Recreation

August is the peak of the holiday season, and the beach is the most popular holiday theme. Montenegro has beaches for every taste, for families with small kids, for teenagers, romantic couples, nudists etc.

All kinds of water activities are in favor among the tourists — sailing, fishing, diving. Beautiful Tara and Morača rivers are best for rafting. Paragliding, horseback riding, quad biking are waiting for adventurous vacationists. There are interesting hiking trails, and many resorts offer paintball, yoga, bungee jumping and tennis. The adventure parks are waiting for the guests, Lovćen at the National Park Lovćen and Gorica in the capital.

You can explore amazing nature and architectural sights with guided tours and excursions. Or reconnoitre the local attractions by yourself. For example, the medieval fortress of St. Mary in Budva (Citadel) built in 1425, is a vivid example of monumental Balkan architecture. It offers magnificent views to the Old Town and the Adriatic, and the entrance fee is only 2.5 euros.
Romantic city of Kotor is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List — a good reason to carefully examine its palaces and churches.
