This tiny Balkan country rewards you with beautiful national parks, a stunning coastline and quietly picturesque towns. We begin by visiting Budvar’s pretty Venetian old town and the majestic Bay of Kotor. Later, we board a boat to discover the animals and plants that call Lake Skadar National Park home. We take a memorable journey into the mountains to Žabljak, the highest town in the Balkans. And we uncover even more unspoilt natural beauty in Biogradska Gora National Park and Lake.
