  • Vacationing in Boka Kotorska Bay several times. Beautiful villages around it. Here the water is warmer and quieter. Around many wonderful hotels and villas, famous fish restaurants, where everything is always fresh. Medieval monuments of Parasols to Herceg Novi. In essence, this natural-historical Park. Each village there are lots of sights and its legends, rooted in the past. This is a great place for a lazy Beach holiday, and for numerous excursions. The ancient town of Kotor, numerous yachts, easy access to the ancient capital of Cetinje. Prices are lower than in other countries. Cordiality of Montenegrins, linguistic proximity and amazing Balkan cuisine in any cafe or restaurant. Here is quieter than in Budva. If you have an annoying noise discotheques and silly entertainment clutter-you in prčanj.

  • Impressive and unforgettable. We went from Croatia to Montenegro (day trip from Dubrovnik). On the way we met Still Herceg again. The Bay of Kotor is indescribable! Recommend!

  • I did base in the old city of Kotor and from there walked some of the surrounding cities. This I allowed to enjoy the Bay from a different point each day: Perast, Tivat, etc. But also you must admire the view from above... walking through the walls to the Castle San Giovanni, or by car from Lovćen. Stunning views

  • This is surely the most beautiful bay on Mediterranean sea! The sights are beautiful, water is mostly clear, cities are built in this old Mediterranean style, everything looks so perfect. 😊
  • Norwegian like fiord with Mediterranean climate. Beautiful
  • Absolutely loved the cruise into the bay from the Adriatic Sea. And Kotor itself is gorgeous.
  • Enjoyed the stop on our cruise. Very pretty area.
  • Go and enjoy views, high green mountains and clean sea. Wild construction is destroying fun more and more often.
