Plav — the Muslim center of Montenegro
Мусульманская мечеть в городе Плав Черногории

Little provincial town of Plav is one of few Muslim towns in Montenegro. This is a stunningly unique place. The majority of the town’s population are Albanians. Walking around the city you will notice that many administrative and advertising signs are in two languages.

No less unique is the atmosphere of the town. Walking along crooked streets after the dusk you will hardly see any women as all of them are already home by then. Sure, there are no women in a burqa on the streets, but European freedom of oneself inherent to Christian towns is absent.
