Annual Forbes Best Budget Destinations Announced!

Herceg Novi and the Balkan peninsula is highest rated European budget destination for 2019

Forbes have prepared a list of the top 18 budget travel destinations to visit in 2019, and among the great names such as Hawaii, St Helena  Agra, Buenos Aires and Moscow, this year we find, in sixth place, and the highest rated european budget destination, Herceg Novi and the Balkan peninsula.

Herceg Novi is one of the oldest cities on the Adriatic shore, with more than six centuries of rich and colourful history. Several different civilisations had, at some point, control of the city, and we can see that history today in architecture, culture, music and tradition and that mix provides a unique experience for every tourist.

Herceg Novi is at the heart of one the most beautiful bays you can come across, Bay of Kotor, written, song and told about by many of the world’s greatest authors and poets. If, by some wild chance, the bay doesn’t captivate your wonderment, the city itself will for sure. Whatever your key preference when traveling is, you can find it here. Mountains, hiking, sea, sailing and iconic tours of ancient sites and settlements. You have heard of cities offering two, or three experiences in one day, but you have never heard of one offering five.

Warm summers perfect for swimming in the crystal blue Adriatic sea, and mild winters ideal for relaxation and escape from cold temperatures, make this destination the choice whenever you decide to visit.

Herceg Novi is very close to two airports, and is within half hour drive of two other countries and several iconic and old cities like UNESCO protected Kotor, Dubrovnik and Trebinje.

For those who like to see as much as possible, Herceg Novi presents an ideal starting location, from which you can take daily trips to nearby cities and attractions.
