The capital of Montenegro is Podgorica.
Countries neighbouring Montenegro are: Bosnia-Herzegovina,
Serbia, Kosovo and Albania.
The use of the name Montenegro began in the 15th century, when the
Crnojevic dynasty began to rule the Serbian principality of Zeta.
Over subsequent centuries Montenegro was able to maintain its
independence from the Ottoman Empire.
From the 16th to 19th centuries, Montenegro became a theocracy ruled
by a series of bishop princes; in 1852, it was transformed into a secular principality.
After World War I, Montenegro was absorbed by the Kingdom of Serbs,
Croats, and Slovenes, which became the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1929. After World War II
it became a constituent republic of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
When the latter dissolved in 1992, Montenegro federated with Serbia,
first as the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and, after 2003, in a looser union of Serbia
In May 2006, Montenegro invoked its right under the Constitutional
Charter of Serbia and Montenegro to hold a referendum on independence from the state
The vote for severing ties with Serbia exceeded 55% - the threshold
set by the EU - allowing Montenegro to formally declare its independence on 3rd June 2006.
