Montenegro. Fast Facts and Tourist Guide

Montenegro – basic data:
In the first post about Montenegro I have already mentioned some facts about this country, namely about its area and population, number of beaches, now I just want to specify some facts, for example, as to the highest mountain, that is 2.522 m (Durmitor, Bobotov kuk), seacoast length – 294 km, political system – republic (Independent state since May 2005). The biggest ports are Budva, Bar and Kotor, main airports : Podgorica and Tivat.

Citizens from many countries are welcomed in Montenegro even without visas and they can enjoy their stay there for 90 days. Car insurance: no problems, indeed. There is a green card available for many countries, but, of course, you have to specify their list before deciding to rent a car. Euro is the official currency in Montenegro.

As to the national parks, some of them are worth your attention, namely: Durmitor, Biogradska gora, the lake of Scadar, Lovcen. Montenegro is divided into 22 municipalities. There is a Mediterranean type of climate there. Apart from hotels’ restaurants there a plenty of cafes, offering traditional Montenegrin cuisine. It is very important to try their wine, this wine is famous all over the world. For example, such grape brandy “Montenegrin loza” or “Prvijenac”, are a must-try.

And, please, remember, short pants, dresses and skirts are not required, especially in such public institutions as hospitals, banks, etc. Don’t take off the bottom part at beaches, you will make a revolution and surprise most people. And don’t drink too much, it is a bad taste in Montenegro.
