Description

Herceg Novi is one of the most beutiful cities at the Montenegro Coast. It is situated at the very entrance of Boka Kotorska bay. Herceg Novi was founded 1382 and is formelly known as Castel Nuovo. There is plenty to explore: the well preserved Fortress Spanjola stands on a hill behind the old fortified town overlooking the bay, and nearby are the ruins of Kanli Kula ( the Bloody Tower ) which served as both fortress and prison.

Traditionally the local seaman brougth exotic plants from distant countries, so nowdays the town has many gardens with subtropical plants.
