With a population of a bigger European’s city suburb (650.000), Montegro is an enchanting little country full of extreme geographical diversities.
Great mountains with snow peaks, steep fiord-like hills almost vertically diving into the Adriatic sea, mountain lakes full of fish, mystical monasteries carved in the solid rock, sandy and sunny beaches that go on for miles alongside the coast.That is all Montenegro.
