Its name means Black Mountain because of the stunning mountain ranges that dot its terrain & are amongst the wildest and most rugged in the whole of Europe. Dramatic scenery is a major draw to this small country. Coupled with the mountains is a glorious sandy coast, and there are also areas of limestone karst formations.
A popular attraction is the Gulf of Kotor, where a well-preserved beautiful medieval city sits at the water's edge, with a breath-taking mountain backdrop. Budva is another beautiful town on the water and the old town of Ulcinj is perched high on top of the mountain, looking out over the shores. Skadar Lake is the country's biggest lake and picnics are popular around the edges.
