Tivat airport is the largest airport in Montenegro, although it is not served well by international flights. Austrian Airlines connects Montenegro with Vienna, and you may be able to find flights out of London. Alternatively you can fly to Dubronvik or Zadar in Croatia and then travel by land or ferry to Tivat.
Coastal Montenegro has a Mediterranean climate with mild, rainy winters and clear, hot summers. The beach season lasts from April to October.
This small coastal town is presumed to have been founded before 168 BC during the Illyrian period. Since then, it has been ruled by the Romans, Byzantines, Serbs, Venetians, Turks and Austrians. Tivat was occupied by Nazi troops between 1941 and 1944.
Renaissance Summer House, displaying Renaissance and Gothic architecture, is one of Tivat's most popular tourist sights. A number of nearby islands, including Gornja Lastva (Flowers Island), Sv. Nikola, and Stradioti offer interesting day trips.
Tivat, with its natural marina, relaxed air and beautiful beaches, is a center for nautical tourism. Boating and yachting are available for ocean lovers, while the town's botanical garden and Big Park offer a way to enjoy coastal Montenegro's flora.
