Normally we don’t like to take our cues from press releases, but the Visit-Montenegro.com Newsletter we just received has us excited for Europe’s newest country.
Independent now for under year, Montenegro boasts truly stunning coastline, beguiling mountain terrain, and the amazingly deep Kotor fjord (see above). It’s also—as of yet—very cheap.
Since independence, it’s become an obvious place to invest. There are plans to turn a former military shipbuilding yard in Tivat into a luxury marina, and the Aman Resorts group is leasing three resort properties—in Budva, Milocer, and Sveti Stefan.
On the budget-friendly side, we’ve been noticing package holidays to Montenegro originating in northern Europe. We’re just waiting for forward-thinking budget air carriers to start adding destinations like Podgorica and Tivat to their route maps.
