The Guardian on Montenegro: The path to wild beauty is worth it

Vintage mountain trains, electric road trips and solar-powered yachts, plus an eco beach house in Sicily…

In a recent article, the Guardian explores the best holiday destinations in Europe for those longing for nature, but also for those who are environmentally conscious.

The article underscores that all the destinations are reasonably priced. Among the featured getaways is Montenegro, which has appeared many times in this renowned newspaper. Not surprisingly, Montenegro is mentioned in the context of unspoiled nature and a marvellous fusion between the mountains and the sea. This has led the Guardian to recommend Montenegro as one of the top 20 destinations to its readers, especially to those who are fond of adventure instead of luxury hotels.

“There are many authentic pockets of life, and plenty of striking scenery along Montenegro’s coast – with jagged mountains and forest close to lively seaside towns. From here you can easily reach the capital city of Podgorica and continue your journey with a ride on the Bar-Belgrade railway through the stunning mountains, only to get to Belgrade in just one night,“ the article reads.

The list of top 20 sustainable destinations includes Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Italian Tuscay, Belgium, Greece… All of them offer a different, authentic tourism product, which is Montenegro’s special asset.
