Heading to Ulcinj, we stayed in Kotor only for the morning coffee. We spent there only about an hour wandering about narrow streets in the Old Town.
In 1979 Kotor has been placed on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
This place is not only beautiful, but it also has its specific atmosphere. The day before we visited Dubrovnik in Croatia. In my opinion, even though Dubrovnik is a great attraction, the less crowded and worse renovated Kotor has something special in it, that mad us relaxed and happy. Or maybe it’s simply this morning laziness of waking up city and smell of fresh coffee which puts us in this mood.

Ada Bojana, Montenegro
Ada Bojana is an island located on Montenegro’s border with Albania. When we got there, a sign over the road “Nudistički centar” (Nudists center) was a big surprise. Usually at this point I put a photograph referring to the subject. Well, this time I won’t do that. Ubiquity of nudity can be observed not only on the beach but also at camping, terraces of houses, on the streets and in shops. I would feel uncomfortable taking pictures there.
Small part of beach at the western end of the island, where the river Bojana flows into the Adriatic Sea, is not for nudist.
Serbia, The Royal Mausoleum Oplenac
On the way back home from our Balkans’ holiday we have visited Topola in Serbia to discover the beautiful church of St. George – the Mausoleum of Karadjordjevic (Karađorđević) dynasty located on the Oplenac hill.
Perast – small town at the Bay of Boka Kotorska in Montenegro. I was mesmerised by the beauty of this place. In fact, the whole Perast is an Old Town. It has beautiful wharf so everybody is walking there, on the other hand, narrow streets and numerous stairs between houses are also worth to see.

The Balkans journey
In 2013 we went to three weeks journey around the Balkans. No turists and wonderful views – that’s what we usually are looking for during our journeys. In Bosnia and Herzegovina, near to Croatian Plitvice, only one day trip from Poland we found very quiet place: Una National Park.
We have stayed at Villa Buk guesthouse and for two days we were sightseeing. What is worth seeing? That’s what I want to tell you in the next part.
