Montenegro may be a bite-sized country, but its historical cities and heritage forests are nothing short of idyllic.

Often overlooked by mainstream travellers, yet long-considered a regional gem, Montenegro is a country of old-world charm and soaring green peaks. Its capital Dubrovnik, the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic,’ still lies behind walls built over a thousand years ago. The equally ancient, red-roofed town of Kotor is tucked within a fjord-like river canyon, and might well epitomize this country’s stunning scenery. It’s no wonder Montenegro is fast becoming Europe’s favourite getaway.
