Montenegro is a secret that's rapidly being let out of the bag...

In fact, it was #1 on Forbes' list of top travel destinations for 2015.

Kotor was Lonely Planet's #1 city to visit in 2016.

And Montenegro has been listed on too many top travel lists to mention in 2017.

" Kotor is drop-dead gorgeous from every angle. Within the city walls, locals sip strong coffee at pavement cafes and queue for warm bread at the bakers amid a dreamy maze of alleys and plazas; beyond them, the mountain-encircled, fjord-like bay of the same name is one of the most photogenic spots in all of Europe.

Better still, the cruise ships have yet to overwhelm this marvel of the Med - get here before they drop anchor."

- Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2016.

Celebrities love the low-key home of flip-flop luxury.

Families rave about holidays where screens were left forgotten in a corner.

Couples delight in hidden, romantic corners.

And backpackers discover underground destinations and make friends for life.
