Montenegro , which means “Black Mountain”, is a country of South and Southeast Europe on the coast of the Balkans. It borders Bosnia-Herzegovina to the northwest, Serbia to the northeast, Kosovo to the east, Albania to the southeast, the Adriatic Sea to the southwest, and Croatia to the west. Its capital, Podgorica, is one of the twenty-three municipalities in the country. Cetinje is designated as the Old Royal Capital.
Montenegro is a country that is humble in size yet grand when it comes to the variety of natural wonders that occupy its space. Within its borders, one can savour the panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea, countless lakes, untamed rivers, dense forests and sheer mountains.
The Mountains of Montenegro lie in a series of epic landscapes so diverse; it doesn’t seem possible that they are all part of the same country. Snow-capped, jagged peaks morph into gentle, rolling alpine pastures and then plunge earthwards from glacial lakes into twisting, narrow gorges, hiding remote villages in summer and, in winter, some of the best-value skiing and snowboarding opportunities in the whole of Europe!

Kolašin is a town located in the north of the country and recognized as the center of Montenegrin winter tourism. The abundance of ski centers, lavishing slopes of Bjelasica mountain, the highly-treasured national park Biogradska gora, along with river Tara (dubbed ‘’Tear of Europe’’) all paint an illustrious picture of this area.
Centrally positioned, this rough and unpolished mountainous jewel connects South with North via main roads and railways that pass through various picturesque places. Additionally, this city will be linked with highway, which is expected to be completed middle of 2020, thus enabling people to reach Kolasin from the capital’s airport within 30 minutes.
