France’s most read newspaper Ouest France: Montenegro – a favorite small country on the Adriatic coast

The most widely read French regional newspaper “Ouest France” published an affirmative article about Montenegro, which describes the natural beauties and cultural sights of our country.

The National Tourist Organization of Montenegro hosted the journalist of this prestigious newspaper Yves Hardy, who conveyed positive impressions from Montenegro to the readers of this French newspaper.

As he points out, Montenegro, with only 630,000 inhabitants, offers a whole range of offers for quality vacations.

“The small country, a favorite on the Adriatic coast, has several natural gems such as the Bay of Kotor and Lake Skadar. Whether you come by boat from the Croatian city of Dubrovnik or from the mainland, the Bay of Kotor will undoubtedly give you a view of the most beautiful fjord in the southern Mediterranean “, the article reads.

During his stay in the destination, Hardy had the opportunity to visit the northern, central and southern regions. After visiting Kolašin, Biogradska gora National Park, Cetinje, he also visited tourist sites in the area of ​​Perast, Kotor, Budva and Bar. His tour of the coast included everything from the luxurious offer of Sveti Stefan, Luštica and Porto Montenegro to the peaceful fishing village of Bjelila.

“Those with a ‘deep pocket’ find their ‘hidden corner’ on the Sveti Stefan peninsula or anchor their luxury yachts in the Porto Montenegro marina. Those who still want something else, far from the jet set, decide to walk through the small fishing village of Bjelila, get to know the capital of Cetinje or visit one of the five national parks of incredible beauty “, the article reads.

He described Skadar Lake as a huge body of water surrounded by the most beautiful greenery, where pelicans are the hosts. He says that Bar can be recognized by the olive tree that is over 2,200 years old, as well as by the cobblestones and streets in the Old Town, while in the north stands out Kolašin and NP Biogradska gora with its wild nature.

In addition to cultural and historical sights and natural beauties, Hardy had the opportunity to enjoy the gastronomic offer of Montenegro. Before returning to his country, he visited the Šipčanik wine cellar, where he tasted Montenegrin wines of the company “13. July – Plantations ”.

Ouest France is the most widely read regional daily in France, with a circulation of around 700,000 a day. It is expected that this announcement will contribute to the promotion of Montenegro as a tourist destination on the French market. Local tourist organizations from Kolasin, Cetinje, Tivat, Kotor, Budva and Podgorica, hotels “Splendid Conference & Spa” and “Bianca Resort & Spa”, as well as companies “Lustica bay” and “Porto Montenegro” also gave their support in organizing the study visit of the French journalist.

“For us in the city administration, this beautiful tradition is very important, more and more important because the tourist potential of our Podgorica, only in recent years, it seems to me, is fully expressed. This would not be possible without you, the people who bring this idea to Podgorica, and who, slowly but surely, with your work, perseverance, ideas, creativity, transform this city from a passing station to summer or winter tourist centers, into something which is a tourist destination in itself “, Vuković emphasized and thanked his colleagues from companies whose contribution is also immeasurable, and expressed satisfaction that a number of them were awarded for the effort and work they invest, so that Podgorica is tidy and more beautiful by the day.

“It would not be possible without a very dedicated Tourist Organization, which I know has been with you every day during this difficult period,” the mayor said, recalling that the capital provided financial support of almost 4 million euros to tourism businessmen during pandemics of coronavirus, and that this saved many jobs and created the preconditions for the opening of new ones.

„Together as a team, like one big family, we succeeded to overcome the hardest period and today, to have a reason to feel optimistic and look towards to what is waiting for us during this year”, concluded Vuković.

Director of the Podgorica Tourist Organization Irena Rogošić congratulated all the winners and also expressed satisfaction with the existence of companies and teams, which contribute to the development of Podgorica as a quality tourist destination, despite the challenges facing the tourism segment.

“As you know, the manifestation” Choosing the best in tourism and hospitality “has traditionally been held for more than three decades, and since in 2020 unfortunately, we were not able to organize it for well-known reasons, this year the organizing committee for the awards had a difficult task, but in the end we still managed to choose those who stood out in some way with their work in the previous period. I hope that with this project we will continue to stimulate and encourage individuals and teams to develop their personal and professional skills and qualities, “said Rogošić, adding that thanks to the excellent cooperation between the Capital and caterers, Podgorica was visited by 85,000 tourists in the previous period and realized 170 thousand overnight stays.
