Montenegro //



Sleepy Cetinje sits just over the mountainous crest from Budva and Kotor, and is well placed for a visit if you’re heading between coast and interior. Cetinje became Montenegro’s capital on independence in 1878, and of the clutch of embassies that were established, many remain visible today as faded relics of the city’s proud past. Though the status of capital has long been passed to Podgorica, many government offices – and, in fact, the presidential seat – remain in Cetinje. The town centre is small enough to walk around in an hour or two, and almost all sights are located on or near Njegoševa, a mostly pedestrianized central thoroughfare.
