After a vacation in Montenegro, you will certainly want to take a piece of her comfort home. Souvenirs will help to do this – useful and tasty little things, saturated with an atmosphere of relaxed enjoyment of life. Choosing, what to bring from Montenegro, give preference to gastronomy and local crafts.
The first and mandatory purchase is cheese. Having tasted locally produced cow and sheep varieties, you simply will not allow yourself to leave the resort without a head of cheese. The price is symbolic – 10 euros per kilogram of Negus cheese. The most colorful cheese shopping is on the market in Podgorica. However, be prepared that bargaining here will not be easy. The traders are not ready to concede more than 1-2 euros.
Tastier than cheese in Montenegro can only be prosciutto – salted meat cut into thin slices. It is better to buy it in supermarkets in a vacuum package and with a specified expiration date. The best accompaniment to cheese is rakia. This is a local fruit brandy. Fans of light alcohol will like Niksichko, the only beer made in Montenegro. And also try Vranac Procorde – a unique wine made from grape … seeds. Do not deny yourself the pleasure of buying olive oil and the olives themselves. The latter are stuffed with almonds, and the oils on the windows sparkle in different shades, like expensive wines.
Souvenirs and gifts
