Learn more about Montenegro
How much do you know about Montenegro? Well, probably less than you should. The tourism market hasn’t really tapped in to Montenegro’s phenomenal beauty and diversity. And there’s a reason why it’s referred to as the “Hidden Pearl of the Mediterranean.” Along the coast is the Adriatic…inland there are dense forests and jaw-dropping glacial lakes. Now is the time to explore all that Montenegro has to offer.

The idea of moving to Europe can conjure up images of running a business in pasta heaven Italy with its postcard-perfect hill towns…in France’s castle-dotted countryside…or perhaps in the bustling urban centers of Amsterdam, Berlin, or Barcelona.
If you agree $45,000 for a small apartment with sea views sounds reasonable, hurry across to Europe and the newly-independent country of Crna Gora.
Crna Gora? Unless you’re fluent in Serbo-Croat, it doesn’t trip lightly off the tongue. Thankfully the rest of the world uses its more melodious Italian name of Montenegro. Both mean “Black Mountain.”
The vegetation on Albania’s Ionian Riviera changes about four times from almost sub-tropical moonscape in the south through miles of ancient olive forest to cypress forest and miniature Grand Canyon landscapes. As you move north, the scrub terrain gives way to ancient pine forest. Villages are built on promontories perched high above the spectacular Ionian coastline; rugged mountains as their backdrop and turquoise bays their view. There are fewer islands here, but what Albania lacks in island life it more than makes up for in long sandy beaches and wild surroundings.
