TEN TOP UK-MONTENEGRO FACTS

1. British agent Fitzroy McLean was parachuted into Montenegro's rocky mountains with a brief to find Tito and cooperate to drive out the fascists and nazis from the Balkans. Mission accomplished!

2. In 1912, Great Britain built an embassy in Montenegro's former royal capital city Cetinje in the style of an English country house. It is used as the Montenegro University Music Academy these days. 

3. In 1907, a competition held by the Times of London to find the most beautiful woman in the world was won by a Montenegrin beauty from the Lake Skadar village of Godinje. Simple peasant woman Milena Delibasic was asked to attend by her king, Nikola Petrovic, but afterwards chose to return to her village where press cuttings of her moment of fame are kept to this day.

4. The British TV series 'Only Fools and Horses' is wildly popular in Montenegro. Actor Nicholas Lindhurst has visit several times and a pub in Montenegro's capital city Podgorica is named 'The Nag's Head' in honour of the show.

5. Montenegro is two thirds the size of Wales.

6. London was the base for Montenegro's royalist government in exile during WW2.

7. Oxford University's late John Plamenatz, a world famous political theorist, left Montenegro as a child for exile in the UK. His ancestral village, Boljevici by Lake Skadar, is now home to British expats Ben and Emma Heywood and the base for their Undiscovered Montenegro activity holidays.

8. Norwich rugby club is due to play Montenegro's Podgorica rugby club this Saturday (11 March 2016)

9. easyJet has just announced the first ever direct budget flights from the UK's Gatwick airport to Montenegro's Tivat starting 16 June and building on their Manchester-Tivat route and Ryanair's year-round Stansted-Podgorica service.

10. Depite having a population a 100th the size of the UK, it took the English football team four attempts over two qualifying tournaments to achieve a victory over the Montenegrin football side.
