Montenegro has been awarded with a big prize in MITT 2016 in Moscow. The Balkan country was the winner in the category “Destination with the best beaches”.
MITT (Moscow International Travel & Tourism Exhibition) which this year has been held from 23 to 26 March is one of the best and important travel and tourism exhibitions in the world and that’s why the award is a big achievement for Montenegro. The country was represented in Moscow by the National Tourism Organisation of Montenegro and the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism in cooperation with local tourism organisations and the tourism industry.
The representatives of Mοntenegro during the MITT had important meetings with professionals of the tourism industry, tour operators and representatives of the media which will be continued also these days after the exhibition.
Last year about 300.000 Russian tourists visited Montenegro and this year the Balkan country remains a favorite destination among Russians so it’s expected that the number will rise. This can be confirmed from the fact that during the summer Montenegro Airlines will have regular flights from Moscow and Saint Petersburg to Tivat in Montenegrο. There are also several regular flights and charter flights from Russian airlines.
During the MITT 2016 important Montenegrin entities like hotels, tourism agencies, tour operators and airlines presented their offers. One of them was Maestral Resort & Casino which is located in the most famous and visited area of Montenegro, Budva. The hotel changed direction recently and its new owner, Petros Stathis has plans to renovate it and make it one of the biggest and most luxury 5 star hotels in the region!
