The Giants of Montenegro

By Linda Tancs

Bordered by Serbia, Croatia, Albania, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro may be earning stripes for its sparkling yacht-infused harbor, but its inland majesty is equally compelling.  Just a few hours’ drive inland from the pomp of Porto Montenegro is Durmitor National Park, a UNESCO nature reserve in Žabljak featuring the massif Mount Durmitor.  A year-round attraction, the massif of 50 peaks and 18 glacial lakes is a mecca for mountain tourism, sporting a canyon second only to Arizona’s famed Grand Canyon.  You can get there via two international airports, Podgorica or Tivat–or by bus from Podgorica to Žabljak for less than 10 euros.  The clime (or climb, as the case may be) is typically alpine, so dress accordingly.
