The country is famous for its spectacular mountains, the elegant beach resorts of the Budva Riviera, and the UNESCO World Heritage listed Bay of Kotor. It also has a fabulous winter sports destination, and an abundance of natural, historic and cultural gems and treasures.
The capital city of Podgorica is a vibrant hub and serves as a perfect starting point for exploring the plentiful attractions of the country. Montenegro’s southern coastline has a Mediterranean climate, whilst the centre of the country and the northern parts boast a continental climate, due to the higher scenic elevation.
