Pleasant discovery tours through Montenegro

Best of Orient and Occurrent

(djd). Threatsome mountains, deep gorges and a Mediterranean coastline: High-contrast landscapes and diverse cuisine characterise Montenegro. Thanks to its comparatively small surface area, natural friends and connoisseurs can travel on a day trip from sea level to summit regions. They can also try specialities such as oysters from the bay of Kotor, which belongs to the Unesco World Heritage Site, or the legendary ham from the Njeguši mountain village. Four signposted panoramic roads, including the "Round about Korita", the "Durmitor Ring", the "Mountains and the Sea" and the "Crown Montenegros", are suitable as signposts through the landscape and tastes of the Balkan State.

Appetite for discovery

An active-culinary journey through the "Land of Black Mountains" is best started in Podgorica. Because there is everything that grows between Almen and Adria on the markets of the Montenegrin capital. The stalls house figs and cork cherries, but also delicious kale and native olives, which are used to make high-quality oil. There are goatmeat, lamb and veal from family farms and the small carp fish Ukelei from Lake Skadarsee. The website makes an appetite for a voyage of discovery , where interested parties can download information brochures on activities and cuisine, as well as map material on the panoramic roads.

Almond varieties with Italian roots

Orient and occident have also left their mark in the country from a culinary point of view. Sweets such as Turkish Baklava or almond varieties from Italy are testament to this. The latter is always named after the place in Montenegro, such as cakes made from Perast or cake made from Dobrota.

For active enjoyers

Montenegro's nature, for example, offers over 50 thousands and 40 lakes as well as a coastline about 293 kilometres long on the Adriatic - and thus an exciting field of activity for nature lovers. However, a kitchen characterised by different climatic and cultural influences has also developed between rough mountain air and a mild Mediterranean climate.
