With over 300 bird species, including the Rock Partridge, Baillon’s Crake, Pygmy Cormorant, Little Bittern and Scoops Owl, that call Montenegro home, the observation of birds at Montenegro’s best nature spots is a true delight to behold.
The calm, serene waters along Montenegro's coasts are blessed with exceptional beauty, untouched nature and year-round balmy temperatures. The same can be said for its yoga retreats, with Boka Bay providing the ideal safe haven for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Yoga retreats have been popping up in and around the Luštica peninsula, with new offerings already transforming the region into a haven of peace and serenity. With Reiki, Pranayama and Shamanism providing an alternative to hiking, skiing and mountain biking, Montenegro is fast becoming an ideal destination for weekend retreats encapsulating all things wellness.
For those looking to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the smooth flowing postures, Ayurveda nutrition and sumptuous scenery at these tranquil retreats will help switch off and stimulate the mind, body and soul.
With more visitors flocking to Montenegro’s shores than ever, there has been a steady increase in demand for all things wellbeing. Senso Di Cattaro and Monte Bay Retreat are paving the way for health programmes and retreats, which is becoming more popular in Montenegro.
The Adriatic coast boasts panoramic views, must-visit beaches and vineyards, unforgettable food and, of course, wine. Stretching from Venice to Corfu, it’s always an experience that you never want to end. What better way to luxuriate on this coastline than to sail it?
The intense, blue sea, framed by breath-taking mountains is the perfect backdrop for all activities in Montenegro. Sailing is just one of many opportunities in Montenegro for visitors to explore villages soaked in culture and history to fit around your jam-packed schedule. Herceg Novi, Budva and Kotor are just a few locations favoured by locals and tourists alike.

Here’s a Q&A with the man behind showcasing the stunning images from the depths of Montenegro’s mountains
Over the past year, Ivan Marinović has been busy preparing for his debut into production with his inaugural film, The Black Pin . Sponsored by Luštica Bay, as part of our ongoing commitment to local talent, Living Montenegro readers may already be familiar with Ivan, as we previously featured a Q&A with him last year during pre-production.
On 15th September, Luštica Bay hosted a spectacular event to showcase Ivan’s splendid film, which was first screened at this year’s Sarajevo Film Festival. Set in the Luštica Peninsula, The Black Pin is a typical Balkan comedy – combined with wit and humour and gorgeous landscapes.

“Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik”.
George Bernard Shaw could not describe it any better. Founded in the 7th century, the mix of medieval, gothic, renaissance and Baroque architecture sets Dubrovnik apart from other, modern Baltic cities.
Surrounded by impressive historical walls and alluring crystal clear waters, this mystifying town is an ideal spot for a day trip, and offers endless opportunities to meander along Croatia’s beautiful Dalmatian coast. Despite its reputation as a party destination, Dubrovnik is full of natural and ancient charms. Walk through the town, and admire its archaic walls, marble floors and water fountains. It’s easy to see why this coastal town was one of the locations chosen to film parts of Game of Thrones. Venturing down the little alleyways alone will enchant you.
However, it is not just Game of Thrones enthusiasts, A-list Celebrities, or The Yacht Week partygoers that are enchanted by Dubrovnik’s alluring surroundings. For cultural enthusiasts, the Old Town is the epicentre for all things Dalmatian. For many, it is the most interesting and, dare we say it, attractive part of Dubrovnik. Let the maze-like romantic Stradun pavements, the smell of aromatic herbs, and the local chatter along the narrow streets take you on an unforgettable journey through the centuries.
