Montenegro and Southwest Adriatic Sea
History, culture, cuisine, and vistas collide beautifully in Montenegro and the southwestern Adriatic Sea. This land is graced with rugged mountains, ancient medieval villages, extraordinary bay ports, and narrow strips of secluded, capacious beaches. Inhabited since antiquity, a visit to the Bay of Kotor, known locally as Boka (the Bay), is highlighted with numerous coastal churches and fortified towns such as Kotor, Risan, Tivat, Perast, Prcanj, and Herceg Novi. The Durmitor National Park, home to bears and wolves, encompasses limestone peaks, glacial lakes, and the 1,300m-deep Tara River Canyon. As travelers venture further on what is becoming known as the Adriatic Riviera they will discover a rich cultural history that is depicted in the sturdy fortresses built by many different powers, elegant minarets of local mosques, ornate Catholic churches, and ostentatious Orthodox monasteries. With some of Europe’s most stunning seaside panoramas the area is favored by a population of convivial and charming people welcoming visitors as cherished guests. Once riddled with conflict, the area has regained its calm, peaceful heritage and now offers sublime old world architecture, fabulous foods, fun filled nightlife, beaches to bask on, and a welcoming population. A visit on your luxury charter yacht will surely leave you wanting more, which is a sign of the perfect charter destination.
