Declared independent from Serbia in 2006, the small country of Montenegro features the best of both summer and winter vacation possibilities, including fabulous beaches.
Because of its geographical diversity—the Adriatic Sea lies at its southern border, and 70 mountain peaks are scattered inland—Montenegro's landscape varies tremendously, creating a great opportunity to explore many natural phenomena, including deep canyons, caves, lakes and bays, sandy beaches and the sea.
Montenegro has been a popular tourist destination for many years. Previously, vacationers from the former Yugoslavia populated the area heavily; more recently, visitors from Germany, the Czech Republic, Russia, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom frequent the region.
The country is known for its friendly locals and for its well-organized holiday resorts. Montenegro's currency is the euro, which is readily available and makes shopping and traveling within the country easy for visitors.
Since its independence, Montenegro has been developing its tourist industry rapidly and renovating its infrastructure, including roads, buildings and public utilities.
Travelers who are looking for a quieter, yet still active, tourist destination will enjoy Montenegro.
