Montenegro Flights GuideMontenegro, an Eastern European and Balkan nation with a small Adriatic Sea coastline is known for its natural landscape, including canyons, glacial lakes and even Durmitor National Park, home to some of the most impressive vistas (and extreme wildlife) in the Balkan states. Montenegro itself means "Black Mountain" and was once part of Yugoslavia, though is modernly a middle-income and growing country.
Touristic travel tends to center around Kotor and Herceg Novi, which are both coastal towns once holding famous fortresses, the remains of which can be seen today. The capital city, Podgorica, is less a touristic destination in its own right than a trading port, as well as in relative proximity to many popular ski resorts and well as coastal resort towns.
Montenegro boasts two international airports: Podgorica and Tivat, located in their respective cities. Podgorica seems to be more popular amongst those headed to the capital or the southern region, and Tivat is more popular amongst those going to the coast. Dubrovnik Airport in nearby Croatia is also a popular way of traveling into the country. Montenegro contains some of the most mountainous and rugged terrain in Europe, if not in the entire world. Though it has a short coastline featuring slightly more moderated temperatures, the vast majority of the country is considered hyper-humid, meaning that rain and even snowfall happen throughout large portions of the year.
