Gallery: Beautiful Montenegro

Montenegro Adriatic sea PhotosLocated on the Eastern Coast of the Adriatic Sea is the country that is often called the Jewel of Eastern Europe, and Crna Gora or Black Mountain. Like so many other principalities in Eastern Europe, the region that now makes up modern Montenegro lies in a hotly contested area that has been the battlefield for many revolutions and wars over the years. Throughout all of the fighting, Montenegro struggled to maintain itselt as a free and independent state. It wasn’t until 1878 that Montenegro was officially recognized, and became independent; however the region around Montenegro began changing rapidly in this area of the world at the turn of the century, and became a Kingdom in 1910.

While borders of Croatia, Albania, and other pre-WWI and WWII States waxed and waned leading up to the great wars, WWII decidedly shook up the region, and Montenegro spent the next thirty years shifting its borders, policies, governments, and even the peoples living in the region.

Montenegro Travel Destination

Today, Montenegro still holds centuries of these changing times in the culture, cuisine, and architecture of Montenegro. Many call Montenegro the Croatian Riviera, as its coastal views and villages are reminiscent of the French Riviera.

We could tout the endless beauty of Montenegro for days, but the true beauty of Montenegro has to be viewed to be understood…

  1. Thank you so much for this beautiful photos! As a child I used to visit my grandfather in Risan, in Boka Kotorska bay. Looking at this pictures brought tears to my eyes. I want to visit Montenegro again, after many years, to enjoy in its beauty and to revive past, if only for a moment in my mind.

  2. Reblogged this on Amanda's Shabby Chic and commented:
    This is one of my favourite places in the world and one place I have wanted to visit and was so close to it one year but my visa did not come through in time. I was spending two weeks in Croatia and wanted to pop across the Montenegro and spend a week with another friend who was there for a few weeks. Unfortunately I only found out later that I could have gone to the border and bought a visa right there. I had already changed my flights in Johannesburg so it was all a bit of a mess. I will definitely make my best efforts to get back there one day.
