    Exotic location, indeed.

    Montenegro is an independent country, and has not been a part of Serbia since 2006.

    Thus, your photo caption placing the couple “in front of the clock tower in Montenegro, Serbia” needs correcting.

    Perhaps identifying the location of the clock tower in a specific city, town, or village in the country of Montenegro would do the trick.

    Fixed. Thanks, Tim.
