Tourism is not too old in Montenegro! In fact it’s just a few years back that it became an independent nation and gradually started focusing on tourism. But, in this small span of time, Montenegro has lured tourists from across the globe. It was the absolutely amazing historical towns, the impeccably peaceful beaches, and the super-clean waters of the Adriatics that helped the country through this journey. With such astoundingly enormous beauty & amazingly inspiring story, Montenegro has slowly making its name as one of the most loved tourist attractions among the real travelers. Another fascinating aspect that adds to the craze of Montenegro vacation packages among globetrotters is the cost-effectiveness. Traveling through the beaches of Montenegro is way cheaper than that of its neighboring countries including France, Italy, and Croatia.

It was a cave from which the entire monastery was carved! It was founded by Sveti Vasilije and still there are evidence near the monastery that testify to that fact.

What is the Best Time to Plan Montenegro Vacations?

If you have been planning to look for the best Montenegro vacation packages, you should take a pause and get knowledge on the best time to visit Montenegro. While in general, the time to visit Montenegro is between April to September, however, you have to study your requirements and decide when you should visit Montenegro. 

In fact, Montenegro climate is all about two different patterns ~ the Mediterranean climate near the coast, when summers are warm ( temperature between mid- the to upper thirties) and the winters being mild ~ and the other pattern followed in the interiors which shows up with a sub-alpine climate with warm summers & chilly winters (when temperature lowers down to minus fifteen to twenty degrees).

However, the coastal area can be traveled at any time of the year (it is pleasant throughout). The place is overcrowded between July to August and it can become really uncomfortable traveling during this part of the year. The rates almost double and the accommodations are unimaginably costly. But, June to September is the best time to travel to this part of the country!
