 To bear the Montenegrin spirit within is both a favour and a curse. Montenegro is both its seafoam and powdery snow, the playful outline of its rocky cliffs and its rushing rivers, the cry of its battles and the intoxication of its wars. It is a land of hope and despair, of reality and dreams. It has been scarred by bullets and strokes of lightning. The paths of peace and tranquility have been known to become lost in it. Montenegro has never begged for mercy because of its love of freedom, but it has never understood why this love should be a sin. It is a land of contrasts and paradoxes - of deep darkness and luxurious light, of free imprisonment and imprisoned freedom. It is a nevertold history of how for centuries men have shed secret tears for both themselves and others. Montenegro is a state which has not known state divisions just as it has not known the dividing line between life and death. It is the banquet table of poverty, the grief of the abandoned hearth, the restlessness of eternity, the mother who tore at her loose hair for the children she drove away from her apron strings. Its mountains are harsh and mild, sad and gay. It is the window open to freedom which continuously brings in the broken chains of oppression, it is constantly in wounds which it bathes with dewdrops.    VELJKO VLAHOVIC

Presentation of Montenegrin culture in Adriatic Initiative

Association of Montenegrin publishers will present modern Montenegrin literature on the Book fair in Pula, Croatia.

The aim of this multi-ethnic initiative (Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro and Albania) is to create cultural networks in the Mediterranean region. Apart from modern literature, Montenegrin culture will be presented by Montenegrin painters, national folklore, theatre and architecture. Also, a documentary movie about modern Montenegrin poets will be presented on the event, for the first time. The movie was created in co-production of Croatian and Montenegrin National TV stations.
