Introduction
Montenegro, a southeastern European country, was part of Yugoslavia beginning in 1918. After Yugoslavia dissolved in 1992, Montenegro, along with Serbia, became part of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. In 2006, the country declared its independence. The Adriatic Sea lies to its southwest, and it is bordered by Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, and Albania. The country's total area is 5,333 square miles (13,812 sq km). Montenegro is known for both its picturesque coast and rugged, mountainous interior.

Population and language
An estimated 660,000 people live in Montenegro. The official language, Montenegrin, is virtually indistinguishable from Serbian. In addition to Serbian, Bosnian, Albanian, and Croatian are also spoken here. The population is comprised of 46% Montenegrins, 29% Serbs, and 9% Bosniaks, along with smaller groups of Albanians, Muslims, and Croats. Most Montenegrins are Orthodox Christians. Islam serves as another official language of Montenegro, with a sizable number of Sunni Muslim Montenegrins.

Major cities and tourist destinations
The capital and largest city, Podgorica, has an estimated 156,000 residents. Niksic, the second largest city, has 75,000 residents. All other towns within Montenegro are inhabited by 25,000 or fewer people.

The landscape of Montenegro (or “black mountain”) is varied, from Mediterranean beaches to deep canyons to dense forests in the mountainous regions. The coastal region of Ulcinj South Coast is particularly popular among tourists, as is Lake Skadar, on the border with Albania. Tara River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site within Durmitor National Park.

The country also has many historical and cultural sites such as monuments from the pre-Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque periods. Popular tourist destinations include the Cathedral of Saint Tryphon in Kotor and the basilica of St. Luke. The old town of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a well-preserved Medieval town.

Climate
Montenegro offers a Mediterranean climate. Summers are hot and dry. Winters are relatively cold, with heavy snowfall inland, in the mountains.

Economy
Wars fought in neighboring countries throughout the 1990s crippled the economy of Montenegro, though since then the country has made great strides in recovery. Today, Montenegro is considered a middle-income country with a primarily service-based economy. The nation's GDP is estimated at $4.5 billion USD, with imports valued at $2.5 billion USD and exports valued at $664 million USD. Tourism, aluminum and steel production, and agricultural processing are important contributors to the Montenegrin economy. The Euro has served as Montenegro's currency since 2002.

Transportation
Montenegro has two international airports: Podgorica Airport and Tivat Airport. Podgorica is the largest, and is located 7.5 miles (12km) south of the city center. Tivat Airport is located on the Montenegrin coast, and has regular international flights only to Belgrade.

Despite an extensive network of roadways, most roads are two-lane only, tend to be curvy and mountainous, and may not be well-maintained. Buses are an easy way to get around Montenegro, with frequent service, especially during the summer. There are a few trains to and from Belgrade. This is a very scenic route through rugged terrain, though it is also both fast and cheap. However, service is not as frequent as buses, and the railway offers only limited routes.
