This morning meet your guide and driver at the hotel lobby for a private tour of Boka Bay and the town of Cetinje. In Boka Bay, the only fiord in Mediterranean, mountains sink in the crystal-clear sea in front of your eyes in the unique harmony of intact nature and cultural heritage, that is today yours to discover.
Your first destination is the old town Kotor, home-town of the famous sailors and traders of Boka Bay. Your guide will take you to the Cathedral of St. Trifun, a monument of Roman culture and one of the most recognizable symbols of the town. Nestled in the intricate network of cobblestone streets and squares, lies the Maritime Museum, the custodian of Boka navy fame. Here, among other things, you can admire portraits of the famous captains, models of old galleys and sail boats and other very valuable exponents of the rich heritage of Kotor.
Then you will continue uphill to the Lovcen Mountain. You will ride along its steep slopes, through the area of powerful contrasts. At the top of Lovcen Mountain, you will find a small village of Njeguši, birth place of the Petrovic dynasty. What awaits you upon arrival at Njeguši is the hospitality of the local people. With traditional Njeguši ham and cheese they will offer you also medovača, the national beverage.
Next, the tour will proceed along the road to Cetinje, the one-time center of Montenegrin Rule. Situated beneath the summit of Lovcen which towers to 590 meters above sea level, Cetinje is a blend of natural beauty and impressive cultural heritage. The Old Royal Capital of Cetinje is today a centre of historical and national identity; the memory and continuity of Montenegrin people. Your guide will take you for a walk through the UNESCO site of Cetinje. You will visit the historical St. Peter’s Monastery, founded between 1701 and 1704 by Prince-Bishop Danilo I on the site of the former court of Ivan Crnojevic. You will also visit the Museum of King Nikola, once a royal residence dominated by a luxurious Art-Nouveau style.
After the tour, you will enjoy a scenic ride back to your hotel.
