As part of the „Rosa Canina-Dog-rose“ event, and thanks to the assistance of two amazing ladies, Olivera Vukadinovic and Andrijana Kadija, as well as Hipotekarna Bank, the town of Šavnik got the bridge made of flowers, love and friendship! This is just the beginning of the activities towards Beautiful Montenegro, under the project bearing the same symbolic name.
Tourists and citizens make attractive photographs daily of the bridge and the lock of luck, unique in this region and beyond, hand made, specially designed for the Šavnik bridge.

The announcement says that the project, which includes dog-rose plantation, collection of other local medicinal herbs, their processing and market placement, will grow into a realistic economic and environmentally friendly foundation for sustainable development of this area.
