Zabljak – Durmitor this summer lived real tourist boom, justifying name of tourist capital of continental part of Montenegro and through various tourist estimation reminded to the best tourist days of twenty years ago.
We repeat statement of tourist workers on before season that is much better than previous ones, much more visited June and July and first twenty days of August when number of people at Zabljak is at least tripled. Until this summer, even in the best years Transfiguration (August 19) really “turned” this place from tourist good visited center into monotonous provincial town, where would stay smaller groups of guests, mainly individuals while larger attraction would be student excursions.
His Transfiguration it is not so and nobody thinks on making balance for this confirms large interest and numerous reservations. Reason for this are also prices, lower on average for 20% than in top season. Of course also “nice voice” that spread all over the world on these beauties and Durmitor people, more and more hospitable and dedicated to tourism.
That the Tara and Durmitor this summer visited guests from all over the world confirms president of Association of rafters “Triftar” Goran Lakovic, a man who has a million rows down The Tear of Europe. I am satisfied with his part of season and my estimation share other organizers of rafting. Business will continue and will last until end of October and perhaps even longer for there are large number of agreed arrangements, like program with Israelites. All tourist customers with who I accompanied, experience the Tara and Durmitor as valuable natural phenomenon to which they will come over again. Recent rafting of mountaineers from Rijeka was finished that they “traveled all world, but receipt as at Zabljak they found nowhere”.
Mountaineers from Istria state that the Tara is unrepeatable adventure – says Lekovic and states remarks of guests of quality of roads to Zabljak. Neither lovers of climbing had this summer remarks to receipt of hosts and at their disposal were six guides who were lead by experienced B.A. of sports Zoran Vojinovic, all of them were trained for job of a guide also through project realized by USAID.
There is enough job for all of us and customers are mountaineers that arrive by themselves or by tourist agency “Sveti Djordje”, from Zabljak and “Luminalis” from Kotor. Tourists are saitisfied with our services and stay atZabljak and especially with nature of his region that is more important than quality of accommodation. Their interests are wide from ethno culture, ecology, flora and fauna to customs and meaning of certain names of places. During long hours climbs, very often in pauses we made mini courses of mountain living or simulating surviving in mountain and orientation in case of storm what they were glad to participate – said Vojinovic and added that it is created need that NP “Durmitor” and Mountain association lodge mountain boxes with fixed seals and books of visits at Durmitor tops where mountaineers would “authorize” their climb in their books and wrote down into book and Zabljak tourism would gathered precise details.
Vandals destroy ornaments
Global worming of planet and vandal acting of individuals brought to destruction of ice ornaments in Ledena pecina.
Stalactites and stalagmites of ice are lot less than previous year. It is sad to take look at these ornaments of much smaller size or broken. That is why we appeal to all who enter this marvelous place of important tourist destination of Durmitor and Montenegro. To protect this ice jewels and problem of melting requests organized scientific discussions that will help saving this wealth that tourists are eager to visit – says Zoran Vojinovic and adds that out of this fact there is shadow to the fact that there is much less garbage in the mountain than last years.
