”At the birth of our planet, the most beautiful encounter between the land and the sea must have happened at the coast of Montenegro. When the pearls of nature were sawn, handfuls of them were scattered on this soil”

But, more than anything…

Numerous epochs marked this region leaving their trails (neolith, metallic, pre-Illyric period, Ilyres, Celts, Hellenists, Romans, early Christian, Byzantine and Slavic). That is the reason why Montenegrins never considered themselves as small people living on large territory in European province, but as a part of the Balkans, Europe and world region. Due to their high moral principles: humanity, based on patriarchal codex – they are proud of their glorious tradition, courage and independence. Discover Montenegro to discover yourself!
