This romantic destination boats a landscape surprisingly unlike any of its neighbours. Where Croatia is famed for its islands and Albania for its mountain ranges, Montenegro has a series of fjords that would not look out of place in Norway.
It is home to some of the Adriatic’s most picturesque scenery; with mountains towering over blue-green waters along the coast, dramatic canyons and walled medieval towns, perfect for a stroll on those warm summer nights.

With its seven islands, the bay sharing the town's name extends about 30km inland and is considered to be one of the most beautiful along the Adriatic coast. An imposing 5km long wall encloses the town, which extends as far as the Sveti Ivan fortress.
