      Kotor, Montenegro
      From (USD) $298 Per Person (Based on 2)
      Highlights
      • Njegusi: Take in the beautiful bay on a drive up Mount Lovcen to a tiny village nearly 3,000 feet above sea level, where you'll enjoy a snack of local delicacies and wine.
      • Cetinje: Discover the spiritual center of Montenegro as we see the sights and visit the former palace of King Nikola I, the country's last (and perhaps greatest) king.
      • Free time and lunch in Budva: Explore the two sides of Budva – the centuries-old walls, towers, and city gates of Old Town, and the restaurants and clubs of a modern beach resort.
      About This Kotor Tour

      It's a small town nestled in a small valley beneath Mount Lovcen, but once upon a time, Cetinje (pronounced "tse-ti-nye") was the capital of Montenegro: the main city of an independent state on the border of the Ottoman Empire. That strategic location on the physical and cultural boundary between East and West led the major European powers to establish embassies here.

      With that cosmopolitan allure, it's no wonder that Cetinje's architecture reflects the sophistication of European capitals thousands of miles away. And little has changed since Podgorica became the official capital of Montenegro in 1946.

      You'll find mansions where royalty rubbed shoulders with European dignitaries standing side-by-side with single-story cottages. The former parliament building is now part of the National Museum, along with King Nikola's Palace, where you can see the dazzling crown jewels.

      Perhaps it's the regal splendor of Cetinje that led Montenegro's Communist bureaucrats to relocate the capital to drab Podgorica after World War II. But after experiencing it for yourself, you'll wonder why the Montenegrins didn't move it back after the fall of Communism and the dissolution of Yugoslavia eventually led to Montenegro's independence, in 2006. Well, maybe they didn't want to sully its air of refinement with the clash and clamor of modern politics. Instead, the new Constitution designates Cetinje the "Old Royal Capital," preserving a time and place in Europe that can never be duplicated.

       Royal return

      King Nikola I was forced into exile when Serbia absorbed Montenegro after World War I; he died in Paris in 1921. His nephew inherited the crown and was imprisoned by Hitler for refusing to lead a puppet state in WWII. It was only in 2011 that Montenegro once again recognized the monarchy, restoring the family's ceremonial privileges and titles.
