atural "akvamaris" with the smell of pine needles and mountain herbs - and absolutely free.Due to the fact that the beaches in Montenegro pebble (very fine gravel), water is filtered well and the sea is always clear, rich blue.Palm trees in Montenegro there - and a lot: they are all planted sailors who brought the germs of floats for the decoration of his country.

religion - Orthodoxy, first the Turks and then the Austro-Hungarian Empire tried to implant here a different faith, but nothing happened.Montenegrins for centuries resisted, including those with weapons in their hands, their conquerors.As a result of this small but proud country with a population of 450 thousand people and no one was subjected to another's faith did not accept.These Montenegrins famous great growth: the average height of 185 centimeters in men.
