Montenegro is Awesome

On a tour through the Balkans with Intrepid Travel, we traveled through Montenegro. Sveti Stefan must be on a top 10 coolest islands list, so visit it if you can.

Kotor is also an awesome city – tucked away in the Gulf of Kotor and feels very similar to Dubrovnik, Croatia. Kotor is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so you know it’s good.

FYI for the James Bond fans: much of the movie Casino Royale is set in Montenegro, it wasn’t actually filmed there 😉

From what I recall in the Kotor old city: it’s full of restaurants, pubs, ice cream shops, cafes and cats.

The old fort ruins are a good 30 minute hike up above/behind Kotor and offer the best view around. It’s a little steep in some places, but wear decent shoes and you’ll be fine.
