Serbia and Montenegro share a long cultural, economic and political history. They declared independence from each other in June 2006, splitting into two separate republics. Serbia is land-locked, consisting largely of plains and low hills, whilst the extensive coastline and vast mountain ranges that make up Montenegro make it the perfect spot for a villa holiday.
With one of our gorgeous Explore Montenegro villas, you are perfectly placed to enjoy gems such as the Durmitor National Park, home to the famous Tara Canyon, and can easily set aside a day to travel across Montenegro into Serbia, where the world-famous Danube river passes through on its journey through ten countries.
There are direct coach and rail connections between Serbia and Montenegro, and although it is not necessary to fly between the two countries, there are frequent flights from the Montenegrin airports of Tivat and Podgorica to Belgrade in Serbia, ten times daily through the summer months.
Belgrade is one of Serbia’s most beloved cities, a vibrant and charming place in spite of being destroyed around forty times throughout a history spanning over seven thousand years. The city of Belgrade is seen by many to be the cultural and artistic hub of Serbia, home to the prestigious Serbian Academy of Arts and Sciences, as well as plenty of museums, theatres and sites of archeological importance.
Also nestled in the city centre is a café-lined boulevard which runs through the old town, bustling with life under the watchful eye of the Kalemegdan Citadel. A Celtic fortress, this cultural treasure one of the most beautiful natural outlooks in Serbia, and still proudly stands guard over the city today.
Serbia and Montenegro are bursting with forgotten beauty, waiting to be rediscovered. By staying in a stunning villa along the Montenegro coastline, you can enjoy the exciting landscape of Montenegro and still experience the rich cultural heritage that Serbia has to offer.
