Active holidays in Herceg Novi:
nature, culture and art

The leafy outskirts of Herceg Novi and the Lustica Peninsula offer nature-loving vacationers the ideal opportunity for more active enjoyment during their stay. Walking, cycling and hiking trails lead visitors to spectacular viewpoints that offer enchanting views of the landscape and entrance to the world-famous Bay of Kotor.

Visits to the impressive local fortresses and towers, strolls through the squares and promenades, and exploration through the the winding narrow streets and staircases are a must.

And every street and alley? A story unto itself! Told by the pen and painted by the brush of the great artists who walked them – nobel laureate Ivo Andrić, the great travel writer Zuko Džumhur, and the painters Luka Berberović, Petar Lubarda and Vojo Stanić.

Thanks to the masterful works of these brilliant minds, Herceg Novi is overflowing with artistic tradition.

And also the traditions of music, stage, entertainment and culture. Programs that, during the summer months, transform the city into a stage under the sky.

Guests are met by warm, welcoming locals who work hard to provide visitors with the most pleasant stay possible.
