Herceg Novi's 'novi', means 'new', but just because it's one of the newer towns on this beautiful bay, it was still founded in the 15th Century, so its Old Town, set on a steep hill, is an impressive mix of sunny squares, winding streets, imposing fortresses and pretty churches. And some of the best places to tsay in Herceg Novi can also be found here.
It's said the old town's architecture is similar to Dubrovnik, which is about 40 minutes away by car, but without the rows of tourists lining up to have their photos taken against it.
Herceg Novi has gradually spread and engulfed a couple of the other smaller bay towns, including Igalo, with its famous mineral springs, and you can see why it's so popular - what with its perfect spot, on the mouth of the bay where the waters seem crystal clear.
As with Kotor, the best places to stay in Herceg Novi get very busy during the summer months. So if you want to be sure of a great hotel, get organised and book early.
