First, five euros, then to the Nevidio canyon

"Across the river, right where you enter the canyon, they put up an unsightly barricade that makes it impossible to pass. Previously, everyone who came paid one euro excursion tax to the employees, and then another one for parking. And finally, five euros to everyone who wants to enter the canyon. The decision is illegal"

The new rules for passing through the Nevidio Canyon, a natural monument, adopted by the Municipality of Šavnik are the reason for the dissatisfaction of the guides who take adrenaline lovers through this unique area.

The stumbling block was caused by a change in prices, which one of the guides, Miško Kosić, claims are applied contrary to regulations.

"Across the river, right where you enter the canyon, they put up an unsightly barricade that makes it impossible to pass. Previously, everyone who came paid one euro excursion tax to the employees, and then another one for parking. And finally, five euros to everyone who wants to to enter the canyon. The decision is illegal. It was made on the first day of July, it was not published in the Official Gazette and there is a clause that it applies immediately after it is made. We are handicapped compared to the guides from the region. In addition, there is garbage everywhere that, despite the three employees , doesn't remove it," says Kosić and adds that he is following an agreement among the Montenegrin guides on further steps.

The local administration denies that there is garbage and refers to the findings of ecologists who visited the area and spoke highly of everything, including hygiene at the popular tourist destination. They say that the canyon management acts were passed and are being applied in a legal manner.

"At the session held on May 29 of this year, a Decision was made on the appointment of the manager of the natural monument of the Nevidio Canyon. The legal basis for the decision is contained in the Law on Nature Protection. This Decision designates the Municipality of Šavnik - Secretariat as the manager of the protected natural asset - the natural monument of the Nevidio Canyon local government. The decision defines the rights and obligations of the manager. Among other things, the Decision prescribes that the manager provides funds for work from fees for the use of protected natural assets. This Decision was published in the Official Gazette of Montenegro - Municipal Regulations No. 18/15," says Dušan Radanović. from the Secretariat of Local Government.

He points out that after the adoption of this act, the Decision on fees for the use of the protected natural asset - the natural monument of the Nevidio Canyon was adopted, which determined the amount, method of calculation and payment of the fee that individuals, entrepreneurs and legal entities pay to the Secretariat of the local administration, and there is no such decision for that legal decision of publication in the Official Gazette.
