Podgorica is the capital and largest city of Montenegro. The Old Town and Hram Hristovog Vaskrsenja are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Long Beach (Velika plaza) and Skadar Lake National Park. Explore Podgorica's surroundings by going to Skadar Lake National Park (in Virpazar), Sutomore (Sutomore Beach & Red Beach), Beach Velika Plaza (in Ulcinj) and Biogradska Gora National Park (in Kolasin). It doesn't end there: take in the views from Millennium Bridge and admire the striking features of Bar Stari Grad.

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.
City Walls and Altstadt (Old Town) Budva will appeal to history buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Citadel and R.K.C. Gospa od Škrpjela. Get out of town with these interesting Kotor side-trips: Plavi Horizonti Beach (in Radovici), Milocher Park (in Sveti Stefan), Becici Beach (in Becici) and Ploce Beach (in Budva). On the 29th (Sat), spend a relaxing day on the river with a rafting and tubing tour. And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Bay of Kotor, step into the grandiose world of Kotor’s Castle Of San Giovanni, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Mary's Church, and stroll through Jaz Beach.

To find more things to do, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Kotor travel itinerary planner.

You can drive from Podgorica to Kotor in 1.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. Traveling from Podgorica in July, plan for little chillier nights in Kotor, with lows around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
