Bio: Niksic is the town of my childhood. Place full of authentic people where I grew up and formed my character and worldview. Freedom Square has always been a vibrant place where the town's life takes place, the famous site where everyone goes for a walk and meets each other. As we pass by the monuments to King Nicholas and the local hero of the Second World War Ljubo Cupic, you will hear a story about the King and about the early twentieth century when Niksic established itself as a modern town and as the pillar of industrial development of Montenegro. The square is surrounded by the authentic local architecture buildings, as well as cafes, restaurants, pastry shops and pubs that are part of the town's tradition. During the day, townspeople love to sit in the cafes and drink their coffee for a few hours. At these slow moments of non-binding conversations, the spirit of Niksic emanates. That's what you will not find in tourist brochures. As a tourist guide I have visited many cities in my profession. I became acquainted with their interesting history and cultural heritage. That moment of encounter with an unknown city for me is something magical. Discovering one by one quarters of the city or every new street for me is like opening a new chapter of a book that you cannot wait to dive into. Behind every corner of Niksic, behind each building, there are stories written down, waiting for you to come to know them. The many excitements I have experienced by discovering foreign cities I would like to transfer to the people who visit my town. As a white dove above the town stands a beautiful Cathedral Church. Although it is built from a strong Montenegrin stone, it seems to have no weight. As if it has descended from the sky preparing to ascend us all on its wings. The story about the construction of this church, dedicated to Saint Basil, is different and special as well. This story is related to the Russian Emperor Nicholas, its benefactor. You can hear it if you come. Not far from the church there is one place where young people gather in the evening. They are chatting by the walls of King Nicholas' castle. This castle is listening to teenage stories, their desires, dreams and hopes. Once they grow up and maybe eventually leave the town they will forever remember those words and gatherings by the walls of the renaissance castle. All the fates and their stories are invisibly written on these walls. As the main guardian of history and all the memories of the town in the castle today a Museum is situated. Let us take a walk together through the Niksic's memories from prehistory to the present day. Welcome to Niksic. I promise you that you will find excellent climate, tasty home-made food, homemade beverages and friendly people everywhere in the town.

Bio: Hi everybody, My name is Miodrag Karadzic and I live in Nksic. I love nature and I am member of Association of young ecologists of Niksic for more than twenty years. My love for nature has started in childhood because I have stayed my summer school vocations almost in NP Durmitor and Bjelopavlici plain, along river Zeta. On Zeta I adore boating (in one ocasion I was melting), and on Durmitor I liked climbing over the tops... In glacier lakes I learned to swim well and when I came back on Zeta my challenge was swiming in linns. Lika a greeter, I can show you Slano lake, situated 15km from Niksic. This lake is my favorite excursions destination over free time. I go there and enjoy its charms. I would be glad to tell you something about its construction, present forgotten natural and cultural values and tell about its significance today. Close to lake is the oldest bridge in Montenegro, built in third century. If you like sports fishing, we will meet with local fishermen and that is ideal opportunity to pull the hook and, while we are waiting a fish to bite, if we are lucky, we can have a photos because this lake is temporarily home for up to 20.000 birds. One big greet for everyone and see you on the lake!
Bio: I show an interest in nature and travel when I was an eight years old pupil, in the second grade. At that point I ''familiarized'' with Geographic atlas. I was literally obsessed with it. Years later, as time went by, I decided to set Atlas aside in order to discover real places. Particularly, I was interested in the places with a special or inspiring story. A couple years ago I discovered an estavelle, located a few kilometres from my homeplace. For geographers and the curious ones, that is Gornjepoljski vir - the largest and the most distinct estavelle (628m) in Montenegro and the Dinarides. At the time of high water, this natural phenomenom functions as a spring, and during the dry season it functions as a sink. It is circular in shape with a diameter of 94m, and a depth over 90m. Also Gornjepoljski vir is connected with the Sušica riverbed by means of approximately 30m long channel. There are some more interesting natural monuments. Those places have local legends about their emergence and listening stories is a real adventure.
