The Mratinje Dam is a concrete arch dam in the canyon of the Piva River in Montenegro.
The dam was completed in 1975/ Its construction resulted in the flooding of the Piva canyon and the creation of Lake Piva, which, with its 12.5 km², is the second largest lake in Montenegro.
The dam is 220 metres (720 ft) high, one of the highest in Europe.
It is 82 kilometers (51 miles) long and the last 36 kilometers are the border between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro. The canyon is around 1,300 meters (4,300 feet) at its deepest part. These parameters make the Tara River Canyon one of the grandest river canyons in Europe and even in the whole world.
Enjoy this short autumn walk through the one of the last virgin Beech forests in Europe: Biogradska gora is the most cosy National Park in Montenegro.
John Broadley told Lonely Planet his experience in Montenegro was similarly inspiring. “Montenegro is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited in the world. The sheer faces of the mountains collide with the sea so abruptly and dramatically, it’s hard not to be in awe of the place!“ John visited the country with Untravelled Paths for a total of six days. He got to visit “two very different sides of the country”, he said, “from the busy streets of Kotor town to the sparse, rural national parks and mountain tops in Plav. They both offered equally beautiful scenery but were vastly different.”
The Montenegro drone video captures the dramatic landscapes, but also the bustling coastal towns that are becoming increasingly popular with tourists and cruise ships. “One minute you’re in the heart of one of the richest harbours in the world, and a ten minute drive away, you’re in the middle of rural Montenegro where all you can see is mountains and cows and the odd person here or there.” John said he can’t wait to go back to the country and had particular praise for the people he met there. “No matter where you went, everyone was very kind, helpful and welcoming.” The city of Kotor was chosen by Lonely Planet as their top city to visit in 2016 for Best in Travel.

Look how, recorded from the air, some regions of Montenegro seem magical this autumn!
Montenegro – everything your heart desires!
The direct flights between Montenegro and Dubai will start in the first half of the next year – this decision was approved on the meeting of the Montenegrin Minister of Tourism Mr. Gvozenović and the Executive Director of the low-cost airline company FlyDubai Mr. Gait Al Gaita.
FlyDubai currently performed more than 1 400 flights per week, with over 500 pilots and thousands of crew members, carrying thousands of passengers to 99 destinations. The company was founded in March 2008 by the government of Dubai. Fly Dubai is named the best low-cost airline in the Middle East in 2015.
Having the altitude of around 900 m above the sea, Njegusi is the true air spa where the two climates intersect. It is almost untouched virgin area without any industry.
A special attraction is the old road from Kotor to village Njegusi, famous Lovćens serpentines, which consists of 25 turns and 25 km of the road.
Njegusi are particularly attractive in summer when the temperatures are much lower than on the coast. This is one of the most beautiful vantage points from which one can have a view of the Montenegrin coast and – if the weather permits – even the coast of Italy.
In Njegusi you can try the famous Njegus smoked ham – pršut, the cheese (which entered the German anthology of the world cheese in XVII century) and the honey. You could also visit the birthplace of Petar II Petrović Njegoš, where the recollections about this remarkable man, who was enlisted in the very top of world literature because of his poem “Mountain wreath”, are being kept.

Our Lady of the Rocks (Croatian: Gospa od Škrpjela pronounced [ɡɔ̌ːspa ɔd ʃkř̩pjɛla]) is one of the two islets off the coast of Perast in Bay of Kotor, Montenegro (the other one is Sveti Đorđe Island). It is an artificial island created by bulwark of rocks and by sinking old and seized ships loaded with rocks. The Roman Catholic Church of Our Lady of the Rocks (Italian: Chiesa della Madonna dello Scarpello) is the largest building on the islet; it has a museum attached. There is also a small gift shop close to the church and a navigation light at the western end of the islet.
According to legend, the islet was made over the centuries by local seamen who kept an ancient oath after finding the icon of Madonna and Child on the rock in the sea on July 22, 1452. Upon returning from each successful voyage, they laid a rock in the Bay. Over time, the islet gradually emerged from the sea. The custom of throwing rocks into the sea is alive even nowadays. Every year on the sunset of July 22, an event called Fašinada in the local dialect, when local residents take their boats and throw rocks into the sea, widening the surface of the island, takes place.
