Montenegro is a ruggedly beautiful country in the Balkans, with forested mountains, a picturesque Adriatic coastline, historic monuments and medieval towns.
The Bay of Kotor is arguably one of the prettiest bays in the world, and the location of the stunning town of Kotor. Montenegro may be lesser visited, but is well worth visiting, especially if combined with Croatia.Read More...
Bay of Kotor
This stunning bay is home to the medieval town of Kotor with its cobblestoned streets, lively piazzas, ancient churches and lively dining scene.
With great beaches and a lovely old walled town centre, spend some time exploring on foot, or take a day trip to the unique Sveti Stefan resort.
Although a small town, Perast is packed with wonderfully preserved Venetian and Baroque architecture.
This vast freshwater lake enjoys National Park status, and is a great place for taking time out to go hiking or wildlife spotting.
One of the region’s oldest towns with a delightful town centre and a beautiful setting.
Enjoying a Mediterranean climate, Montenegro’s coast offers dry summers and mild but rainy winters. The more central and northern regions experience a more continental climate, with temperatures varying hugely with altitude. Montenegro can be visited all year round but the best months are April – June and September/October.
Language Montenegrin (similar to Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian)
Why we love it With beautiful sun-dappled waters, stunning bays and history oozing out of every cobblestoned corner, Montenegro is a delight for both nature and history lovers.
Weather Montenegro is best visited during April and October – months which are generally dry and warm. July and August can be quite hot during the day but pleasant at night.
Festivals and events Held in the fortifications of Kotor, Bokeska Noc in the third week of August sees outdoor celebrations lasting through to the early morning. The Days of Wine and Fish in Virpazar on Skadar Lake is great fun – very local, very crowded, and lots of fish and wine!
