Best Places To Get Married In Montenegro
Montenegro is a petite country in the south-east of Europe, next to Croatia and opposite of Italy. Because of it's location in southern Europe, Montenegro is really easy to get to. There are four International Airports you can use to get here so you'll have no trouble finding a connection from any European centre.
Montenegro has just under 300km of coastline along the Adriatic Sea, of which about 50km are beaches. This is where most people stay during their holiday. Montenegro is busiest during the long, hot summer (June-August). We prefer visiting in spring or early autumn, when the temperatures are still high enough for swimming but it's easier to explore the country's stunning landscape. As autumn progresses into winter, rainstorms become more prevalent and many coastal businesses close;
First, we will start with a bit of bureaucracy. To get married in Montenegro there are no residency requirements but you must give the notice to marry at least 7 days before the ceremony takes place. The legal age for marriage is 18 years for both men and women and all your documents must be translated by an official translator and stamped with an apostille.
Hotel Forza Mare, Montenegro
Forza Mare and Forza Terra are family-owned, five-star, boutique hotels with authentic designs on equal footing with the warmth of their hospitality. On the waterside 'old road' in Dobrota, formerly a sleepy village of old stone villas, but now a hive of tourist development, within walking distance of Kotor (two and a half miles), with its lovely Unesco-listed medieval-walled Old Town. A carefully designed boutique hotel with touch of unashamed extravagance, hidden away in a dramatically beautiful location. With playful contemporary interior design, each room is themed around a different country, region or city.

Tivat (11km) is the closest airport, but many people fly into Dubrovnik (66km) before self-driving along the coast to Montenegro. It is also possible to fly into Podgorica (80km), the Montenegrin capital city. Click on the links below for a list of airlines serving these airports.

Our Lady of the Rocks, Perast, Montenegro
Our Lady of The Rocks situated off the coast of Perast, is the only island on the Adriatic created by human hand. Legend has it that fishermen found a picture of Virgin Mary on a rock that protruded from the sea and decided to give it to St. Nicolas church in Perast. As the picture kept returning to the rock in inexplicable ways, the locals assumed it was a miracle and decided to form an artificial island there. In 17th century, a beautiful catholic church was constructed on the island and the picture was placed in it.
