We actually walked along the coastline and entered the Old Town via quite a few steep steps but it was well worth the climb.

Beautiful orthodox monastery just outside of Herceg Novi. They also have their own vinyard and you can taste and buy the products right there. Fine wine. Stunning views over the bay and adriatic sea.

This area with the graveyard, the little church and the big church, are really nice. The lawn is kept nice and green, which gives you a feeling that someone still cares for this place. The church bells are controlled by manpower, which is good, that...More

The Savina Monastery is just off of the coastal highway south of Herceg Novi and entering the grounds feels like you are stepping back 200+ years. Admission is free (there is a small charge to enter their museum) and you will be required to cover...More

This was a nice place for a short visit. It was certainly very peaceful and the views over Herceg Novi are lovely. You walk up into the woods to see the third church, which is nice in the heat of the summer. Worth a visit.
