Since the Yugoslavian civil war, Montenegro has been rebuilding and upgrading its tourism industry to showcase its natural beauty and to become a top European holiday destination. The country of Montenegro is a Southeastern European country located in the Balkans with its west side bordering the Adriatic, where you'll also find a lot of beautiful Kvarner Villas and Dalmatian apartments. The country’s tourism industry suffered much from Yugoslavia’s senseless civil war in the 1990s, but has since been recovering. Many hotels have been renovated and in some cases reconstructed as well as its roads being upgraded. Once again, tourists from around the world have been re-discovering the beauty of the “Black Mountain”.
Central Montenegro, the country’s most populous region, is centered around the country’s capital city, Podgorica. This bustling city has many Central Montenegro apartments but if you prefer a holiday home or Central Montenegro holiday villa, the city and outlying area does well to accommodate all tastes and budgets.Boasting a population of around 150 000 people, Podgorica is the largest city in Montenegro. The city is situated in the Montenegrin lowlands nestled between Lake Skadar and the Dinaric Alps. This metropolis has many Central Montenegro apartments to cater to the growing tourism industry. Although the city is not ascetically as eye-catching as most popular European countries, its fusion of old and new, cafes, restaurants and nightlife are worth a visit.
You already know Podgorica? Than you have to discover new, exciting places and cities in this part of Europe:
On the border of Albania and Montenegro lies the largest lake in the Balkan Peninsula – Lake Skadar. Also know as Lake Scutari, the lake is named after the northern Albanian city of Shkodra. Being connected to the Adriatic by the 41-kilometer long Bojana River, the lake’s area varies between 530 and 370 square kilometers. Lake Skadar’s surface is 6 meters above sea level and two thirds of it is in Montenegro. Beška is one of the small islands on the lake, which features a former fortress, prison and two churches. Enjoy the lake from your Central Montenegro holiday villa or rent one of the many Central Montenegro apartments on or near the lake.
Another attraction worth visiting on your trip to Central Montenegro is the Millenium Bridge. This spectacular cable-stayed bridge extends across the Morača River. The Slovenian company Ponting, with the help of Mladen Ulićević, a professor of Civil Engineering in Podgorica, designed the bridge and another Slovenian company, Primorje, took care of its construction. After its opening on Montenegro’s National Day, the 140-meter long bridge’s status quickly rose to one of the city’s most important landmarks. Depending on your location, you may have views of the bridge from your Central Montenegro holiday villa.
