The literature of the less numerous people of the former Yugoslavia, the Montenegrin one, which from its beginnings had a discontinuous and rather specific historical development, reached a radical turning point in the 1990s when, faced with the threat of becoming unrecognizable in the from the nearby Serbian cultural area, Montenegrin intellectuals have clearly defined their cultural identity by referring critically to both their past and modernity. On the somewhat indented literary map since the beginning of the new millennium, both some of the writers of the older generation (Sreten Asanović, n.1931, Novak Kilibarda, n.1934, Jevrem Brković, n.1933) and those in between have written poetry and prose.

Among the most widely read are the narrators Ognjen Spahić (b. 1977), the author of the award-winning novel Hansenova djeca, (2004; trans. It. The sons of Hansen, 2012), Andrej Nikolaidis (b. 1974), the most prolific (Mimezis, 2003, Mimesis; Sin, 2006, trans. it. In the name of the son, 2014; Dolazak, 2009, Arrival; Devet, 2014, Il Nove), Dragan Radulović (b. 1969) with Aušvic kafe (2003, Caffè Auschwitz), Balša Brković (b.1966) with Privatna galerija (2002, The private gallery), Vladimir Vojinović (b.1978) with Portret Igora Đukića (2005, Portrait of Igor Đukić), Milovan Radojević (b.1960) with a novel set in the Middle Ages Dominik (2001), Milorad Popović (b.1957), essayist and poet, with his first novel Karnera (2012, Carnera) ; the poets Aleksandar Bečanović (b.1971), Pavle Goranović (b.1973) and Danilo Lompar (b.1978) and the poetesses Jovanka Uljarević (b.1979) and Dragana Tripković (b.1984).

According to Countryaah, the capital of Montenegro is Podgorica.
There are many beautiful Mediterranean beaches in Europe. Unfortunately, you often do not find them so lonely, but they are visited by many people and sometimes very overcrowded. Montenegro, where tourism is only just recovering from the conflicts of the last decades, is a kind of insider tip. With crystal clear water, soft white sand and mountains in the background, Montenegro has beaches straight out of a picture book.

Skiing in Montenegro
The special thing about Montenegro is, among other things, the diverse landscape. As diverse as the landscapes are the activities that the respective surroundings offer. On the coasts, people of Montenegro can go to the beach after work and lay in the warm sun.
In the high mountains, on the other hand, you can also go skiing. Montenegro has two large ski areas, these are called Zabljak and Kolasin. From January to March, ski races take place mainly in Zabljak. Both areas are not yet very well known to tourists, but they are all the more used by the locals. Which hobbies a Montenegrin likes to pursue in his spare time also depends on where he lives.
The forests of Montenegro are unique and some of them are still real primeval forests. The government became aware of this treasure early on and since 1991 Montenegro has been the first declared environmental state in the world.
Anyone who looks at the mountains and forests knows immediately that they are worth all protection. Hollywood has also been attracted to beautiful Montenegro. For example, a large part of the James Bond film “Casino Royale” was shot in Montenegro.
Montenegro is home to many sacred buildings. These are structures that were built to carry out religious or cultic customs such as church services or offerings. Many relics, paintings and statues can still be found in churches and mosques. Famous examples are the Cathedral of St. Tryphon of Kotor and the Moraca Monastery.
