MONTENEGRO

 

Montenegro, the pearl of the Mediterranean, unique in many ways is situated in the south of the Adriatic. There is nowhere else that you can find, in such a small place, so much natural wealth, beauty, mild beaches, clear lakes, fast rivers and gorgeous mountains – like you can in the small country of Montenegro.

The cities on the Montenegrin coast will definitely seduce you with their charm, diversity and the Mediterranean air. From Ulcinj (which used to be a pirate town but today represents a tourist haven), Bar (a town rich in historic monuments, with the new, modern city centre, port, marina and hotels), Budva (which represents the tourist metropolis of Montenegro, covering the area from Buljarica, through Petrovac and St. Stefan, all the way to Jaz beach), through Tivat (a beautiful, calm town), Kotor (protected by UNESCO as part of the world cultural heritage), up to Herceg Novi (an irresistible tourist town, rich in greenery, flowers, stairs and beautiful historic structures), each town tells a story of its own. In each one of them you can find restaurants with home-made food and fish specialities, cafés with beautiful terraces and unforgettable views of the sea.

Montenegro's coast is one of the world's regions of greatest natural beauty and most attractive to visitors. It is like an enchanting picture book of creative mastery of nature and man and an inexhaustible treasure of culture and history. This coast stretches from the entrance to the Bay of Kotor ,,Boka Kotorska" to the mouth of the Bojana River, at the border of Montenegro and Albania. Although relatively short and narrow, because of the steep, high mountains in the immediate hinterlands, the Montenegrin coastal region is unique in many respects. First and foremost, there is the magnificent fjord relief of the Boka Kotorska Bay's natural rampart, cutting deeply into the land between the peaks of Mounts Orjen and Lovcen. To the south of the Boka Kotorska there are only two other pronounced bays; Budva Bay under the slopes of Mt. Lovcen, and the Bay of Bar which, together with Spic Cove at the foot of Sutorman Hill makes a wider bay that is well protected from the southeast winds. The scarcity of Archipelagos along the Montenegrin coast is abundantly compensated by numerous elongated and wide fine-sandy beaches, thought to be some of the most beautiful in all the Mediterranean.

           
           

 

CROATIA

 

Croatia is a European country situated along the Adriatic Sea and its hinterland. It stretches from the slopes of the Alps and deep into the Pannonian Valley to the banks of the Danube and Drava rivers.
Like many countries in Western Europe, Croatia was founded on the ruins of the Roman Empire. When they arrived in the territory of present-day Croatia, the Croats were politicaly organized in principalities. In 925, Croatian King Tomislav united the principalities, establishing the first Croatian state. Later, Croatia retained its legal status and autonomy within the framework of the Hungarian empire, and the Habsburg Monarchy.

The Adriatic Sea is the port of the Mediterranean Sea which reaches deepest into the European mainland , and the area belonging to Croatia is characterised by an attractive and diverse coastal landscape , and as many as 1185 islands , islets , reefs and rocks. The coastline of the Croatia and its islands extends to a length of 5.951 kilometres.

The spread of the Adriatic islands is ideal for yachtsmen. They stretch , with breaks here and there , a long most of the coastline , in a string from Rijeka to Dubrovnik. Usually not more than ten nautical miles apart , the islands from numerous channels , both between the islands and the mainland , and between the islands alone. The mainland and the islands abound with bays , coves and ports – large and small – in which mooring or anchorage can be found.
Further down south, Dalmatia, is the apogee of the Mediterranean, bursting with colours, fragrances and shapes, unforgettable in the intensity of the experience of nature. It is a region of long beaches, pine woods and the ancient towns of Zadar, Sibenik, Split and Dubrovnik, that testify to the rich cultural and historical heritage of Croatia. The islands of Hvar, Brac, Solta, Korcula, Vis, Mljet and others, although equally enchanting, are all unique in their character. Dalmatia is also known for its good wines and friendly people.
