Dubrovnik Day Trips to Montenegro

By Viator, October 2014

4.5 166 Reviews | Add your review

Thanks to Dubrovnik's location in the southernmost part of Croatia, day trips (or multi-day trips) to nearby Montenegro are easy - the border is only an hour from Croatia's most popular city. And, with a long history and a lot of natural beauty (and minus the crowds of Croatia), Montenegro makes an ideal escape on the Balkan peninsula.

Just over the Montenegrin border lie a number of coastal towns, such as:

Kotor

Kotor is one of the most popular towns in Montenegro. Located in the Bay of Kotor, the city retains a strong Venetian influence and its walled Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Along with the Old Town, the city walls, and the coastal views, another popular site in Kotor is the Cathedral of Saint Tryphon (or Tripun), which dates back to 1166.

Herceg Novi


Another Montenegrin coastal city, Herceg Novi is located at the entrance of the Bay of Kotor, at the foot of Mount Orjen. The city is one of the youngest settlements on the Adriatic coast, yet offers up plenty of sightseeing opportunities. Some of the most popular include several fortresses (like Forte Mare), churches (like St Michael Archangel Church), and the Old Town.

Herceg Novi is a popular destination for both international and local tourists, with many Montenegrin's escaping to this seaside destination because of its reputation as a spa and health center.

Budva

Further down along the coast, Budva lies roughly 2.5 hours from Dubrovnik. This popular resort city (currently the most popular in Montenegro) is full of young sun-chasers in the summer months, making for crowded pebble beaches and a bustling nightlife scene.

Other than seaside bars and thumping party music, though, Budva also boasts a walled Old Town full of shops and narrow cobbled streets, as well as views of the exclusive island hotel of Sveti Stefan.

Others

Still not enough options? You could also consider adding Risan (the oldest city in the Bay of Kotor) or Cetinje (once the seat of the Montenegrin rulers) to any of the above itineraries.
