Due in large part to its stunning, yacht-friendly coastline, Montenegro is finally emerging from the shadow of Eastern Europe’s Communist chokehold and re-establishing itself as a destination for the international jet set. It’s no wonder developers flock here to build new luxury complexes that take advantage of the view from every house, apartment, and jetty. Montenegro Travel Guide is about where to stay, things to do in Montenegro, and where to buy if you want to make it a semi-permanent getaway.

There is currently a nasty spat between the owner and island residents over beach access, so when –or, as some belief, if — the resort reopens, expect the ill will to linger.
This city is characterized by harmony between traditional and modern architectural styles and the connection between the old and the new, which can be explored and experienced in many different ways. We recommend visiting Montenegro’s capital and its rich cultural heritage and the archaeological sites of Doclea and Medun and Stara Varos.
