    Wir sehen heute richtig gut aus ...

    August 31, 2019 in Montenegro ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    ....muss wohl an dem Schnaps von gestern liegen, der total ach 3-WetterTaft geschmeckt hat.
    Hermann hat reichlich Bier getrunken aber keinen solchen Schnaps. Deshalb durften wir ihn nur von hinten fotografieren.

    Nun frühstücken und dann volles Rohr nach Sarajevo in Bosnien-Herzegowina.

    Cetinje Montenegro

    June 12, 2019 in Montenegro ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    This is the old capital of Montenegro where the King Nicolas lived. Today the city has many embassies but sadly most of the buildings are run down and uninhabited. The capital now has moved to Podgorica. However the current presidents residence still remains in Centije. We finished our three days here by going it for nice dinner in the old city of Kotor. Judy's New hair colour suited the occasion.Read more

    Cetinje is an odd mix of capital cityand overgrown village, where single-storey cottages and mansions share the same street. Indeed, the main street, empty in the rain, ressembles a small market town and has an attractive feeling even in the rain.
    The city was founded in 1482 by Ivan Crnojević, the ruler of the Zeta state, after abandoning his previous capital near Lake Skadar, Žabljak Crnojevića, to the Ottomans. Cetinje was the capital of Montenegro until the country was subsumed into the first Yugoslavia in 1918. After WWII, when Montenegro became a republic within federal Yugoslavia, it passed the baton – somewhat reluctantly – to Titograd / Podgorica.
    Ambassadors appointed to the Royal Court, (a Grade 4 posting at best,) built the mansions - if that is the right word for middle-class 18th C town houses. The town lies in a valley at the base of the Lovcen mountain and is the base camp for numerous long hikes in the hills. Definitely worth coming back to do one some day.
    In 1864 the remains of the small, XV century church of the Birth of the Holy mother of Good, (probably they added an 'o' in enthusiasm,) were covered by a new one, not much larger. Vlachs Church, as it is now known for unexplained reasons, is famous for its establishment under canon law. The fence surrounding it was made from the barrels of guns confiscated in the wars against the Turks in 1858 and 1876 – 1878.

    Fietsdag 12: Kotor - Centinje

    September 23, 2019 in Montenegro ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    Afgelegde weg: 42.87km
    Aantal hoogtemeters: 1225m

    Omwille van het slechte weer en de niet te vermijden drukke wegen langs de kust, hadden we besloten we om de route landinwaards te houden en een extra tussenstop toe te voegen.
    Dit was geen probleem omdat na onze 1ste route wijziging we 1 dag extra over hebben.

    De beklimmingen zijn goed te doen, maar met het regen weer zijn we toch blij dat we terug binnen zijn.
