The Montenegrin postcard

Vanja Radovanović, the 2018 Montenegrin Eurovision representative was in Portugal recently in order to film his Eurovision postcard. He visited the Portuguese capital and got a chance to discover the city’s sights and soughts.

The Montenegrin postcard will depict Vanja visiting Lisbon’s celebrated street market Feira de Ladra. This is the Portuguese capital’s largest market and is located at Campo de Santa Clara.

Vanja was thrilled with the filming of his postcard:

I really enjoyed this experience, we started in front of the Pantheon, we passed by the Church of Santa Engrácia and we ended up in Feira da Ladra, an incredible market. I really enjoy visiting these type of markets wherever I go, and I was very impressed with this one.  In this type of place it is possible to capture the spirit of the city and create a connection with the inhabitants. Lisbon is a beautiful city with amazing people, and I look forward to returning in May!
