Holidays & Observances in Montenegro

Montenegro is a European country on the Adriatic Sea. It has been affected by many cultures throughout its history, and it has been connected with Serbia for many years. It only separated from Serbia in 2006, so the cultures of the two countries go hand in hand. In fact, the Serbian language is about equally as popular as Montenegrin. Most Montenegrins are members of the Serbian Orthodox church, but Islam is also a fairly popular religion. Serbian Orthodoxy affects many parts of Montenegro’s culture, especially holidays. The most important holidays are Christian holidays such as Easter and Christmas. The Serbian Orthodox Church follows the Julian calendar, so its holidays are celebrated on different dates than the standard Gregorian calendar dates.
