    Perast, Montenegro

    from Andy Trincia (Romania 2002–04)

    PERAST, WHICH IS officially now in Serbia & Montengro, is a lovely town on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, not far from (approx 50km) more heavily touristed Dubrovnik, Croatia. Stunning scenery, cheap prices. Accessible via road or boat (e.g. Herceg Novi). Lovely church, town center, walkway along waterfront, Baroque architecture. Two stunning islands out in the distance, with Catholic churches (one has a museum). Try the hip “Otok Bronza,” a small cafe on the waterfront, complete with brick-cellar ambiance, grapes growing outside, and nice art on the inside. I only had a beer but I heard the food was exceptional.
         The whole area is worth a visit.
