Stretching little more than 300 km (186 miles), Montenegro is around the size of Connecticut. 
But while it might be small, it still packs a mighty punch.



Montenegro boasts four World Heritage Sites, roughly one site per 3,363 km². Two of the best-known sites include the Bay of Kotor and Durmitor National Park.
In 2006, after decades of political turmoil, Montenegro declared independence from Serbia and became a sovereign state. The UN recognised it as its 192nd member on July 27 2006. Only Kosovo (2008) and South Sudan (2011) are newer countries. The first mention of Montenegro dates back to the Early Middle Ages. In the 9th century, the former Roman province of Dalmatia split into three principalities – Duklja, Travunia and Rascia. After centuries of
revolts and wars, the Ottomans gained control of large portions of the country between 1496 and 1878. 
The Republic of Venice controlled a few territories too. From 1918 until independence it was part of Yugoslavia. 


Cut into a cliff, this spectacular Montenegro monastery near Niksic has centuries of fascinating history. Large and painted white, Ostrog Monastery can be seen from kilometres away, contrasted against the greys and oranges of the natural rock. But, actually, this is all from a restoration that happened around 1925 after a major fire destroyed much of the monastery.
The two caves, which are the most important part of the site, did survive, though. Perhaps St Basil of Ostrog was protecting them.
Every year, tens of thousands of people make a pilgrimage to Ostrog Monastery in the hope that the relics of St Basil will be able to help them. Many of them go barefoot for the last three kilometres from the lower monastery, up the winding road to the upper monastery.


Podgorica is Montenegro’s capital city. The name Podgorica was first recorded in 1326, but before that it was known as Ribnica, a settlement that was part of the Nemanjic dynasty. After keeping the name Podgorica through several invasions, the city was christened Titograd in 1946 as part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Literally translated as Tito City, it was named after the SFRY’s leader, Josip Broz Tito (there were already a lot of Tito Streets and Tito Squares). Come the messy break-up of Yugoslavia, Titograd was renamed Podgorica in 1992
