PODGORICA, February 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The number of Russian tourists visiting Montenegro has almost tripled over the past 5 years from 2008 to 2013, according to Montenegrin President Filip Vujanovic who gave an exclusive interview to Itar-Tass First Deputy Director General Mikhail Gusman.
Almost 300,000 Russians visited the Balkan country last year.
“I am very happy that more and more tourists are discovering the north of Montenegro alongside with its coast,” the Montenegrin president said, adding Montenegro should do more to increase tourist flows from Russia.
“We need to develop more active contacts with Russian regions and tell them more about Montenegro’s opportunities,” he said.
He said he was happy that Russia could also offer something in the sphere of tourism. “Russia is a gem of world culture, and it is good that the citizens of Montenegro want to learn more about it,” Vujanovic went on to say. He added that the Montenegrins had always perceived Russians as friends and would do their best to give them a hearty welcome.
“Apparently, our friends from Russia have very great benevolence to us and a desire to visit Montenegro and spend their vacations here. Besides, these traditional historical ties may also excite a desire of our citizens to visit Russia to get acquainted with its rich culture and history,” Vujanovic said.
Vujanovic’s full interview will be shown in the Formula of Power program on Rossiya-24 television channel.
