About this book

A hidden corner of eastern Europe, Montenegro lies across the Adriatic Sea from Italy, its stark mountains rising up from the coast. It offers superb, year-round, eco-adventure and sports facilities. Medieval architectural gems vie for attention with more recent Venetian fortresses and churches, reflecting the diversity of Montenegrin culture.

Along the eastern border lies Lake Skadar, a nature lover's dream with national park status. Updated throughout, this edition has all the practical information the independent traveller needs, including new hotels and restaurants on the coast and in the mountains. Outdoor and cultural enthusiasts will enthuse over the extended coverage on national parks, fishing opportunities and archaeological finds.
