Montenegro is emerging from the shadow of Yugoslavia and began to be admired for the beauty that is. No longer must visitors think they will fall by the edge of the world when traveling east beyond Dubrovnik. Sapphire blue Adriatic Sea Croatia does continue. But here is supported by a steep mountain range of gray, leaving enough room for a strip of coastal cities in a sweep of sandy beaches and small coves stretching to the border with Albania.
Historic walled towns as Stari Bar, Budva, Kotor and Herceg Novi are ideal for exploring, and anywhere along the coast you can find private rooms in a rest-away village by the sea. The interior is a setting of spectacular mountains, crowned with pine forests dotted with lakes and dizzying marked by deep canyons. The highest region, the Durmitor National Park is a favorite for winter skiing and summer hiking in a pristine mountain scenery, while Tara canyon deep down, beams intrepid defied their rapid fall. So much for a small country – the world’s newest nation.
While only 293 miles long, the packages off the coast of Montenegro in some of the best coastline of the Adriatic has to offer. From the border with Albania, endless sandy beaches, interspersed with small coves of fishing boats floating, carried all the way to a dramatic end of the fjord of Kotor on the border with Croatia.
Kotor, with its picturesque walled city located in front of the deepest fjords of southern Europe has a more dramatic setting of Montenegro. In a gloomy climate of the atmosphere becomes all dark shades of Wagner and cut the fingers of sunlight, while on a sunny day the wind-waves in the water sheen purple. Stari Grad (Old Town), located in the lee of a mountain, is a maze of cobblestone streets linking small boxes that contain the old churches and ancient aristocratic mansions.
