The prominent British newspaper The Guardian ranked Kolašin on the list of the top ten European small ski centers.
This British newspaper put Kolašin along with other ski resorts such as the Spanish Port Aine, Slovenian Kranjska Gora, Levi in Finland, Hania in Greece, Champex-Lac (Switzerland), Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany), Sierra Nevada (Spain), La Mongie (France) and Roccaraso (Italy).
The article explains that smaller resorts often offer benefits such as smaller prices, easier routes, less crowded slopes, great scenery, or unspoilt character. “From Spain to Greece, these less-obvious ski areas offer great value and a more local feel than the big, busy Alps resorts,” states the article.
“Kolašin in central Montenegro is the most underrated mountain resort in Europe. It is a small town surrounded by the Bjelasica and Sinjajevina mountains, which rise to above 2,000 metres. Skiing costs from €30 a day including lift pass, and there are also children’s slopes with instructors”, reports The Guardian.
The Guardian singled out the great-value Balkan cuisine, and recommends Kolašin for a winter holiday without queues and high prices.
Such recognition oblige Kolašin ski resort to complete their tourist offer and make maximum efforts to meet the expectations of foreign guests.
“We really appreciate the fact that Montenegro found its place in credible world magazines. That confirms our commitment to building new ski resorts in Kolašin and other municipalities in the north,” said Prime Minister of Montenegro Duško Marković as a comment on the country’s accomplishment.
