Herceg Novi was once known as Castelnuovo – meaning “new castle” in Italian. Today it’s known by several other beautiful names like, “The botanical gardens of Montenegro” or “the city of steps and stairways. The city is located at the entrance to the Boka Kotorska Bay, by the foot of the Orjen mountain range. Travelers come here to walk along the streets of the Old Town, see the Spanish Fort and the Orthodox Monastery of Savina, as well as visit the Mediterranean health and visitor center at the Institute Igalo. Mineral springs, therapeutic mud, clean air and various physiotherapeutic treatments are a Montenegrin recipe for rejuvenation.
Besides treatments and sights, there are wonderful opportunities for diving in Herceg Novi – you can explore shipwrecks not far from the shore!
