US Bloomberg ranked Montenegro among the top 20 destinations that will be particularly popular this year.
The best way to plan a trip is to think about what you love to do and when you need a break—not which destination you have yet to check off some list. With these key points in mind, American Bloomberg tapped their network of in-the-know editors and global correspondents to deliver two dozen inspiring spots that will be particularly enticing this coming year.
Montenegro found itself ahead of Italy, Kyrgyzstan, Hungary, Bolivia, Mozambique, Jamaica and Cairo.
Bloomberg writes that the tiny Balkan country has slowly positioned itself as the new jewel of the Adriatic, with a mix of centuries-old villages, aristocratic mansions and numerous challenging locations beyond gravel beaches.
“Local adventure outfit Black Mountain is beginning conservation-centric journeys to see the brown bear, gray wolf, Eurasian lynx, and other threatened species in Durmitor and Biogradska Gora national parks,” Bloomberg states.
After the wild beauty, they recommend going to the “sunlit” shores of the sea.
“And don’t miss Portonovi, a billion-dollar, 60-acre yachting playground on Boka Bay. In June its marina will welcome Europe’s first One&Only resort and an Espace Chenot spa. Cruise right in, or fly Lufthansa to the port town of Tivat,” the author said.
Bloomberg also recommends when it is best to visit Montenegro and when not, with a handy overview of annual accommodation rates.
According to them, the weather in Montenegro is warm enough for bathing until October, when the prices are the most affordable.
“So does late spring, when nights can still be crisp,” recommends this eminent media.
