We suggest you check with venues before visiting for the latest information.
Welcome to Montenegro

I still remember the sheer thrill I felt when driving around the breathtakingly beautiful Bay of Kotor for the first time – and each time I return, so does that thrill. Montenegro is a country of incredible (ie almost unbelievable) vistas, from the craggy mountains of the north to the cerulean seas of the south. To me it’s at its very best on long summer evenings when the streets of its picturesque historic towns and villages fill up with people, young and old, enjoying the age-old ritual of a leisurely stroll, stopping every few paces to greet friends and neighbours.

Montenegro’s Top Experiences

1 ROMANTIC STREETSCAPES
Ancient stone towns set alongside azure waters abound along the Montenegrin coast. The walls and towers may have been built for practical purposes, but the effect is achingly romantic. Although the Venetians were booted out over 200 years ago, the influence of their tenure as overlords has bequeathed elegant architecture that wouldn’t be out of place in the watery city itself.

Kotor
Time-travel back to a Europe of moated walled towns with shadowy lanes and stone churches on every square. The way Kotor’s Old Town seems to grow out of the sheer grey mountains surrounding it adds an extra thrill to the scene.

Kotor’s Old Town | ALEKSEI GOLOVANOV/SHUTTERSTOCK ©

Perast
An oversized village comprised almost entirely of elegant baroque palaces and churches, pretty Perast forms a worthy centrepiece to the Bay of Kotor. The positioning is perfect, sitting at the apex of the inner bay looking straight down the narrow channel leading to the outer section.

Marina, Perast | BORIS STROUJKO/SHUTTERSTOCK ©

Budva’s Stari Grad
Budva’s walled Stari Grad (Old Town) rises from the Adriatic like a miniature Dubrovnik. There’s an atmosphere of romance and a typically Mediterranean love of life palpable around every corner. When it’s time to relax, there’s a beach on either side.

Top Experiences
2 ASTONISHING VIEWS
The country has a mountain in its name, so it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of lofty vantage points. The Dinaric Alps stretch through almost the entire country, at times dipping their feet in the Adriatic. A highlight of Montenegro is the simple joy of travelling along its many scenic routes, taking in the beauty and power of the landscape.

The Kotor–Lovćen Road
The serpentine road connecting Kotor with Lovćen National Park loops up and up, providing ever more jaw-dropping views over the Bay of Kotor. Vistas of mountains and blue water compensate for any white-knuckle moments caused by the narrow road and its sheer drops.

Lovćen National Park | STEPO DINARICUS/SHUTTERSTOCK ©

Njegoš Mausoleum
The second-highest peak of Mt Lovćen is the final resting place for 19th-century Montenegrin ruler Petar II Petrović Njegoš . The simple but affecting structure and monumental statuary do little to distract from the remarkable views over all of Old Montenegro.

Njegoš Mauseoleum | SUPERFLO/SHUTTERSTOCK ©

Sveti Stefan
The postcard-perfect fortified island village of Sveti Stefan is a wonder to behold as you drive along the coastal highway. Soak in those views, as the island itself is currently closed to nonguests of its resort.

Top Experiences
3 BEAUTIFUL BEACHES
Let’s be honest, the opportunity to laze about beside crystal-clear waters is the main reason why tourists descend on Montenegro every summer. The entire coast is a scant 100km long as the crow flies, so the beaches can get a tad busy. If it’s buzz you’re after, you’ll find that easily enough. Quieter nooks are harder to come by but beauty isn’t in short supply.

Lučice
Lined with cypress trees and oleanders, and with picturesque church-topped islets offshore, Lučice is a Mediterranean dream. It’s reached by a short walk along forest paths from the resort town of Petrovac.

Ada Bojana
One of the few places where you might get a stretch of sand to yourself, this 3km-long island at the southern tip of the country is connected to the mainland by a bridge. The catch: the entire island is clothing optional.

Drobni Pijesak
Green hills and turquoise waters frame this secluded cove , hidden from view below the coastal road.

Top Experiences
4 TRANQUIL LAKES
Montenegro’s mighty mountains come with their own mirrors courtesy of some commensurately impressive lakes. Hiking tracks circle some of them, while others can be explored by boat or kayak. In contrast to the bustling Adriatic beaches, there’s plenty of tranquillity to be found in the remote reaches of the national parks that surround them. They are also extremely important habitats for native wildlife.

Lake Skadar
Shared between Montenegro and Albania, the Balkans’ largest lake is home to an extraordinary array of birdlife. On the Montenegrin side, a national park encompasses island monasteries, fortresses and old stone villages famous for their wine.

Durmitor’s ‘Mountain Eyes’
Reflecting the beauty of the Durmitor range’s imposing grey peaks are 18 glacial lakes known as gorske oči (mountain eyes). The largest and most beautiful is the Black Lake near Žabljak.

Lake Biograd
Peaceful Lake Biograd is surrounded by one of Europe’s most significant remaining tracts of virgin forest, nestled within the folds of the Bjelasica Mountains.

Top Experiences
5 WILD ADVENTURES
Montenegro has a wild side that lends itself to all manner of outdoor pursuits for the adventurous at heart. With such a diverse landscape crammed into such a small space, it’s quite possible to go from river deep (rafting, canyoning) to mountain high (hiking, climbing, skiing, paragliding) and then plunge straight into the sea (diving, kitesurfing, parasailing). In any case, you won’t get bored.

Rafting the Tara River
It’s hard to get a decent view of the beautiful Tara Canyon , with its sheer tree-lined walls, up to 1300m high. It is most impressive from the water, which helps to explain the popularity of rafting.

Skiing in Kolašin
The swankiest of Montenegro’s ski resorts lies just off the main highway heading north from the capital.

Hiking the Prokletije Mountains
They’re called the ‘ Accursed Mountains ’ but for hikers and climbers this rugged range in Montenegro’s far east leans more to the divine than the damned.

Top Experiences
6 HEAVENLY ARCHITECTURE
Montenegro’s three main faiths (Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Islam) have left a legacy of architectural and artistic treasures all over the country. While Catholic churches are concentrated around the Bay of Kotor and Budva, and mosques in the north and east, there are Orthodox monasteries dotted all around – many of them in blissfully remote settings such as high up mountains, on tiny islands and alongside river canyons.

Ulcinj’s Many Mosques
There’s a special buzz to Ulcinj , Montenegro’s southernmost town – and
