Herceg Novi is a city of flowers and stairs, the most beautiful in Montenegro, a boat trip to the beach Zanjice, swimming and of course the Blue Cave.
We leave for the Bay of Kotor and cross it by ferry. The road to Herceg Novi passes along the seashore and takes no more than one and a half hours.
Herceg Novi is the most beautiful resort town of Montenegro.
The architectural appearance of the city was created by Bosnians, Venetians, Turks, Austrians, and even Spaniards. There are many military fortresses of different periods. And in one of them are summer concerts and performances.
The whole city is located on a slope, you have to walk up the stairs, but from every yard there is a view of the sea. The city is very green and always flourishing, surprisingly, as on the narrow streets and in the narrow courtyards so many plants fit.
In Herceg Novi and its surroundings, if you have time, you can visit several objects. Savina Monastery in an oak grove, a museum, Spanola fortress, the house of the old captain Stunderberg.
Montenegrin rulers studied in Savina monastery, and White Guard immigrants from revolutionary Russia found their last refuge. The city museum offers visitors an archaeological and maritime collection. The captain's house was inherited from the real sea captain, who collected antiquity all his life.
We enter the Herceg Novi Old Town through the clock tower, not forgetting to rub the nose of a little bronze man for good luck. This monument was erected to one city crank or "original", as they are called here.
We descend through the Old Town to the embankment, sit on the boat, sail to the beach Zhanitsa, and then to the Blue Cave.
The beach with the purest water and many restaurants. From here it's only 20 minutes to the Blue Grotto. It is really blue, the sun's rays refract and paint the water and stone walls with turquoise azure. The ship enters the grotto and makes a stop for a 20-30 minute swim.
