With its name literally meaning Black Mountain, Montenegro is by definition a dramatic mountainous area bordering the Adriatic sea. Here’s our guide to the 10 most beautiful towns in Montenegro.

Perast, Montenegro I


The southernmost town in Montenegro, Ulcinj is a dynamic coastal town with a diverse heritage and warm atmosphere which will delight all culture seekers. Due to its proximity to Albania, the town is home to a large Muslim population. Thus, it enjoys a culture oozing with Middle Eastern influence, from its authentic Arabic restaurants to its numerous beautiful mosques. For those wishing to explore this ancient seaport and not simply snooze the day away on its glorious sandy beaches, Ulcinj is a hub for historic architecture. Having existed under Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman rules, the town is a melting pot for building styles and ancient ruins. The Museum of Local History is a sensible place to start in order to begin tracing the town’s colorful history. The town has many fascinating cultural dimensions and the area is one of the most aesthetically pleasing in Montenegro.
