Undiscovered Montenegro and its Mediterranean Fjord
This morning, cross into the unspoiled and rarely travelled country of Montenegro. Located less than one hour from Dubrovnik, Montenegro offers an unforgettable mixture of stunning natural and unspoiled historical treasures and Mediterranean culture largely untouched by outside influences. This is a land where mountains descend directly into the sea creating a surreal landscape unlike anywhere else in the world. Gaze upon the only temperate – or Mediterranean – “fjord” in the world. Once known as Europe’s southernmost fjord, it is in fact a “ria.” Your guide will introduce you to the deep history of the region and will share stories of the many cultures and empires that have left their marks here. Enjoy the views around Kotor Bay, passing quaint villages along the way, to medieval Kotor, an ancient walled city where history comes alive. Soak up the typical Mediterranean lifestyle before returning to Dubrovnik. This option MUST be selected at the time of booking and reserved no later than 45 days prior to tour departure date.

A group of refugees from Epidaurum (today’s Cavtat) founded Dubrovnik in the first half of the 7th century. The city was under the protection of the Byzantine Empire through the 12th century. From 1205-1358, Dubrovnik fell under the sovereignty of Venice. Dubrovnik ruled itself as a free province between the 14th century and 1808 as the Republic of Dubrovnik. It flourished in the 15th and 16th centuries and became the chief shipping rival to Venice. A devastating earthquake in 1667 killed over 5,000 citizens and marked the beginning of the decline for the Republic. The Republic officially met its demise in 1808 after Napoleon’s armies conquered it and Marshal Marmont abolished the Republic and integrated it into the Illyrian provinces. Since 1808, Dubrovnik has fallen under attack, been occupied and annexed several times, most recently as part of the second, Yugoslavia (1945- 1991); however, it continues to be one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities on the entire Adriatic. With its medieval walls that surround the old city, and the ancient buildings contained within, Dubrovnik is a UNESCO World Heritage site unlike any other.
