  1. Absolutely. I think I will write more about Montenegro soon. Today a friend of mine posted on my blog about Serbia. It will be great to read it as it connect with this article. I am going to write in the next months about activities in Montenegro maybe too. Mainly because it is getting so popular. I think because Croatia is getting very expensive. Montenegro use already the Euro. And because it not belong to the EU it is something more special. Many American cruises already sale on Montenegro. If you go there make sure you visit Kotor. I will post more about Kotor on my site soon.
