If one were to describe the European country of Montenegro with only two words, those words would certainly be “mountain” and “sea”. Herceg Novi, the northernmost town along Montenegro’s Adriatic coastline, was protected to the north by the Orjen hills, that not even the northern winds can penetrate. Around Budva, a destination well known for its sandy beaches, cultural activities and local nightlife are growing intensely. Kotor, possibly the capital of ancient seafarers living along the Montenegrin coast, was subject to the rule of the Republic of Venice between 1420 and 1797 and the Venetian influence remains to this day in the architectural wonders that abound there. Another great contributor to Montenegro’s fame as a destination of famous seafarers is the town of Perast, where in 1698 a group of 17 young men from Russia where sent by Peter the Great to learn about navigation. Ulcinj was recaptured nearly 130 years ago by Montenegrin forces fighting for independencefrom the Ottomans. In Ulcinj it is possible to admire Velika Plaza (Great Beach),the longest beach of Montenegro (13 km).
