Our Top 10 Activities

1. Discover stunning Kotor

Explore Kotor– a moated-wall town, hosting a myriad of museums, Venetian palazzos and churches. The Bay of Kotor is often called Europe’s southernmost fjord but it is in fact a ria, a submerged river valley. This combination of landscape and culture contributed to Kotor earning UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979.

Sample authentic Montenegrin cuisine. Head to the coast for sumptuous Mediterranean-style seafood or further inland for something a little meatier. Awaken your taste buds with Njeguski Prsut i Sir – a smoked dried ham and cheese from Njegusi or sample Riblja Corba – a fish soup favourite along the Adriatic coast. And, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, try the delectable Ligne na Zaru – a healthy grilled squid dish.
