While staying in Kotor, Montenegro, during our backpacking through the Balkans journey, we joined North Montenegro day tour organized by our hostel. It was a full day trip visiting most important sites in the North Montenegro.
Our first real stop was Durmitor Natinal Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Durmitor National Park was founded in 1952, and designated as a World Heritage Site in 1980.
Next stop on the tour was Tara river canyon. It is the longest canyon in Montenegro. It is 82 kilometers long and is 1,300 meters at its deepest, making it the deepest river canyon in Europe! The canyon is protected as a part of Durmitor National Park.
Our Last stop was Ostrog Monastery, one of the most revered religious sites in all of the former Yugoslav states. Ostrog Monastery is dedicated to Saint Basil of Ostrog, and houses his relics, which are reported to have healing powers.
As this was a day trip, we arrived back in the Ancient fortified town of Kotor, to continue our backpacking through the Balkans journey next morning to Dubrovnik, another fortified town and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Croatia.
