Southeast European Times: Montenegro Sees Upswing in Summer Tourism

Whether because of aggressive marking, a better-prepared season or burgeoning interest in alternative holiday spots, Montenegro was a destination of choice for domestic and foreign vacationers alike. The number of tourists during the first eight months of this year grew by 16.8 per cent compared to the same period last year, with a 30 per cent spike in revenues.

While unregistered tourism remains high, the government is taking steps to bring more visitors and accommodation sites into the system.
