Climbing the hairpins with views of Kotor bay, this road leads to Lovcen National Park and a very different scenery in very few Ks.
It is a mountain road as it is expected. Great ride great experience. If traveling from Kolasin to Andrijevica be aware of the trucks doing lodging. They might come out of the corner really fast. Road is closed in winter. Dangerous but great to ride.
Excellent ride through a mountainous national park in Montenegro (Crna Gora). The route I took was through Durmitor, Montenegro's premier national park (a great ski destination in winter), on a narrow road 1.5 lane road in late May, 2018.
There was some snow remaining on the side of the road in parts, but any moisture on the road was snow melt (water) and not icy. But, the elevation is such that there could be issues with snow and ice on the road in anything but high summer.
I have some pics, but for the best idea of what this road is like, please watch the 7-minute YouTube video I will upload.
Very nice route along the river, among steep walls. Canyon-like.
Route to reach the fabulous SH 20.
Very nice route to be ridden quite fast.
Das Durmitor Gebirge ist eine außergewöhnlich schöne Landschaft. Die Strasse von Zabljak hoch ist mittlerer weile asphaltiert und in einem sehr guten Zustand. Sie ist eng, aber gut fahrbar.
Nicht racen, sondern reisen und genießen ist hier angesagt.
Weiter über Pluzine nach Niksic ist ebenfalls empfehlenswert (andere bereits beschriebene Strecken).
Nach Pluzine runterwärts hat man tolle Blicke auf den Pivsko Jezero.
Weiter nach Niksic ist eine neue, gut ausgebaute Strasse, die ein höheres Tempo vertragen würde, wenn in Montenegro nicht so viel gelasert würde.
Travel from the Old Royal Capital of Montenegro Cetinje. Cetinje itself has a great no vehicle walkway thru the center with lots of coffee bars to sit and watch the world go by. Or take a tour of the old royal palaces around the city. There is a map and the tour is well marked.
The ride to Njegusi is thru the Lovcen National Park its a spectacular ride and Njegusi is the home of the best smoked ham and cheeses reputedly in the whole of the Balkan area. Then make a simple local cheese that can be bought quite inexpensively in the local grocery shop, it looks cake shaped and is pale. The ham comes in hocks or you can buy smaller peices also. Probably at some point a local will invite you into his shed where many of the hocks are hanging up - aging....
There are many beautiful destinations, primarily because of the St. Basil and his miracle-working relics.
This is my daily destinations with my Yamaha XT600 E:)

Another chicken strips fixer, lots of corners great asphalt and visibility, low traffic, mountain canyon with nice views.
One great road to fix any eventual chicken strips you may have. Lots of corners, great asphalt and visibility, low traffic, great scenery sea and mountain. A small detour in Bigradska National Park (and lake) for a superb view.
Great mountain plateau view, large number of corners, the road is very narrow and tiring, but worth taking only for the scenery.
Breathtaking view over the Kotor fjord like, mountains and very twisty road down to Kotor. This road (not necessarily the road on the map) takes you from Cetinje - through the Lovcen National Park - to Kotor.
A road that pass from 3 countries, so keep your passports in your tank bag ;) A really spectacular route with no traffic at all, great corners and great great great viewsâ€¦
Kotor bay is the biggest bay in southern Europe. The views over Kotor are spectacular. Lots of continues hairpins leads down to Kotor
