The second Grape Festival was held in Virpazar

n Virpazar, after a three-year break, the event “Grape Festival” was held under the auspices of the Municipality of Bar and TO Bar. This festival, organized in honor of the nectar of the Crmnica region, gathered a large number of visitors.

The President of Bar Municipality Dušan Raičević was also satisfied.
“Congratulations to the organizers, the main goal of this event is to extend the tourist season in this area. We have every reason to be delighted with the current visitation of the Bar Riviera, especially the number of tourists in hotel accommodation.

How do we tackle the water crisis?

We work with local experts and community members to find the best sustainable solution in each place where we work, whether it’s a well, a piped system, a BioSand Filter, or a system for harvesting rainwater. And with every water point we fund, our partners coordinate sanitation and hygiene training, and establish a local Water Committee to help keep water flowing for years to come.

“Lake Skadar is the pearl of our coast, so we should treat it that way. The goal of this event is clear – we wanted to promote tourism in this area and all the benefits it has. The point is that we have to emphasize rural tourism. The goal is, of course, to extend the season,” said Kovač.

Guests enjoyed a varied musical program.

The performance of the Folklore Ensemble “Rumija” won everyone’s sympathy.

“I want to express my gratitude to the organizers for the opportunity to show what we know. It’s been a very busy summer for us. We had as many as 12 performances from Sutomore to Bar, which is an impressive figure. All generations love us”, said choreographer Dražen Kaljević.

“Virpazar is a treasure, the lake too. We must preserve it for the sake of future generations”, said Joličić, who also recited several appropriate poems.

Nemanja Bogićević, a young singer-songwriter from Bar, will have a fond memory of the evening. While thanking the organizers for the opportunity to perform, he called the last manifestation in the calm of summer in Bar “magical”.

“I’m glad that I was able to play some old rock hits, but also something from my own work,” said Bogićević. This talented young man, known for his outstanding gigs in renowned Montenegrin clubs, has announced the imminent release of a solo album.

The entertainment program ended with the performance of the L’Ombelico band.

“We are sincerely delighted with the organization, but also with the place where we performed. We were founded in 2019, we are still a young band and events like this are an important experience. There are six of us in the band, and everyone gave their best tonight. For us, this evening was unforgettable”, said Dario.
