|Montenegro officially the Republic of
Montenegro ( Republika Crna Gora), is a country located in Southeastern Europe.
It has a coast on the Adriatic Sea to the south, and borders Croatia on the west, Bosnia
and Herzegovina on the northwest, Serbia on the northeast and Albania on the southeast.
Its de facto capital and largest city is Podgorica, while Cetinje is designated as
Prijestonica the old royal capital, or seat of the throne.De facto independent from the
late Middle Ages, and an internationally recognised country from 1878 until 1918, the
country was later a part of various incarnations of Yugoslavia and the state union of
Serbia and Montenegro. Based on the results of a referendum held on May 21, 2006,
Montenegro declared independence on June 3, 2006. On June 28, Montenegro became the 192nd
member state of the United Nations. Montenegro's native name, Crna Gora, first mentioned
in 11th century in Vatican documents and translates literally to "black
mountain," a reference to the dark forests that once covered the slopes of the
Dinaric Alps as seen from the coast. The country's name in most Western European
languages, including English, reflects an adoption of the Venetian-language term monte
negro, also meaning "black mountain," which probably dates back to the era of
Venetian hegemony over the area in the Middle Ages..On June 3, 2006, the Parliament of
Montenegro declared the independence of Montenegro, formally confirming the result of the
referendum on independence. Serbia did not obstruct the ruling, confirming its own
independence and declaring the Union of Serbia and Montenegro ended shortly thereafter.
Capital: Podgorica ( 211,788 inhabitants)
