Montenegro could well be called the hidden gem of the Mediterranean. It has endured a tempestuous past, but today enjoys peace and burgeoning prosperity. Montenegro lies on the coast of the Adriatic Sea in Southeastern Europe between Croatia to the west and Albania to the southeast. It is a land of rugged snow-capped mountains, ancient forests and pristine beaches lapped by emerald green seas, where ancient monasteries cling to rocky cliffs and imposing stone churches speak of centuries past.

 

In a country famed for its beauty, the most iconic images associated with Montenegro are of the tiny islet named Sveti Stefan. Attached to the coast by a narrow isthmus, the island was once a fortified village dating back to the 15th century. Today, after a painstaking restoration, it is part of the luxury resort known as Aman Sveti Stefan, run by Amanresorts.
