Some places you visit once, then spend the rest of your life wondering how they escaped your radar for so long. A case in point example is Montenegro, which even today has a tendency to fall well outside mass-tourism maps. Which is, of course, all to its advantage—much of the appeal of Montenegro lies in its fantastically undiscovered charms.

Boasting more UNESCO-protected areas per square meter than almost anywhere else in the world, Montenegro really is like nowhere else on earth. If anything, the biggest issue you’ll face when visiting Montenegro is how to budget your time in the best way possible.

To give you some idea of the kind of unforgettable experiences you’re in for, here are just six of the many things that make Montenegro a genuine one-of-a-kind place:

1. It’s Fantastically Accessible

First up, Montenegro is quickly and conveniently connected with pretty much every major European city (Rome: 1 hour 20 minutes, Vienna: 1 hour 35 minutes, Istanbul: 1 hour 45 minutes, Zurich: 2 hours, Frankfurt: 2 hours 10 minutes, Paris: 2 hours 40 minutes, London: 2 hours 50 minutes, etc.) It’s also one of the best possible starting points for a trip around the Balkans and is served by dozens of super-cheap budget airlines.

2. Stunning Natural Diversity

From the towering mountains to breathtaking beaches, Montenegro is home to almost every type of landscape that exists on earth.

One of the only three rainforests that still exist in Europe is located in the Biogradska Gora National Park, and the Tara River Canyon at Durmitor National Park is the second longest in the world after the Grand Canyon.

If outdoor exploration and adventure are your thing, there really is nowhere else on earth like Montenegro.

3. Beaches of Pure Paradise

Beach life can be anything you want it to be in Montenegro. If looking to revel in the hedonistic lifestyle of a super-energetic and packed party resort, there’s no shortage of options available. By contrast, if you’d prefer to relax in the complete solitude of your own private cove, you won’t need to look far to find one. The beaches of Montenegro are some of the most beautiful in the world, and there are plenty of them to go around.

4. Boka Kotorska (Kotor Bay)

The single most beautiful bay in the world? It is quite possibly Boka Kotorska, or Kotor Bay. This mesmerising inlet is deserving of its title as the “jewel of the Montenegrin crown”. An absolutely unmissable sight on any trip to Montenegro, irrespective of how brief your visit may be.

5. Incredible Cuisine

The cuisine is one of the top reasons to visit Montenegro. It blends the cultures of Italy, Turkey, Hungary and Austria, and the result is a melting pot of gastronomic delights unlike anything else you’ve experienced.

There’s also huge diversity in local delicacies from one region to the next, though (of course) seafood is the order of the day across much of Montenegro.

6. Eclectic Nightlife

Budva is known locally as “Montenegrin Miami” for a good reason. Much of the place may seem somewhat unassuming during the day, but head out at night and you’ll find it hard to believe you’re in the same town. Suffice to say, this is not a place for shrinking violets to head, or anyone in search of a quiet and tranquil evening by the sea!
