    Despite its small size Montenegro is a country with many interesting sights. If you come here, most sights are simply explorable.

    Location of Montenegro

    On a European scale Montenegro is a relatively rarely inhabited area in the Dinaric Alps. Steep hillsides divided by bays follow its shore along the Adriatic coast. The largest is the Bay of Kotor. The Montenegrin coast is located in the southeastern part of the Adriatic Sea, between Croatia and Albania. The coastline is 260.2 kilometres, the mainland is 249.1 kilometres and the islands’ coastline is 11.1 kilometres long. The seabed deepens rapidly. You can find the deepest point of the Adriatic Sea at near the Montenegrin coast (1280 metres).

    History of Montenegro

    The first artefacts are from the Paleolithic Era. Illyrian tribes lived here from 500 BCE to 200 BCE. After that the area was under Roman rule, several cities were founded in those times. Until the 6th century there was Byzantine rule then came the Slavs. Between the end of the 12th century and the 15th century most of the present territory of Montenegro was part of Serbia (Rakša). Montenegro has recognized as an independent state in 1878 at the Berlin Congress and with the support of major powers it had the chance to expand its territory. In 1916 the king lost his power when the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy occupied the country.

    In 1929 the Serb-Croat-Slovene Kingdom reorganized as Yugoslavia. After the collapse of Yugoslavia in 1992 the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was founded, Montenegro and Serbia were parts of it. In 2003 the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro was born based on the alliance of the two states. The city is an important commercial hub. The port can be divided into several parts: a port for scheduled vessels, private vessels, commercial vessels and naval port. The port is a country border and a customs border as well.
