Zabljak – The dreary tourist first half of February on Durnitor which was marked by weak fullness of hotel capacities, a small number of lovers of winter sports on ski paths and unsatisfactory weather conditions should be forgotten. That will be contributed by the last weekend, which according to what we have seen on our greatest ski path for this time of the year was good.
Yesterday on Savin kuk there were around 500 guests. We find out that that was the case in Saturday too, and the fact that the hotels had barely 100 guests tells us that those are weekend guests or those guests who are staying in weekend houses or private accommodation. On a parking lot there were several dozens of vehicles with the plates from all towns of Montenegro, as well as from Belgrade, Novi Sad, Krusevac, Uzice and fro Bosnia and Herzegovina.
There were also some daily tourists, like people from Pljevlja, and Niksic, but there were also people from Prijepolje. One of them was Taida Hasinbegovic who “came for several hours with his family by the road which has a lot of bumping holes which are jeopardizing the traffic”.
– The kids skied, and my husband and me didn’t – said Taida, who was satisfied with what se experienced, with a reprimand that it is necessary to put more hotels and restaurants along the path.
The journalist of the Belgrade “Studio B”, Nenad Spasojevic, who is impressed with the beauties of Durmitor and who went with the funicular railway to Savin kuk thinks that the ski center lacks trade shops in which people can by daily press, cosmetics and cigarettes.
– The first impressions are that beside the impressive beauty the service on the path is very good as well as the pie, which is served at “Montana”. The prices are significantly lower than those in Belgrade, but the waiters are a bit slow – said Nenad who minds that the terrace of the café “Oro” doesn’t not have the woofers so that people outside can listen to good music too.
As only the mountain can arrange that, the sun was yesterday suddenly replaced by the snow, which forced those sitting on the terrace to fill this new, but obviously very popular café. Young guests made a good atmosphere, the one, which is suitable for their age. Girl from Podgorica Ivona Urovic was a head of all of them who says that this year she is only coming for the weekends because she is studying and working, but last winter she was on Durmitor for two months.
– This is the most beautiful mountain, in whose wilderness I am in love with. Here are the best and craziest drives on skiis and the best people in the world – said Ivona, announcing her arrival for every following weekend.
Girl from Belgrade, Danica Mijovic is using the ski weekend in the area where she was born and from where her parents are. She is accommodated in the weekend house of her parent and says that the fact that Belgrade is 400 km away is not a problem for her to come for the weekend.
– Many people don’t know that in the surrounding this is the only place, which has enough snow. In Belgrade no one is officially promoting winter holiday on Durmitor. Imagine the absurd, Montenegrin tourist institutions, these days, are advertising in Belgrade winter holidays at the seaside –said Danica with “farewell to the next weekend”.
