One of the most popular day trips from Dubrovnik is a visit to the neighbouring country of Montenegro. So close and yet so far! Yes it's true that it was Montenegrins who attacked Dubrovnik in 1991 but, hey, that was a long time ago. Let bygones be bygones. Now there are regular relations between the two destinations with the goal of making it easier for tourists to visit both.

Getting to Montenegro

From Dubrovnik there are three ways to visit Montenegro:

Practicalities

Money

Montenegro is cheaper than Dubrovnik, especially when it comes to restaurants. Note that Montenegro has adopted the euro as the official currency. Croatian Kuna is widely accepted but it's more economical to pay with the euro. ATMs are plentiful but credit cards are not widely accepted except to pay for accommodation.

Border Formalities

If you did not need a visa to enter Croatia you do not need one to enter Montenegro. Just show your passport at the border crossing. If you drive, you must have a green card which will be provided when you rent a car.

For some of the most dramatically beautiful scenery on the Adriatic coast, head to Kotor. The walled town of Kotor rivals Dubrovnik and it's wedged between Mt Sv Ivan and a gorgeous bay. The drive from Dubrovnik affords unforgettable views of the bay and it's a delight to spend the day exploring the streets and squares of the Old Town. Herceg Novi is also worth a stop, especially if you'd like to take a swim as there are a number of pebble beaches and concrete swimming terraces. Least interesting, in my view, is Budva which lies another hour or so past Kotor. A victim of rampant over-development, Budva beachside strip is perpetually crowded and packed with commerce. The walled old town has been carefully restored and would be interesting unless you've just come from Dubrovnik.
