Coastal region of Montenegro
The coast of Montenegro is located in the west and south-west of the country. The coastline has a total length of 293 km, starting at the west of the country and extends to its most southern point. When you move from west to south-east, the Montenegrin coast begins with the Venetian bay Boka Kotorska. This amazing bay is listed as one of the ten most beautiful bays in the world and is often called Europe's most southern fjord. Coast of Boka Kotorska is like a string of pearls, hidden cities, Herceg Novi, UNESCO-protected town Kotor, one of Europe's best preserved medieval cities, the Old Town (Stari Grad) and the historical naval monuments such as Gospa od Škrpjela - legend says that once upon a time sailors laid stones in Kotor bay every time they returned from a successful journey and so created a small island that emerged from the sea.
Further at the Boka Kotorska bay coastline there are three of the five Montenegrin Rivieras. The Herceg-Novi Riviera, Tivat Riviera and Kotor Riviera.
