Having read the previous reviews and the concern about the road / dirt track I would concur with all of that but the infamous 25 hair pin bend 'serpentine' road is doable if you drive slowly and carefully. We hired a car, got up early...More

The last reviewer explained the situation very well. The hairpin road is very doable and the bends are wide enough for buses to pass any car - and they do! However, once you turn into the entrance of the National Park itself, things deteriorate quickly....More

We travelled from the Cetinje end of the road having visited the mausoleum in Lovcen National Park. Not sure that previous reviews have stressed enough the impact of the roadworks on quite a long stretch of the road - 10km or so, we would guess....More

The road is pretty hairy, although not as bad as some in the north of the country. However, the views are spectacular. Be sure to go on a clear day!!

We took a tour bus from our cruise ship and stopped here along the way. It's difficult to imagine many views much better than this one. Couldn't take enough photos.

We drove the serpentine road in hire car and it was a fantastic day out. Stopped at ‘hairpin’ 25 for a view that is beyond postcard. A little scary when passing other cars and buses coming the other way, but nothing you can’t handle. Worth...More

I'm not sure how many serpentine bends we navigated before we stopped at this lookout. Basically, its a section where the road is wider and there is room for the buses and other vehicles to stop awhile. The climate was rather bracing on this chilly...More

We wee coming from inland and I have to say that the view as we came around the bend and first saw Kotor was the most impressive I have ever seen. 3000 feet vertical drop. Worth a trip up to see it.

Well, my husband is stubborn! So when we had to turn left onto a non-existnaat road, he went across what looked like a construction site and then we found the small and narrow road leading to the top! We were very pleased that the 2...More

We used the taxi to return from a nearby restaurant and discussed it with the driver, I think the name of the firm was in my review. It was easy and we couldn’t believe how cheap it was !
