This article is dedicated to those who love the sun, the warm sea, mountains and new impressions, those who are already thinking about where to spend summer vacation.
Starting a raskaz about Montenegro (Montenegro), it is necessary to dispel the myth that this Yugoslav Republic survived the war. In the Balkan crisis, Montenegro did not take any participation, and military actions bypassed her. Nevertheless, the political and economic blockade of Yugoslavia literally paralyzed Montenegro, deprived it almost the only source of income – tourism. Even knowledgeable tourists were not able to get into Montenegro due to transport blockade. The country was cut off from the rest of the world. Travelers from St. Petersburg and from all over the Northwest will be among the first, who will be able to relax at the best Adriatic coast. From June 7, Yugoslav airline "Jat" Opens regular direct flights Peterburg – Belgrade – Podgorica (Capital Montenegro).
At the end of March in Montenegro on the initiative of the Yugoslav company "R-Tours" and "WAO Intourist St. Petersburg" A large group of heads of tourist agencies of the North-West, Moscow and other regions of Russia visited. They were convinced of the fact that the entire tourist infrastructure on the coast was well preserved. Only a cosmetic repair is required, which, by the way, is already underway and by the beginning of the summer season will be completed. In excellent condition there are sea and beaches. Back in 1991, Montenegro was proclaimed a country of clean, untouched and protected nature. According to the evil irony of fate, during the economic and tourist insulation, this environmental program was performed by itself.

The path from Podgorica to the city of Baru runs through the mountains and a large olive grove, numbering about 600 thousand trees, the oldest of which is more than 2,000 years. Despite their age, the tree is still fruit. Fans of antiquities will find in the bar well preserved ruins of castles and fortresses (9th century). A new city is located on the shores of the most beautiful bay with good beaches and crystal clear water. Curious for us details: between the bar and the Italian city of Bari runs the ferry.

In the summer, the whole Budva turns into an open-air theater. Free locomotive delivers tourists to Becici, a modern resort, back in 1936, a grand graduate in Paris for the best beaches in Europe.
