While thousands of Brits head to the Mediterranean country each year, this will be the first time they can fly direct from Bristol. So we've put together a list of things recommended for tourists between relaxing by the pool and meals at pretty restaurants.

One must visit place in Tivat is Porto Montenegro, a waterfront area home to a large marina full of superyachts, restaurants and beautiful boutiques. Take a stroll in the sunshine and take in the pretty coastal views, or stop for a bite to eat at one of the many classy restaurants.

A recent traveller took to TripAdvisor to share their recent experience. They said: "Porto Montenegro is one of the most beautiful and luxurious resorts on the Montenegrin coast. It is pleasantly located in Tivat on the coast."

"It has a marina and countless luxury restaurants and cafes. Hotel Regent will delight you with its comfortable accommodation, friendly staff and varied cuisine. All recommendations, if you are coming to Montenegro, do not allow yourself to not visit this resort! ".

If you love a bit of culture then why not head to the Maritime Heritage Museum to learn about the history and even see some decommissioned submarines. Or if you're a fan of taking a walk in the greenery of a forest then head to the Big City Park to get amongst the greenery.
