Lord Byron once wrote: 'At the moment of the planet's creation, the most beautiful blending of land and sea occurred on the Montenegrin coast...
Although small in size, Montenegro is rich in natural beauty, historical monuments, and sunny weather almost all year round. It is a country full of contrasts. Within a distance of only 100 kilometers, there are three different natural environments: the coast, karst region, and high mountain region. Tourists have the opportunity to swim in the sea, raft on rivers, hike mountains, or ski in the mountains - all in one day.
Although classified as an Adriatic and Mediterranean country, Montenegro is also a mountainous country where areas above 1,000 meters above sea level make up as much as 60.5% of its territory. Its territory represents the wealth of relief of a place unrecorded in the world. The Montenegrin mountain range, which extends from Maglic, Volujak, and Bioč in the west to Prokletije in the east, intersected by magnificent canyons of Piva, Komarnica, Susica, Tara, and Moraca, adorned with over 35 picturesque lakes, represents one of the most attractive and ecologically preserved mountainous regions of the Balkans and Europe.
Three hundred kilometers of Adriatic coast is a jewel of Montenegro's natural beauty. The beaches are pebbly, sandy, or rocky, ranging from just a few meters, to hundreds of meters or kilometers. Some are isolated - far from populated areas or right in front, of the central city promenade or your hotel. Some, with restless waves, face the open sea, while others are sheltered in the calm waters of picturesque bays. Some are gentle and easily accessible, while others are wild, isolated, and inaccessible, usually only reachable by boat or small craft. Some are deserted, romantic, and lonely, while others are lively, crowded with a series of events and activities.
Recognizing the importance and magnitude of this wealth, the Montenegrin parliament declared Montenegro an ecological state in 1988. Thus, the state became a protector of untouched natural empire. At the UNCED conference (Brazil 1992), Montenegro was declared the first ecological state in the world. Protected natural and cultural resources cover 10% of the total territory. Five national parks, protected forest systems, authentic natural complexes, unpolluted water, clean air, over 50 protected plant and 320 animal species make an extraordinary basis for further tourism development. Close to a quarter of the total European flora can be found in this area. Montenegro is also a country of natural rarities, home to one of two virgin forests in Europe (Biogradska gora), the southernmost and most beautiful bay of glacial origin in the world (Boka Kotorska Bay), the deepest and longest river canyon in the world after the Colorado (the canyon of the Tara River), the largest and most characteristic lake in this part of Europe (Lake Skadar), and the purest river in Europe (the Tara River). The Durmitor National Park and the city of Kotor are on the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List.
