Excursion to Cetinje, Budva and Kotor

Today the participants of the summer school went on an excursion by touring car to the old royal capital of Montenegro, Cetinje, where they visited a museum about Montenegrin history and went sightseeing for some embassies and other prominent buildings. On the steep and winding road to Cetinje there were a lot of magnificent views of the mountains and bays.
From inland Cetinje the group went on to the old town of Budva down at the lagune. Historically Budva has not been part of Montenegro for some time, but was occupied consequently by the Venetians, who built a citadel which can still be seen there, and the Austro-Hungarians.
After Budva we visited Kotor with a lot of palazzo's and the castle of St. John on top of the mountain.
