Herceg Novi

Often referred to as "the City of 100,001 Steps" for its numerous flights of stairs,
Herceg Novi is also known as ‘the City of the Sun’, thanks to the high number of
sunny days all year round.

Located at the entrance to the Bay of Kotor, Herceg Novi has a mild Mediterranean climate, with dry and warm summers and mild winters. The town is connected to the Adriatic Highway, and is accessible by air through the Tivat (Montenegro) and Dubrovnik (Croatia) international airports. Rich in greenery throughout the year, Herceg Novi is like a botanical garden with numerous species of tropical flowers, most notably the yellow and green mimosas with their subtle fragrance. Herceg Novi’s old town lies on a fairly steep hill that leads all the way down to the sea and the marina, with many sets of small stairways, different piazzas, and fortresses connecting the two.

About Herceg Novi

The city has some great pebble and many concrete beaches, as well as a 3-mile-long seaside promenade along these beaches. Herceg Novi’s water is some of the clearest in the bay, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. It’s also a great place for kayaking – you can head across the bay to the village of Rose, visit Mamula island or go to Dobrec beach on the Lustica Peninsula. At the western end of the seaside promenade is a small spa town of Igalo, renowned for the healing properties of its muddy, mildly radioactive sand. A health and medical centre complex offers mud therapy combined with other treatments that are beneficial for rheumatic complaints, skin disorders, and gynecological problems.
