Krnovo Plateau

Places of interest
Krnovo is a mountain plateau located in the central part of Montenegro, about 20 kilometres away from Nikšić, and 50 km north of the capital Podgorica. The average height of this plateau is 1500 m and because of its appearance and climate, many call it the 'Montenegrin Tibet'.

The Krnovo Plateau is widely known for its numerous katuns and flocks of sheep in the past. It is even more famous for its strong winds and blizzards that took many lives and intimidated occasional travellers. The average annual temperature in Krnovo is only 5 degrees Celsius.

Krnovo is a sparsely populated area, mainly consisting of agricultural land that is cultivated from spring to autumn and the number of cattle breeders have also increased recently due to the ecological conditions provided by mountain pastures.

Due to the proximity of the Durmitor National Park and due to its wild beauty, Krnovo is becoming an increasingly desirable tourist destination for guests not only from Montenegro but also from the surrounding countries.

Krnovo is a place where 26 wind farms are located since 2016, which provide electricity to more than 50.000 households. The installation of the windfarms has increasingly contributed to the popularity of the location, as many people still come to see these grandiose objects.
