After a few weeks of rain, we took advantage of the first sunny day in January to make a trip to the medieval fortified town of Žabljak Crnojevića, once capital of the Crnojević dynasty. This beautiful place is situated on a hill near Skadar Lake, at a distance of only 15 km (a 20 minutes drive) from Podgorica.

Given that Montenegro’s very name is a clue to its stunning, mountainous interior, it’s perhaps surprising that the country remains little known as a winter sports destination – yet the skiing here is world-class.

Exceptional snowfall, stunning pistes and charming boutique accommodation all await you in the Bjelasica mountain range, north of the capital Podgorica.

The most beautiful time of the day to visit Perast is around sunset. During the tourist season, when all resorts on the Montenegrin Coast are overcrowded, you can be sure that the atmosphere in Perast is relaxed and peaceful. It has really been a good idea to close the promenade for traffic. You can park your car at both ends of the town and hire a bike, if you don’t want to walk.

It has been my wish to explore the mountain plateau of Sinjajevina for a long time, but I knew that it would not be easy to realize such an idea, as you need a 4×4 to discover this huge mountain expanse in the heart of Montenegro. But one of these days we were invited by friends to visit Krnja Jela, a village with around one hundred inhabitants on the western side of the plateau.

Have you ever heard about Mount Siljevica? It is situated in the region of Katunska nahija, between Zagarač and Bandići (Komani), at a distance of around 20 km from Podgorica. We expected it to be a nice place for a walking tour, as we desperately needed some fresh air after several days of hard work.

This summer I read in the newspapers that the Montenegrin Railway Company (Željeznica Crne Gore) had purchased three modern trains in Spain and that they would be used on the line from Podgorica to Nikšić.  This railway, completed with 760 mm gauge in 1948, was upgraded to standard gauge in 1965.

The former Yugoslavia is dotted with monuments that were built in Tito’s spirit. So is Montenegro. Many friends and relatives from the Netherlands have asked me about the meaning of numerous concrete ‘forks’, ‘wings’, ‘stars’ or social-realistic sculptures they have seen. Can you believe that there are 1,700 war memorials, monuments and memorial plaques in Montenegro?

Winter has arrived in Montenegro, but only eleven days ago we spent a beautiful day on the island of Ada Bojana. It was warm and sunny with a temperature of 22 degrees Centigrade. No tourists, no traffic, no noise. Some people were fishing and others were taking a walk along the endless beach. So did we… enjoying the silence and the untouched nature.

Traveling from Podgorica (or Nikšić) to the Bay of Kotor has become much easier by the new highway Žabljak-Risan. The road has been under construction for a long time, but now it is an excellent highway passing through untouched nature, crossing the Grahovo plain (Grahovsko polje) and winding down towards the Bay of Boka Kotorska, offering breath-taking views of the Bay.

Last weekend the weather was sunny and we thought it a good idea to make a walking tour to the village of Poseljani. With its authentic architecture, stone mills and arched bridges, this village is a secret treasure in the central part of Montenegro. It is situated in the hidden, narrow valley of the Seljani stream that goes down to Lake Skadar.
