Sutomore – In the competition for the most visited place on Montenegrin Riviera this summer Sutomore takes the title, and that, as local people say, is by far ahead of the others. How to describe the live river of people more powerful then the Amazone in the mouth of the Atlantic ocean, which from the 1st fo July is slowing down the street of Ivo Novakovic in both directions.
Main street is a story for itself: newly built round about through Maljevik doesn’t help much to the transit which goes through Sutomore, for which in the rush hour you need 45 minutes, so guests from abroad who wish to visit some of the famous concerts on Bar marina, often turn their cars back home after helpless waiting to reach the exit from Sutomore. The solution of this problem is the already announced 16 km long round about from the tunnel Sozina to Mrkovsko field which will mainly ease the traffic on the road Sutomore – Bat. Hotelier for a long time have been pointing out that all accommodation capacities in Sutomore and in Canj have been overbooked, and this season is about to break the record from 1988 year if already it hasn’t surpassed it by the number of guests. And no one dares to state the number, not even approximately – by all means we are speaking about dozens of thousands! In the hotel Korali there are 950 Russians, Czechs and Slovaks, in bungalows of the hotel Inex – Zlatna obala on the very shore of Ratac, in the middle of a unique coastal airy spa in pinewoods – there are 800 guests. From the field the records show that a bed in private accommodation above the railroad in Sutomore is now 14 euros, while last year it was 4, and because of the tide of guests from Serbia and BiH and even from Slovenia recently, the houses on the hill are full too!
On the famous Sutomore promenade, just like on the beach below it, the laws of physics lose their sense. There is no formula which can calculate the “season density of the substance”, that is how many people can fit on a square meter of a beach/road, like in Sutomore!
This summer water is a problem here, as well as electricity: it doesn’t matter, the tourists say who restlessly and in the hottest sun suffer all what can happen on this territory just to get a part of the sand on the most frequent sandy beach, 1.300 meters long.
There, on the beach, below the promenade, when a towel is spread or when an easy chair is taken – all worries, which one had in the arrival, disappear and the fun begins! And day-by-day that is the same situation, with the same intensity… A season to remember!
