Ada Bojana – Nature’s store of treasures and Nudist paradise
Away from noisy streets and the flurry of the city, surrounded by pure beauty, adorned with Mediterranean plants, Ada Bojana is a place with which visitors usually fall in love at first sight.
The name Ada means river island in Montenegrin. The island Ada has the shape of a triangle and is bathed from two sides by the Bojana river with fresh river water and by the Adriatic sea with warm salty sea water from the third side.
The legend says that this island appeared on the place where the ship «Merito» had a shipwreck. The ship sank not far from the seashore and remained underwater for a long period of time, during which the people tried to figure out how to lift it up to the surface. It remained «captured» in the water so long that the sand slowly covered it and eventually an island was formed. How?
The rapid flow of water with sand and silt, colliding with the hull of a sunken sailboat, created an obstacle to the usual movement of the river and in this place it was divided into two branches. As a result, an unusual triangular island was formed. Now the river bed of Bojana and its left arm divide Montenegro with Albania.
The island connects the mainland with a bridge, that seems to divide two worlds – normal and free world. In 1973 a nudist village called Ada Bojana was founded on a separate part of the island and from then on it has become a favorite place for those who enjoy such holiday.
