When I'm with tourist boat from Becici, settlements near Budva, proceeded to Sveti Stefan, I had no idea what kind of civilization will doubt me introduce a two-day stay on the island, that long ago it was not. Because, Sveti Stefan is now a hard surface connected to the shore. Our little boat temporarily fit into the shallows just before the beach of
palace " Miločer " . For reasons unknown, all we have to wade through the sea water , though shallow . However , bare feet in the sea , shoes in hand and touch the sand gives us an impression of adventure. Look at the town - village of Sveti Stefan apparently not Blame some major changes since the last visit to these destinations . However , in passing by the former summer residence of Queen Maria - Palace " Miločer " suggests immense , only surmised , this inner change before an elite tourist resort. The hotel complex "Aman " introduces in these areas of Montenegro clear elements of the world's top tourist luxury. t looks all impressive but, I fear, too much for the originality and authenticity of the idea - Sveti Stefan, a rustic, stone and own possessing, if only the image, the rest of the coastal architecture and atmosphere.
We leave the rocky coating in insular part. Ambiance also includes the exclusive seaside resorts, formed from the ancient fortress. There are towers of three churches: the church of Sveti Stefan, after which the island was named, is located on the highest part of the island, the church of Alexander Nevsky, and we just pass by the smallest of dedication to the Transfiguration, which is located at the entrance to the town, the our way through the embankment.
We leave to hotel "Adrović." We pass through the narrow with cobbled streets. We are surrounded by typical coastal building protruding from the abundant greenery. The path can alternately rises and falls. A light sweat on my forehead clearance. Finally, the building of the hotel "Adrović." Resembles a small medieval castle. It's embedded in the environment. Inside dominates modern design with elements of domicile, so to speak, and stylized folk architecture. The room is very spacious, bright and clean. On the walls are paintings. The balcony provides an exciting view of the surroundings and the sea. Hotel gives the impression of a good balance with the environment, as well as exclusive and national harmony. It seems that the fashionable appearance of the facade or interior parts, do not threaten the harmony of the environment and heritage.
Before lunch we go back to the place from which it started in this tourist town-village. Sandy isthmus that connects the coast of the island, we arrive at the two beaches with sand and pebbles red. By the way, we learn that this place was built by the traders and fishermen in the XV century who lived there. It was only in 1960. village becomes a city hotel, thanks to famous painters Lubarda and Milunovic, who recognized this old place as a tourist attraction. I know from earlier that Sveti Stefan visited are many celebrities such as: Sophia Loren, Monica Viti, Willie Brandt, Bobbi Fisher, Sylvester Stallone, Claudia Schiffer, Ingemar Stenmark ... Along the way, I see that in many places that this picturesque place is suffering from a serious distortion of the authentic looks for the sake of luxury and comfort.
Followed by lunch at the "Adrović." first offered fritters / sweet round small cakes / with local honey, with homemade brandy, made from first-class grapes. He followed the local ham / dried pork / and special cheese that is stored in olive oil. Then, the main part of the lunch - black risotto, and “Zubatac”, sea fish, of grilled. Fragrant rosemary, finely chopped parsley, garlic, lemon slices and a large amount of olive oil, and the surrounding spiced this treat. We drank wine "Vranac".
The afternoon swim and dinner on the terrace wrapped up the day of the Sveti Srefan. The hotel is then provided us a very good night's sleep. Good bathrooms, comfortable beds and quiet. As we were leaving the next day to Budva , I was pleased with this trips. I only hoped that tourism officials and the owners of the complex will be able to find the right balance so that luxury , global uniform appearance and manner of rest and vacation not endanger that which is Sveti Stefan became a place of distinction and uniqueness.
