Itinerary: Dubrovnik-Kotor-Budva-Dubrovnik, full day trip

 

A fabulous oportunity to experience a small, but beautiful country of Montenegro. Natural beauty will leave you breathless.

 

Crystal clear blue Adriatic Sea, long sandy beaches, stunning mountains, deep bays.

 

Apart from natural wonders, you can enjoy the country’s culture, history, cuisine and hospitable people.

 

This daily trip will take you to Kotor and Budva.

 

Kotor is a fortified city situated in a most secluded tip of Boka Kotorska bay, in the northern part of the Montenegro coast on the Adriatic Sea.

 

Kotor has developed around Stari Grad (local language for “old town”), the city’s old town and best known landmark, which is listed with UNESCO World heritage sites.

 

Kotor Bay is the deepest natural fjord-like bay in the Mediterranean Sea, and the scenery around it (including the steep mountains which come almost straight down to the waters edge) is spectacular.

 

Kotor is also unique because it is the only town on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea to be located by name in historic and strategic maps.

 

Old Kotor was built like a maze for protective purposes and it is very easy to get lost here. In fact, even the locals get lost.

 

Take a wrong turn and you will wind up far from your destination.

 

This can happen even with a town map in hand.

 

However, looking for landmarks, such as the 12th century St. Tryphon Cathedral, will help—and these landmarks are listed on nearly every tourist map.

 

The population of Kotor is multi-ethnic: less than half are Montenegrins, less than a third are Serbians, and a tenth are Croatians.

 

Kotor is still the seat of the Catholic Bishopric of Kotor, which covers the entire area surrounding the gulf of Kotor.

 

Budva is on the central part of Montenegrin coast, called “Budvanska Rivijera”.

 

It has developed around a small peninsula, on which the old town is situated.

 

It is by far the most visited destination in Montenegro, attracting tourists from all over the world with an old town, bars, nightclubs, and beaches.

 

It is base for mass tourism, while in its near vicinity there are luxury resorts such as Sveti Stefan and Miločer.

 

There are as many as 35 beaches in the Budva area, mostly rock and a little sand (8 beaches are marked with blue flags).

 

During the summer in particular, the day and night-life offers opportunities to enjoy theatre plays and performances, music events and entertainment programs.

 

Many nightclubs use go-go dancers to attract customers, and families might be offended by the open display of almost-naked girls in the street.

 

There is mainly one street, the main promenade, where all the action happens.

 

The old town, adjacent to the marina, is small but beautiful, with restaurants and boutiques selling luxury goods at high prices.
