The Coast of Montenegro PDF Print E-mail

Montenegro's coast is one of the world's regions of greatest natural beauty and most attractive to visitors. It is like an enchanting picture book of creative mastery of nature and man and an inexhaustible treasure of culture and history.



This coast stretches from the entrance to the Bay of Kotor ,,Boka Kotorska" to the mouth of the Bojana River, at the border of Montenegro and Albania. Although relatively short and narrow, because of the steep, high mountains in the immediate hinterlands, the Montenegrin coastal region is unique in many respects. First and foremost, there is the magnificent fjord relief of the Boka Kotorska Bay's natural rampart, cutting deeply into the land between the peaks of Mounts Orjen and Lovcen. To the south of the Boka Kotorska there are only two other pronounced bays; Budva Bay under the slopes of Mt. Lovcen, and the Bay of Bar which, together with Spic Cove at the foot of Sutorman Hill makes a wider bay that is well protected from the southeast winds. The scarcity of Archipelagos along the Montenegrin coast is abundantly compensated by numerous elongated and wide fine-sandy beaches, thought to be some of the most beautiful in all the Mediterranean.montenegro_coast_01

The most renowned hotels of Herceg Novi, Budva , Milocer and Ulcinj can satisfy the sophisticated demands of European guests, and the isle-hotel of Sveti Stefan is not only an amazing natural Mediterranean-Adriatic phenomenon and unique sight, but it is also worthy of its world-class reputation.
Towering over all this beautiful charm and precious natural and cultural heritage is Mount Lovcen. Resting atop its peak is the Mausoleum of Bishop-Prince Petar Petrovic Njegos II, the great philosopher and author of ,,TheMountain Wreath". This summit is not only a commanding sentry of the South Adriatic, but undoubtedly one of the most beautifully unique panoramas in the whole world. There, on the slopes of Mt. Lovcen, after having climbed from Kotor, and being asked what he thought and might say about the fascinating beauty and miraculous nature of the Boka Kotorska and the whole Montenegrin Coast, the great playwright and wit George Bernard Shaw quipped; ,,Here we are in lack of words, even I have to remain silent and - enjoy!"


 This Mediterranean land and its properties is a most marvellous example of the union of diversity and opposites. It is an area which, throughout the history of humankind, connected and separated, but most often irresistibly attracted a wide variety of peoples, cultures, civilisations, religions, nations and states. Tolerance, mutual respect and friendship among its population, regardless of ethnicity or religious background, has always been one of the most prominent features of those who live on the Montenegrin coast. It was a stage on which great players in history often swapped roles or reigns; Cretans, Phoenicians, Egyptians, Jews, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Turks, Venetians, Italians, Spanish, French, Austrians, and Russians.
Furthermore, the country bears a name that even sounds secretive, inspires curiosity, but reveals what it promises. Here one will encounter the mysterious and the uncommon, where there are still open questions inspiring interest. That can be seen at every step along the coast. Montenegro may be small, but it holds infinite diversity. It offers the summer climate of Spain's Majorca, the lakes of upper Italy, the mountains of Switzerland, little coves for swimming like those of the Turkish Aegean Sea, and the sandy beaches of Tunisia. With its wealth of attractive and well-preserved sights, shapes and phenomena, as well as its rare blend of cultural and recreational offerings that are unique to both Europe and the rest of the world, all 326 kilometers of this Montenegrin Coastline is particularly characterised by 73 kms of both colourful sandy and pebble beaches, and special conveniences that can accommodate all the requirements of modern tourism.

Montenegro's coastal climate is particularly agreeable. For the sake of comparison, January's mean air temperatures at various parts of the Mediterranean are: Herceg Novi 8.9°C; the renowned French Riviera at Nice, 6.9°C; southern Italy's leading tourism resort of Naples, 8.7°C. The average summer temperature at Herceg Novi is 23.3°C, Nice is 20.9°C, and Naples is 23.TC. The annual sunshine average is 2,567 hours in Ulcinj, whereas it's 2,530 in Venice, Italy.

 It is not wander why more and more people falling in love with this beautiful part of adriatic and decides to buy property here.
