THE PERFECT PLACE TO START DISCOVERING MONTENEGRO
THE TOP HOT SPOT 2018
In a globalized world in which many wonders have become commercialised and somewhat spoiled by humankind, it is difficult to believe that there are still hidden gems tucked away on the Adriatic coast. If you are looking for a place to spend your time this summer (or any season for that matter), consider Porto Montenegro in Tivat, which has quickly become the world’s most prestigious superyacht marina and yet remains humbly underrated.
Since declaring independence in 2006, Montenegro has enjoyed a development boom, particularly on the tourism front, with greater numbers of visitors and varied investments driving the country’s financial climate. Porto Montenegro was the first investment of its kind, founded in 2010 in the heart of the UNESCO protected Boka Bay.
The state-of-the-art facility houses more than two hundred luxury apartments, restaurants, bars and its own on-site international school. What’s more, at the centre of the village is an amazing shopping complex with, arguably, the most exclusive selection of fashion brands in the Balkans, not forgetting the Five-Star Regent Hotel with over 80 luxury suites.
Porto Montenegro is a perfect base for exploring wider Montenegro, situated nearby three international airports - the capital, Podgorica, Croatian Dubrovnik, where The Game of Thrones was filmed, and of course, Tivat, a mere five-minute drive from the marina. Great things come in small packages, and this is certainly true of Montenegro. The country is so compact that it takes no more than a couple of hours to get to any of the major sights.
For nature-lovers, there is Durmitor National Park, home to the second deepest canyon in the world, and Lake Skadar, the largest freshwater lake on the Balkan Peninsula. Experience the historical sentiment of Montenegro in the old Venetian town of Kotor and the Church of the Lady on the Rocks, located on a tiny little islet off the shore of the small coastal village of Perast. Finish off your day’s adventures with treatments at the Regent Spa, leaving you refreshed for another day of new discoveries.
