A rustic the dimensions of a stamp (Postcard)

Like all very younger nation, Montenegro (separated from Serbia following the referendum of 21 Might 2006) may be very pleased with its historic previous. I will not summarize it right here, I am going to simply say that the guides compete in stringing collectively illustrious names and years of basis (of dynasties, spiritual or cultural settlements, fortresses and cities which can be extra historical) – who can keep in mind all of them ?!…

Lovcen mountain, Montenegro

Coated in a proportion of 80% by mountains, the nation unfold over an space of ​​13,812 km.p. actually lives at top – peaks of over 1000 meters rise right here and there, some defiantly exceed 2000 meters, corresponding to Bobotov Kuk peak within the Durmitor Mountains (2522 meters). In these circumstances, it’s not stunning that Petar II Petrović-Njegoš (1813 – 1851), the political and non secular chief – as a result of along with the place of ruler (Vladika), he additionally fulfills that of the metropolitan of Montenegro (1830 – 1851) -, but in addition a poet & thinker of Renaissance scope, himself a tall man (2.10 m), he allowed himself to be buried no extra a lot no much less on the highest of Mount Lovcen (1749 m), the place a luxurious mausoleum now stands. The actual fact itself wouldn’t have impressed me – in any case, the Egyptian pyramids are additionally a sort of mountains, solely the pharaohs are deposited inside them, not on the peaks -, if the identical Petar II didn’t specify that he leaves the opposite peak, with 12 meters taller than Lovcen, to a fitter man like him, when he’ll seem. Irony of destiny, right now the nationwide tv retransmission antenna rises on that hill, and on the TV exhibits you realize what sort of individuals seem…

On the Mausoleum of Petar II Petrović-Njegoš (1813 – 1851)

Descending from the mausoleum of Petar II in direction of his dwelling village, Njegos, after which in direction of Boca Kotor, the street stored winding, the serpentines forming a sort of wrinkles (of magnificence!) on the face of the mountain, unattainable to catch in these strains that don’t I can solely categorical my unconditional admiration for a nation and a land that has by no means bowed its head to anybody.
