Is my favorite thing in any blog tour - to break away from all the groups and find something unusual, unformatted, special.
Sometimes it is possible to do it yourself, sometimes help "local" bloggers.
I did not go away from their traditions, and in the last blog-tour to Montenegro. In my post-issue of the interesting places in Budva responded to 6 years living in these places, the blogger, who took in this amazing, like footage from the film-fantasy, a place - an abandoned village Mountain Swallow, once mining hovering over the Adriatic.
The village is not far from Tivat. By car will need some 10-15 minutes to climb to the scenic spots. If desired, it can be done on foot or by bicycle (for outdoor activities).
Popetlyat bit of rather narrow serpentines, we drive to Swallow
The telephoto can already see what awaits us - in dense vegetation here and there one can see the lonely house.
Once inhabited, but now dying.
Can you imagine how the morning started out the people living here, if they have out the window a stunning view?
But it was once ...
We drive to the village. Right at the entrance we were met half-destroyed house with crumbling roof and road signs warning that ahead of the bad road.
Note the signs are not rusty, quite fresh. Like the road itself.
The village Gornja Lastva is not considered completely disappeared or abandoned.
Alex said that some of the home here, though, and boarded up, but they are living, and in the summer you can meet a few families live. In addition, functions, again closed, church, and there is even a museum .... Which is also sometimes open. But still, for the most part, the village slowly disappears in the surrounding lush vegetation.
The reasons for this phenomenon are simple - people here just have nothing to do and nothing to make a living, so they are one after the other in his time down to the coast, where he started to develop the tourist industry and found work there already, in the new place.
Someone has occasionally returned to the left in the foothills of the house, someone stopped doing it. Someone still comes back and now ...

Alex says that's how long ago the house is built, can be judged by the palm trees in his yard. The greater the palm over the courtyard and, accordingly, the house.
Let's go into the court. Wall of the house.

And here, it seems, more recently we sat and drank coffee. Well recently. A couple of years ago.
You can not say about the house.
An interesting door to the attic. Once it entirely with ivy, in contrast to the walls. The impression is that someone wanted to renovate the house, I cleaned the walls of the Druid, but the roof has collapsed ....
