Kotor Winter Festival
19.03.2021If you happen to be travelling in Montenegro during mid to late February, then you must make a stop in the beautiful part of Kotor and experience the cultural highlight of the Winter Festival which is a traditional gathering, celebrating the Folk Spirit and Skills of the people in the region.
A unique event which usually lasts around 7 days, visitors can enjoy colourful displays, exquisite masks and costumes, a fabulous mix of music fr om our heritage and a mouth-watering array of cuisines most of which are synonymous with the area.
Absolutely no-one is left out of the festivities and organisers try to create different groups according to certain interests and creative flair, which are then individually responsible for different segments of the programme. The overall aim is to create a team spirit and a sense of collective identity, so no matter wh ere you are from, what you believe in or what you do, you feel a sense of unity & are welcomed with open arms, something which is quite prevalent in today’s society.
There’s a few things that you should look out for, firstly the two Masquerades, the Big Traditional one, and the one just for Children, secondly the street processions which are led by the Majorettes from the ‘Festa Association’ accompanied by a local band, and thirdly is the Carnival Costume Exhibition which takes place during the evening, at the Cultural Centre.
They generally start the Carnival with a traditional ‘Burning of the Festival’ which aims to get rid of all the negative energy from the previous year and start the next 12 months fresh & full of positivity, after which a famous singer from Montenegro or from one of the neighbouring countries is invited to perform at.
Traditionally it will end with a large carnival procession and an orchestral performance, followed by another concert, with plenty of dancing, eating and drinking!
Last year we decided to find a new home close to the sea. It was quite difficult in the beginning to make the right choice. Once we found CMM Company was a great luck! We immediately received detailed consultation on the country and purchase opportunities. Being attracted by Kotor - one of the most amazing parts of the coast, we decided to take a family trip and maybe make our dream of new home come true. As just discoverers of Montenegro, we were accepted like at home which was a one more pleasant surprise. The most important, we received all detailed information about country regions and procedure of buying property during the first few days. And how beautiful the car journeys were! Difficult choice, but when you find the home you want you can't refuse it. CMM did best to help us with this finding! All the purchase procedure passed well with CMM professional work! Now we are happy owners of a wonderful house with a Kotor bay view, being perfectly served by CMM Management company (of course, we've chosen CMM as professional house manager). Hope our friends and relatives would also move to Montenegro with the CMM help soon !!!

Dear CMM team, just to leave a small feedback on the superjob you've done ! It was not an easy period for us with a child. As we had to sell our home property and decided alternatively buy some nice house at Montenegrin coast. We were truly frightened at the start. My colleague, being your customer, gave a good recommendation, so, we called the office. All the part, covering seach and purchase in Montenegro, was quickly, safe and perfectly done. Good luck and further success and propsperity to the company! Special thanks to Alexander and Snezana for professional approach!

Always thought that buying property abroad isnervous and difficult task. CMM changed my mindset. I felt support and care in every step: from the first call arranged till receiving the Owner's list. I am also happy about how they make my apartment management. Now, whenever me or my family members come home to Montenegro, I am absolutely confident that my apartment is in the best condition!
