Kotor

Kotor
Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
When in Kotor, make a side trip to see Blue Grotto in Luštica, approximately Luštica away. The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Bay of Kotor, head outdoors with Mount Vrmac, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and delve into the distant past at St. Tryphon Cathedral.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Kotor trip planner.

Berlin, Germany to Kotor is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. Expect a daytime high around 27°C in May, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) to allow time to drive to Ulcinj.

Ulcinj
While on vacation in Ulcinj, you'll be able to experience two distinct cultures without having to put one foot out of Montenegro.

Žabljak ©
A trip to Zabljak takes you to the north of the country, a mountainous region that's as steeped in great scenery and views as it is in history and culture.

And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Black Lake, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Bobotov Kuk, get outside with Adventure Park Durmitor, and get your game on at Adventure Park Lovcen.
