Situated on the coasts of Adriatic Sea is a tiny republic of Montenegro. Though small, this newest European nation is certainly not short on places of interest for the visitors. The country announced its independence from the former Union of Serbia and Montenegro in 2006 and became the then World’s newest sovereign State.
Having announced its arrival on the world map, Montenegro is raring to go after the global travellers, and showcase its vast reservoir of places of tourists’ interest. Of course, being a coastal republic, the visitors are simply pampered for choice among 117 pristine sandy beaches along the Adriatic Coast.
While you are left to wonder about the coastal beauty of the country, you are missing on the thrill of old towns, like Budva, Kotor (UNESCO World Heritage Site), Herceg, Novi, Perast, and Bar. Some of the hot destinations around include, beautiful Boka Kotorska Bay, Tara Canyon (the deepest canyon in Europe), peaks of Durmitor National Park, Biogradska Gora (Europe’s last rainforest), Skadar Lake (largest lake in the Balkans), Ostrog Monastery (situated on the almost vertical cliff of Mount Ostrog), etc.
There is something for everyone in Montenegro and the capital city of Podgorica reflects the vibrancy of people of Montenegro to the fullest.
