I live in Montenegro. Yes, you read well – Montenegro. No, it is not in Africa and it has nothing to do with black people. Montenegro is international name for European country and means Black Mountain in translation. You would expect to see here Black Mountain but…no, you can’t. What you can see are remains of dark green pine forest which used to adorn Mountain Lovcen in 15 century and which seemed so dark (almost black) from distance that confused Venetians called it Montenegro. But what one can find here are black squirrels around Black Lake in the black pine forest in this Black Mountain country. And black wine too. No, this is not a mistake. Exquisite Montenegrin red wine called Vranac has dark ruby color, almost black. If you call it red wine, Montenegrins will correct you. There is not something like red wine in the country of Black Mountains.
See me performing national dance accompanied by a local man. It happened spontaneously, on a request of our tourist on the Plato in the National Park Lovcen.
