The next day was blustery and threatening rain, but we fearlessly set off from Kotor to Cetinje, the "second capital" of Montenegro. When the Turks attacked what was then the Principality of Zeta in the 15th century, the ruler was forced to move his capital to this inaccessible spot. Even today, you can see it's quite a project to get up the mountainside:
The Bay of Kotor:
The bay adjacent to Kotor, called the Budva Riviera because of its sandy beaches and diverse nightlife, although the locals call it the Montenegrin Kuwait, because of its immense number of millionaires, compared to its small population; local landholders have sold out much of the property to Russians, Austrians and Italians.
King Nikola's turn of the century palace in Cetinje, now a museum.
A nearby church.
