The Bay of Kotor, Montenegro

I’ll be honest, I’m a little bit gutted to learn that despite being set here, Casino Royal didn’t film a single scene in Montenegro, but it’s a beautiful spot nonetheless. The old town of Kotor is a slightly larger labyrinth than its Croatian rival. We take a different route to our pension apartment each time. Just outside the city walls on the edge of the fjord there’s a sad but cool abandoned hotel – which I always find creepily intriguing. There’s a few pics online from bloggers that have snuck inside. Most people sunbathe on the concrete slab steps just in front of the old pool but wisely choose to swim in the much clearer fjord water. I’d love to say I climbed up the famous mountainside fortifications (the crumpling European version of the Great Wall of China) but at 1350 steps I just admired it from below.

Where we stayed; Vicky apartment – a quiet stone family pension 30 secs from the bus station (35 euros) on booking.com. Then 2 nights in an amazing old Stari Grad apartment ($35 euros) booked through Vizin travel in the main square.
