COUNTRY OF TALL DARK MEN AND MOUNTAINS
This mountainous country is notorious for its life at a slow pace and proud people. The Montenegrin men are known for their charms and height, with an estimate of 28 % of them rising over 1,90 m tall – 6,3 ” in inches if you prefer. Similar to its population, the country’s mountains stand tall and dark, thus justifying the name of Montenegro (the black mountain).
Upon arrival to its most famous destination, Kotor bay (often mistaken for a fjord), one feels overwhelmed by giant walls and rocks sheltering it for ages, it’s no wonder that UNESCO listed it as a site of outstanding universal value. But this is not all that Montenegro has to offer, there is also the spectacular view from the Lovćen mountain and the incredibly crafted mausoleum at its top, the Ostrog Monastery carved in a rock, where thousands of barren couples head every year praying to Saint Basil for children. The legends says that if a barren woman kisses St Basil’s testicle reliquary it will help her get pregnant. Many witnessed this and call it a miracle.
Although they have good weather all year round, Montenegro’s tourism still only thrives in July and August and there are many incentives to transform it into a luxury destination. They already have some luxury chains present, such as Aman Resort on a unique artificial peninsula of Sveti Stefan and the Regent in the biggest marina in Montenegro, in Tivat. On the other hand this destination offers many adventure options to enjoy in Robinson Crusoe style, such as team buildings in abandoned prisons and fortresses, jeep safari or rafting on Tara river.
