Often overlooked for other countries positioned along the Adriatic Sea, Montenegro is a hidden gem that’s now receiving the appreciation it truly deserves.

Destroyed during World War II, its capital Podgorica is where ancient meets modern, with the eye-catching Millennium Bridge serving as the connecting point across the city-splitting Moraca River. This city is part of the wider Podgorica Municipality, home to most of the nations’ population, and the stunning Lake Skadar.

Skadar, also known as Skadarsko Jezero, is the Balkans’ biggest lake and national park, where some of the world’s rarest plants and an astonishing array of wildlife can be found. The park hosts over 250 species of birds, 50 species of fish and three types of snake. However, it’s also teeming with history, as fortresses, monuments, fishing villages and island monasteries are scattered across the landscape. You can experience the best of Podgorica and Lake Skadar with the ‘Classic Montenegro and Serbia’ tour from PTG.
