Boasting a stunning stretch of Mediterranean coastline, gorgeous tucked-away mountain hamlets and charming small-town affability

It probably comes as no surprise that Montenegro is rapidly emerging as one of the world’s fastest-growing tourist destinations. Hit buzzing Budva during the two-month summer season and you’ll likely be beggared by the antics of Eastern Europe’s well-heeled pleasure seekers, yet venture beyond the glitz and be rightly rewarded with pristine natural landscapes and rustic towns oozing old-Europe charm. Subtle but seductive, stylish and schmick, this new kid on the Balkans block is fast moving to the top of its class.
