Explore Two Countries for the Price of One
- by Ari Travels
If you’re going all the way out to Europe, you might as well try to see more than just one place because each destination is unique. During your time in Dubrovnik, Croatia, you should take advantage of visiting another country, and this country is called Montenegro.
If you haven’t heard of Montenegro, it’s a small country in the Balkans. Montenegro is so tiny that only 600,000 people live here! The great thing about this country is it has yet to become a popular place to visit, which makes for fewer crowds and more time to soak in all its beauty fully. Montenegro is home to cute villages, bays, and mountains, just to name a few. Montenegro is a great place to visit for a chill day away from the city and to explore a new, unique, untouched place.
How to Travel to Montenegro on a Budget
The easiest way to enjoy Montenegro is to do a day trip from Dubrovnik. This affordable tour only costs $55, with transportation and border crossing included.
Note: If you’re renting a car in the European Union (EU), you cannot drive to Montenegro yourself because it’s not considered a part of the EU. It’s impossible to cross the borders unless you take a regulated bus, or train, or go on a tour.
From Dubrovnik with your tour, it only takes just under two hours to reach Kotor, the main town of Montenegro. I loved this tour because we got a brief history lesson of the old town and then had free time to explore and grab lunch on our own. Make sure to get gelato here from one of the local stands. Plan to visit the park next to the town and admire all the architecture of the churches and buildings.
After Kotor, we got back on our bus, and they took us to the famous Lady on the Rock, a floating church on an island in one of the bays. Here we did a boat ride to the island, went to a museum, and got the opportunity to swim in the turquoise waters.
If my photos have not convinced you to visit Montenegro yet, this is still your sign to book a day trip from Dubrovnik and explore the country for yourself. You won’t regret it!
