Driving 40 km south from Dubrovnik towards the border takes you to Montenegro. A wild land where mountains drop straight into the sea and delightful towns such as Perast, Kotor and Budva, cling to the coastline on the route south from the border with Croatia.

In Montenegro we drive along the main coastal road through some small places by the sea. Our first stop will be a viewpoint, before the town Perast, to the Kotor bay and the two gorgeous, small islands in the middle of the bay.

From Perast we take a short boat drive to the island “Lady of the Rock”. This small island is a man-made islet, with a sailors' votive shrine by the same name. The islet was built by constant heaping up of stones that started in the middle of the 15th century with a museum, and has been going on, to some extent, to this day. The islet covers an area of 3030 square meters. A local guide will explain the history of this island and its church.

After spending some time admiring the beautiful nature and getting to know some more information about the islands and their history, we drive to Kotor, our stop for the next two hours-

The old town of Kotor is a well-obtained center from the Middle Ages, built between the 12th and the 14th Century, with many Latin and Gothic churches, facades, palaces and museums.

Further on, there is one more town we visit – Budva – a 3,500 years old town, one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic Sea coast. It is the capital of Montenegrin tourism and the administrative centre of Budva municipality. Scholars and historians believe that the old town area of Budva originally was an island, which later joined the shore to form a sand isthmus. We explore the old town part of Budva with its interessting narrow streets and old churches for about an hour before heading back towards Croatia, this time with a ferry crossing the chanel of Kotor Bay.

Please do not forget to take your passport or an identity card with you on this trip and of course a camera with enough memory so you can relive this great day you had, over and over.
