Montenegro Travel Tips

Varying and stunning landscapes, charming old stone houses, and the cerulean Adriatic Sea make Montenegro an ideal spot for your travels.

The romantic and walled city of Kotor, Montenegro, came under Venetian reign during the 5th and 6th centuries, when Venice’s original settlers traveled from mainland Italy to avoid invading forces. The Venetian architecture, considered to be a melding of Byzantine, Islamic, and Latin Christian aesthetic styles, is easily noted in the buildings and murals of the city’s medieval old town. Due to this, the region was recognized in 1979 as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Discover among the winding streets and city squares, the famous Romanesque cathedral of St. Tryphon with gilded silver altar screen, considered one of the most valuable treasures of the city.

Along the east end of Kotor Bay is the small town of Tivat. Located in the smallest municipality, in the already small country of Montenegro, Tivat is known the its modern marina, Porto Montenegro, that moors luxurious yachts. Dfor its small Baroque church that’s set on a tiny islet in the bay known as Our Lady of the Rocks, the amazing beach at Plavi Horizonti, and the uninhabited green island known as Sveti Nikola (due to the whitewashed 16th-century St. Nichola’s Church that remains).
