Geography

Montenegro is located in southeastern Europe on the Balkan Peninsula. It borders with Croatia to the west, Bosnia and Herzegovina to the north, Serbia to the east and Albania to the south. The Adriatic Sea separates it from Italy. The land border stretches for 614 km, and the sea border for 293.5 km.


The climate in Montenegro is complex, conditioned by latitude, proximity to the sea, relief, and the position of the mountain massif directly by the shore.
There are several climatic zones: the Adriatic – Mediterranean in the south, the variable Mediterranean in the lowlands of the country (the Skadar basin and the plains), moderate – continental in the basins and valleys, and harsh mountain climate in the mountainous part of the country.
