Surrounded by high mountains, bordered by the clear sea, Montenegro is proud country of glorious past and great poets. Its greatest ruler and poet Petar Petrovic Njegos in his famous play “Ray of microcosm” has written “who can impose a limit of desire” And actually there is no limit to extraordinary beauty you will meet from its costal up to its continental and mountain landscape. However you reach Montenegro, through whichever”door” you enter, you will encounter intact nature and be welcomed by hospitable, proud and friendly people. If you are docked in bright morning or misty down at Kotor port, you will feel yourself part of the renaissance masterpiece paint. On the horizon in front of you a picturesque coast will appear - gentle, with sandy beaches and hundreds of years old olive groves, but also wild, with mountains which reach the sky as if guarding both the coast and old towns. The medieval fortresses and church domes of coastal towns tell the passenger that he has reached the right destination, a peaceful harbor and resting place after a long journey. While you dock in Kotor or Perast, you will be using the same moorings used by the ships and yachts of European kings and princes who have been enchanted by the magnificent beauty of Montenegro. Seventy-three kilometers of the best combination of sun, sea and coast - 117 beaches spread along the Montenegrin coast, offer different opportunities even for the pickiest of quests. The summer season in Montenegro lasts from May until October – 180 days of swimming! And, 240 sunny days during the year! Just ask yourself – on which kind of beach would you like to rest, on a sandy, pebble or stony beach? Perhaps on the same one the royal family used to swim long ago, on the ”Queen’s Beach” in Milocer? Did you know that the quality of the sand of the beaches of the Budvanska Riviera belong to the world’s highest category? You wouldn't come amiss if choose a discrete, small beach in some sheltered cove that can be reached only by boat. Then again, if you wish to completely surrender to the sun and sea, go to the nudist beach Ada Bojana Or just go sightseeing old Kotor town protected as World Natural Heritage by UNESCO which three doors are opened to lead you through old, preserved town where history of great sailors, tradition of colorful carnivals and famous Boka marine soldiers still live its own story, despite the centuries left by. If you arrive by plane, you will see the snow covered mountain peaks and ”the mountain eyes”, the Black Lake or one of the 17 other lakes on the mountain of Durmitor, framed by meadows and centuries-old forests, the deep canyons of clear rivers, including the deepest one in Europe - canyon of the river Tara... The landscapes that have been included in the list of the World Natural Heritage by UNESCO are also visible from the airplane. You will also see the foaming line of the Adriatic coast and a dark blue sea of coves and bays.
Whichever land route you choose to take to Montenegro, by train or car, you will have a unique opportunity to enjoy magnificent scenery of intact nature, like Biogradska gora, the last remaining virgin forest in Europe, ”King’s Forest” and national park founded as early as 1878 by King Nikola, only six years after the United States of America had founded Yellowstone, the world’s first national park. You will be able to see strong, fast and clear rivers, which have been carving shady mountains for centuries, creating vivid canyons. As unique scenery, you will see the 1300 meter deep canyon of the River Tara, the deepest one in Europe, second in the world after the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River in America. If you wish to stop and rest – to fill your lungs with clean air, and your eyes with the beautiful landscape, many belvederes or meadows located on plateau, places of peace and serenity are waiting for you... On any one of the 18 lakes of the Durmitor Mountains, the Black Lake, Vrazje or Zminje Lake..., or in Prokletije, on the River Lim springs from, enjoy the beauty! Meet rare animal species that you can otherwise only find in books. If you come across Skadar Lake, the largest one in the Balkans, you should know that you come to the last habitat of pelicans in Europe, the largest bird reserve in the old continent.
There is hardly a place in Montenegro that in this way or another, with a monument or building, legend or some high-sounding name of a forest, peak or region, does not reflect the rich history of this territory. River Crnojevica old, royal settlement, Monestery Ostrog which is true wonder of the nature since being settled into high cliffs represents the meeting place of all confessions: the Orthodox, the Catholics and the Muslims and there are still countless wonders on this small territory of Crna Gora - Montenegro.
