We circled around the stunning Kotor Bay and spent the night somewhere not far from Herzegovina, by the shores of the bay, in a guest house which cost us €10 per person without any breakfast or television, but with a view that was worth every penny.
We stopped at Kolašin in a guest house which cost us €30 (including breakfast) for a large and beautiful room overlooking the brown river. A large sign with the word “Rooms” on an orange house led us from the center of town to the guest house. The owner spoke French so I was able to communicate with him.
We thought about sleeping in Šavnik and from there climbing to the canyon, but we couldn’t find a place to stay and we ended up in Nikšić, where we spent the night in the excellent “Vukov Most Hotel”, paying €80 a couple for a room and a modest breakfast.
We moved on to Virpazar and headed to the hotel “13 of July”, overlooking Skadar Lake. We were deeply disappointed when we noticed the hotel was closed for renovations. Out of nowhere came a woman who informed us she that she was renting a guest house nearby. We followed her and after a five minute walk on the road right by the hotel we discovered that indeed, there is a Sobe overlooking the lake for €25 a night, breakfast not included.
10 km before Šibenik we got off the main road to Zalisnucka across from house number A138, we rented an apartment with a yard overlooking a picturesque bay and sea. The entire garden was full of roses and amaryllis blooming in red and pink.
We continued in the direction of Postojna cave and settled inside a tiny apartment which cost us €40 including breakfast. The owner of the place recommended us a restaurant in the main street of Postojna. The sign said “Pizza”, but they served us all kinds of dishes. We chose a mix of meats which was good and not too expensive.
In Tolmin we found the apartment of Teodora Blazetik, which everyone calls Dora. It’s located on 36 Brunov Drevoired Street, and costs 16€ a night per person, breakfast not included. Dora greeted us with homemade cherry filled cookies, and put at our disposal coffee and tea, which we drank in the garden. Dora was a lovely warmhearted woman.
