Kolasin - Montenegro

Image

Montenegro is a versatile country, with Mediterranean coasts and mountainous highlands within miles of each other. Kolašin is the top destination for highland tourism in Montenegro.

If you are traveling from Podgorica, you’ll find the hour drive to Kolašin  a pleasant and quick trip. However, in this hour, you’ll move from below sea level in Podgorica to more than 956 m above sea level at Kolašin. Kolašin is a popular travel and tourism destination, especially for tourists from Serbia, because of the mountain-like climate it experiences year-round as well as the ease of access-- Kolašin is on the direct train line from Belgrade to Bar.

Summer temperatures in Kolašin (not higher than +25°C) are very pleasant, especially for those who need a quick getaway from the seaside heat—this is also an ideal locale for those who want to get away from the crowds. Winter temperatures, up to -25°C, on the other hand provide the one thing winter tourism can not be without: snow!
Surrounded by forest and its intensively healthy aromatherapy breeze, Kolašin is located on a plateau, between two vastly giant mountains: Bjalasica and Sinjajevina. The names of both mountains are akin to their winter spirit—they always wear snow in the winter months and plenty of it.
The cleanest river in Europe, Tara (called the Tear of Europe!) flows north from here, towards Pljevlja and Šćepan polje. Right where it merges with Piva river, Tara has carved out a beautiful canyon, perfect for rafting and other extreme sports.
Considering the geographic and the ecological potentials Kolasin has, it is unfortunate that the city itself has not reached its fullest potential. One thing, however, is for sure: Kolašin can be a weekend break for people from the capital. With its untouched snow, stream banks caught by ice and pure air filled with the scent of pine trees, Kolašin is an intact ecological rarity. The food and lodging only add to the experience—the warm hotels, apartments and rooms for rent after an exhausting day outdoors is paired with the rich menu of national dishes resembling home cooked meals, including the Kolašin potato and variety of dairy and meat products provide the perfect energy recharge for the tired tourist.

Kolašin was founded by the Ottomans in the 18th century as a military outpost against the rebellious clans of Brda and Herzegovina. The remains of the military outpost are a popular tourist destination in Kolašin today, partially for the intrigue of the structure and partially for the history behind it. The history of Kolašin is based mostly in the constant fighting between the Montenegrin Christians and the Muslims—since most What is left of the military fortress can be seen today. Basically the history of Kolašin was comprised of constant fighting between Montenegro Christians and the Muslims. Since most of those living in Kolašin were recent converts to Islam, they fought their own clans and did so fiercely and ruthlessly. The town was liberated by the Montenegrins in 1878, but was seized twenty times during World War II by Montenegrin partisans, Italians, Germans and collaborators.

Since that time, the main town square and the surrounding streets have been updated greatly, though much of the original structure of Kolašin remains—these “ruins” provide a pure and natural look at the scenery that existed in the 19th century and prior in Kolašin.
Kolašin is a small mountain town whose sleepy atmosphere is broken only by the lively café life in which skiers, mountaineers, people on holiday, weekend visitors or tourists passing through mingle with the locals. The main square, Trg Boraca, is the focus of town's life. Its edges are formed by one-storied houses resembling typical mountain architecture and a monument to the fallen in WWII in the center. Visitors to the town can also visit the Seat of the National Park Bigradska gora (look up, 14 km from Kolašin towards Mojkovac, look up) and the Town Museum, which houses an ethnographic collection of the region.

The most unusual attraction in Kolašin is the Botanical Garden “Dulovine” privately owned by Daniel Vincek, mountaineer, author and co-author of the best guide for mountain climbing in Montenegro, “The Mountains of Montenegro”. This botanical garden features the many beautiful flowers and other plants of Montenegro. Whether you are a nature lover or not, the Botanical Gardens is an unforgettable place to visit.
Environs: National Park Biogradska gora (Biogradsko Lake 1094 m above sea level); large and small Pešićko Lake; Šiška Lakes both large and small, and Ursulovačko Lake.
