Montenegro stands on the edge between the east and the west. Different civilizations crashing and colliding have left the most beautiful marks between the wrinkled mountainous face of this fascinating country.
The cities on the Montenegrin coast will seduce you with their charm, diversity, and Mediterranean air. From Ulcinj (which used to be a pirate town but today represents a tourist haven), through Budva (which represents the tourist metropolis of Montenegro) and Tivat (a beautiful, calm town with a world-class marina for superyachts), up to Kotor (protected by UNESCO as part of the world cultural heritage). Every town tells a story of its own.
LET’S START WITH THE NIGHTLIFE
Some beaches, like Almara and Nikki beach club, can have a matinee on the docks with DJ if you’re into urban beach spots.
However, if you’re interested in outdoor clubs with dancers and happy hour, here’s where you’ll go: Stroll down the main street along Slovenska beach, and you’ll find the many cafes with live music. All lovers of international and reggaeton music can chill at Jeff bar in the Old Town of Budva. There’s also an indoor Omnia club where all Balkan stars make the show lasts until 5 am. There are only a few nightlife lovers who stayed in Budva without going to the famous Top Hill discotheque, which, according to its interior and equipment, including a capacity of 5000 people, is one of the most beautiful nightclubs in the Balkans. As well as the fact that in 2012, it was declared the best nightclub in the world. However, it’s at the top of a hill near Budva, so it’s a bit of a walk if you’re in the Old Town, but if you get going at 10 or 11, it’s worth it.
If you are a party animal that lets the rhythm change your personality, put on your dance shoes, and come to Maximus nightclub in Kotor. Join some 4,000 people dancing the night away immersed in the pounding disco music. International DJs always light up the atmosphere and hundreds of lights and video screens will make you take in the antiquated ambiance and charming décor while you are tearing up the floor, dancing, and having fun.
