During the mentioned bus trip almost the whole country around, we saw several places where I dream to come again. If you’ve never been to Montenegro, you should undoubtedly visit any place in the Tara river canyon… …including but not only the Durdevica bridge, Biogradska Gora and Durmitor national parks, and, of course, the Kotor sea bay. What personally I liked the most? I think the Crno Ezero (means the Black Lake), a glacier lake on the altitude of more than 1400 meters above the sea level. There’s a gorgeous silence. I don’t mean a complete absence of sounds of course. I talk about nature’s silence: the sounds of the wind, lake waves, and the seldom cry of birds. I’m not a real new dish lover, therefore, I don’t usually taste anything that never tried. But I strongly recommend you to take the dish called Jagnjetina ispod sača (means “the lamb from the big cauldron”). If you have ever heard about the meat that melts in the tongue, this is the exact case! You won’t regret! To conclude, a couple of words about the sea. It’s wonderful! Not as salty as the Mediterranean but very clean and warm. As a photographer, I also liked its color. Well, as said in the heading, that was a contradictory vacation from which I understood two things for the future: never buy a bus trip again and don’t try to combine the photo trip with the sea holidays.

When in 2011, I and my wife came back home from our first abroad vacation in Croatia, we faced with our different friends’ multiple late advice: “You definitely should have to visit Montenegro!” In response, we both just kept silent because didn’t have anything to say. That was our very first abroad trip and we couldn’t compare it to anything! (Back to that Croatia vacation, I can say that we still recall it as one of the best adventures in our life so far). So, this time, in autumn 2019, we eventually decided to go to well-advertised Montenegro. And what have we liked there? To be honest, just three things: nature, sea (but not beaches!), and national cuisine. From all the places in the World we have visited by now, I would place Montenegro somewhere in between Croatia and Turkey. What do I mean? Croatia is one of the cleanest countries I’ve ever seen! I like Croatian’s attitude to their land, and especially its nature so very much! It’s very close to mine. Moreover, I think many nations should take an example from Croatians, and most of all it concerns Russians. Perhaps, that’s one of the sides which I didn’t like in Montenegro: they smoke almost everybody at any place including beaches, and cigarette buts are wallowing everywhere around. On one hand, the sea in Montenegro is clean and beautiful. On the other hand, in Kotor town, for instance, we couldn’t find a single working shower. A view from the mountain above Kotor sea bay is simply amazing but the entrance to the mountain is paid (only cash by the way!) and no single light on steps of the long stairs at all (that’s just wonderful during the night-time descending)! While the bus trip we purchased, we saw lots of amazingly beautiful places. But the stops they allowed us were too short. In the Tara river canyon, for example, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen, we had five minutes to stop. I’m not kidding. Five minutes! I timed because we were told we have 15 minutes… Trifles but unpleasant. Well, I’m fed up talking about the cons! Let’s better about the good. To be continued… P.S.: Follow me on Instagram –...
