Montenegro Geography

Montenegro consists predominantly of high, in many places impassable mountains, which culminate in the limestone massif Durmitor (2522 m). The mountains extend southwest to the southernmost part of the Dalmatian coast, where the colorful karst landscape reaches close to the coast between Budva and Petrovac.

A deep fjord stretches all the way to the old, fortified town of Kotor. Behind the coast lies the Zeta plain and further south Lake Shkodra. The sheltered Mediterranean coastal areas with subtropical vegetation are replaced by harsh inland mountain areas, where snow occurs during the summer. Only parts of the former extensive forests of beech, oak or ash remain. Farming, in many places grazing with especially sheep farming, remains an important occupation in Montenegro.
