Death announcements in Montenegro

I took this photo in Cetinje, the former capital of Montenegro, during a visit in July 2009. I found such death announcements put up on trees, walls etc., on several places I visited in Montenegro. Might be common also in the other countries of the former Yugoslavia. Quite a practical way of informing the community that a family member or friend has died and when the funeral service will take place.

  1. See another example of death notices in the second last photo at Galen R. Frysinger's website (photos from Budva, Montenegro).
