The blue sea with its endless beaches, restless waters of the clear rivers and beautiful
mountain massifs, mixed with the spirit of its heritage, have given Montenegro everything
one needs for an unforgettable program.
The Bay of Kotor
Boka Kotorska or The Bay of Kotor is arguably the most beautiful place in Montenegro. It be longs to The Club of the most beautiful bays in the world since 2000, and through centuries it justifiably bears the nickname ‘’Pearl of the Adriatic’’.
Located between the Adriatic Sea and the vide limestone area the region of Boka Kotorska, the bay is under a
strong influence of Mediterranean and alpine climate. This special climate blend creates a distinguished Sub-
Mediterranean climate quite different from other part of M ontenegrin coast.
Boka is bejeweled by seven islands. Along the whole coast of Boka there is a chain of small towns and settlements all of w hich has its own story and history.
The Budva Riviera
The Budva Riviera is about 30 km long, and with several beautiful beaches is one of the best part of the
coast.The famous island of Sveti Stefan, first mentioned in historical manuscripts in the 15th century, lies 9km
southeast of Budva. According to a legend of the times, each of the 12 Pastrovic tribes built a house on the
Montenegrin towns are rich in architecture, from various periods that take the breath away and bring one back to the time when the structures were created.
Kotor is an old central city of Boka Kotorska. Through centuries the city prospered thanks to its position as a main point of t he trade crossroads, and the development of the maritime transport. Kotor is protected by t he UNESCO World Heritage Centre.
The old town of Budva exists as a settlement since ancient t imes. Historical sources and archeological evidence indicate that Budva was one of the first urban centers on the Adriatic, created over 2,500 years ago. The Old Town lies on a little island that was linked to the land by a sandbar and with time became a peninsula. It is surrounded by 15th century ramparts including a medieval fortification system with city gates, defence walls and towers built to protect from attacks by pirate and Turks.
Inside the walls, the town is a combination of narrow streets and little squares with valuable monuments of different Mediterranean cultures that marked its development.
In 1991, Montenegro became an ecological state. Its contribution to the preservation of nature and protection of its clear sea, rivers and air may be unique in Europe. This ‘green state’ protects its natural heritage by law, and ensures that sustainable development takes place at all times.
Montenegro’s small size and bountiful natural beauty create an array of incentive opportunities that simply must be experienced.
