From Concetration Camp to Prestigious Resort – Mamula Island

Mamula Island

Mamula Island in the Adriatic Sea in the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro is a 19th century fort used as a concentration camp by Italian troops serving under fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. Now, a former concentration camp island fortress – called Lastavica, which is popularly known as Mamula will be transformed into a luxury high-end resort.
Plans for the construction of the resort include swimming pools, restaurants, bars, VIP sections, discos and a marina for super yachts.

Families of people who were once prisoners on this island in “hellish camp”, expressed their disapproval on the project, but the government of Montenegro continues to go as planned, which means that the conversion of the fortress in the luxury resort imminent. Apart from the dark history, it will be interesting to observe the development of the future of the resort. We wonder whether they will be able to fulfill its goal and attract the rich and famous in this part of the world, if not the whole?
