Montenegro – 1000 Facets of the Kaleidoscope –The Wild Beauty at The Southern Adriatic
“Black” mountains, blue sea, green alpine meadows, awe-inspiring canyons, idyllic lakes
A universe in a nutshell – far apart from the beaten tourist tracks. A re-discovered paradise opens up to its guests.
Holiday at the seaside with lovely beaches, hidden coves, fascinating small historical coastal towns with modern flair: yes, naturally! You may choose from cosy quarters in a hospitable private home to international 5-star hotels with the complete wellness programme. The gastronomy offers delicious regional specialities as well as international classics.
Hiking on marked trails, through majestic mountain massifs with spice-scented meadows; discover the boundless high plateaus on a mountain bike; white-waters, the awe-inspiring canyon (Europe’s deepest) of the river Tara, a hot spot for rafters! Eerie caves and ravines where bears and wolves may hide (and maybe goblins and fairies): yes, naturally!
National parks appeal to all nature lovers. Montenegro already has four very distinctive ones and will soon have six. For instance Biogradska Gora, the wildly romantic primeval forest, which you can explore on an easy trail. Or the area around Lake Skadar, Europe’s largest bird sanctuary. With this and many other measures our country endeavours to fulfil the article of our constitution as an “Ecological State”. Growing areas of our land are being established as nature reserves and protected by law - naturally!
Historical treasures from the earliest settlements to the Njegoš Mausoleum on top of the mountain Lovcen: yes, naturally! Our varied history left its tracks from the Roman buildings that are still used as venues up to the fortifications built by the Habsburg realm – with a breathtaking view of the unique Bay of Kotor with its fascinating heart. Follow the Adriatic coastline south to the charming medieval village Budva and to the largest beach near Ulcinj: there is a lot waiting to be discovered. But we would like to induce you also to explore the interior of the country: the historical royal town Cetinje is just north of Budva. A very interesting excursion would be a trip to the Ostrog Monastery, where miracles are said to happen even today.
And you ought to meet the Montenegrin mountain people, too. Throughout our diverse history they learned to valiantly repulse invaders of all kinds – and to receive welcome guests with genuine hospitality. Do look them up in the scattered alpine cottages and experience a visit to friends.
Who will enjoy a holiday in Montenegro? Sunbathers and beach runners, adventurers and discoverers, fans of day- and nightlife, nature lovers and people looking for places of spiritual power: as a matter of fact, everybody.
