Montenegro Geography

Ranging from towering peaks along the Serbian and Albanian borders to a small coastal plain, Montenegro is home to a diverse landscape due to its position on the Balkan peninsula and Adriatic Sea.

Consisting of some of the most rugged terrain in Europe, Montenegro's most notable mountain ranges include the Durmitor range, Mount Orjen and Mount Lovcen.

The highest point is Bobotov Kuk, located in the Durmitor range, with an elevation of 8,274 ft (2,522 m).

East, along the Adriatic Sea, a prominent element on the Montenegrin coast is a submerged river canyon known as the Bay of Kotor.

Significant rivers of Montenegro include the Drina, Tara and Lim. Montenegro's largest lake is Lake Skadar, and is shared with Albania.
