Montenegro Moves to Protect More of It’s Stunning Landscape
03.08.2021An important habitat which has the IBA status (Important Bird Area) and which is home to around 250 species, including Flamingos, is to be saved by the Government in a brand new move which will further protect the area, it’s species and the biodiversity it offers.
The Salt Lakes in the Coastal Town of Ulcinj, once belonged to the salt company Bajo Sekulic, but after Bankruptcy in 2012, it lay ‘abandoned’ and stopped providing the necessary water & food that the bird population needed to survive.
After a bid by a local development company to turn the area into a sprawling touristic development was rejected, after an intervention by both European governments and Environmental organizations, there was a one year contract in 2015 which obliged the government to protect the area. Following on from that the area was declared a National Park in 2019, and as of last week it’s now been agreed that Land with a total area of 14.5 square kilometres will be permanently under the Government’s control.
Montenegro has many areas of Natural Beauty, and although they have ambitious plans to increase tourism through development & investments in infrastructure, it’s wonderful to see that they continue to invest in their surroundings, such as the Salt Lakes. Not only is this area of Ulcinj on the Rasmar List (A wetland of International Importance) but The European Commission also praised the development during their recent talks in 2020 regarding climate change and the environment.
Home to some of the most stunning views in the Baltics, there are also 5 other National Parks throughout Montenegro, which include Durmitor in the Northwest (39,000 ha established in 1952), Biogradska Gora in the NorthEast (5,650 ha established in 1952), Lovcen in South Montenegro (6,220 ha established in 1952), Lake Skadar in South East (40,000 ha established in 1983) and Prokletije in the East (16,630 ha established in 2009).
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!
