Kotor

When you arrive in the Bay of Kotor and visit the town of the same name, you wonder whether you have landed in Montenegro or in Norway. The landscape is similar to a Norwegian fjord and the view goes from water to beautiful mountains. This picturesque landscape and the beautiful town of Kotor have become more and more of a visitor magnet in recent years. The short hike up to the fortress of Kotor is especially recommended; once you have climbed the 1,350 steps you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view. Those who do not wish to climb the stairs all the way to the top can also stop midway at the church “Our lady of health” and enjoy the view from there. For detailed information, please also read our article on Kotor.

Herceg Novi

Herceg Novi is situated in the west of Montenegro at the entrance to the Bay of Kotor. Thanks to the many sunny days, Herceg Novi is often called the "city of the sun". Already at the end of January, the mild climate helps the mimosas to bloom and the whole town is perfumed accordingly. Here, you will find an old town centre that is home to numerous historical buildings such as the Spanjola Fortress from 1538 and the Forte Mare Fortress from 1687.

Budva

Budva is a very popular destination on the Montenegrin coast, especially during summer. The city is exciting and full of contrasts. On the one hand, there is the historic old town with its old Venetian buildings, cultural treasures, and literary events. On the other hand, there is the new vibrant Budva with its colourful nightlife, great restaurants and bars, and beautiful beaches all around. Pay a visit to this little town and get inspired by the diversity.

Petrovac

Petrovac is located about 40 kilometres south of Tivat and is a beautiful small coastal town that invites you to spend your beach holidays there. The place is very popular with families. Lucice Beach, Buljarica Beach, and the main beach of Petrovac with its fine pebbles are only three of the many beautiful seashores where children can splash around in the water. An insider tip is the small village of Perazića Do with its turquoise blue water and not far away from Petrovac.
