The UK’s Love the Mountains magazine has recommended Montenegro as one of the popular destinations for the long-awaited return to travel, describing it as “the rising star of the Med”, which is drawing a lot of attention for active outdoor holidays with its miles of beaches, rolling hills and mountainous regions to explore.
With five national parks, 294 km of coastline and one of the deepest canyons in Europe, it’s ideal for those who love a good stroll with their sightseeing.
“Spanning an area approximately the same size as Northern Ireland, this Balkans treasure packs a lot into its offerings and is the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation,” the article says.
The magazine particularly recommends visiting old coastal towns, including Kotor, Budva, Bar, Herceg Novi and Cetinje, as they offer a unique look into Montenegro’s history through architecture, landmarks and cultural institutions.
“The Bay of Kotor is renowned for its spectacular scenery – towering cliffs plunging into tranquil, deep blue waters. Inland, Lovćen National Park is ideal for a day trip and home to the mausoleum of Petar II at the top of the mountain.”
Love the Mountains considers Montenegro well-situated for holidaymakers looking for sun, sea and the warm breeze in the late summer/early autumn from the Adriatic.
