We’ll let you in on a little secret…
Tucked between the Adriatic Sea, Croatia to the west and the high peaks of Serbia and Albania to the north lays the unspoiled and largely undiscovered country of Montenegro. The mountains of Montenegro include some of the most rugged terrain in Europe all contrasting with a stunningly picturesque coastline – some say it’s the most beautiful country in Europe!
Featured in numerous ‘Bucket Lists”, Montenegro is a growing tourism destination; National Geographic Travel listed it among the “50 Places of a Lifetime” and the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) reported Montenegro as the number one location for tourism growth worldwide over the next 10 years. And, if you were paying attention, you’d know that the James Bond film Casino Royale was set in Montenegro (although the filming was done in the Czech Republic!). So the secret is quickly getting out!
Among the attractions, Montenegro’s range of topography, climate and terrain creates conditions leading to an area of incredible biodiversity, making it home to the highest recorded number of species of bird, plant and aquatic varieties in all of Europe. Along with its treasure trove of natural beauty, Montenegro’s ancient towns are rich in architecture, history and culture. This little country, unique in so many ways, combines the features of both the Balkans and the Mediterranean; you can enjoy a walk in the mountains one day and have lunch on the Adriatic coast the next!
Be sure to pick up one of these charming and affordable souvenirs you’ll find all around Montenegro: hand painted plates, vases, cups and olive oil dispensers.
