  1. There’s still a lot of work to be done to make everything you’ve shown here a reality. I had a very bad experience a few years ago where my life was hanging by a thread, I got an infection bathing in the waters off the coast of Tivat, i.e. I was the victim of a disenhydating fast boat driver where I sustained serious bodily injuries that still have dire consequences! Then as my professor doctor told me, and of course I got an analysis from the water lab where I was in, it’s full of feces, you read the feces well! The big problem of all coastal cities from Kopra to Albania does not have a sewage network built, so all wastewater spills into the sea! I hereby appeal to all people who are going on holiday to Croatia and Montenegro to think twice before bathing in those waters!
