A Balkan country located near the Adriatic Sea, Montenegro may not be the most popular travel destination, but it has the potential to become one. Between its stunning landscape, its fortified towns, and its incredible wildlife, Montenegro has so much to offer visitors. So if you’re planning to give it a shot, here are some things to do while you’re there.

Visit Kotor

Located on the Bay of Kotor, Kotor’s old town is one of the best-preserved fortified medieval towns on the Adriatic coast. It has a distinct Venetian style, with winding alleys, old barracks, museums, churches, and delicious foods offered by both sidewalk cafes and traditional restaurants alike. The bay itself offers treks and stunning views to those willing to climb.

See Tara Canyon

The second deepest canyon in the world (after the Grand Canyon), Tara Canyon is a must to explore whether it’s by whitewater raft, zip line, or bridge crossing. All of these will take your breath away, and some might even raise your heart rate, which is great for adventure seekers.

Check Out Cetinje

A previous capital of Montenegro, Cetinje is a 15th-century town whose prior embassies have been turned into academies and museums. It’s a great place to get lost for an afternoon, offering a fascinating glimpse into Montenegro’s past.
