Things to do in Montenegro
Perhaps ranking among the top things to do in Montenegro is taking a trip around the towns to absorb all of the natural and cultural beauty that is omnipresent in this wonderfully charming country along the coast. Choosing a base from which to do so is important and the UNESCO town of Kotor and the old settlement of Perast are infinitely full of character and perfect for the task in hand. Parading the numerous fortified walls, Kampana Tower and the looming castle in Kotor are great ways to start your holidays here, but with national parks and stunning mountainous terrain to juxtapose the medieval monuments you won’t be left without something to view or peruse during your stay.
The immense coastline stretching along the deep blue of the Adriatic Sea, this is the overriding image of Montenegro, sprawling beaches of sand backed by dramatic mountains or architecturally-striking old towns – the coast is a haven for those hunting for the best of both worlds during their time in Montenegro. Head toBar to experience some wonderful coastal indulgence while on your Montenegro holidays, enjoyed both on the sand and within the vibrant beachfront dining and drinking scene discovered in the town. 4km back from the coast is the old town of Bar, home to an immense set of landmarks and towering buildings, as well as, apparently, the world’s oldest olive tree.
Budva is another famed destination for those seeking the joys of the Adriatic, with some stunning beach resorts and coastal towns lining this coastline, including the breath-taking vistas of the island at Sveti Stefan and the coastal tourist resort of Becici, recognised for its laid-back atmosphere and 2km-long beach. Those inclined to explore culture and history during their holidays in Montenegro would do well in a visit to Kotor, boasting an incredible UNESCO old town, home to palaces, churches and ancient walls, while the capital city, Podgorica, is also known for its mesmerising old town, full of beautiful mosques and an imposing clock tower – providing some great respite from the coast, if you can draw yourself away from it for long enough.
