With mountains immerging from crystal-clear waters, Montenegro’s captivating coastline along the Adriatic Sea has cemented its emerging status as a luxury destination. This Balkan country has a rich and multicultural history, with open-armed locals willing to show you the true meaning of hospitality and winding cobbled streets of walled medieval towns, including UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kotor. But once you’ve had your fill of Roman villas, majestic mosques and Orthodox monasteries, as well as some exquisite cuisine, you can immerse yourself in Montenegro’s more secluded wonders. There are limestone peaks to climb, glacial lakes to admire and rafting along the Tara River in Durmitor National Park. Next, lose yourself in the primeval forest of Biogradska Gora or witness unparalleled views from the peak of Njegoš Mausoleum. Home to bears, wolves and Europe’s largest bird sanctuary, it’s no wonder Montenegro’s wilderness is also considered a paradise for nature-lovers.
