Kotor Bay could be one of the most extremely gorgeous places on Earth. And we’re not joking about it. It only requires an easy car trip from Dubrovnik. Go here and spend a fabulous day sailing the bay, admire the scenery, and enjoy the moment. The view is undoubtedly stunning. Kotor bay and its medieval town look so picture-perfect when viewed from a distance. Go here when it’s not the peak season (summer) because this place can get so busy and crowded.

Adventure Activities

Montenegro is also known to offer some adventure activities which are equally popular in other Balkan countries. 

Rafting – Rafting in the Tara River is one of the most famous things to do in Montenegro when talking about adventure activities. This Canyon is the largest in Europe and it stretches 100 kilometers in length. The best time to do this activity is from April to October.

Kayaking – In addition to rafting, kayaking on this river is becoming increasingly popular. Not only in Tara River but this is also possible in Lake Skadar.

Hiking – Being a mountainous country, it’s not surprising that kayaking is a famous activity here. In fact, Montenegro has a huge number of hiking trails. If you’re not an experienced hiker, you can inquire at the national park visitor centers or local tourist offices to tell you an alternative route or trails depending on your ability. For a challenging one, you can go to Vrmac Ridge that starts at a fort above Kotor.

If you’re in Montenegro, trying out their local cuisine is something you shouldn’t miss. Prosciutto is one of the recognizable food in the country. High-quality cured meat products are mostly produced in Cetinje. These areas are in a perfect geographical position for this kind of production, firstly due to the climate.


Montenegro has a considerable number of wineries in all parts of the southwestern country. For this reason, wine tasting is a highly recommended thing to do. Lots of sunny days, continuous tradition, and good soil are the factors that contribute to the quality of Montenegrin wine. Furthermore, a few indigenous grape varieties have been grown here for centuries and turned into wine.
