The accelerated development of tourism in the Montenegrin Coastal Region commenced in 1960s and continued its upward trend, though it was occasionally stopped by a devastating earthquake in 1979 and sanctions that United Nations Security Council imposed on the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1992. Such upward trend spread throughout the different state organizations and conditions that arose from different regional and wider international relations. Regardless the afore mentioned, the tourism has become increasingly important branch of economy thanks to its multiplication effects and it has had a decisive effect to the rapid development of  the municipalities in the Montenegrin Coastal Region. Thus, by means of “invisible import” the tourism provided its strong support to the overall development of Montenegro.
