Finding its feet as a tourist destination, Montenegro has the beauty of Croatia without the high price tag, along with a few jaw-dropping gems of its own. The Bay of Kotor ranks as one of the most gorgeous destinations I’ve visited, and delightful Montenegro has plenty more up its sleeve.
My Montenegro Highlights
Here’s where I got to in Montenegro. Click the destination name for related blog posts.
This spectacular bay is the country’s highlight, with delightful towns scattered around the lake, each with charming Old Towns. Then, just to top it off, the rolling hills which surround the bay make for excellent walks and hikes. I can’t say enough good things about this place.
Right at the bottom of the country, close to the Albanian border, Ulcinj is a refreshingly laid-back beach holiday town. There’s plenty of tasty and cheap restaurants here, a half-decent beach, a great Old Town and some belting coastal walks.
