Budva – Judging by the stars which will be performing in Budva during the New Year’s holidays, the metropolis of tourism will this year too, not just in Montenegro but even wider, be the main place of fun and good time in the craziest night of all.
The Municipality Budva in cooperation with the Tourist organization will this year too, traditionally, organize the welcoming of the New Year at the main town square in front of the bulwarks of the Old town, and the breaking news for sure is that the star of the night on the 31st of December will be the greatest Bosnian star Dino Merlin.
Merlin, to whom this will be the first public performance on the territory of the former SFRJ, after the war events, has made a decision that Budva should be the town in which he will have a concert and by that end the speculations about his alleged “boycott” of these territories.
It is familiar that numerous Belgrade managers have persistently tried to persuade Merlin, to appear, if not in the Serbia capital, then in some other town of the former SCG, which he constantly refused to do. By bringing Merlin, Budva has continued the unwritten “tradition” to welcome the greatest stars from these areas, and by that to always be in the center of media events.
In 2000 year when the organizing of the welcoming of the New Year in the open started, in Budva we had Zdravko Colic, Gipsy Kings, Severina and Serbian folk diva Svetlana – Ceca Raznatovic. As it was confirmed to “Vijesti” in the Organizational board, the arrival of Dino Merlin is certain, and the signing of the contract is due to happen, and almost the entire New Year program, which is consisted of two nights this year, is outlined.
The main manager of the Municipality, Aleksandar Ticic, confirmed that the Municipality in the cooperation with the TO will be the patron of this year’s welcoming of the New Year in the open, and that the local administration has singled out 50.000 euros.
– The Municipality has separated 50.000 euros, and the rest of the money will be provided by the TO, which is the carrier of the entire program, as well as by the public enterprises and Budva’s businessman. We are sure that this year too Budva will have the best program of the welcoming of the New Year in the open – pointed out Ticic. As we have found out Budva’s audience on the second night, on the 1st of January will be entertained at the square by the Croatian famous pop group “Colonia”, and during the two days program on the big stage in front of the Old town several Montenegrin performers will also participate such as: Andrijana Bozovic, Stevan Faddy and others.
Not just on the central square, but almost all hotel keepers have already outlined the New Year’s program, and the list of the stars who will entertain the guests is not less attractive. The most exclusive hotel in the Adriatic, “Splendid” in Becici, will organize a three day program, and the innovation on this territory is the TV broadcast of the craziest night for which TV Company IN from Podgorica is in charge of. According to the words of the manager of the company “Montenegro stars group”. Caslav Perosevic, this is the first time in Montenegro that from some hotel the welcoming of the New Year will be broadcasted.
– The happenings in the hotel will be stationed at several locations, and in the craziest night we will have the onset of Knez with his bend, then the onset of Sukrija Zuti Serhatlic with his ensemble “Podgorica”, Stefan Filipovic, music clapper “Stari kapetan” (THE OLD CAPTAIN), and the special guest will be Rambo Amadeus. Except the mentioned stars, the star of the 1st and 2nd January will be the famous Croatian pop singer Goran Karan, so we are hoping that with this type of choice of performers we have satisfied all the tastes – said Perovic.
The greatest hotel enterprise “Budva Riviera” will also organize the welcoming of New Year in Petrovac’s hotel “Palas”. According to the words of the propaganda director Mara Milos, that hotel will organize the welcoming of the New Year for the first time, and already all the contracts with the guests in the entertaining program are made.
– Our goal was to satisfy all the tastes, so on the 31st of December and on the 1st of January the stars of the night will be Marija Serifovic and Merima Njegomir who will be followed by the famous Belgrade orchestra of Misa Mijatovic. Nela and Ivana Popovic will also take part in the program while the leader of the program will be the famous TV face of Pink TV – Bosko Jakovljevic. As a special, exclusive night we are preparing the 2nd January, which will be the traditional night of Pastrovici, with the specialties characteristic for this area. In the entertaining program, for sure one of the greatest stars of pop music on the territory of the former Yugoslavia – Meri Cetinic will have her onset – said Milos.
In the elite hotel “The Queen of Montenegro” in Becici, there will be organized a welcoming of New year too, and according to the words of the director of the company “Springer & Plecer Montenegro”, Dragan – Purko Ivanovic, they have decided to have a “mega fun instead of mega stars”.
– Our slogan is “New Year for all generations”. We are preparing six different programs for everyone’s taste, from tambour players, music clapper groups, traditional music as well as pop and rock music. So we are having a great fun, which will be happening on three levels from the restaurant to the tavern, for everyone’s and for everyone’s pocket. The New Year’s night will be broadcasted from the hotel by the TV Montena from Podgorica, and the host of the program will be Marko Novakovic. As every year the New Year’s holidays will be celebrated also in “Maestral” which traditionally organizes great entertainment. Having in mind that the Italian guests are the majority of those who wish to spend the craziest night in this luxurious hotel, the company “HIT Montenegro” has engaged in the entertaining program the famous Italian pop singer Franco Simone, and for the domestic guests the arrival of the new “Magazin” will be very interesting.
ONOGOST IS BRINGING GOCA TRZAN
HTE “Onogost” this year in its two hotels – Niksic “Onogost” and “Teuta” in Risan, has prepared a glamorous program during the New Year’s holidays, and according to the words of the executive director Lav Lajovic as a surprise for all those who like good parties, there is ski center “Vucije” where the crazy party will be guaranteed.
– We have outlined the program in such a way that the singers that we have engaged will be performing in both hotels and will literally be on the relation Risan – Niksic. The stars of the night will be the famous Belgrade pop singer Goca Trzan and her colleague Ksenija Mijatovic.
Except the really good menu, which we are specially preparing for the New Year, and very favorable prices, for all those who decide to spend their New Year’s holidays in some of our hotels we have a surprise guest. On “Vucje” we are organizing a great party, and for the entertainment the band “Crveno i Crno” (RED AND BLACK) will be in charge.
