There are many good things said about Montenegro.



Kotor is one of the best preserved medieval ports in Europe.

Cruise ship passengers disembark in the afternoons… day-trippers arrive from Croatia…

With lively street life, Kotor can get noisy at night so consider sleeping in one of the neighboring seaside villages (like Dobrota and Perast)




Is 5 mins drive or 30 mins walk from Old Town Kotor.

Herceg Novi

My Initial Thoughts…

My tourism and retirement targets are:

  • Anywhere on the Adriatic coast
  • Ulcinj
  • Bar
  • Budva
  • Kotor / Perast / Dobrota / Herceg Novi
  • Jezero Krupac
  • Mojkovac

Montenegro could be one of the hidden jewels of the region.

I think that Bosnia & Herzegovina could be too (but I’m not getting there on this trip). Croatia is definitely a jewel but so are the prices!

I am hoping to find the Croatia of old in Montenegro… Croatia at a better price…

My target is the whole of the Adriatic coast. Budva gets mixed reviews. My main target is Kotor and its surrounds.

I doubt that I’ll have time to get inland but I will if I can.


The next stop in my journey will be Greece.
