Exploring Montenegro is a journey to enrich the soul, excite the body and entice the senses.
The ancient Greeks and Romans, Slavs, Ottomans, Venetians, Napoleon, Austro-Hungarians, they all dropped by at their respective times. The appeal of this country has gone undenied for millennia, all until the tumultuous 20th century. But Montenegro is now making a grand comeback.
About the size of the Bahamas, Montenegro counts just over 600,000 inhabitants. The country’s name, Crna (negro, i.e. black) Gora (monte, i.e. hill), might lead you to believe that it is all about its mountains and highlands. The pristine north of Montenegro serves oxygen in some of the continent’s most preserved natural patches, from the deep canyon of Tara River, the primeval forests of Biogradska Gora to the snow-capped Durmitor and unique bird sanctuary at Skadar Lake.
But Montenegro’s ‘black mountains’ transverse the continent to meet with the Adriatic Sea in what is perhaps one of the prettiest, and most dramatic, Mediterranean coastal bits. With the Bay of Boka and its fjord-like appearance, petite towns brimming with heritage and happening, high-end facilities, praised marinas, endless beaches, star performances and the crystal-clear sea, the coast of Montenegro is definitely the first to draw attention to this small European country.
Whether you choose to explore Montenegro for a day, a week or as part of a longer journey, Adriatic Concierge Montenegro remains here to show you its best face.
