History of the Macedonians in Montenegro

A small Macedonian population had existed in Montenegro since the early 1900s. By 1948 only 133 Macedonians remained in Montenegro, this number rose to 875 in 1981. 1,072 Macedonians were counted in the 1991 Yugoslav Census, this number had fallen to 819 by 2003. Macedonian was the mother language of 507 people. The Macedonians were concentrated in Podgorica, Herceg Novi and Tivat. There are estimated 2500 Macedonians in Montenegro today. The two countries are mostly the same kinds of territories because of vicinity and are tied together.

Organizations

The two main organizations of the Macedonians in Montenegro are the Association of Montenegrin-Macedonian Friendship and the National Community of Macedonians in Montenegro, which was established in 2006.[2]

The National Community of Macedonians aims to make the Macedonian language more popular in Montenegro and to help Macedonians integrate better into the Montenegrin system and market.[3]
