Location And Climate

Montenegro is situated at the central Mediterranean area in the South East Europe bordering with Italia (across the Adriatic Sea), Albania, Serbia, Bosnia-Hercegovina and Croatia. It enjoys access to the Mediterranean Sea and has good road and rail connections with the rest of Europe.

Montenegro has a very good location. Distances between Podgorica and some big cities are:

  • Rome - 650 km
  • Paris - 1,760 km
  • Budapest – 640 km
  • Vienna – 1,790 km
  • Zurich – 1,220 km
  • Frankfurt – 1,450 km
  • Moscow – around 2,000 km
  • New York - around 2,500km

The contrasts in the land (topography) are related to climate. While the Mediterranean climate prevails at the seaside, in the closest hinterland, only few air-distance kilometers away, the dominant climate is continental. Average temperature of the air is 27.4oC, summer and 13.4oC, winter.

Montenegro has in average 180 sunny days.

While a picture tells a thousand words, Lord Byron’s words, in the early 19th century, paint a masterpiece picture:

At the birth of our planet, the most beautiful encounter between land and sea must have happened at the coast of Montenegro. When the pearls of nature were sown, handfuls of them were cast on this soil.
Lord Byron
