Cervantes Square inside the Venitian Palace in the Old Town will also be a place for tourists to enjoy indigenous okra dishes prepared in Ulcinj's famous cuisine this August. The event “Okra Days”, as announced by the organizer Mersiha Resulbegovic Mavric, will be held on August 18 and 19.

The "Okra Days" were organized for the first time last year and immediately aroused great interest from local and foreign tourists as well as bystanders.

“This year, the event has grown into a traditional one and will be international. This contributes to the sustainable development of tourism by promoting Ulcinj's national cuisine and by pointing out the importance and all the healing properties of okra on human health," Resulbegovic Mavric told “Vijesti”.

She also recalls that okra has a unique taste and has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries.

"The okra tasting is free, and this year the participants from Ulcinj will join and support us," said Resulbegovic Mavric.
