by Don

Montenegro is becoming a popular choice for European holidaymakers looking for an authentic destination that incorporates luxury and culture of the ’older Europe’. Montenegro is a small country in the Southeastern part of Europe with a population of merely 670,000 inhabitants. It has a coast lineon the Adriatic Sea to the south-west making it popular as a watersport holiday destination and is bordered by Croatia to the west, Bosnia and Herzegovina to the northwest.

Perhaps the biggest attraction is the wealth of dramatic scenery that Montenegro has to offer. Few countries can boast mild beaches, clear lakes, fast rivers, and gorgeous mountains in such a small confined place. It means that holidaymakers visiting can experience many attractions to cater for different taste.

If you are considering Montenegro as a future destination, consider the following attractions many of which are world heritage sites.

National Park Durmitor – Of the four national parks in Montenegro, the National Park Durmitor is the most popular one due to its unspoiled natural beauty. Various activities are offered from hiking, biking, mountaineering, walking, swimming, skiing, bungee jumping, rafting and the list goes on and on.

Sveti Stefan (St Stephen) – A visit to Montenegro without visiting the Island Sveti Stefan is incomplete.  It is a fashionable summer vacation hotpot that celebrities from Sophia Loren, Sylvester Stallone, to Queen Elizabeth II and many others have called their summer vacation destination…But you don’t have to be a celebrity to visit

Porto Montenegro – This marina features hotels and restaurants, shopping, water sports and leisure facilities overlooking an average modern fleet of 600yachts including the largest super yachts in Europe that choose to dock at this former Yugoslav naval facility. Close by you will find the Bay of Kotor an UNESCO World Heritage site, featuring the largest natural harbour in the eastern Mediterranean.

Perast in Boka Bay – After visiting Kotor, you can head just a few miles to Perast. It is a charming little town featuring rich culture and historic architecture. In particular do not miss many of the costal restaurants found at Perast that feature seafood and fish specialties taken fresh from the sea.
