Highly Recommended

Montenegro is the perfect place to take a group tour and escape the hectic buzz of the day to day. With a population of just over 600,000 people, the country is a gorgeous hideaway steeped in natural beauty and peaceful spots to relax.

Rugged mountains, medieval villages and a narrow strip of beaches along its Adriatic coastline, Montenegro has some of Europe’s most spectacular scenery. Tucked between Croatia, Serbia and Albania and around two-thirds of the size of Wales, Montenegro punches above its weight when it comes to natural beauty.

Mountains rise sharply from the crystal-clear waters below, creating a breathtaking setting waiting to be explored. In summer, the whole scene is bathed in the scent of wild herbs, conifers and Mediterranean blossoms.

Explore Montenegro, a pearl of the Adriatic

Hidden gems are around every corner. From the palace of King Nicolas to the quaint village of Njegusi, famous for it’s local cheese, there is no shortage of activities to be explored. Furthermore, from your base in Tivat, you will be perfectly located to explore Montenegro.

The breathtaking fjord-like bays encompassing the Bay of Kotor seem a world away from the rest of Europe – hidden peacefully between the folding canyons. Resting gently within the embrace of the sparkling water is the Our Lady of The Rocks monastery. According to the legends, the man-made islet just off the coast of Perast gradually rose from the sea as sailors laid rocks at the site to celebrate their return from sea voyages.

The Dolphin-shaped Lake Skadar, the largest in the Balkans region, is among Montenegro’s most alluring and peaceful attractions. Boats pass out into the vast expanse of the lake, the noise of their engines disappearing into the distance before they leave sight. It is the perfect foil to Dubrovnik further up the coast in Croatia – a bustling medieval city of grand stone fortifications and marbled streets with a distinctly different aura.

From the Roman Empire to the Eastern Bloc: Discover Montenegro’s rich history

Despite the Roman Empire splitting in two 1600 years ago, Montenegro has been caught between east and west ever since. You will see the richness of this culturally diverse history everywhere. The beauty of the mosaic floors of Roman villas are contrasted by the sturdy fortresses built to protect these lands from invaders. Likewise Budva, thought to be one of the oldest urban centres in the Adriatic is perfect to explore and you will find more gems on your guided tours.

Furthermore, the legacy of 50 years as communist state, independent of both the Eastern Bloc and the West can be seen the cities of Montenegro. For those looking to discover all parts of European history, this is the place to be.

Montenegro is quietly one of Europe’s most unique spots, with beautiful beach locations intertwined with complex historic sites and striking natural beauty.
