Chloë in Montenegro

We stayed in Montenegro for 6 days. Our apartment had a beautiful view of the mountains and the Bay of Kotor. The bay of Kotor is one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. My two favorite places in Montenegro were Lovcèn National Park and Sveti Stefan.

Lovcèn National Park is one of the most popular national parks in Montenegro. First you need to drive to the mountain and then you need to hike up 460 extra steps to get to the top. On the drive up to the mountain there are 25 hairpin turns so I got very nauseous. Once you are at the top of the mountain, you can see 80% of all of Montenegro. If you go on a cloudy day, all you can see is white!  Sometimes you can see your shadows in the clouds!!!

Once you are at the top of the mountain it is 10 degrees cooler than at the bottom. Lovcèn is 1,749m high.

On the last day in Montenegro we spent the day swimming in Sventi Stefan. The water in the sea was sooo salty. There was enough salt to make you float!! I had so much fun in the water!!! The water was not too cold and not too hot. It was mostly refreshing.

Since most of the beaches in Montenegro are rocky, after swimming you can lay on the warm rocks and not only warm up buy dry off too (the rocks were surprisingly comfortable even if you lay on your stomach).

The 6 days we spent in Montenegro were very exciting. At Lovcèn National Park I was so amazed that you could see your shadow in the clouds. If you look very closely at your shadow you could see a rainbow halo around your head!!!
