General information about Montenegro

Montenegro is a small south European and a Mediterranean country in the south-west Balkans. Montenegro borders Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Albania and the Adriatic Sea. The coastal plain disappears completely in the north, where Mount Lovćen and other mountain ranges plunge abruptly into the inlet of the Gulf of Kotor. The distance between the two extreme north and southern points of the country is only 190 km, yet between the Mediterranean climate of the south and the cruel mountain peaks of the north, it is as if there is an entire world. Because of this geographic and climate diversity Montenegro is called a land of 6 continents, and will offer you a morning bath in the waters of the Mediterranean and afternoon of skiing.

Montenegro Climate

Montenegro's lower areas have a warm Mediterranean climate that verges on being classified as humid subtropical, having hot though short, dry summers and cool, rainy winters. Temperature varies greatly with elevation. Montenegro's mountainous regions receive the highest amounts of rainfall in Europe.

Population of Montenegro

The population of Montenegro amounts only to about 700 000 and it comprises Montenegrins in majority and Serb, Bosnian and Albanian minorities. Differences between Montenegrins and Serbs however, are a matter of continuing controversy and luctuations between a Serb and a Montenegrin identity have been reflected in census figures. The CIA World Factbook describes the ethnic composition of present day Montenegro as follows:  Montenegrin 43%, Serbian 32%, Bosniak 8%, Albanian 5%, other (Muslims, Croats, Roma (Gypsy)) 12%.  

Language of Montenegro

Serbo-Croatian was the language of Montenegro, Serbia, Bosnia- Herzegovina and Croatia but Montenegro is (so far) the only former Yugoslav Republic that has not called its language after the name of the state (eg; Serbian, Croat, Bosnian etc). Nevertheless, Montenegrins PEN ( The international Association of Poets, Playwrights, Editors, Essayists and Novelists) has already declared there is no scientific or political reason for the Montenegrin language not to be named, scientifically and constitutionally, by its name. Most writing is in the Latin alphabet but Cyrillic is quite widely used, especially away from the coast, and, unlike in Serbia, both alphabets have equal status under the constitution.

Montenegro Economy

Montenegro's economy has continued to transform into a more service-based one, with the proclaimed goal of becoming the elite tourist destination, and joining the European Union. Efforts have been made to attract the foreign investors into tourism greenfield investments, as well as in large infrastructure projects, both needed to facilitate the tourism development. Montenegro has experienced a real estate boom in 2006 and 2007, with wealthy Russians, Britons and others buying property on its coast. Montenegro received, as of 2008, more foreign investment per capita than any other nation in Europe. Due to foreign direct investment, the Montenegrin economy has been growing at a very fast pace in recent years.
