This Bank Holiday Monday has been an utter washout so I thought it was time to publish the next post in my Montenegro series and daydream about sunnier times. Not content with having booked seven stops on our trip around the country, we slotted in a few day trips too!
First was Herceg Novi, with a little Perast pit-stop on the way back to Kotor.
We caught a bus from Kotor’s stanica and the ride took around an hour (praise air con). Herceg Novi turned out to be a funny little place, with a pretty old town & a seafront that had quite a tacky, old-fashioned vibe going on…in a sort-of good way.
While we were there we paid a very reasonable 1€ to explore the Kanli Kula fort and enjoy the views over the harbour. The fort is transformed into an outdoor cinema every August – wish we’d known about that in advance!
Perast looked so gorgeous when we drove through it earlier in the day that we had to hop off the bus on the return journey.
It’s a tiny town (we walked from one end to the other in about 15 minutes, including lots of stopping to take photos!) so while I wouldn’t recommend basing yourself here it’s well worth a wander if you’re passing through.
