Perast Montenegro

There are many awesome places to visit in Montenegro. Perast is a small fishing village that has quickly become a hot spot for foreign investors and visitors looking to venture beyond over-populated Kotor (more on that later). Be sure to take a short boat ride from the town toward the two man made islands that have made Perast famous; Our Lady of the Rocks and St. George.

2. Kotor

Kotor Montenegro

Located in a bay below the Lovćen mountains lies Kotor, the crowning jewel in Montenegrin tourism as it has quickly become a must visit destination following an influx of cruise ships that dock here over the summer months. The trick to visiting Kotor is to stay in the town itself, take regular day trips, and enjoy the town in peace and quiet once the cruise ships have departed for the day and the city streets are quiet and inviting. Be sure to hike the Kotor Fortress Trail for epic views over the city, a free alternative to the heavily populated Castle of San Giovanni trail that will also set you back eight euros (you can still visit the castle for free, just take the turn off on the Kotor Fortress Trail).
