Fjord & Cove Swimming Montenegro | 7 days  http://www.strel-swimming.com

Montenegro was a former constituent of the Republic of Yugoslavia and it lies on the Adriatic coast, nestled between Croatia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Kosovo. It is steeped in history stretching back millennia. Many call the country a “crossroads of civilizations” where the East and the West cultures meet. In the 1990s it was caught in the brutal wars that plagued the Balkans, which horrified the world as it played out on our TV screens.
