The Durmitor mountain range.

Durmitor is a mountain and the name of a national park in Montenegro. It reaches a height of 2,522 meters with the mountain of Bobotov Kuk. The name Durmitor is probably derived from Balkan Romance, and it means “sleeping” (cognate with English dormitory). There are similarly named mountains such as Visitor (visator, “dreaming”) and Cipitor ( atipitor, “sleeping”) across ex-Yugoslavia. Another etymology could be from Celtic meaning “mountain with water”.
