Places to visit in Montenegro
Montenegro is located in the south of the Adriatic Sea, between Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It’s a land of immense natural wealth and a haven for nature lovers of every stripe, but it also offers cosmopolitan city living.
Montenegro’s capital, Podgorica, is close to winter ski resorts in the mountains to the north, and can offer the summer visitor seaside resorts on the Adriatic.
Further along the coast is Kotor, a city with fortifications built by the Republic of Venice and sited on what some have referred to as Europe’s southernmost fjord. In fact it is a submerged river bed, but it’s still spectacular, and so is Kotor: the Old Town is a gorgeous picturesque display of white stone buildings, and it offers visitors who turn away from it a view out across the bay to sloped cliffs and deep green forests. Close by is the Kotor sports centre situated off the main road and slightly into the forests.
Inland is where Montenegro comes into its own as a tourist attraction, though, with the stunning Durmitor National Park. Situated in the North of the country, Durmitor is a haven of untouched wilderness, perfect for biking, hiking, camping and canoeing – any outdoors sport, in fact.
For more luxurious living, Montenegro has everything any other modern country can offer: but few others can offer it packaged in a mediaeval walled town built on a rocky island in the middle of a sparkling azure sea, reached by causeway from the white sandy beach. When in Montenegro, don’t miss Sveti Stefan!
