Why Travel Montenegro?

 

Montenegro is a small Balkan country with rugged mountains, medieval villages and a narrow strip of beaches along its Adriatic coastline. The Bay of Kotor, resembling a fjord, is dotted with coastal churches and fortified towns such as Kotor and Herceg Novi. Durmitor National Park encompasses limestone peaks, glacial lakes, wildlife such as bears and wolves, and 1,300m-deep Tara River Canyon.

 

Speaking about the country, Montenegro is steeped in history and is a true delight for those who love history! You could start your exploration with the Kotor region and the Durmitor National Park—both of which are protected by the UNESCO World Heritage list. Next, take some time out to explore Budva—one of the oldest urban centers on the Adriatic coast, it clocks over 2, 500 years. Meanwhile, 50 miles south, the equally ancient Ulcinj is one of the most authentic old towns in Montenegro.

 

Later, head at 1300 metres deep for the Grand Canyon of Tara River, which is actually the deepest canyon in Europe and second largest in the world after the Colorado canyon in the USA. Not only this, Montenegro’s mountains are just as breathtaking too! Lovcen mountain and the Mausoleum of Njegos (built on the top of a lake) are simply worth everything.

 

Apart from all this, Montenegro has many more assets that make it an old school. The village of Mitrovica has the oldest olive tree in the world—it’s over 2000 years old and if you head to the Tara Canyon, it is the home of the oldest black pine rain forests in the world.
