During the 1970s, Montenegro was an Adriatic playground for the rich and famous, attracting A-list names like Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren. While its tourism suffered during the Yugoslav Wars, today Montenegro is reestablishing itself as a chic and glamorous destination. Bordered by Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Albania, this tiny sovereign state boasts natural beauty and a diverse landscape. Montenegro’s coastline is covered with historic walled towns, sandy coves and water, while the interior boasts mountain scenery (Montenegro actually means “Black Mountain”), clear lakes and deep canyons. For visitors who enjoy the great outdoors, Montenegro won’t disappoint with its opportunities for hiking, kayaking, whitewater rafting, mountain biking or skiing, or simply relaxing on one of its beautiful beaches.
