Montenegro is a Balkan country with rugged mountains, medieval villages and a narrow strip of beaches along its Adriatic coastline. Podgorica Airport is Montenegro's main international airport. It is situated 12km (7.5 miles) south of Podgorica.
Montenegro may be small in terms of area, but it boasts stunning mountainous landscapes, dramatic coast lines, historic monuments and truly beautiful walled towns. The Montenegro coast is just as gorgeous as that of its better known neighbor, Croatia, and it is for good reason that its main tourist destinations are popular in summer.
The Bay of Kotor, resembling a fjord, is dotted with coastal churches and fortified towns such as Kotor and Herceg Novi. Durmitor National Park, home to bears and wolves, encompasses limestone peaks, glacial lakes and the 1,300m-deep Tara River Canyon. Budva is the country's most popular tourist destination and boast some great beaches as well as a lovely, walled town center.
