Vlatko Bulatovic

Vlatko Bulatovic, of Montenegro, is a professional mountain guide with a passion for introducing his home country to hikers. With Montenegro emerging as one of Europe’s newest hiking destinations, he has been instrumental in recent years in developing hiking routes, marking trails, creating trail maps and determining locations for hikers’ huts  in Montenegro’s mountains. A former restauranteur, Vlatko (short for Vladimir) has a degree in Economics and speaks Montenegrin and English. When not guiding, he can be found indulging his love for music by playing the guitar, drums, harmonica, and sometimes the kaval (the Balkan shepherds’ flute).
