31 August - 1 September – Montenegro

Being one of the world’s youngest countries, Montenegro is still trying to find its national identity. The official language is Serbian, but the people demanded independence from Serbia. The currency is Euro, but the country is not in the Euro zone. The Montenegrins themselves are in minority in this country of many disparate ethnic groups.
Montenegro means ‘black mountain’, and there are for sure a lot of dark mountains looming everywhere. Also, there are beautiful old walled towns along the coast which are a delight for future tourists. We enjoyed the town Kotor very much. It will become a mega-attraction for tourists in the coming years.
