Montenegro offers holiday for the rich
BBC has recently published another text about Montenegro which speaks about the “comeback of Montenegrin coast” saying that “the coastline is yet again the driving force behind the country's rapidly increasing tourist numbers. One of the smallest countries in Europe, Montenegro's lure has long been its 295km of coastline, home to quiet fishing villages, flashy resort towns, UNESCO-recognized fjordscapes and the remains of grand Venetian fortresses”, it is stated in the article.
BBC reveals to its readers that the Montenegrin coast first came to international attention between 1945 and 1992, when the country was part of socialist Yugoslavia. Famous film stars such as Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren, and royalty such as Princess Margaret flocked to the country's stunning shoreline. The coastline is yet again the driving force behind the country's rapidly increasing tourist numbers. They also write about Budva as a “summer party town” but also about a more affordable visit to Prčanj.
But while Budva has pockets of affordability, according to BBC, other towns along the coast “have moved firmly into the realm of luxury travel” and they mention Sveti Stefan in that light. They find that the most ambitious tourism moves can be seen in Porto Montenegro, while Boka Bay is one of the country's undeniable highlights in Montenegro.
“A natural harbour ringed by the towering, black-rocked heights that help give the country its name. As the Montenegrin coastline sweeps down towards the Albanian border, the land becomes flatter and the coastline has fewer of the coves and bays that lie further north”, the BBC reporters say in the rest of the article also mentioning that for now as the country’s northern resorts eye an increasingly well-heeled set, Ulcinj remains an island of affordability .
