Photographer's Note

Na proibalnom pojasu, koji oplakuje kristalno more, u neposrednoj blizini Budve, nalazi se Svati Stefan, "Grad-hotel", jedinstven u svijetu. Kao da je izronio iz mora, elegantno pokazujuci svoje cari. Sveti Stefan je cudesan grad u kojem je na neobican nacin spojeno vrijeme proslo i sadasnje. Njegove gusto zbijene, kockaste kuce odslikavaju arhaican ambijent, budeci neku davnu romantiku zivljenja i, istovremeno, u sjaju i luksuzu enterijera tih istih malih usnulih kuca, nudi raskosne mogucnosti koje obezbedjuju buran nocni zivot na Jadranu, zadovoljavajuci kriterijume elitne klijentele.

Athe foot of the Lovcen mountain ridge, in one of the most exotic encounters of land and sea, stands the island of Sveti Stefan. As legend has it, a fort was built on the island in 1442 when it was first settled. The island was fortified by walls so families from the surrounding villages could find shelter from Turkish and pirate attacks. According
to legend, the settlement was founded after a Pastrovic band bested the crew of a Turkish galley, and with the booty they seized a fort was built with one house for each of the twelve Pastrovic clans. On the terrace above the entrance to Sveti Stefan for decades the Pastrovic court meted out justice and resolved disputes, the
spot known as the "place of justice".
