Montenegro

In the Mediterranean, there is simply no mountain landscape comparable to Montenegro. Now it is more and more accessible to cyclists too, with some 3,000 km of on- and off- road biking trails mapped out for you to discover. EuroVelo 8 will pass by the Bay of Kotor, a UNESCO world heritage site, on the way around the Adriatic coast to Podgorica, the capital. The route is currently not realised.

There are many things to see when cycling along the Montenegrin coast. The beauty of the hilly landscape is second to none. The bay of Kotor is a treasure cave and is certainly one of the highlights of the whole route. The tiny round island of Mamula, which guards the entrance to the bay was fortified by the Austrian general Lazar Mamula in the 19th century. Once you pass the town of Herceg Novi with its very Mediterranean amphitheatre and small parasol-lined beaches you enter the first of two sections of the Kotor Bay. In the deepest depths of the bay you will find the town of Kotor. It is complete with some of the best kept medieval settlements in this part of the Mediterranean.
