Podgorica

— 4 nights
One of Europe's most relaxed and newest capital cities, Podgorica sits on the confluence of two rivers, with two sides of it offering two different options for exploring.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Morača River and St. George's Church. Popular historic sites such as Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ and Dajbabe Monastery are in your itinerary. Step out of Podgorica to go to Bare and see Morača Monastery, which is approximately 1h 10 min away. Spend the 20th (Sat) exploring nature at Biogradska Gora National Park. There's more to do: explore the activities along Lake Skadar and snap pictures at Ribnica Bridge (Most na Ribnici).

Highlights from your trip

Kotor

— 4 nights

Bride of the Adriatic Sea

Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Miločer Park and Plavi Horizonti Beach. Visit Our Lady of the Rocks and Savina Monastery for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Kotor: Budva Old Town (in Budva) and Lipa Cave (in Lipa). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Bay of Kotor, explore the galleries of Cats Museum, steep yourself in history at Citadel, and choose your vessel at Miki Travel.
