Highlights or not
Durmitor NP: we had to pay €2 per person on the pass. This might be a scam. The park is definity worth a visit. The surroundings are spectacular.
- Ulcinj: Should be a great beach spot. We drove on because it was too crowded.
- Sveti Stefan: Small island with white houses and terra cotta roofs. We liked this part of the Montenegran coast. The village itself cannot be visited unless you are a guest of the hotel on the island.
- Kotor: Unesco village. Beautiful old center.
- Bay of Kotor: Most
southern Fjord in Europe. Beautiful Bay with many nice villages
