Montenegro is located in the central area of the Mediterranean, in the Adriatic Sea.
The two extreme points of this Country are 190 km far one from each other as the crow flies.
The capital of the Republic of Montenegro is Podgorica, with a population of 159.000 inhabitants.
On the 20th of September 1991, Montenegro was officially proclaimed the first ECOLOGICAL STATE in the world thanks to its intact nature: nowadays the Country is know as “the last European ecological oasis”.
Notwithstanding its small territory, Montenegro owns many natural pearls: Biogradska Gora, one of the two remaining virgin forests in Europe; Skadar Lake, the largest and deepest lake in the Balkans, rich in fishes and birds, with pelican nests; Durmitor Mountain, a “snow giant”, under the protection of UNESCO, 2.522 mt. high, where skiing is possible all over the year, and Lovcen, the mountain considered as the symbol of Montenegro Nation.
Moreover, the Country is also rich in many other natural and cultural places.
Zabljak and Kolasin are skiing villages equipped with modern tourist facilities, about 100 km far from the sea, where abundant snow can be found all over the year.
San Vasilije Ostrog Monastery is one of the biggest orthodox Sanctuary in the world, visited every year by more than thousands of pilgrims.
Montenegrin people have a special feeling for their old capital: Cetinje.
This town, located at the foot of Mount Lovcen, is the only place in the territory where the Liberty torch shone for many years.
