Montenegro Travel Vaccines and Advice
Thanks to its natural and cultural treasures nestled on the Adriatic coast, Montenegro is both dream and reality. It is a country very spoiled by mother nature with a main focus on the Bouches du Kotor, the only fjord of the Mediterranean. They alone are enough to embody the charm of the whole country thanks to its estuary, its beautiful bays and charming villages rich in architectural heritage. Enjoy an exciting getaway in the city of Kotor surrounded by ramparts. Visit the fortress of St. John and the church perched on the heights of the town. In addition, its coastline adorned with lush vegetation that makes it look like a typically Mediterranean stage set. Do not hesitate to bring bathing suits because its magnificent beaches are a permanent invitation for tanning and idleness.
