Montenegro: Forgotten Hotel Fjord
Once upon a time it was a thriving resort hotel in a prime location on the breathtaking Bay of Kotor.
Nowadays, the Hotel Fjord stands abandoned.
To a visitor, it’s a spooky relic of the time when Montenegro was part of the former Yugoslavia.
But to local residents, it is also a symbol of something else: the unkept promises of a foreign owner to restore the hotel to its former glory.
I first learned of the Hotel Fjord from blogger “Kami and the Rest of the World.”
After reading her post on Alternative Kotor, I put it on the must-do list for my trip to Montenegro.
Would it be hard to find?
Would guards keep me away?
Demand a bribe?
Confiscate my camera?
