Two cyclists on a cycle path over serpentines into the Bay of Kotor

Seventy peaks over two thousand meters, the southernmost fjord in the Mediterranean and the deepest canyon in Europe. Everything is located in Montenegro and in a small area like the size of the Wales. You drive on roads surrounded by mighty mountain peaks or through the deepest canyon in Europe, follow the shoreline of Lake Skadar and finally reach the magically beautiful Bay of Kotor. Montenegro has been sandwiched between East and West since the days of the Roman Empire and has been influenced by different cultures over the past two thousand years.
