Situated near the Durmitor National Park, this 19C town is recognized as Montenegro's center for mountain tourism.

Zabljak is a small town in northern Montenegro. The town is in the center of the Durmitor mountain region and with an altitude of 1,456m, it is the highest situated town on the Balkans.

After the war, Zabljak rebuilt itself and became Montenegro's center for winter sports.
