The Holidays

Montenegro offers you whatever kind of holiday you’d like – whether you want activity, adventure, culture or just lazing by the sea with a book. This tiny country really has it all in one place.

And with three international airports servicing it, it’s really easy to get here. In fact, this country has so much to offer and is so easy to get around, like all of our visitors, you’ll be sure to start planning your next visit before you’ve even finished this one.  

After living here for more than five years and having crossed the country from top to bottom, we're still finding new ways to be surprised by this country. 

Every year we find a new hidden beach, a new breathtaking view or a new activity that makes the most of the country’s stunning landscape.

The compact size of the country means that you can travel from one end to the other, from sea to mountains and back in a day. At certain times of year you can even make a snowman in the morning and swim in the Adriatic Sea in the afternoon.

the beauty

Whether you are lazing on one of the many beaches with the azure Adriatic lapping at your feet or are hiking a ridge in one of five national parks, Montenegro's natural beauty will take your breath away.

The Venetian old towns and palaces that line the coasts with imposing mountain backdrops give you stunning views wherever you go.

The People

Aside from the dramatic landscapes, the warmth of the people will draw you in. Always quick to share a joke - be it in English, Montenegrin or hand gestures, Montenegrins will leave you in no doubt that you are welcome. Their hospitality is second to none and guests are traditionally loosened up with a shot of rakija, the local brandy that is made by most families.

With an alcohol content of between 40% and 60%, you will be loosened up.

The Food

The local fare ranges from fresh-caught seafood in the coastal regions to hearty, meat-based dishes in the north of the country.

And all of it is good.

Red is the wine of choice for most and like rakija, families traditionally make their own each year.

We recommend forgetting any kind of diet and trying a bit of everything!
