find shelter in one of the wooden huts on the banks of the river Bojana. You can see the unusual Kalimera, one of the ancient ways of fishing and perhaps taste the fresh fish specialties of the area. There are some of the finest restaurants along the river where you can see fish and fruits of the sea caught and freshly prepared on request in front of your eyes.

PETROVAC

Another amazing treat is the town of Petrovac where if the wind and tides are favorable one can witness the famous "Waterfalls" of Petrovac when a cyclical wave slams into the low-slung harbor wall and sends a vertical sheet of water 10 meters into the air. For those who are scuba- diving fanatics there are two charming islands of Katic and St. Sunday that remain an unforgettable experience for any diver that visits.

BIOGRADSKA GORA national park is a region of great importance and ecological value. It is one of only three remaining primeval and virgin forests left in Europe. It is essentially a European rain-forest jungle of almost impenetrable trees and vegetation. Many of the most ancient trees are over 500 years old and stretch 40-50m straight up toward the sun. There are 26 plant ecosystems, 86 species of tree and thousands of different varieties of plants. Nature lovers and ornithologists can marvel at the flight of eagles, enjoy the birdsong chorus and observe the breeding habits of 150 different species of bird. This forest is also the home of bears, wolves, deer, and foxes with over 350 kinds of different insects.

LAKE SKADAR has been formed by the dissolution of limestone in a tectonic basin during the Tertiary or Quarternary period. Skadar presents a crypto-depression, which means that parts of its lakebed are actually below sea level. There are around 30 such places called "oke" where submerged groundwater spouts up from the bottom. The deepest "oko" is Radus, which is at least 60m deep and results in rich local fishing grounds. Sixty percent of the lakes area is situated in Montenegro with the remainder in neighboring Albanian. The lake is the last remaining breeding habitat for pelicans in Europe as well as the single largest bird sanctuary in that continent. It is one of the last freshwater marshes in the Mediterranean as well as being the largest lake in the Balkans.

The Montenegrin element of the lake has been proclaimed national park, and by the Ramsar convention in 1996 Skadar Lake was included into the swamps world list as an important habitat with 270 bird species, many of them rare and endangered. Around 40 fish species are found in the lake and it is interesting that even some saltwater fish can be found here. While cruising along the lake, one is quickly impressed by its jagged coastline with many bays, islands and peninsulas projecting into it. The cultural and historical significance of the islands on Lake Skadar are considerable. Many monasteries, churches and sacral monuments are present here.

RIJEKA CRNOJEVICA

Further along the lake coast, there is a place known as an ancient metropolis and Montenegrin medieval state, Rijeka Crnojevica where the first book in Cyrillic script was printed. There are also some small restaurants on this island in which local fishermen tempt visitors with their delicious produce. There is nothing quite like the delicate taste of freshly netted carp while enjoying the unique scenery of the island and Lake Skadar.

KOTOR

Another fascinating place during your stay at Villa Perla is Kotor Bay (Boka Kotorska). It looks like the mountains have cracked and let the sea in. This is the southernmost fjord in Europe. The high mountains bend over the thin coastline thus protecting it from the severe climate from the north. That is why Boka is an oasis of Mediterranean vegetation: agave, palm, mimosa, oleander, kiwi, pomegranate, and medicinal herbs... When its peaks are covered with snow, the roses bloom at the foothill. There are a lot of remains of the old aristocratic palaces that now bear witness to the ancient splendor and richness. In one of them, the Bujevic’s palace, the Town Museum is located.
