At the entrance to Boka Bay, the warm and hospitable Old Town of Herceg Novi is the first to welcome visitors entering Montenegro from Croatia. The old town dates back to the 14th century. Founded in 1382 by the Bosnian king Tvrtko, the city was first named Saint Stephan. Herceg Novi is the youngest of all the old coastal cities, but despite that, the turbulent history of varied occupations has created diverse and picturesque architecture in the city.
350 guests are currently staying at the Igalo Institut. On Tuesday, the first group of Dutch tourists will arrive, announcing the beginning of the tourist season.
Kept within a relatively small country, the wild beauty of Montenegro is simply amazing. Exciting nature follows dramatic views from the coast to the mountains, and just 15 minutes of driving through the country can bring you to a completely different environment. This is true almost every 15 minutes you travel.
