Luxury Tours To Montenegro – Montenegro may have remained unknown to the West for centuries, but it was certainly well known to Adriatic pirates, Venetian plunderers, Ottoman pashas and Yugoslav technocrats. The unforgiving landscape and dogged people resisted all and maintained their own course, emerging as an independent nation in 2006. It is a country that prides itself on ‘humanity and bravery’ – to which we might add hospitality – and that comfortably accommodates Orthodox monasteries, Albanian mosques and communal promenading every evening. While the Montenegrins have their no-nonsense charm, it is the land itself that is the star. Lavender-tinged scree-covered mountains plummet to an emerald shore bustling with pomegranate trees along the Adriatic, and the northern mountains are so ruggedly untamed they are surely the refuge of mythical beasts.
