5 reasons to visit Montenegro for your holiday

Montenegro needs to be your next holiday destination. Located in the South-east of Europe and situated on the Adriatic Coast, Montenegro is small country, but as the saying goes – good things come in small packages!  Montenegro offers incredible landscapes, fascinating history, rich culture and delicious cuisine!

Lord Byron, a famous Romantic poet, eloquently stated

“At the birth of the planet the most beautiful encounter between land and sea must have been on the Montenegrin coast.” 

Here’s our 5 reasons to visit Montenegro for your holiday.

1. Abundance of Beautiful Beaches

Sun seekers will be spoilt for choice. Montenegro has 117 beaches, many of which have Blue Flags, along the Adriatic coast.

2. It has a Fjord!

The Boka Bay (Boka Kotorska, also known as the Gulf of Kotor) is one of the most distinctive landscapes anywhere on the Mediterranean. You can enjoy seeing the southernmost fjord in Europe by taking a boat trip and explore the Bay.

3. Historic Sights

With a country that was once ruled by the Byzantine, Ottomans and was once part of Yugoslavia, undoubtedly Montenegro has a fascinating historical past. Kotor is a well-preserved Medieval Old Town and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the town, you will find Kotor Cathedral or St Tryphon’s Cathedral, which is older than Notre Dame in Paris. Boasting a stunning location on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, the medieval walled city of Budva is home to an impressive selection of Catholic and Orthodox churches, picturesque squares, and an imposing Citadel fortress. 

4. Diverse Food and Drink

Montenegrin dishes are a variation of Mediterranean and Oriental cuisine. Over the centuries there has been influences from different countries, namely by Italy, Greece and Turkey on Montenegrin cuisine. It’s based on great tasting, locally produced ingredients, seasonal vegetables and seafood. The cuisine even varies throughout the country, with an increased focus on seafood in coastal areas. 

5. Stunning scenery

Montenegro roughly translates as “Black Mountain”, many believe this name derives from the appearance of the thick forests surrounding Mount Lovćen.  For outdoor or hiking enthusiasts, Montenegro boasts five impressive National Parks. The country also has one of Europe’s deepest canyons, 1300m deep, the Tara River Canyon/Gorge. You can also journey through the spectacular Serpentine Mountain Road built in the late 19th century, connecting Kotor and Njegusi, the birthplace of the famous dynasty Petrovic.
