Montenegro

Montenegro is a small country in the Balkans, on the Adriatic Sea. It borders Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina to the north, Serbia to the northeast, Kosovo to the east, and Albania to the south.

The population of Montenegro is slightly over 600,000. Its capital city since it separated from Serbia-Montenegro in 2006, is Podgorica. Cetinje is designated as the Prijestonica, or former Royal Capital City.

Geographically, Montenegro ranges from high peaks along its borders with Serbia, Kosovo and Albania, through a segment of the Karst of the western Balkan Peninsula, to a narrow coastal plain that stops abruptly in the north, where Mount Lovćen and Mount Orjen plunge into the inlet of the Bay of Kotor. The mountains of Montenegro include some of the most rugged terrain in Europe, averaging more than 6,000 ft (2,000 m) in elevation. The highest peak is Zla Kolata, Prokletije (8,314/ ft/ 2,534 m)

Montenegro is also home to Europe’s deepest canyon, the Tara River Canyon, which reaches 4,300 ft (1,300 m) in depth. It is also known for its beautiful lakes and extensive hiking opportunities in one of the wilder regions of Europe.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.

Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
