Sam's Exotic Travels to Montenegro - The Tiny Balkan Jewel of a Country

Montenegro, which means "Black Mountain", borders Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Serbia's breakaway province of Kosovo and Albania. About half of it is covered in thick forest. The tiny republic encompasses an Adriatic coastline, lowlands and high mountain ranges. The Tara River canyon is the deepest and longest in Europe.

Historic walled towns like Stari Bar, Budva, Kotor and Herceg Novi are medieval towns rich in history.  The interior is a setting of dramatic mountains tufted with pine forests, dotted with lakes and scored by giddy-deep canyons. The highest region, the Durmitor National Park, is a favorite for winter skiing and summer hiking in a pristine mountain-scapes while below in Tara's deep canyon, intrepid rafters challenge its tumbling rapids.
