Given that we have nearly a week in Dubrovnik, we decide that a day trip is in order. Being just to the south of Croatia, Montenegro is an easy day trip from southern Croatia. Montenegro ranges from high peaks along its borders with Serbia and Albania, a segment of the Karst of the western Balkan Peninsula, to a narrow coastal plain that is only one to four miles (6.4 km) wide. The plain stops abruptly in the north, where Mount Lovćen and Mount Orjen plunge into the inlet of the Bay of Kotor.

Sun and sea worshipers rush to the Riviera and old town of Budva, making it the center of Montenegro’s tourism.

The secondary capital of Montenegro and the official residence of the president.

The Old Town of Kotor lay in the shadows of the fearsome St. John’s Hill and the walls protecting this town are a fortification masterpiece.

Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.
