"Not really a Nikšić page!" Top 5 Page for this destination Niksic by JLBG

Niksic Travel Guide: 45 reviews and 120 photos

On our way from Kruja (Albania) to Mostar (Bosnia i Herzegovina) we arrived in Nikšić at the end of the afternoon.

The city of Nikšić is well known for its beer but the city did not seem to be very interesting to visit and anyhow, that was not our goal as we had a limited time to drive back home. Our concern was to find a hotel for one night. In the hotel tips, I will explain our hotels adventures.

Next morning, we drove in the direction of Dubrovnik and had a look at Most na Moštanici and Slano Jezero.

    Oh wow, Slano Jezero looks like marvellous for paddling! Is that possible there? Haha, yes, I would need a ladder to grab the towels. Very funny and interesting motel story!

    At least you found a room in Niksic, which was more than we managed to do when we tried in the early 70s! No custom posts at all on the roads in or out of the city then. leyle

    Those border crossings (presumably with appropriate paperwork, passports etc) are absurd! I think I'd need several Niksicko Pivos after enduring that!

    12 custom offices and several hours wasted there - it's too much! The bathroom in your hotel is just for such tall men like you and me... Thanks Jean-Louis for sharing!

    There is very good explanation abotut the room in Trebjesa being as it is - Montenegrins are, take of the average, the tallest nation in Europe. By the way, there is a joke about Montenegrian sparrow and Montenegrian worm talking... do you know it?

    Jean, your picture on the introductory page was magnificent! Combining this with your hotel odyssey made for an excellent read.

    Very interesting adventures in Hotel Trebjesa, but that is what makes travelling so much fun! I thought I was doing well to drive a 1000-km per day for 4 days, but I never had to deal with 12 customs checks in one day! Great page J-L!!

    Glad you finally found a hotel for the night, despite all those adventures. Whatever it was that happened there in 1919, I suspect it wasn't anything good.
