Ulcinj set to become a new Regional Centre for Tourism By 2030
30.08.2021As Montenegro continues to recover from the global Covid Pandemic, posting strong visitor numbers of 740,000 tourists in July, the government met recently to discuss how they can further capitalize on increased demand for tourism to the country.
Recognising that Montenegro is becoming ever more popular for holidaymakers and International home buyers, having recently been voted in National Geographic as the second-best place to holiday in 2021, the government have now set their eyes on Ulcinj to become the newest Regional Centre for Tourism by the year 2030.
Following a meeting between the Deputy Prime Minister Dritan Abazovic, the Minister of Economic Development Jakov Milatovic, the Director of the Administration for Inspection Affairs, Chairman of the Board of PE and the Hoteliers of Ulcinj it was obvious that not only had the tourist season got off to a fabulous start, but more could be done to meet demand, and now was the perfect opportunity to start preparing for the years ahead. Abazovic commented ‘Ulcinj is Montenegro’s biggest development opportunity in 2030, and we want this city to become a large regional centre of tourism’.
Of the 740,000 tourists who were welcomed into Montenegro in July, 380,000 visited within the first 15 days, which is a 5% increase in 2019, and by the end of the Summer season, it’s hoped that total visitor numbers will have surpassed pre-pandemic levels which is very positive news indeed for a country who’s tourism industry accounts for around 25% of its total GDP.
Just on a final note, Montenegro’s growth has been huge, especially over the last 9 years. Looking at official stats from Knoema (https://knoema.com/atlas/Montenegro/topics/Tourism/Travel-and-Tourism-Total-Contribution-to-GDP/Contribution-of-travel-and-tourism-to-GDP-percent-of-GDP) in 2010 the Tourism Industry accounted for just 12.5% of its total GDP, and in 2019 it accounted for 21.7%, a whopping 9.2% increase, so with this upwards trend showing no signs of slowing down (apart from the impact of Covid) it’s exciting times, and the future looks bright, especially for Ulcinj!
In period May-August 2022 we sold our flats in St-Petersburg Russia and have bought two ones here in Montenegro, Becici. We decided to move here and make new home and business with my husband. Our agent Milica Zugic is really became our angel - provider here in Montenegro. She is very reliable, responsible , professional employee of CMM Budva department. She has developed intuition and found very fast necessary properties which we needed. Also she helped us to speed up the process of registration documents in MUP.( list nepokretnosti, etc). She was our real provider here. Very appreciated her and all staff of Budva department for there assistance. Separately to lawyer Ivan and his legal team. Very recommended choose Milica Zugic as real estate manager when you search for assistant in this complicated and important field as buying property in Montenegro.

At the beginning of April 2022, our family living in Prague bought a house in Sutomore with the assistance of your company.
Let me express my gratitude to the management of your company for the service provided, and especially to your employees - Anastasia Zeyak, Alexei Grachev and Elena Bozhovich for their attention, patience and even care for the whole time of buying real estate and the services provided after the purchase.
I would really like all companies to work with the same quality of service. After coming into contact with this kind of attitude towards the client, all our environment, if necessary, will refer to your company only.
With gratitude on behalf of our family.

Based on my experience with CMM in Budva, Montenegro, I can say that they are reliable, fast, and they deliver what they promise. They take really good care of their clients. For instance, I was offered a lift from the airport, and they would take me back and forth from Tivat to Budva and Becici to see various properties. They would answer all of my questions and respond promptly. They have an excellent team: Katarina, Alexander, Natasha, Martin and some other guys whose names I don’t remember. Katarina, my wonderful agent, went to every length to help me find a perfect home. Unfortunately, my situation changed and I had to postpone my relocation to Montenegro.
I would strongly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a property in Montenegro.

We were introduced to CMM by friends who had already done research on Montenegro and CMM. We purchased our apartment in Dobrota, just outside Kotor, all remotely from South Africa, during the lockdown. Everything was seamless without any problems at all. All the CMM departments work together well from the sales team, head office, legal, interior design and rental department. Every detail was well communicated with an abundance of zoom meetings, videos, emails etc
We are thrilled with the outcome and enjoyed working with the CMM team. They were incredibly professional.
After sales service is also excellent as we move into the rental phase of the apartment and over all management of the apartment including maintenance.
We have been directly and indirectly involved with many houses/apartments all over the world and this was the up there with the best service we have received.
Thanks to everyone we dealt with at CMM it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you all. We look forward too many happy years working with you on our rental.

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 !!!
