"Orthodox New Year" Republic of Montenegro Local Custom Tip by Prasnjavi

Republic of Montenegro Local Customs: 39 reviews and 36 photos


Our church, Serbian Orthodox Church, didn't accept the New calendar and we celebrate New Year on, hm, and yours 13/14th January by “yours” calendar. We call it “Serbian New Year”.
The central celebration party is always on the Republic Square with lot of popular musicians, trumpeters, fireworks, hot "Rakija" (home made plum brandy) and hot red wine...
A thousands of people are there doesn't meter which temperature is. Party is always good and you will feel just a heat.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
