The route of the Tour 1: PODGORICA-VIRPAZAR-SKADARSKA KRAJINA -ADA BOJANA-PODGORICA
Skadarska Krajina is a historical and geographical area in Montenegro stretching between the Rumija Mountain, Tarabos hill, Bojana River and Skadar Lake.
Krajina was first mentioned in the Chronicle of the Priest of Duklja (from the 12th century) as Craini, the place where the castle of Vladimir, the Prince of Duklja, was located, as well as the monastery of the Virgin Mary of Krajina.
This area located between Skadar Lake and Mountain Rumija is rich in picturesque monasteries and churches, desert islands and authentic villages. Numerous cultural and historical monuments, archaeological sites, medieval monastery complexes and fortifications testify that this area has been a significant cultural centre since ancient times.
As the legend has it, Ada Bojana appeared in 1858, at the mouth of Bojana River in the Adriatic Sea, at a place where the ship called Merito wrecked into the sea. Along with two nearby islands the shipwrecks were then retaining river sediment for years and created the beautiful island of Ada. It began to appear in 1882. Ada Bojana is one of the famous pearls Montenegro offer.
