Hey. I was in Montenegro a few weeks ago. I would definitely recommend Kotor for a couple of days - it is stunning. If you're looking for a couple of days on the beach, Budva is really nice too, but maybe a little over-developed.

Have you been / are you going to Mostar? I loved Mostar and I did a trip with Bata from Hostel Majdas - he does a full day tour of Mostar and the surrounding area, including Kravice Waterfalls which was the highlight of my whole trip.

Have fun,

Phil

Well, this might be a bit late then, but hopefully you're having a good time...

Why fly from Sarajevo to Podgorica? Firstly, there's not much going on in Podgorica- the best thing about Montenegro is the nature, and second, the trip is not particularly far from Sarajevo, and I can imagine a flight would cost quite a bit.

The whole costal route from the Croatian tip to Albania is stunning. Kotor is a beautiful, Unesco heritage site town, quite small but very ambiant. Many of the small towns along the Bay of Kotor are nice, such as Herceg Novi. Lake Skadar along the Albanian border is gorgeous, with beautiful, deep canyons and lush vegetation.

Undoubtetely, one of Europe's most beautiful countries - if not, 'The' most beautiful. Just go with the flow and get to wherever you can.
It's a very small country and you can see a lot of it in just a day. Any longer than that will merely be a bonus.
