One of the youngest independent nations in Europe, Montenegro nevertheless has a rich and storied history. A member state of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia for much of the 20th century, it finally declared independence from its union with the neighbor state of Serbia in 2006. In the subsequent decade, the country has seen considerable economic growth and social development. Many expats are drawn to investment opportunities in key industries such as tourism, energy and construction. Tourism is a particularly important element of Montenegro's economic success, with many expatriates taking advantage of favorable conditions in the country to set up or invest in local businesses that serve the thousands of holidaymakers who flock to Montenegro's stunning beach resorts every year. The overall picture of Montenegro is of a welcoming and enterprising nation that welcomes visitors with open arms, with beautiful scenery and a relaxed pace of life offering a wide variety of pleasures to settling expats.
