Montenegro wasn’t always high on my European bucket list. Actually, I probably didn’t even become aware of it as a summer destination in Europe until a couple of years ago, despite visiting nearby Croatia!
Montenegro only became an independent country in 2006, and since then they’ve been working hard to establish their reputation as a unique place to visit in Europe. I’d have to say they’ve been succeeding, and I can only imagine the popularity of Montenegro will continue to take off! From the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic Sea and the UNESCO World Heritage city of Kotor in the south to the mountainous Tara Canyon and Dorminghejg National Park in the north, Montenegro has a lot to offer.
How long should you stay in Montenegro?

In the Bay of Kotor off the Adriatic Sea, you will see something that will make you check your eyes.
The name Yugoslavia still invokes images of the horrible civil war that tore up this region in southeastern Europe in the 1990s. Things have calmed down, however, and the ex-Yugoslavian countries have opened their borders to foreign visitors. Some have even become members of the European Union. This is a culturally rich and historically significant part of Europe, shown in the abundance of great former Yugoslavia UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
A Complicated Region
Literally meaning “South Slavia”, Yugoslavia came into existence after the First World War. Named after the South Slavic people who lived in the region, this was those people’s first independent union after centuries of occupation by the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian Empires. After the Second World War, it became a communist country, ruled by the Partisan president Josep Broz Tito.
This just moved to the top of your bucket list.
Kotor is, without a doubt, the most beautiful city in Montenegro, if not the Balkans.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the most beautiful waterside settlements in the world.
