Top Places to visit in Montenegro
Sveti Stefan is a unique place along the Budva Riviera. It stands on a rocky island crammed full of terracotta-roofed houses. A narrow isthmus connects it with the mainland. From the 15th century Sveti Stefan housed a simply fishing community. In the 1950s someone had the idea to nationalize the tiny village. The residents were evicted and Sveti Stefan was transformed into a luxury town-hotel. Among its guests were Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren and Kirk Douglas. It fell into decline during the breakup of the former Yugoslav federation.
Kotor City Walls
Protecting the city of Kotor are large fortifications that have been serving citizens of the town for well over 1000 years. The Kotor walls shield the city on it’s northern face, south-western sides, along the waters of the bay and Skurda River. The barriers connect and protect the major waterways that have helped this town thrive and stand the test of time. Climb to the top of the walls for a spectacular view of the bay and city.
Situated toward the northwest of Kotor and having the same exquisite fjord-like narrows, lovely Perast is a residential area remarkable for it stone-made estates and noteworthy houses of worship. Two of the city’s pleasant churches are arranged on little islets, the Lady of the Rocks and St. George. Back inland, the Church of St. Nikola is justified regardless of a visit for the wonderful perspectives that an ascend to the tower offers of the town and straight. While there’s no shoreline in this cove front city, the stone piers along the waterfront are famous spots for sunbathing and unwinding.
Budva is a big city located right by the sea that has gained huge popularity among the tourists and not without a reason. Dozens of restaurants to suit any wallet, intense night life, long clean beaches with lots of attractions and facilities, numerous shops, beautiful old town and energetic new one, various hotels and villas make Budva everything you may look for during a trip.
Located at the southern tip of Montenegro near the Albanian border, Ulcinj is an ancient seaport once known as the pirate capital of the Adriatic Sea. Today, the city is most famous for its many beautiful beaches, of which the sandy stretch of Plazhe e Mahed, or Long Beach, is one of the most popular. The offshore island of Ad Bojana features several scenic beaches as well. Minarets rising from mosques in this largely Muslim city add to Ulcinj’s unique appeal, and a stroll along the seaside promenade to enjoy a tasty kebab or rich cup of coffee is just one of the experiences that makes a visit to Ulcinj so memorable.
Ostrog is the most popular place in Montenegro among pilgrims. But this place is worth visiting irrespectively of one’s religious views. Located high up in the huge rock of Ostroška Greda, the monastery was founded in the 17th century being placed against almost vertical rocky background.
