Montenegro - the black pearl of the Balkan Peninsula.
Many kilometers of sandy beaches, charming coves, rocky islets and majestic mountains, all against the backdrop of a turquoise sea. The interesting history and unique Balkan atmosphere originated from the mix of different cultures, aromatic cuisine rich in mutton dishes, dried fruit and nuts desserts and local rakija are the flavors of the sun country. Byron once wrote "At the moment of the creation of our planet, the most beautiful merging of land and sea occurred at the Montenegrin seaside" and this is the best description of the destination that has not yet been destroyed by massive tourism. Montenegro's flagship is the largest bay of the Adriatic, surrounded by tall mountains - Boka Kotorska with over 100 km of coastline. The most photographed place on the coast is Sveti Stefan - a tiny peninsula with characteristic stone houses connected to the mainland by a narrow spit - ideal for a photo session. The growing fashion for Montenegro makes "Come here before the place becomes crowded" is more befitting now of the Black Pearl of the Balkan Peninsula rather than Croatia. You are invited to visit Montenegro not only by the wonderful nature and the opportunity to admire it without crowds of tourists, but also the affordable prices, much more favorable than in the rest of the Mediterranean countries.

The longest beach in the Balkans
The Montenegrin coast is home to many picturesque places perfect for a family holiday, like Ulcinj - an oriental city with the longest beach in the Balkans - the 13 km Veliká Plaža, not far from the center. Bar is a developing seaside resort and the largest sea port in the country. The excellent climate and calm atmosphere make it an ideal proposition of holidays for people looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The most popular resort on the coast is Budva, with a medieval old town and atmospheric pubs.

Sun, mountains, canyons
Unspoiled and wild nature, the captivating beauty of the canyons, crystalline rivers and majestic mountain landscapes. There are 4 national parks in Montenegro: Biogradska Gora with primeval forest and trees that are over 500 years old, Durmitor - a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its famous mountain massif and glacial lakes, Lake Skadar - covering the entire Montenegro side of the lake and Lovćen with the Holy Mountain of Montenegrins - Jezerski vrh.

Rafting with a rush of adrenaline
For adrenalin freaks and lovers of the beauty of nature, rafting on the Tara river is a must during Montenegrin holidays. Tara Canyon, a UNESCO Heritage Site, is the deepest and longest canyon in Europe. The Tara River is over 140 km in length, characterized by fast current, full of faults and cascades, which makes it an ideal place for rafting.

Lake Skadar - gorica, monuments and pelicans
The largest lake of the Balkans is a natural border between Montenegro and Albania. You can find not only beautiful landscapes and natural attractions here. It is also a region with many magnificent medieval monuments. On the lake there are more than 50 small islands called gorica with preserved ruins of several hundred-year-old buildings - fortresses and monasteries. The lake is also the destination of numerous fishing expeditions - there live more than 40 species of fish. The lake is also one of the last places in Europe where pelicans live.

Balkan kitchen
Aromatic, simple and filling. It can be divided into three regions: on the coast it is dominated by fish and seafood - excellent mussels in white wine, the area of Lake Skadar offers fishes served in many ways, in the mountains the kitchen is heavier, rich in lamb, cheese and dried ham served with homemade rakija. The most popular cheese in Montenegro is kajmak - fat, buttery cheese, which can be bought in any store.

Did you know that...

  • The shape of the Bay of Kotor resembles a mouth, hence the name comes from the boka - bocca means lips in Italian, Lake Skadar is one of the last places in Europe where pelicans live
  • In Montenegro, while waiting for guests, people the doors of their houses wide
  • Rakija is made from any fruit: plums, grapes, apples, pears or oranges Montenegrin is the official language only since 2007
  • The current currency is euro
