While Montenegro’s northwestern neighbor Croatia has been getting a lot of attention lately, there’s plenty to see and do right here, from magnificent seaside scenery to looming mountains and plenty of interesting history. Discover its past through walled medieval Old Towns, the mosaic floors of Roman villas, mosques with elegant minarets, grand palaces, majestic cathedrals, vibrantly painted monasteries, and castles.
Visitors will find many ways to get active while surrounded by the scenery, including off-the-beaten-path hikes in the rugged mountains of Prokletije and Durmitor, along with opportunities for mountain biking, horseback riding, and kayaking. And, after all those activities and sightseeing, you’ll find plenty of mouthwatering Mediterranean cuisine.
