A very long time ago, when the Venetians conquered the Balkans , and reached the coast of Montenegro, they encountered the surreal scenery of the Boka.
Just beyond the coast their gaze was halted by mountains that rose so massive and covered with shady woods.
They struck the newcomers as wild, dark and untamed so they named this land Montenegro, which means “Black Mountain”
Inhabited by Slovenian tribes for over 1500 years , Montenegro boasts a rich history of events.
