Pluzine – thanks to entrepreneurs that decided to take pioneer steps at affirmation of tourism at Piva that region will this year probably mark growth of tourist income that is always not in size in respect to natural potential of municipality of Pluzine.
“There were enough fleeing over Javorak. Pluzine inhabitants return to their native land and individual initiative returns Piva to tourist map of Montenegro” – says Rade Vukovic, owner of café – restaurant “Zvono”.
His guests after taking cool glass of mead from bottle, quince, apple, peach or famous plum brandy made by his father Rajko waits up to now not seen experience: a half an hour cruise over the lake to cave Otesa where is prepared fish soup, grilled trout and drink mead again from own brewing.
Land roast, Piva skorup (dairy dish) and cheese there are in all restaurants. Individuals and hunting society this summer offer drive over 50 kilometers long to top full accumulation lake from Pluzine to dam Mratinje, confluence of Komarnica, Pivsko oko or Stabana, where was this summer open new camping site. The lake every day attracts hundreds of swimmers, campers, fishermen. Younger gather around new beach bar at cay at Rosulje the only place for bathing and only that their mates from all over the world would not envy is the bottom of bottom of turbo folk they listen to. Authentic board waits tourists on the way to Durmitor in ethno cabin at Trsa as in motel in canyon of Susica while in restaurant at agriculture farm at Pisce under top Prutas they can at source buy famous products of sheep milk.
“We discovered something our own. People stop by highway and with delight watched this unseen miracle, now they have where to stop and to enjoy in beauty that was for centuries privilege of highlanders” – said Vukovic.
Mountain tops Maglic, Volujak, Bioc and Vitao (with over 2300 meters) canyons of Komarnica, Piva, Tara and Susica, glacier lakes Trnovacko and Stabanjska, monasteries Piva and Zagradje one of the highest dams in Europe (220 meters) under which flows eight kilometers long rest of the Piva River through canyon with which rarely can be measured any in the world are only part of beauty that God gave to Piva inhabitants.
Vukovic is as he admits, apart the story on all this beauty, forced to answer many questions from guests that are astounded with human negligence.
The fact that municipality of Pluzine with all this offer is not included in any catalogue of Ministry of tourism and Tourist organization says enough on negligence of tourist potentials of Piva where there is no local tourist organization that each municipality must have by law.
“I told to our guests as our children from primary school with project “Sustainable development of Piva” won Republic competition. I tell them as Pluzine had no value of National Park “Durmitor” although one third of park including Skrka, Prutas and Susica are in our municipality. Special talk are accommodation – catering company that should be basis of development” – stresses Vukovic.
The beach was not built even three decades after building of dam, and complete sewing system floats into lake in vicinity of the beach. Garbage is “legally” thrown down banks beside which is slaughter of agricultural farm. Luckily lake with capacity of around billion of cubic of water and depth of 80 to 200 meters absorb all that refutes and believe or not water is potable.
Come to Pluzine. Un seen nature, clean air and healthy food wait for you or as says Vukovic come to wonder the beauty that fight back to negligence.
