Montenegro (Crna Gora; abbr. MNE) is one of the newest and smallest countries in the world. Part of former Yugoslavia, Montenegro voted for independence in 2006, and has since been envisioning and building its future.
This South European hidden gem is one of the most diverse countries in the world. Montenegro is mountains and coastline packed into a 3-hour cross-country drive.
The country can be divided into 3 parts: the coastline, central region, and northern mountainous area of the country. In the coastal region, there is a range of types of cities, beaches, and travelers. In these coastal areas, the mountains back up tight to the city or beaches below. In the central region, the past and current capital cities can be found. The cities here are rich in history and they represent the larger populous and commercial areas of the country. The northern mountainous region is sparsely populated with a scattering of smaller towns and it is filled with mountains and massifs. This area has multiple opportunities for adventure travel in the winter and warm-weather months.
