An "m" name in the Balkans is easily mistaken for one in northern Greece as being in the same region geographically. Macedonia is of course the home of one Alexander the Great, who was alleged to have been aggressive in his pursuit of military conquests and territory.
I do not suspect many have been there. I have been to a now tourist filled Kotor, which has one of the most beautiful harbors in the world. Kotor also has a fairly ancient church built by monks on a monk built island that sits at the waterline, which is a nice diversion for a day. Has some Roman archaeological sites too.
No one there was anything but friendly, but then I was a paying customer. Hard to imagine them as aggressive compared to their neighbors.
I actually was just traveling and visited Kotor: still as beautiful as can be with amazing water to swim in and extremely friendly people. I hope I can return soon!
