What do you know about the country of Montenegro? Photographer Cliff Roles knows a bit more about it now after journeying to Kotor there, where the old town is one of the best preserved medieval towns in the Adriatic and is a double UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Kotor has seen an increase in tourists over the past couple of decades, many arriving (pre-pandemic) by cruise ship. Cliff made his way there via automobile, passing briefly through Bosnia-Herzegovina (for just 12 kilometers). Montenegro is a member of the United Nations and NATO, and is in the process of joining the European Union. (Note: Cliff discovered they don't take Croatian currency there, only euros.)
Next stop: the beautiful and historic city of Dubrovnik, also along the Adriatic.
