MONTENEGRO

+143 attractions

Montenegro is a country that combines the possibilities of vacation, beautiful landscapes and interesting monuments. In a small area you can find everything you need for an attractive holiday.

The most visited part of Montenegro is its coast. The coastline is not very long, but very diverse. There are both sandy and pebbly, although quite narrow beaches, as well as places where the mountains descend steeply into the sea. Kotor Bay is unusual in terms of landscape, often called the fjord of southern Europe. Her beauty can be admired from the scenic roads on the banks and from the deck of cruise ships.

The Montenegrin coast abounds in picturesque, historic towns. The most famous of them is Kotor, famous for its beautiful buildings and city walls, which you can walk on. Nearby is Budva, located on a small headland with a compact structure integrated into a seaside fortress. Very picturesque, and much less frequented by tourists is also lying on the very border with Croatia Herceg Novi.

Almost all of Montenegro is covered by lower and higher mountain ranges. They are separated from each other by the deep valleys of the rivers along which the main roads run. In many places in the mountains are hidden Orthodox monasteries, the most famous of which are the idyllic Moraca, which produces honey, wine and home-made preserves, and looks like Ostrog attached to a rock wall.

For tourists who like to spend time actively, Durmitor is located in the north of the country. This mountain range full of picturesque karst forms and unusual rock formations rises to a height slightly exceeding 2500 m above sea level. Lots of walking trails have been marked out here, and people who like adrenaline can try rafting in one of the deepest mountain canyons in Europe, which flows the Tara River.
