Your tour to this Balkan country can be active, informative and short, or it may have a more relaxed “country format” more familiar to our compatriots.
Montenegrins are a few southern Slavic people, Orthodox and very colorful.
Montenegro has long-standing historical, religious and cultural ties with Russia, and the attitude towards the Russians (and they are considered to be all immigrants from the countries of the former USSR) is traditionally friendly.
The hospitality and hospitality of local residents plus visa-free entry, two international airports have turned this small country into a stronghold of Russian tourism in the Balkans. Not only traditional holidays on the coast, but also buying and renting real estate for the summer season are very popular among Russians.
It is customary to relax in Montenegro in small towns and villages on the Adriatic coastline, the resort service is very well developed here. However, Montenegro should not be considered a purely resort country: for tourists who are tired of the “seal” reclining on the beach, there is always something to do and what to see.
Montenegrins managed to defend their independence, religion and national identity during the centuries-old struggle with various invaders, and this was reflected in the monuments of history, culture and art.

In conclusion, you need to deal with a little confusion with the capitals of Montenegro. As follows from the country’s constitution, the city of Cetinje is the official capital. The city has historically been the center of Montenegrin statehood and the Orthodox faith, the residence of the Montenegrin kings was also located in Cetinje. However, in 1946, the capital was moved to Podgorica, then renamed Titograd, in honor of the then communist leader of Yugoslavia, Josip Broz Tito. In 2006, after Montenegro gained independence, Cetina again received the title of capital, but the bulk of state institutions remained in Podgorica. Therefore, both cities are considered capitals: Cetinje – official and cultural, Podgorica – political and business.
