‘MontAdria 2021’ Finally Takes Off in Montenegro
07.05.2021There’s a newly formed touristic event that’s taking off in Montenegro, and the first regatta officially started last week in Tivat, with three small seaplanes, one gyrocopter and two ‘Cessna 172’ type planes flying over Porto Montenegro.
An international event designed to promote hydro-aviation, sports and culture it’s a huge step forward not only for the local area but also for Montenegro in general as it seeks new ways of attracting a more diverse range of tourists to its shores, especially those who are looking for something other than just a ‘beach’ holiday.
Called ‘MontAdria 2021’ it’s rather fitting that an event such as this should be started just a few hundred metres away fr om the place wh ere Austro-Hungarian seaplanes first flew over Tivat just before the start of World War One, and to mark the prestigious occasion the Interior State Secretary of Montenegro and the Deputy Director of the Civil Aviation Agency in Montenegro were in attendance to watch the spectacle.
The area of Tivat especially already has a history of hydro-aviation thanks to both Austro-Hungary and the old Kingdom of Yugoslavia who once had bases nearby. Boris Ciglic (an Aviation historian and publicist) who was at the event also pointed out, ‘The use of seaplanes for military purposes in Boka was massive during the First World War and Second World War. They were also used later on (though to a lesser extent) both for Military and Civil purposes’.
The VP of Tivat Municipality, Goran Bozovic, stated that ‘We are glad that we can connect our rich cultural and historical heritage with modern trends in our tourism and economy. We want this Seaplane Regatta to become the new flywheel of our economy and to contribute to the diversification of our tourist offerings’.
As things slowly start to return to normal in Montenegro, after the effects of the Covid pandemic it’s great to see the launch of a new event, and one that will bring a much needed boost to the businesses that rely on tourism to stay open, such as hotels, restaurants, and sites of historical interest, and given the success of this first event, it’s more than likely to return next year bigger and better!
Participants of the event will fly routes around the Bay of Kotor and Sveti Stefan, including through Skadar Lake, Podgorica, Niksic, Zabljak, Kolasin and Berane, so wherever you decide to visit in Montenegro, you’ll get to enjoy some, if not all of the regatta.
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!

Good day! The first time we met professionally organised step by step work with property in the Southern country. It was a nice surprise for me and my spouse. Well-established algorithms helped us to understand country, its particular features, pluses and drawbacks. Professional manager (Petar Kuzmich) helped us to avoid mistaken choice and provided a really wide number of options to choose from. We felt and still do absolutely safe while buying a house. Happy to come across with your company! Will recommend to our neighboors and family friends in first Norway home.
