ABOUT MONTENEGRO


ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MONTENEGRO

Montenegro is certainly one of the most interesting places in the world. Rich in history and culture, and abounding in spectacular natural beauty, this destination epitomizes the unique and undiscovered.

It covers solely around 14.000 km2 and has only about 670.000 citizens, yet its natural splendor and contribution to the world cultural heritage is astounding.
