Croatia & Montenegro


Shimmering seas and fortified towns

A land that is home to rugged mountains and a wealth of cultural heritage, what is most immediately striking about Croatia is its coast. The intense blue of the sea sparkles with almost impossible shades of turquoise and cerulean, whilst over a thousand islands lie along the coastline like shards of bottle-green sea glass. Croatia has emerged surprisingly unscathed from its turbulent past, with layers of history and culture sitting pristine in its breathtaking towns; whilst in its villages shingle beaches dazzle, the scent of pine trees fills the air and gardens droop heavy with figs.

The tiny republic of Montenegro is a land of colourful contrasts, natural beauty and centuries of traditions. Ancient stone towns lapped by the sparkling waters of the Adriatic are guarded by the lofty peaks of the dramatic Montenegrin Mountains. Many cultural legacies have been imprinted on this boundary of east and west where Roman mosaics, intriguing monasteries and pretty mosques point to the history of this part of Europe.

Sitting on a rocky promontory thrust into the inconceivably blue ocean, the pale shimmer of limestone and warm glow of terracotta roofs in Dubrovnik’s old town are unforgettable. Known as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’, this magnificent complex never ceases to amaze visitors with its ancient fortifications and treasure of architectural and cultural masterpieces. Wander the cobbled streets of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, backed dramatically by the Dinaric Alps inland, and marvel at this most beautiful of Mediterranean cities.


The lovely Croatian town of Cavtat sits peacefully across the brilliant blue water from Dubrovnik. Fishing boats and shining yachts bob in Cavtat’s tree-lined harbour, where cafés and restaurants are reflected in the still waters. The ancient town emerges from wooded hills, and is home to fascinating architecture from throughout the ages.


Old town Budva in Montenegro has it all: not only heaving with historic monuments, hushed monasteries, cobbled streets and lovely cafés, it is also surrounded by beautiful bays. The long stretches of golden beach are lapped by the clear waters of the Adriatic Sea, and are lively with bars and restaurants.

Montenegro Tour

Montenegro may be tiny, but it is packed with treasures to explore. The stunning Bay of Kotor has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its rich maritime traditions. The surrounding mountains loom over the sparkling bay dramatically, and are dotted with pretty medieval towns such as Perast. With its inordinate amount of churches and crumbling palazzos, Perast’s architecture reveals its Venetian past and hints at its days of grandeur. Sitting pretty in the waters around Perast is Our Lady of the Rocks, a sailors’ shrine where a chapel of the Virgin Mary sits atop a rocky islet. Scenic coastal roads snake around the bay, and lead inland through the Lovcen National Park to Cetinje – the old royal capital of Montenegro. Cetinje has an impressive number of museums, and the Cetinje Monastery houses precious relics.

Skadar Lake

This gloriously verdant lake is the largest on the Balkan Peninsula. Fringed with abundant water lilies, the lake is home to untouched beaches, copious amounts of birdlife and unspoilt fishing villages, which are best viewed on a tranquil boat trip.

Team Comments:

“It was wonderful exploring Dubrovnik for the day knowing we had the delights of Cavtat to look forward to later that evening.”
