Montenegro

The small Balkan country of Montenegro lies nestled between Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo and Albania. Its name translates as ‘black mountain’. To the west, there are beautiful beaches and the Adriatic Sea, with charming fishing villages dotted along the rugged coastline. Further inland, the wide plains and high mountains provide spectacular scenery, and plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities. The famous fortified town of Kotor is situated in a bay with the dramatic limestone cliffs of Mt Lovden providing shelter.

Montenegro is an up and coming popular holiday destination that has something to offer everyone. Nature lovers can enjoy the exploration of the magnificent and mountainous Durmitor National Park, which is part of the Dinaric Alps. Its highest peak, Bobotov Kuk looms 2.523m from ground level. Endemic wildlife is abundant in the lush rolling hills. It’s not uncommon to come across a bear, deer, wild boars, wildcats or wolves in the remotest regions of the country. Montenegro is also home to a variety of bird, reptile and fish species. The diverse climate benefits the indigenous flora and promotes the country’s wild beauty.

The history and heritage of Montenegro is evident in its many medieval walled towns. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Kotor and admire the well-preserve architecture that is set in a stunning sweeping landscape. Enjoy a day trip to the ancient town of Perast, on the tiny island of Sveti Dorde, and visit its quaint centuries-old church. Montenegro also boasts picturesque seaside resorts where the pace of life is tranquil and laidback. Explore the town of Ulcinj and learn about its rich pirate history. Escape to the beautiful Budva Riviera and enjoy the sandy beaches and nightlife of the enchanting historic district. The secluded beaches offer an idyllic haven away from the vibrant Old Town centre.
