After spending some time in the Bay of Kotor, and visiting all the precious little towns hidden in the bay, it is time to focus on another very important centre on the Montenegrin coastline, Budva. Beautiful island of Saint Stefan in Budva As all great stories about a certain place start with a legend, the legend about Budva brings two Greek characters, Cadmus and Harmonia into focus. The legend says that back in the 5th century BC, Cadmus, the founder of the city Thebes in Ancient Greece, after being exiled from his city, arrived with his wife, goddess Harmonia, right here at the Montenegrin [...]

Voyage through the Bay of Kotor

One of the most exquisite gifts that Mother Nature has given to Montenegro, among many beautiful hidden beaches, is the Bay of Kotor. It is the only bay on this side of Mediterranean coast that resembles a Norwegian fjord. However, do not let it confuse you. At the very entrance of the bay, it feels like you are entering into some land Far Far Away, just waiting for some nymphs or sirens to jump out of water and salute you. It definitely resembles a dreamy, remote harbor, guarded by the mountains, where the magic happens. Kotor Bay - Our Lady of the Rock and St. Dordje [...]

Cetinje The Old Royal Capital

By |2019-05-21T10:34:02+00:00May 14th, 2018|Travel|

Cetinje & Montenegrin History When we think about the history of Balkan Peninsula, it is hard to believe that country, small as Montenegro managed to survive between the mighty forces like Ottoman Turks, Austria and Venice that were dominating East Adriatic for centuries. Its mountainous and inaccessible terrain, great warriors led by outstanding rulers were the reason why none of these surrounding forces managed to establish real power and control over this small Slavic nation. Not only that we managed to resist, preserving our religion, culture and identity, but we were also recognized at The Congress of Berlin in 1878 as completely independent Principality! Recognition [...]

One of the greatest engineering projects in Montenegro from the end of 19th century is the road from Kotor to the village of Njegusi.

Only twenty minutes of driving from Kotor, following the coast of Kotor bay there is very picturesque baroque town called Perast. The history of Perast, as the history of entire bay is thousands of years long. But, what defined nowadays Perast is the period from 15th to 18th century.

By |2019-05-21T10:46:22+00:00January 1st, 2015|Travel|

One of the monuments that visitors like the most, during Kotor Private Tour, is St. Luke’s church. It was built in 1195 and it is one of the best preserved Romanesque buildings in the old town.

Also, what makes it special is the fact that for two hundred years it was shared between Orthodox and Catholics. This is why St. Luca's church is symbol of good relations and harmony that still exists in Kotor and entire Montenegro. Miro & Sons [...]
