The tiny southern state of Crna Gora is better known under its Italian name Montenegro.
Montenegro may be small in terms of area, but it boasts stunning mountainous landscapes, dramatic coast lines, historic monuments and truly beautiful walled towns.
Montenegro’s magnificent sea side scenery is the best known among travelers, its mountainous inland has some grand panoramic views to offer. The country shares the large freshwater Lake Skadar with neighboring Albania. It has National Park status and offers great opportunities for hiking, bird watching and wildlife spotting.
A real must-see is the splendid Tara River Canyon, with its steep banks rising up to 1300 meters above the River Tara waters. It’s the second longest canyon in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The canyon is located in Durmitor National Park, which is a World Heritage Site of its own and boasts a rich flora and fauna as well as snow-covered high peaks, several canyons and many lakes. Montenegro definitely makes a fantastic location for all mountain lovers.
The Bay of Kotor is probably one of the prettiest bays in this part of the world. One can find beautifully preserved towns with a vibrant history. Wandering through the labyrinths of narrow and cobblestoned streets, you’ll come across lively piazzas, many ancient churches and lots of pleasant bars and restaurants.
