About Montenegro

Montenegro

There are few places in the world as picturesque as Montenegro. If one word should be used to describe it - “magical” - would surely be on the top of the list. It is packed with natural and cultural beauties in an area that could be easily driven across in a day, and yet explored for months.
Montenegro has much to offer – from dramatic cost of the Bay of Kotor, across to the spectacular beaches of the Budva Riviera to the unspoiled nature of its 5 national parks. Relaxing on the beach, sailing, hiking, rafting, exploring history, partying - it is all there.
Starting from the northern tip of the coast, there is charming town Herceg- Novi from which unique Bay of Kotor unfolds as a magical world of its own with its crown jewel - the ancient town of Kotor.
Following Kotor, there comes Tivat, which, thanks to Porto Montenegro – a luxury marina with berths big enough to accommodate the world’s largest private yachts, is fast becoming a world’s top up scale destination.
Further on follows the Budva Riviera which pride itself on the great beaches of Montenegro and the lively nightlife and club scene of Budva, is great for those looking for more excitement.
Another unforgettable destination is Ostrog, an isolated Serbian Orthodox monastery sited, imposingly, against virtually vertical cliff face in the center of the country, near Niksic. The monastery, the resting place of Saint Vasilije (Basil) of Ostrog, attracts a constant inflow of pilgrims from Montenegro, the region and beyond.
From the coast you can easily turn inland to explore the UNESCO natural heritage Durmitor National Park and Tara Canyon, Europe’s deepest canyon, or spend the day visiting the Mausoleum at Mount Lovcen, or get back to nature with a quiet walk around Lake Skadar.
Finally, Croatia’s walled city of Dubrovnik and Bosnia-Herzegovina’s fabulous Mostar, both UNESCO world heritage sites are similarly close by and perfect destinations for one day excursions.
We hope all this will tickle your imagination to chose Montenegro and Đenovići as your next holiday destination and you will see why this country is truly the jewel of the Adriatic.

About history in few lines

Montenegro or Crna Gora means “black mountain” and used to refer to the area around Mountain Lovcen – the black mountain itself. The area was inhabited by christian population that withdrew from an Ottoman invasion to a medieval state of Zeta, the fertile area around the Lake Skadar. The Black Mountain, ruled by prince bishops remained unconquered during centuries of Ottoman domination of the Balkan peninsula, and used the decline of Ottoman power to enlarge its territory and to establish itself as a kingdom.
Turbulent history up to the kingdom, led to an equally turbulent 20th century. After First World War Montenegro became part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenians, later to be called Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The kingdom of Yugoslavia period, were followed by Italian and German occupation during the Second World War, and then almost 40 years of communism.
Montenegrins were prominent in both the Partisan resistance and the subsequent regime of Josip Broz Tito. Thanks to Tito’s non-alignment policy and the relative openness of Yugoslav communism, tourism flourished along the Adriatic coast.
In recent times, Montenegro regained elements of sovereignty during the 1990s Yugoslav breakup and embarked to path of transition to democracy. It stayed temporarily in a loose union with Serbia, but the foundations were laid for independence. Finally, independence was achieved through a peaceful referendum in 2006. Today, Montenegro is pursuing economic and judicial reforms with the goal of joining the European Union.
