18 January 2019 - The Public Enterprise for Coastal Zone Management of Montenegro has completed the official Atlas of Montenegrin Beaches – a cadastre of beaches and swimming areas from 2019 to 2023, which determines the standardisation of the beaches, i.e. 12 "types" of beaches that exist on the Montenegrin coast. The beach and swimming area types were already determined within the Program for the Improvement of the Coastal Zone of Montenegro, which was adopted in 2018 by the Steering Committee of the Public Enterprise.

The Atlas defines: hotel swimming areas, family swimming areas, active rest swimming areas, party swimming areas, romantic swimming areas, city swimming areas without beach equipment, swimming areas for people with dogs, swimming areas with natural healing factors and wellness facilities, excursion swimming areas, nudist swimming areas and swimming areas intended for children's resort.

With the categorisation of beach types, the beach offer is harmonised with the demand of the markets that require the segmentation of the swimming areas, explained the director of the Public Enterprise for Coastal Zone Management of Montenegro, Predrag Jelušić.

“When we declared a certain segment of the Great Beach as sporting and recreational, for guests who want a more attractive and active vacation, we noted that the outcome was favourable. The guests who like to spend their vacation on beaches with a full-day, active content were overjoyed with the innovation in our offer. Thus, this year we have also made progress through the development of the Strategy of Montenegrin Beaches, and we believe that both tourists and the local population will appreciate the change," Jelušić said.

In Herceg Novi, including Njivice, Žanjic, Rose, Dobreč, Mirišta i Arza, 131 bathing places are categorized, of which most are family swimming areas.

“We also want to take on the role of spatial planning for the permanent integral land management in other municipalities, raising the level of quality of service and content which are appropriate for the coastal zone,” Jelušić said. “When we complete the documentation and determine which objects can permanently improve the quality of tourist offer in all municipalities, we will also be able to designate the number of necessary catering facilities. We will insist that these be catering facilities of high content, a minimum category of 4 stars,” explain the representatives of Coastal Zone Management Enterprise.

The current local government has made a decisive move to address one of the most significant problems for the city under Orijen. Thus, after almost a decade of the original idea, Herceg Novi Municipality budgeted one million euro in 2019 for the implementation of the new bus station project at Šištet. The goal of the local government is that the city under Orjen, in 2020, will get a representative building that will be the foundation for the further development of Igalo, and Herceg Novi in general.

Design of bus station

The Agency for Construction and Development of Herceg Novi has done a study which elaborated the locations for the construction of a new bus station. The study showed that the advantage of the location at Šištet is that it is located on the west side of the city and gravitates towards border crossings with Croatia, but also towards the branch of the future bypass and the highway route starting in Sutorina. In addition, this is a land owned by the Municipality that covers an area of about 21,000 sqm.

"First of all, we will build it with everything we need, and then expand it later on with the business and economic aspects," explained the Director of the Agency for Construction and Development of Herceg Novi, Boro Lučić.


As stated in the preliminary design, a significant number of tourists visiting Herceg Novi emphasized the fact that bus station is an important public building for the functioning of the utility city system, but also the first urban element of visitor experiences coming to the city.

Complex of the bus station

In the completed design solution, the surface, content and appearance of a new modern bus station are defined. The new bus station with accompanying facilities will occupy approximately 30 thousand sqm. It is designed as a complete functional zone, consisting of a terminal building, an object of accompanying business and commercial content, manipulative spaces for buses, an access road with a parking area and a maintenance facility with parking spaces. The conceptual solution envisages a total of 326 parking spaces, of which 99 are over-ground and 227 underground.

According to the conceptual solution, the bus station with additional facilities would be built in three phases, i.e. three mutually functional and technologically separate facilities.

The first phase involves the construction of a bus station building with a plateau and a supporting business space, totaling 15,169 m². As a precondition of the first phase, an access infrastructure will be built - a crossroad with the Adriatic highway and access street and parking in front of the main station building.

The second phase implies the construction of facilities for accompanying business and service facilities, while the third phase foresees the construction of a commercial center.

"Herceg Novi is an important tourist destination of Montenegro, and the proposed solution builds the first impression of Herceg Novi through the arrival of a complex urban ambience, conceived of a variety of facilities, organized into a unique functional unit that broadcasts the modernity, originality of interpretation and color sensations of the Mediterranean," reads the conceptual solution.


The local administration has provided transportation to pupils from the villages and suburban settlements in Herceg Novi free of charge throughout the whole year, as well as for those whose families are in a difficult financial situation and to the children of the Children's Home "Mladost." In addition, free transportation was provided to the retirees with the lowest incomes from the territory of the Herceg Novi.

For the first time in three decades the city bus line has been extended, so buses are now moving to Sutorina, making the Municipality respond positively to the numerous requests of the citizens. In this way, it meets the needs of numerous citizens, residents of Bajkovina and Njivice, as well as numerous employees of large business centers in this part of town, to whom the extended line will make much the transport to work much easier. In addition, another station will be introduced at the intersection towards the settlement Servisna zona and Bajkovina for citizens who live and work in this part of the city.

January 17, 2019 - The Agency for Construction and Development of Herceg Novi applied for funds through the IPA program for three multilateral projects, in cooperation with the local government and the Office for International Cooperation, as well as its associates from Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The total value of all three projects is about EUR 6 million, of which Herceg Novi would get almost 1.4 million. It is about ADRIASCAPE, Business Incubator and "Ciro 2" projects.
The ADRIASCAPE project is dedicated to better inform the general public of the cultural and natural heritage of the new hinterland, its affirmation, and enrichment of the city's offer with new tourist tours, as well as the affirmation of cycling, said to Radio Jadran the Director of the Agency for Construction and Development of Herceg Novi, Boro Lučić:
The idea is to make the route Porobici - Lazarevic, which would link Mojdez and Mokrine. The road already exists but is appalling. We would expand it, asphalt it, and set the light. It would be a continuation of the journey through the Tijesni gorge, Sutorina, and Ratisevina, as the second part of the road connecting the Mokrine. So, from Sutorina through Ratisevina and Mojdez, it would be possible to come out to Mokrine. The revitalization and the passage of this road are also significant for firefighter interventions. Even, bicyclists will get a fantastic route in the hinterland of Herceg Novi.
The second part of the project is the arrangement of the road from Mokrine to the church of Lazarica, as well as the current viewpoint. It would round off the bicycle route towards Orjen, connected with the Adventure Park on Vrbanj.
Also, as part of this project, partners from Herceg Novi should also organize a two-day international dry-stone constructing workshop, as well as a photo colony, whose theme will be the hinterland of Herceg Novi and traditional construction styles, with a particular look at the dry-stone constructions. The total value of the project is about 3 million euros, of which the Herceg Novi municipality will get half a million.
The second project named "Ciro 2", in which Herceg Novi participates with the municipalities of Ravno and Konavle, implies the urbanization of the former railway track by which the famous Ciro from the Zelenika railway passes to the train station in Sutorina. The value of the project is 1.5 million euros, of which Herceg Novi will use 500 thousand euros:
"We intend to set up various tables from Zelenika to Karaula, where we will show what was happening there, while Ciro was passing. We would do one station at Skver, called the "virtual reality station," where we would use a 3D technic with the help of glasses to show a short film about Skver when the train was operating," explains Lucic.
Now there is no access from Karaula to the railway station, so in Herceg Novi, they plan to set up a road to the Pavlovic motel, which would lead to the bus station and go further to Igalo. Arranging the route would imply placing lighting, benches, and polygons for rollers and cyclists. Through the Sutorinsko polje, along the river, the Agency plans to establish a cycle path for recreational cycling, which would complement this project with the Adriascape project.
The last project for IPA funds is the creation of a business incubator, and the partners of the Municipality of Herceg Novi and the Construction Agency in this project are the Development Agency of Novska - Nora and the Municipality of Laktasi. The value of the project is around €1 million, of which Herceg Novi budget is 376.4 thousand euros.
This project aims to develop a business center to help domestic manufacturers to accelerate the sales and marketing process of local products and agricultural production. Within this project, Herceg Novi plans the construction of an entrepreneurial center in Sutorina.
Lucic expects that next month they should know whether they have passed the "first round of qualification." If applications are accepted, funding contracts could be signed in June, after which projects implementation will start.

16 January 2019 - The final preparations for the opening of the 52nd Herceg Novi Winter Salon, which is scheduled for January 31 (Thursday) at 7 pm, are underway, all according to the established tradition of opening the Salon every year as an overture to the Mimosa Festival.

The selector of this year's Herceg Novi Winter Salon is Senka Subotić, a sociologist of culture and art from Budva. The Herceg Novi Salon, under the motto "Parallels," is conceived as a synthesis of various artistic expressions of authors who have been creating and working on the territory of the former Yugoslavia in the last few decades. The Winter Salon aims to present the current situation and to set a certain number of parallels between contemporary painting directions of that area. By presenting themselves at the Salon, with two works, artists point to the development of modern trends in the field of art. The influence of their predecessors is also noticeable, and therefore, they also cherish the tradition of the old artists from the area they come from.

The works of twenty artists from various academies from the territory of the former Yugoslavia will be presented at the Salon. Some of these academies are relatively young, and their representatives are hosted by the Herceg Novi Winter Salon for the first time.

The majority of the artists whose works will be exhibited at the Winter Salon come from Montenegro. Miodrag Šćepanović, Peko Nikčević, Zoran Petrušić and Sreten Nikčević have already presented at the Herceg Novi Winter Salon, while Elvir Lero Adrović, Ivana Babić, Isidora Dautović, Goran Ćetković, Jelena Đurašković, Miodrag Mišo Vemić, and Marija Vemić will present their work to the guests of the Herceg Novi Winter Salon for the first time.

Foreign exhibitors of the Salon include: Silva Radić, Ivan Pavlović and Josip Ivešić (Academy of Fine Arts of the University of Mostar), Milan Krajnović, Renato Rakić and Boris Eremić (Academy of Arts of the University of Banja Luka), Jelena Trajković, Kristina Pirković (Belgrade Academy of Arts) and Milija Belić (President of the board of Salon Realities Nouvelles in Paris).

January 14, 2019 - A retrospective exhibition of artworks produced during the activation program of the Spanjola Fortress from 2016 to 2018, organised by NGO Sinergija, will be opened on Saturday, 19 January at 7 pm in the lobby of Park Hall in Herceg Novi.

The Activation Program of the Spanjola Fortress started in 2016 as an idea that through the cultural arts programs the Sinergija team reactivates and amines the unused space of the fortress.
"During the activities on the study of the protection of architectural heritage, organised by NGO Sinergija in cooperation with the Foundation Petrovic Njegos, the idea came to make specific functions in the magnificent space of abandoned fortresses. We have started with programs during the summer, and later throughout the year, to contribute to its better look and exploit the potentials it has," quoted the NGO.
During that start-up of the activation program, in 2016, Sinergija still asked for an answer as to what would be the future function of the fort.
"We want art programs to fill the space with art and that our option to the former military use of these buildings is art first of all, and that what used to serve as a protective grate for the fortress becomes our base for culture, defending further inheritance privatisation," emphasises the NGO Sinergija.
Last year, Sinergija organised a round table attended by experts from architecture, conservation, directors of responsible institutions in the city and people from the NGO sector who are familiar with such practices in the world.
Sinergija has brought artists from different spheres, who have refined the fortress in their works, and in some ways began the reconstruction of Spanjola.
At the opening ceremony on Saturday, members of Sinergija will give thanks to all who helped to develop the project. The Exhibition in Park Hall will be open until January 30, on working day from 9-12 am.

January 13, 2018 - The core of the Mimosa Festival in Herceg Novi is the Feast of Mimosa, Fish, and Wine on the Riviera, from Kumbor to Bijela. Traditionally on the first Saturday of the Mimosa festival, this event brings together a large number of Herceg Novi citizens, as well as guests. The most visited is the Baosici Local Community, where the central Feast's event is traditionally held.

According to the president of the local community Baošići, Djuro Cvjetkovic, preparations for the Feast run with planned dynamics. With the weather, the Riviera could see over 20,000 visitors in Baošići. 
This year's organization brings much news, as the goal is to fulfill the entire walkway through Baošići. Instead of 10, there will be 12 pitches where the hosts will prepare fried sardines and cuttlefish, and there are also three locations with music:
"The music program will take place in front of the House of Culture; some music will be at Fishermen's Cooperative because it is the place where this Feast began 50 years ago. The location for the third music point will be located in the second part of Baošići, towards Bijela, somewhere near Hotel Max. We have not yet determined the exact location," explains Cvjetkovic.
On the day after the Feast, the "Fragrances and Taste of February," a bazaar of healthy food, will be held in Baošići, because the wish of this local community is to continue the activities of the Mimosa Festival on the Riviera.
On the second day of the Feast, guests will also have a chance to taste fish, wine, brandy, pickles, and follow a cultural-artistic program and a competition in preparing black risotto.
"Our goal is to welcome guests who come to Baosici and along the entire Riviera and give them the reason to revisit our place," says Cvjetkovic.
He praised the cooperation with all businessmen from Baošići during the summer season, which is why he expects that during the Mimosa Festival this cooperation will be good. Among the significant accommodation providers, the Hotel Max and the Damjanović villa are open every year during the Mimosa Festival.

Previously, new lighting was installed, as well as the sign "I love Herceg Novi" provided by the Tourism Organization. When the weather conditions permit, seasonal flowers will be planted, and small parking will be built across the road from the viewpoint.

This viewpoint was the favorite place of the former SFRJ president Josip Broz Tito, where he stopped and rested during his walks while he lived in Igalo, in the second half of the seventies of the last century. Then the first works on its arrangement were carried out.
