There no longer are situations as it happened earlier that big groups are guided by foeign tourist guides. Each guide has to have the license of Ministry of tourism in order to be able to perform that activity. In other towns we haven`t found irregularities relted with the guides. Ministry has defined 30 tourist localities on which there have o be organized guidining services exclusively with the license of the ministry in charge – said Vucekovic.
