Montenegroโ€™s terrain, besides being known for its mountainous nature, especially in the north, is also heavily calcareous. There are also a number of karstic mountains and poljes prevalent in the central and western regions of the country, particularly along the coast. Certain valleys in Montenegro host swaths of fertile lowlands and plains, such as the Zeta River Valley near south-eastern Montenegro. The largest lake in the country is Lake Skadar, which resides inside a depressed karstic polje. Skadar sits on the border of Montenegro and Albania, though about 60 percent of it is located in Montenegrin territory. The Drina River, coming from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia in the north, splits into several notable tributaries inside Montenegro, including the rivers Tara, Piva, and Lim. The coastal Mediterranean climate is moderate throughout most of the year, though its sunny summers can get rather hot, and precipitation occurs the most during autumn and winter. Inland locations that are still at sea level, such as Montenegroโ€™s capital, Podgorica, typically face hotter summers and colder winters than sea level along the coast. As elevations increase with Montenegroโ€™s continental mountains and hills, winters get colder and snowfall becomes more frequent. Meanwhile, summers remain warm and pleasant, and average amounts of sunshine decrease as elevations increase. On Montenegroโ€™s highest mountains, especially toward the northern border with Serbia, the climate gets colder and resembles the climate of the Alps, with occasional cold waves that come through. These features make it possible for those who dare to get up in the early morning to see many beautiful mist views. Whether in the far high north or the lower coastal strip.
