Mountain chains are neverending! Canyons are frighteningly deep (Tara canyon is 2nd deepest in the world after the Grand Canyon)!
Roads are nerve-breaking! Tunnels outnumber inhabitants...
The above photo best illustrates 90% of the country --> mountains wherever you look!!! Although from lower altitudes mountain ranges might look frightening,
view from peaks is awesome and worth all the sweating and sore muscles :)))
During my 10-day stay, I based myself in Podgorica because I was staying with a friend there. If you don't have a good friend there, you have hardly any reason to visit the capital (unles you want to see what a place not worth visiting looks like). Sad, but true.
Where to go, what to see? Montenegrin coastline is 293 km long with 73 km of beaches. Budva is probably the most famous seaside resort, Ulcinj has the most beautiful beach (13 km long).
There are twice as many Belgrade car plates as all others combined meaning that tourists from Belgrade set trends. If you like Serbian turbo folk music and glittery clothes, then you'll like most seaside resorts, esp Budva. I'm no fan of such lifestyle and the seaside did not appeal to me particularly.
Montenegrin interior is the real jewel of the country. Mountains, canyons, monasteries and the town of Cetinje are in my opinion much more worth of your time and money. During hot summer days (and nights!), a stay in the mountains can be double rewarding. Tourist brouchures will tell you that an average air temperature in summer is 27,4 C, but my experience was 39 C and up, esp in Podgorica.
- Pros:Beautiful nature
- Cons:Poor infrastructure (roads, accomodation)
CASH! Don't be silly like me – I had a friend who advised me to leave my cards at home, but I found it hard to believe... more travel advice
