Montenegro is a destination that is soaring, with plenty of

assets! Stretching over 295 km of coastline including 72 km

of beaches, it is home to some remarkably well-preserved

medieval towns along Montenegro’s Adriatic coast, which is

considered one of the great “discoveries” of tourism in recent

years. The unmissable towns include:

• The islet of Sveti Stefan, built in the fi eenth century as a

fishing village, has become a hotel town and the most luxurious

tourist location and most photographed place in Montenegro

• Budva, the “party capital” of Montenegro, seen as the “Monte

Carlo” of the Adriatic. At night, Budva is full of activities: it is a

perfect place to sip cocktails, listen to live music or dance the

night away

• The ancient town of Stari Bar, full of architectural wonders

from the Byzantine, Venetian and O oman eras, o ers a

magical walk with stunning panoramic views of the Adriatic

and the surrounding mountains

• The old walled city of Kotor and the romantic village of Perast,

nestled in the spectacular bay of Kotor, move even the most

demanding visitors
