One of the perls of Boka Kotorska Bay

A wonderful city in the begining of Boka Kotorska bay.
One of the youngest towns on the Adriatic coast, was originally called St. Stefan. The city was established in the Dracevica parish by the Bay of Topla in 1382 by the Bosnian king Tvrtko I Kotromanovic.

Aleksa Santic

...one of the greatest Serbian poets ever lived.

He wrote about Montenegro and Herceg Novi (Night in Boka Bay):

Noc u Boki

Herceg-Novi cuti... Tek s Tvrtkova grada
Iz brsljana svelog, pun bola i jada,
Sveti glasak zvoni...
Da l' to dobri andj'o nad mogilom nada
Blage suze roni?
Il' ranjeno tice u tu nojcu crnu
Sa pocinka svoga sa cijukom prhnu?
Ne, ja znadem glasak sto se bolom krece:
To lovcenska vila na ruine slece
Pa ih suzom kvasi.
Za zlatnijem dobom, što se vratit neæe,
Zlatne trga vlasi
I cjeliva brsljan - cigli vijenac sveo,
Na razvali kralja sto se tuzan spleo.


Thi is a unique tribute to the genious of Serbian poet and bishop and rueler of Montenegro Petar II Petrovic Njegos.

    Hi Pedja, thanks for the birthday greeting! Great Herceg-Novi page and yes, those prices of DVDs were very good (brought some home myself!). I finally have all my Montenegro pages up from last summer.
