October 20, 2020 - Regent Porto Montenegro has organized the first photo–tracking tour of Boka Bay with six photographers from Montenegro, Serbia, and Great Britain. These destination photographers had a full and interesting agenda on Saturday, October 17th.
"Organization of the photo-tracking tour is an expression of our need to showcase further the stunning scenery of Boka Bay and the local lifestyle. Through the artistic expression that "speaks a thousand words," we wish to emphasize the importance of photography for travelers when choosing their next travel destination. This is vital in the digital era we live in and with the undeniable importance of social networks. Also, we wanted to highlight the importance and quality of local photographers' work, which has already contributed to Porto Montenegro and Montenegro's position as a high quality destination. Their work will be pitched to key international titles as well as part of the exhibitions in the country and internationally," stated Elena Ljiljanic, PR & Marketing Manager of Regent Porto Montenegro.
