It doesn’t matter what you look for in your travels when you’re in Montenegro. Mountains roll into seaside resorts, neighboured by medieval cities.

Montenegro is absolutely saturated with impressive landscapes, history, culture and much, much more.

Why visit Montenegro:

If Montenegro isn’t yet on your European bucket list, it really should be.

Montenegro is the kind of destination that will impress even the most well-travelled explorers. It doesn’t matter how many stamps are in your passport – it’s impossible not to be impressed by Montenegro’s varied lands.

It’s what makes Montenegro one of the best road trip destinations in all of Europe. With your own set of wheels, you’ll have all the time you need to stop along the way. And, with so many incredible views and sights all over, you’ll certainly want to.

Montenegro is still relatively unknown. Aside from Kotor, very few tourists venture into this part of the Balkans. It means Montenegro still feels very untouched, and adds an extra level of mystique for travellers who do visit Montenegro.
