Cheap flights to Tivat
The Montenegrin town of Tivat has been tantalising travellers for many years. The town, which is home to 14,000 people, is located on the Bay of Kotor, which opens up to the Adriatic Sea. Its marine location is popular with sailors and the opening of the Porto Montenegro, a state of the art marina for luxury yachts attracted more.
Travellers to the town are not far from sandy beaches on which to relax and soak up the sun. If you prefer to escape the crowds, you could head to one of the several islands, which are in easy reach of the town. If you prefer to stay in the town, there are plenty of cafes and bars in which to while away the time. Perhaps have a drink of the local Montenegrin wine. Travellers who are more sport-orientated might want to time their visit to coincide with the town's triathlon. Fashion followers will want to come to see the Modus Moda Vivenda fashion festival.
Although the town was inhabited in antiquity, it was officially founded in the 14th century. The town really grew when the Austrian Empire, of which Montenegro was a part, built a port for its fleet there. Today it attracts a more peaceful boat as many yachts anchor in Tivat to enjoy the warm sunshine and delicious Montenegrin food.
