Montenegro or the 'Black Mountain'. The mere name of this country evokes both mystery and romance; this fascinating territory far from disappoints its visitors. A destination often favoured by mountain lovers, most of Montenegro is covered by forest. But it's also home to the Adriatic Sea, with Big Beach that stretches for 14 km long, the UNESCO classified old town of Kotor, as well as the much celebrated Budva. From north to south, a wealth of sights and sounds await the visitor. To the north and east, you've got the Durmitor and Prokletyes National Parks, both incredibly beautiful and where you'll be trudging through snow in the morning yet going for a dip later in the day! Daily life remains traditional and many farmers still live without electricity - but that doesn't mean the welcome isn't warm. Lake Skadar, meanwhile, is the largest lake in the Balkans, extending as far as Albania. A migration hotspot, there's no better place to spot hundreds of different bird species in the dawn's early light. Medigovići, Perast, the Gulf of Kotor, are just some other places that will make your trip to Montenegro a truly unforgettable experience.
