Montenegro, often called the “Pearl of Adriatic”, is a country of unique beauty and dramatic contrast where beautiful mountains surround calm waters. Located in the South-eastern Adriatic, has 295- kilometer coastline. All in all, there are 120 beaches, with plenty of Blue Flags to go around. Montenegro presents a mix of the cultural influences of the Venetian, Ottoman and Hapsburg empires which makes it particularly attractive with great cultural diversity. With a mixture of both bustling cities and sleepy villages, it covers all bases. In Budva, the white-washed houses with sun-baked roofs are a picture- perfect Mediterranean scene, and the Medieval city is steeped in history – aside from Kotor, it’s got the only walled Old Town on Montenegro’s coast. After dark,the town comes alive with a vibrant nightlife. Further north is Rose, a peaceful hamlet on the Lustica peninsula. Far away from the tourist traps, Rose is still traditionally from Montenegro, and offers some of the best locally caught seafood in the region. The Bay of Kotor is the jewel in Montenegro’s crown. Here, looming mountains meet the Mediterranean, and a 28-kilometer bay extends inwards between the peaks. A World Heritage Site for nearly 40 years, this submerged river valley is home to many towns and villages, including the fortified hillside town of Kotor, the bay’s namesake. It was once owned by the Venetians, and the influence is very noticeable, with the architecture and cuisine of the bay’s settlements showing off an Italian flavor.
