Day at Perast

Perast - For us this is everything we think is the essence of Montenegro. Another UNESCO town, the population is probably less than 500 people and the town is closed to cars. It’s only maybe 10km from Kotor but it’s a different world, slow, sleepy and beautiful. Out in the water you can see two tiny islands St George and Our Lady of the Rock, where you can take boat trips out to. This is Balkan paradise. There is one area to swim, complete with a low-key beach bar, and perhaps a couple of dozen other swimmers. One of the best places in Montengro, hands down.

Lovcen National Park & Museum

Lovcen National Park and Njegos Mausoleum: This is an ABSOLUTE must see when you’re in Montengro. The national park is about a 40 minute drive from Cetinje and is dominated my Mt Lovcen, all 1750m of it. The real reason to come here, aside from the nature, is Njegos Mausoleum which was built on the national parks second highest peak, Jezerski. You can drive up to the top but you’re still required to climb the final 461 step yourself, once at the top you’re rewarded with views of up to 80% of the entire country on a clear day, it’s spectacular. The tomb is intriguing too, built within the mountain in cold marble.
