When people think of Europe, the first countries that come to their minds are states like France, Italy, and England — you know, the classics. But you might want to broaden some horizons and start thinking of Montenegro. This little country is the European gem you never knew you wanted to visit.
No summer vacation is complete without a visit to a nice sandy beach, and Montenegro has just that. The Montenegro shoreline is more than 77 miles long and is frequently visited by Europeans who know what’s good in life.
The cities of Budva and Bečići have a couple of the most beautiful beaches of the Adriatic. The one in Bečići is two kilometers long (about a mile and a half) so you’re sure to find your own spot there to work on your tan.
Before you get tempted to spend all of your time on the beach, leave yourself some time to visit the wild nature of Montenegro. Tourists (and obviously locals) would do well to explore some of its beautiful valleys, clear lakes, and breathtaking mountains.
There are numerous nature reserves you can visit, each one better than the other! The Lovcen reserve is one of the most famous reserves in the country and even serves as the historical symbol of Montenegro. You can hike through the different paths, and even climb to the top of Lovcen Mountain if you’re feeling adventurous.
The streets of Montenegro may seem ancient on the outside, but the inside has all the modern comforts you can think of. Tourists do most of their shopping in small boutiques rather than big shopping malls. Also, those interested in getting a more authentic feel of the place would enjoy a visit to the flea market in Budva or a stroll through the different stands on the promenade.
Montenegro’s nightlife scene is incredible. Anyone interested in a party is sure to find one in close proximity. Music, DJs, and karaoke parties are sure to keep you up at night in the best way possible.
