For such a teeny tiny country, Montenegro really packs a punch.
With an area of less than 14,000 square-kilometres and a population under 650,000 people, it’s one of the smallest countries in the Balkans. And yet Montenegro has somehow still managed to squeeze dramatic mountains and canyons, the lion’s share of the region’s biggest lake, a beautiful stretch of Adriatic coastline and of course the iconic Bay of Kotor into its borders.
From peak to shore, Montenegro is without a doubt one of the most beautiful countries in the region. The irony, of course, is that the capital is known for being one of the most unappealing cities in Europe… But even ugly duckling Podgorica has its charms!
Here is my list of the most beautiful places in Montenegro, as explored on our recent 10-day road trip.
