Best of Montenegro – Kotor & Budva tour (full day)

 

With a population of a bigger European’s city suburb (650.000), Montegro is an enchanting little country full of extreme geographical diversities.
Great mountains with snow peaks, steep fiord-like hills almost vertically diving into the Adriatic sea,mountain lakes full of fish, mystical monasteries carved in the solid rock, sandy and sunny beaches that go on for miles alongside the coast….that is all Montenegro.

We start our tour from Dubrovnik driving south alongside Adriatic coast passing cities of Cavtat and Konavle region and soon cross the border to Montenegro (do not forget your passports). We are driving alongside the Kotor bay (Europe’s most southern fiord)passing the cities Igalo, Herceg Novi (two great Turkish, later Venetian fortresses), Bijela, Kamenari stopping for a photo-stop in front of magical Perast – city of Seamen and 2 small islands with churches (St. George and Our Lady of the Rocks/Gospa od Škrpjela), we continue through Risan, stop at Perast while guide explains major buildings and its rich history and finally reach the city of Kotor, nested in the very bottom of Kotor bay surrounded by formidable verticals of neighboring mountains.
