Stoliv

Yet again, visitors to the Bay of Kotor will find themselves in a divided city. Stoliv is made up of two parts, the lower and the upper, and both are worth exploring. If you’re drawn to the beach, then be sure to spend time in Donji Stoliv. This is the coastal section of town, and it features a collection of traditional stone houses just steps from the water. For an unusual but unforgettable accommodation option, some of these local homes offer camping right in their yards, letting you sleep under a canopy and listen to the sounds of the tides changing as you fall asleep in the fresh air at night.

Stoliv

A short hike of just 30 minutes will take you from the coastal part of Stoliv to the upper part. In Gornji Stoliv, homes are nestled among olive and fig trees. The highlight of this section of Stoliv is the Crkva Sv Ilije, a 15th century church that honors Elijah. Tourists are few and far between here, particularly outside of the summer months, so it can be a fantastic way to experience the real Montenegro away from the crowds.
