Montenegro is a country rich in contrasts that has a lot to offer as one of Europe’s most versatile holiday destinations: sunny beaches, snow-covered mountains, endless highlands and deep gorges, turquoise rivers and tranquil glacier lakes as well as ancient coastal towns and rustic mountain villages. The “land of wild beauty” has developed into a travel destination for explorers. Nature lovers, bird watchers and botanists find a multifaceted flora and fauna in the five natural parks of the country. For cultural enthusiasts a visit to the medieval towns, monasteries, churches and mosques is rewarding, while sun worshippers can relax on the Adriatic coast. Active holidaymakers, too, will find in Montenegro what they are looking for. Rafting tours through the deepest canyon of Europe, trails to the Dinarid summits, canyoning and fishing adventures are immensely popular with outdoor activists.
