These are some MUST visit places in Montenegro!
Located in the middle part of the Bay of Kotor, adjacent to the narrow channel that opens out to the Adriatic, Perast is a tiny hillside town sandwiched between the coast and the mountains. Its single main street is overflowing with pretty architecture, crumbling bell towers and romantic seaside cafes.
Instead of cruise ships, small boats ferrying people back and fort to Our Lady of the Rocks. The only artificial island in the Adriatic, it was constructed from old shipwrecks and stones at the site where a vision of the Virgin Mary appeared to two local fishermen.
KOTOR OLD TOWN
It wouldn’t be a trip to Montenegro without visiting the country’s most popular destination and crowning glory, Kotor. The UNESCO World Heritage Listed Kotor Old Town is among the most enchanting fortified town centres on the Adriatic.Medieval Roman churches, Venetian palaces and towering Byzantine towers reveal the legacy of the many different empires that have occupied Kotor over the centuries. Under the shadow of the legendary St. John’s Fort, the myths and tales surrounding Kotor will keep you enthralled.
BUDVA OLD TOWN
A more glamorous (and touristy) version of Kotor, Budva is the most-visited destination in Montenegro and a popular cruise ship port in the summer months. Jaz beach and the Riviera have become a playground for the rich and famous.
Budva might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s worth braving the crowds to wander the stone alleyways and narrow streets of the medieval fortified city, Stari Grad, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As Montenegro’s old royal capital, Cetinje is packed with history. The Blue Palace, Cetinje Monastery and the national museum showcase Montenegrin history and culture, while King Nikola’s Court offers a fascinating look into Montenegro’s royal past.
LOVCEN / MOUNTAIN
Lovcen National Park sits above Kotor at the south-eastern tip of the bay. From the western side, you can catch a panoramic view of the entire bay – and the best sunset in all of Montenegro.
The highlight is visiting the Mausoleum of Petar II Petrovic-Njegos at thr top of Mount Lovcen .
Dedicated to Montenegro’s most beloved national hero – a prince, poet and philosopher who was born nearby in Cetinje – it’s a surreal piece of architecture that can only be accessed by climbing a very long set of undercover stairs.
The design, which includes a chapel adorned with 200,000 gold tiles and a pitch-black burial chamber, has divided Montenegrins. Some people love it, others hate it. Whichever way you fall, you’ll agree that the view from the round viewing platform at the back of the mausoleum is hard to beat.
Located close to Montenegro’s second-largest city, Niksic, Ostrog Monastery is the country’s most sacred Orthodox Christian site and a major draw for pilgrims from around the world. Even if you don’t have a religious bone in your body, I’m sure you’ll agree that the monastery is an absolute marvel.
Shimmering white against a bed of ochre stone, Ostrog is perched on a mountain cliff 900m above the lush Zeta valley. The upper monastery dates back to 1665 and is dedicated to St. Basil. It comprises numerous candle-lit cloisters and open balconies set within two large caves, which gives the impression that the monastery has been carved out of the rock.
Central Montenegro isn’t just easy on the eye, it’s also bountiful in flora and fauna. The waters of Lake Skadar are shared between Montenegro and Albania, but the richest, marshiest part of the lake lies on the Montenegrin side.
Skadar is the largest lake on the Balkan Peninsula, covering an area of over 500 square-kilometres. Despite its size, it’s a true hidden gem in Europe that has somehow managed to avoid the limelight. It’s a nesting ground for endemic and migratory birds (more than 280 bird species in total). On the other side of the lake, the Albanian city of Skadar is the gateway to the Accursed Mountains.

PARAGLIDING OVER BUDVA
Paragliding is one of the types of active and rather extreme sport, to know which is destined only for true brave people.
