Key sites/activities in the area
The resort is located in the heart of Boka Bay, with close proximity to the two historic Medieval towns of Perast and Kotor, and the Adriatic Coast, perfect for yacht and speed boat day trips as well as sightseeing. The area of Kotor has been classified as an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, due to its historical and cultural significance.
For the first time in Europe, it was in Montenegro that a car was used to transfer mail (05.07.1903). The Canyon of the River Tara is almost 100 kilometres long and 1.3 kilometre deep canyon. The Tara canyon is the second deepest in the world, just after the famous Colorado river in USA. Because of its pure drinkable water, opulent vegetation and wild life, Tara Canyon is under protection of UNESCO. Also, Montenegro’s rafting tours take place in the Canyon.
In Montenegro, the highest automobile bridge in Europe is built – the Djurdjevic Bridge, 166 meters in height and 366 meters long, connecting the banks of the Tara River.
