    Wow, the roofs of Budva Old Town and Sveti Stefan are stunning, and I’m more than happy to hit the beach and sip a cocktail (or two!), I will leave the cliff jumping to the more adventurous types like you 🙂 I had never thought of Montenegro as a destination before but with the gorgeous scenery, history, beaches and opportunity to check out a music festival all in one place, I think I need to add this to my list of places! Thank you for sharing.

      Angie, I’m still so surprised that it’s not on more people’s radars! It’s one of my favourite countries in Europe – so much to see and I can’t wait to go back!

    Budva’s a fun spot in Montenegro. I really wasn’t expecting such a neat Old Town area. Part of the reason I visited Budva was to see Sveti Stefan and that place is just beautiful. Hadn’t heard of Sea Dance before but it looks like something worth remembering for next year. Nice one!

      Thanks David – neat is a great way to describe it. While I am not a fan of the tourist masses, there is somehow always a small alleyway you can duck down to escape them in Budva. I highly recommend the festival too!

    Always looking for new places I hadn’t thought of a a travel destination to visit. The combination of history, natural beauty and culture certainly is a reason to consider a visit.

    What a cool place to visit. Yes on the cocktails on the beach but, like you I would have to go exploring. Visiting historical buildings and walking down those cobblestone streets. From your pictures looks like I could find a few places to hike too!

      Thanks Lisa! Yes there is another monastery even further up the mountain from Praskvica and that looked like an awesome hike.

    Budva and Kotor both look great. I’ve seen shots of Sveti Stefan, now i know where it is! I’ve already added Montenegro to our bucket list, since your last post!

    I had never heard of Budva! It appears to be a wonderful place full of history. I don’t know what fascinates me more Praskvica Monastery, Sveti Stefan, or the beautiful old town. Your photos are amazing! Well done.

    Ok, I am really wanting to go here now! The Sveti Stefan, the chapel, the streets! They all look so cool! Did you end up jumping off the cliff!?! I’m not afraid of heights, but I’m afraid of falling from them and therefore cliff jumping is something I have yet to do!

      Jenn, yes I did. I like cliff jumping as long as I know it’s safe. The guy who jumped before me was still alive so I figured it’s ok!
