Coastal Montenegro

A short trip to Montenegro's (mainly) coastal sites in May.

I stayed at Becici near Budva also visited Cetinje (the old Royal Capital), Lake Skadar which borders Albania and Kotor with it's impressive bay (just a drowned river valley, not a true fjord).

Three quarters of Montenegro is mountainous. Strangely the local name means "Black Forest", not as per the English/Italian version of "Black Mountain".

I also took a day trip to Albania(separate gallery enclosed).
