Across the first border

Montenegro is a small republic (13,812km2), currently part of Serbia- Montenegro but striving for independence. 

In a nutshell: Yugoslav federation was formed after WWII as a communist group of 6 republics (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzogovina, Serbia (including Vojvodina & Kosovo), Montenegro & Macedonia) dominated by Serbia led by Tito.  Tito died in 1980 & communism ended in 1989 following the fall of the Berlin wall. Slobodan Milosevic gained power & fiercely protected the idea of a Greater Serbia breeding with it ethnic hatred.  Gradually countries broke away from Serbian rule but not without a bitter 4 year war & atrocities on all sides.

The country has a poor economy & rather an ex communist feel still around the towns outskirts
