Herceg - Novi, cultural and historical center

And the road takes me further to one of the most beautiful cities in Montenegro: Herceg-Novi.

At the foot of Mount Orjen, and at the very entrance to Boka Kotorska, is this fantastic town with many fortresses, cafés, restaurants and many other interesting things.

The trademark of the city is the numerous stairs and the famous mimosas, and it is also known for the large number of sunny days, which is why it is also called the city of the Sun.

The town was founded by Tvrtko I Kotromanić in 1382 under the name Sveti Stefan.

The beauty of Herceg Novi cannot be described in words, you must visit it and walk through these wonderful streets.

I am at Kanli Tower, a fortress from the 16th century.

One of the most beautiful stages on the Adriatic Sea was built here, with more than 1000 seats.

In addition to this one, there are several other fortresses in Herceg Novi: Španjola, Sat Kula, Kula Sv. Jeromina, Forte Mare and Citadel.

I go down to the beach, through narrow streets and countless stairs, which are the symbol of the city.

Small squares, with open-air cafés and galleries are attractive to tourists, and they irresistibly remind me of Italian cities.

The famous Clock Tower was built in 1667 by order of Sultan Mahmud, and today it is one of the symbols of the city.

At the end of winter, the whole city is filled with the smell of mimosa, so the big Mimosa Days festival is held, and during the summer season, there are many such festivals, so that tourists and visitors can enjoy interesting programs.

I continue towards the beach.

Many churches, fortresses, towers, new and old villas attract tourists from all over the world.

On the square above the beach, there is a monument to Stefan Prvo Kotromanić, the founder of the city of Herceg Novi.

The once powerful fortress of Forte Mare has been turned into a cinema and discotheque, and the view of the city is simply unforgettable.

The beaches are quite full, it is a real pleasure to swim in the waters of Boka Kotorska.

Herceg Novi is one of the most beautiful cities in Montenegro.

There is also an outdoor swimming pool on the promenade, where a water polo tournament is currently being held.

Walking through these beautiful streets brings me to the Church of St. Michael the Archangel, which has almost celebrated its one hundred and ten years of existence.

There used to be a much older church here, which was demolished, so the locals got together and built a new and beautiful building.

There is also a monument to Aleksa Šantić nearby.

All that remains for me is to greet you from Herceg Novi and to tell you that you must visit this wonderful city, which will delight you with its beauty.

And someone else wanted to greet you from Herceg Novi.

See you soon
