The beautiful Bay of Kotor (BokaKotorska) penetrates for about 30 km in the inland. It is often called Europe’s most southernmost fjord. It certainly looks like one, with towering peaks surrounding a rocky coastline dotted with pretty waterside towns.

The Natural and Cultural-Historical Region of Kotor has been a World Heritage Site since 1979.

And there is no lack of the Baroque touch, thanks to the old Venetian fortress and the tower of the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary from the seventeenth century. In the village of Perast, you find for the oldest church of Sveti Nicola (Saint Nicholas).
Of all the sights along the Adriatic shoreline, Sveti Stefan is the most extraordinary. A fortified island village connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway, its photogenic jumble of 15th-century stone villas overlooks an impeccable pink-sand beach and tempting turquoise waters. The island was nationalised in the 1950s and is now part of the luxurious Aman resort, meaning it’s off-limits to all but paying guests. However, Sveti Stefan has unsurprisingly been named as Montenegro’s most photographed site. Sveti Stefan includes part of the mainland, where the Villa Miločer part of the resort is located. Although part of the Adriatic playground for the rich and famous, it still retains its sense of exclusivity and old world glamour combined with spectacular inland scenery, charming fishing villages and coastlines indented with mountains and coves. The island has a 2 kilometres coast line and is situated just 3.7 mi southeast of Budva.
