The small mountainous nation of Montenegro is close enough to be managed as a short side trip. Its rugged mountain range leaves enough space for a string of seaside towns and villages. The historic town of Kotor is a justifiably popular tourist spot, resembling a more workaday version of Dubrovnik.Tel: +382 77 100 001.
Dubrovnik makes a good base for exploring the southern Dalmatian islands. One of the most visited is the lush green jewel Mljet, much of which is a national park. Hire a bike and circle the network of paths and lakes. The smaller Elaphite islands (Koločep, Lopud and Šipan) are worth a visit too.Tel: +385 20 744 041.
