Physical characteristics

The territory, mainly mountainous (Monte Durmitor, 2522 m), has different aspects; to the West of the Zeta river the limestone formations prevail, rich in karst phenomena, which give the relief (Lovćen, 1749 m; Orjen, 1895 m) a barren aspect where the massifs are often separated by deep gorges; to the East, in the Sinjajevina plateau, located SE of the Durmitor massif, the limestones (often associated with schists that towards the E increasingly increase in extension) are less pure and the karst phenomena, less important, allow the development of woods. The N side of the Albanian Alps (Prokletije) joins the Komovi (2484 m) and Bjelasica (2137 m) ridges, where the highland nature is less evident. Also in this part the hydrography is well marked and has given rise to the formation of deep gorges. It is therefore possible to distinguish the Montenegro calcareo (to the W) from the Montenegro schistoso (to the E). The main plain, Shkodra, half of which is in the territory of Montenegro. The climate is very different from area to area: the narrow coastal strip has a Mediterranean climate; the calcareous territories behind them have many continental characteristics. Precipitation is abundant, but concentrated in a few days (80-85). Much of the western mountain, given the karst nature, is devoid of superficial hydrography; to East instead some tributaries of the Drina flow from S to N (Piva, Tara, Lim). AO prevails a poor vegetation of woods, rich in scrubs and oak woods, in E instead the forest mantle is well preserved and continues the woods of Bosnia. There are four national parks: Lake Skadar (the largest), Durmitor, Lovćen and Biograd mountain (Biogradska Gora).

According to Countryaah, the national day of Montenegro is May 21.

Carnival

Montenegrin and foreign carnival groups take part in a parade and in the celebrations. They wear magnificent costumes, dance and make music. Some locals dress up as favorite characters from films or fairy tales, similar to what you might know from Mardi Gras or Carnival here.

The most popular children’s parties

Everyone likes to take part in Montenegrin festivals! But some celebrations are something very special, especially for children. For example, there is the Mimosa Festival in the city of Herceg Novi. In addition to the festivities, it is about disguises. Similar to carnival, the children slip into the role of their heroes, role models or favorite characters.

On Orthodox Easter Monday, the children are allowed to paint eggs. These are blessed during midnight mass. After mass, the children are allowed to break the eggs at home and eat them.
