Montenegro

Montenegro is located at the Adriatic coast, with Alnsnis to the southeast and Croation and Bosnia and Herzegovina to the northwest. Montenegro occupies the size of 13.938 square kilometers of very diverse geography, aa narrow coastal plain, a lofty Dinaric hinterland and an interior karst plain mottled with stubbly hills. Karst is the limestone constituent present in the Alps themselves, which are in turn part of the range which extends parallel with the Adriatic coast forming a spondylitic backbone to the Balkan peninsula. As a result of the ground's characteristic porosity, rain water rapidly disappears leaving a landform story and barren. Some lakes dry up completely in summer and underground is a honeycomb of channesl and caves.

The Montenegro's coastal plain (277km) is defined by beaches and inlets and a spectacular fjord Boka Kotorska (Bay of Kotor), which is characterised by high mountains, rising almost perpendicularly from the gulf and, on its seaward, westerly coast, the untamed Lustica Peninsula with its seccluded coves and iridescent blue grotto. The seashores, most of which privide excelent facilities for bathing, diving, sailing and almost all watersports, are a mix of white pebble and, in the far south beyond the pirate's domain of Ulcinj, over 13km of broad, unbroken, sandy beach. The mild Mediterranean climate the entire coast enjoys makes for long hot summers and the promise of a five-six month swimming season.

Skadar Lake, only 40km from the sea, is the larges lake in the Balkans and rich in flora and fauna. It's both a fisherman's and an ornithologist's paradise, its adjacent marshland being one of the most extensive in the Mediterranean.

The northern region is theatrically mountanious and alpine, intersected by deep and narrow fast-flowing river valleys, ravines and narrow plateaux, glacial lakes and virgin forests. With a canyon grand enough to be compared to Colorado, and an assembly of peaks over 2.000m, it is no suprise that historically it has proved ideal guerrilla country, as centuries of invaders, most recently the Nazis, have found out to their cost. While the north is economically the least developed area of Montenegro, it holds, in the Durmitor National Park alone, 200km of marked hiking trails, challenging mountain climbing and some skiing.

The narrow coastal belt enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with long dry summers and short mild winters. Average July maximum temperatures are around 28c with a high approaching 30c, average annual sunshine is over 2.500 hours with a summer average of 300 plus hours per month.

 

Sveti Stefan is immensely attractive island, a famous town hotel which completely preserved its original look despite the fact it has been turned into luxury resort. Sveti Stefan is located only minutes from Budva, a well known touristic centre of Montenegro.
