Hi,

I will be spending 2 or 3 weeks in Montenegro in late August.
Does anyone have any tips on where to go and what to do etc.

I am interested in spending some time at beachy locations.

Thanks,
Gloss

Hey Gloss

We went to Montenegro last summer in August and had the best time!!! First we stayed a few days in Kotor - an absolutly gorgeous little venitian town, complete with middleage castle and everything. They have beaches there, but be aware that they are not sand beaches. It is really easy to find affordable accomdation. As soon as you get of the bus, people will grab your sleeve and ask if you want to stay with them. It costs about 10 Euro per person per night. There are also plenty of pricy, but lovely hotels in the city center. If you want more turisty places, try Bar or Budvar. We only went through these cities as we try to avoid other turist, but if you want to party and talk to other travellers, these are the places for you.

From Kotor you can take the bus to Podgorica (the capital) which I would not recomend, but from there, you can get a bus to Durmitor (the bus may say Zabljak, the main town in the area). Durmitor is the largest national park in the area, and it has some absolutly fantastic sights if you like hiking in the mountains. Here, too, accomodation will find you as soon as you get of the bus and prices are about the same as in Kotor or maybe a little less.

The Westen Balkans are a great place to travel, and if you are looking for adventure, go south to Albania. It is like going to a different world! From Tirana (the capital) you can catch a bus to Ohrid in Macedonia. This, in sharp contest with Kotor, was our absolut favorit place when we traveled around the region last summer. You can swim in the lake, walk around the ancient city center with the castle, the beautiful churches and the roman amphi theater. At night you can party in the clubs. And maybe you can also find time to the thing we missed, when we were there: go to the village Vevcani just north of Ohrid, which has declared itself independent! I hope you can use my pointers. If you need more info, I can recomend Lonely Planet's Western Balkans. We wore ours down to the bone!

Best,
