BREAKS COOKING : MONTENEGRO
. . . a stunning location to enjoy
a cooking holiday
is a magnificent combination of contrasts â€“ sea, bays, mountains,
rivers, lakes, canyonsâ€¦ Its diversity is breathtaking. Just
imagine skiing on the snow-capped peaks, and then, the same
day, getting down to the shore and diving into the crystal
clear blue waters of the Adriatic. This alone makes Montenegro
one of the most attractive destinations in the heart of Europe.
Whether you are looking for refuge from the hectic pace of
the worldâ€™s big cities, the stress of modern life, or an
active holiday with the touch of adrenaline â€“ Montenegro
will surely be your memorable adventure.
Montenegro is also one of the oldest European countries,
with a population of around 670,000. Its contribution to world
cultural heritage is remarkable. Centuries marked history
of this country made it one of the brightest examples of defiant
and heroic struggle for freedom. Due to this fact, it is also
a huge mosaic of broad impact â€“ Christian, Muslim, Illyrian,
Byzantine, Venetian, Turkish and Slavic civilization and spirit.
Its history, culture, architecture, art and a specific kind
of â€śmodus vivendiâ€ť were formed, thanks to this, in a fascinating
and harmonious whole.
There is a tradition in which, Montenegro, owes its name
to sailors, to who, sailing ashore from the open sea, it seemed
cragged and dark, because immediately above the warm shores
rose dark mountains. Some say that its enemies had given it
this name because of bad luck that would strike anyone who
would try to conquer it. The truth is, however, that Montenegro
owes its name to those who founded it â€“ the CrnojeviÄ‡ dynasty.
They, along with the Petrovic dynasty, became the founders
of a modern, small, but proud country of the Mediterranean.
. . . and what a fascinating place for a cooking holiday!
