Sutomore


Sutomore

Sutomore (Serbian Cyrillic: Сутоморе; Venetian: "Spizza") is a small coastal town in Bar Municipality, Montenegro. A 2003 census put the population at 1,827.

History

Sutomore was called "Spizza" in Venetian, when it was under the Republic of Venice from 1420 to 1797 and belonged to the Albania Veneta, except for short-lived Ottoman occupations. The Austrian census of 1910 reports that there were Venetian speaking families in Spizza in the twentieth century.

Today

It is famous for its 2km long sandy beach. Low prices (if compared with its neighbour Budva), along with easy access via Belgrade - Bar railway, makes it a very popular budet destination and extremely crowded during summer months. It is a favorite spot for day trips for young people from Podgorica, as it is only half an hour away, either by train or by car.

Population

According to the 2003 census, Sutomore has 1,827 inhabitants.
