    Dozens of travel journalists and bloggers have written articles about Budva, the capital of Montenegro’s tourism. Some of them find this resort disappointing because of the overcrowded beaches, numerous high-rise buildings, loud music and high prices, but most visitors – in particular young people – are enchanted with Budva’s wonderful beaches, charming old town and […]

    There is an area in Central Montenegro – between Virpazar and Cetinje – with beautiful old villages, spectacular panorama roads and awesome karst landscapes.
