Actually, there are two Sv. Ane churches in Kamenari. The one on the first picture is located of the main street after the end of the bus line. Unfortunately it was closed when we visited. Coming back from Lepetane on the ferry I noticed a funeral procession blocking the main road and it was headed to Sv. Ane presumably because that was the closest...more
This church is at the very beginning of the town when coming from Herceg Novi. It's located on a hill from where you have a view over the bay Vertige. Since we walked so much that day already, we didn't check it out.Sv. Nedelje or Holy Sunday church dates back to the 17th century.more
Grilled meats are very popular in Montenegro. My husband, son and Gaga did a fabulous job grilling an assortment of sausages, pork and beefsteaks.
Just like the US, grilling in Montenegro is the man's job. Its funny how some things cross all borders and all cultures!
Favorite Dish: In Montenegro, the first course would be torte (cake) and fruit juice at about 6 pm. That would be followed by the kids playing games or exploring the town, and the adults talking and sipping fruit juice.
Grilling would begin about 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Eating would resume at 10:00 pm. The meats would be accompanied by roasted peppers and fresh tomatoes and a bottle of chilled red wine.
There are frequent buses, operated by "Blueline", connecting the town of Herceg Novi with the ferry port at Kamenari.The ferry port at Kamenari is significant because the ferry that makes the short crossing from there to Lepetane cuts out the need to drive 30km+ around the Bay of Kotor, and so significantly reduces the travel time between Herceg...more
The Lepetane – Kamenari ferry provides a very useful short-cut across the Bay of Kotor.The short ferry crossing (around 5 minutes) removes the need to drive around some 30km+ of road along the northern coast of the Bay of Kotor, thereby significantly reducing the travel time between Herceg Novi and the towns of Kotor, Tivat and Budva for example.We...more
We caught the local bus from just outside the old town of Herceg Novi on Save Kovacevica street. The line runs from Igalo to Kamenari. You have to get on through the back door where you pay the conductor who has his seat there. We paid Euro 1.30 one way. The bus runs about every 30 minutes in the tourist season.In Kamenari the end stop is just a...more
There is a reason why Kamenari will not be a tourist destination anytime soon. The area lacks running water on a regular basis. I don't mean occasional shut-offs. The problem is more severe than that. The town of Kamenari has running water only a couple of hours each day. The water originates in Croatia and the pipelines runs through Croatia and...more
While waiting for the car ferry in Kamenari, you will most likely be approached by young kids who will insist on washing your windshield and being paid for it. They will get quite aggressive if you don't pay up. They don't approach every car, I noticed, but they did approach our car every time we were in line. I think we had the word "Sucker"...more
I asked my daughter what her favorite part of our summer 2004 vacation was. She told me that it was the time spent in Montenegro. She also loved the mountains and the water. When we left Montenegro, she said "I felt as if I had come home." In this picture are (front row, left to right): my husband Greg, Mina, Olga, Anna, my son Danny, my daughter...more
Many of the buildings in Kamenari date back to the 18th century. Homes have been passed down from generation to generation, is one such building. My husband is standing in the backyard patio of the house in this picture. Houses like this one aren't passed down from generation to generation like they are in the United States. In Montenegro, laws...more
