For citizens of CIS
In Montenegro, it is difficult to feel like a foreigner: the local language is similar to Russian and more Ukrainian, and a pair of stacks of local plum vodka quickly erases language barriers. A cursory look at the local landscapes will give associations with Crimea, Croatia and Turkey. But a meticulous tourist, once in Montenegro, will understand that another such country on the world map can not be found. A mix of black rocks, cypress groves, turquoise waters of the Adriatic sea, mountain villages and ancient buildings in the Venetian style magnet attracts those who like to sunbathe on the background of the luxurious mountains and drink young wine with a view of the most winding fjord of the Mediterranean — the Bay of Kotor.

In addition to the clear sea (the bottom of some places can be seen up to 50-meter depth) and good beaches, in this country there is a lot of natural and historical attractions that are not seen which is equivalent to spit in the direction of the Eiffel tower in Paris.

The main version of the origin of the word “Montenegro” is the most popular. It is believed that the name of the country was due to the picturesque local mountains, which are covered with such dense and impassable forests that seem black from afar. However, there is another, no less cheerful option: they say, once on the territory of Slavic Europe came southern tribes — dark, brown-eyed and dark-haired. They mixed with the indigenous population and formed a new nation — the “black Slavs”.
