When we talk about the natural beauty in Montenegro, one definitely cannot find something as beautiful and captivating as the mountainous landscape of Durmitor National Park.

The entire time we were driving through this area, I was in complete awe. The fresh mountain air mixed with the natural beauty was truly stupendous. You must have never heard of this park before coming to Montenegro, and will only discover this after looking at a map and doing some research. However, it is swiftly going to become the highlight of your time in Montenegro. While most people who visit this wonderful country stick only to the coastline, getting up to the North and witnessing this stunning landscape for yourself is highly recommended.
Montenegro isn't exactly famous for its lively nightlife and is far from being a major 'party destination' in Europe. With that being said, you’ll be thoroughly impressed with the vibrant bar and music scene that can be found in Old Town, Budva. On Friday night, the streets are going to be packed with beautiful people, and you would be able to feel the positive energy all around you. Discover a solid mix of locals and tourists here, all dressed in their finest attire and looking for having a good time. After enjoying a few drinks at a couple different hotspots, head up to the mega-club 'Top Hill'. Though the venue is absolutely massive, it could easily fit thousands of people. There is decently affordable drinks, quality house music, and a friendly atmosphere. It'll be no surprise if you catch yourselves not leaving the club until 4:30 A.M.
If you're looking for one of the most scenic areas in Montenegro to spend a good day and just relax on the beach, there is no better option than the quaint coastal village of Sveti Stefan. There is not much to do here, but that's kind of the point. Discover a spot on the beach, buy yourself a cold beverage, and just relish your time here. This is also one of the best spots for sunset-watching while visiting Montenegro. The way the sun falls behind the mountains swiftly in the distance is captivating, and you'll definitely want your camera to seize the moment.
Situated in the north of Montenegro, close to the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina, the region of Piva is going to impress you with its splendid landscapes. The Piva river bisects through the limestone mountains, creating vast lakes and striking canyons. The water is just so clear that you can absolutely see through it even when you are standing more than 1000 meters above it. Follow up the road winding up north from Pluzine for about 15 kilometers and stop at pretty much every possible viewpoint. Other possible activities include camping or rafting down the river. This area is absolutely amazing since there is a surprise behind each and every turn. Every viewpoint is unique and the further north you go, the more sensational the views.
On the road that lead from the South of Montenegro towards Piva, just adjacent to one of the lakes, the town of Pluzine and its beautiful surroundings offer stunning views of the river. Do reach there before sunset, stay in one of the bungalows close to the lake, connect with the locals over some coffee and get up early for sunrise. This place, though completely off the beaten path, is just perfect for getting away from the daily life for a couple of days.
On your way to Albania, you’ll be driven around the wonderful Skadar Lake, which is the biggest lake of the Balkan peninsula right on the border between Montenegro and Albania. The highlight of this visit is definitely going to be the horseshoe bend. If you happen to be lucky enough, you'll get the views all to yourself! Wish to extend the fun? Then stay in one of the villages around the lake for a night or two.
The beautiful city of Kotor which sits next to the splendid blue bay of Kotor was rightly voted as one of Lonely Planets 'Best in Travel' winners for the year 2016. Inside the secured walls of the old city lies a maze of tiny lanes, quaint coffee houses, boutique shops, and restaurants tempting you in with both local as well as international flavors. A famous destination for cruise boats to dock, visiting early morning or later afternoon is highly recommended to try and avoid the crowds. Attempting to take the hike to the fortress in the mid-day heat for the spectacular views of the bay from below is pointless! Moreover, keep an eye out for all the stray cats that this city homes, as you won't be able to miss them.
The modern and lavish waters of Tivat are home to lavish yachts, high rise apartments and compact stretches of beach surrounded by restaurants needing a bit of dressing up for the evening. The azure of the water with the white boats bouncing up and down makes it the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the Kotor old town. Simply sip on a coffee and watch people before topping up your tan on the sand barely meters away.
On first glances, the city of Podgorica could be easily missed. Located in the flatter lands between the sun-kissed coast and the majestic mountains, this underestimated city doesn't attract the crowds that its beach rivals do. Enjoy a walk along the river and witness how the modern architecture of the malls and central bridge merge against the worn older houses and you get a feeling of old and new all at once. It is also the ideal place to stop and recharge your batteries before you continue further from coast to the mountains.
