History

With a land area of about 5300 square miles and a population of approximately 700,000 people, this nation has a lot to say about its magnificently fascinating History. The name Montenegro is derived from “Crna Gora.” The name was an inspiration from Mount Lovcen and its surroundings since it was always dark. The name was first heard in 1276 AD during King Milutin’s charter. Before the 6th century CE, the area was primarily inhabited by Illyrians, who are today referred to as the ancestors of modern Albanians. Around the 7th century CE, Slav people migrated to this place, specifically, The Balkans. About 1600 years ago, after the split of the roman empire, Montenegro had sat between the eastern and the western side of the empire. That is where the borderline separates the two territories. Before 2006 Montenegro was part of Serbia. In that year, a referendum was conducted to determine whether Montenegro should become an independent state. A 55% margin of voters agreed to the motion, and it became an independent state. Montenegro is one of the youngest nations in Europe.
