This new, sixth edition of Bradt’s Montenegro is the most comprehensive guide available to one of Europe’s hidden corners and features many areas not covered by other guides. Thoroughly updated to incorporate all the most recent developments, from practical information on where to go, stay and eat to vivid descriptions, historical insights and in-depth background on both well-known and off-the-beaten track sights, it is an ideal companion for both independent and group travellers. Beach lovers, culture aficionados, hikers, adrenaline-seekers, birding and wildlife enthusiasts and foodies are all catered for, with details of everything from coastal retreats, the Buljarica wetlands and Ulcinj saltpans to Durmitor and Biogradska national parks, Prokletije Mountains and cultural big-hitters such as Cetinje and Kotor, as well as the many reminders of the country’s Ottoman and Venetian heritage.
With new flight routes opening up and the tourist board working hard to promote the country, Montenegro’s popularity is on the rise. The Via Dinarica and Balkan Peaks long-distance trails both pass through Montenegro and are drawing ever greater numbers, while adventure sports – climbing, skiing, mountain biking, sea kayaking, coasteering, and white-water rafting, to name a few – form an increasingly significant part of the country’s appeal. Montenegrin wine, too, is attracting a growing band of devotees.
With medieval gems and a stark rugged beauty, the country offers something for everyone and with Bradt’s Montenegro you are perfectly equipped for a successful trip.
