In the Middle Age, when Venetian sailors saw the dark pine forests of the Lovcen Mount, they called it "Monte Negro": the Black Mountain.

Montenegrins are Slavic people, who were ardent opponents of the Turkish conquest in Europe: they resisted till death or victory. In the fighting, an identity made of nationalism and orthodox faith has built around monasteries and strongholds that you can still visit today, strolling in the numerous mountains of the country.

You said mountains?... In Montenegro, 60% of the territory is situated over 1,000m altitude. And as the country is located on the shores of the Mediterranean sea, don't forget that Montenegro is one of the rare countries in the world where you can ski and swim in a single day!
