Explore the untouched beauty of Montenegro. Sandwiched between Croatia in the north and Albania in the south – all three countries having a coastline in the Mediterranean and Adriatic sea, Montenegro has a variety of jaw dropping landscapes that would surprise anyone.
Next to the Croatia border are the Montenegro Fjords around the city of Kotor where the cruise ships sail down. Moving along the coastline where the mountains meet the sea with spectacular cliffs to the north and enjoy sandy beaches down in the south. The rugged landscape inland along windy roads and stunning scenery lead you to Lake Skadar is where Albania and Montenegro meet with a dramatic mountain range. Inland to the north there are the Durmittor Mountains where you can ski in winter! Where we are located in a village called Stari Bar we are close enough to enjoy a whole day hike up the highest mountain in Montenegro – Rumija. With views of fjords and the sea on one side and the rolling hills on the other.
There really is something for every holiday preference in this untouched country. They use the currency the Euro but are not part of Europe yet, so the holiday maker can benefit from affordable pricing, unlike its sister country Croatia.
Stari Bar is also a quaint small village steeped in history with a fort to explore and cosy restaurants to relax in. And we mustn’t forget the wild swimming pools that each hike leads to.
