Here one may find fantastic beaches along the Montenegrin Riviera. Budva is a stunning destination with coastlines composed of high quality sand spread over miles of jagged coastline.

Moving inland from the coast, one finds incredible national parks and some captivating lakes, along with historic sites that have enchanted visitors for years.
