The Church of St. Simeon Stolpnika – builted around 1600

What to do:
Local promenade along to the sea is ideal for running, walking … especially in the morning hours.
From Djenovici you can walk till the ferry in Kamenari (approx 8km) or on the opposite direction to the Igalo(16km) (all the time along the seaside).
Hiking: You can hike up the hill over Djenovici. There you can enjoy fantastic panoramic view over the Boka bay and the fresh air. The direction road is marked and you need aprox. half an hour to the first church.
Basketball, football: in the central part of Djenovici there is a basketball court.
Every afternoon people join their forces to keep the sport still alive. No mater do you speak English, Russian, Norwegian or any other language you will be apart of the team, no excuse for losers.
2 full size water polo polls.
Local promenade is begining from Igalo and crossing Djenovici to the Kamenari. There you can take ferry and go to the old town of Kotor.(you need to pay 1 Euro/one direction for crossing the ferry to Lepetane) So it is around 40km of cycling route by the sea. But keep in mind that after 7 in the evening promenade is forbidden for cars with good reason. People with kids are walking. But you can ride the magistral road if you prefer to avoid the crowd.
Ask at the reception of hotel “Milena”
Food and restaurants;
In Djenovici you can choose and find really good restaurants. The most of them have daily menu. The food is mostly organic even tho no one will mention it because that is absolutely normal in Montenegro. But anyway ask the waiter in the restaurant for the local food advices. Fish and meat products are mainly offered.
Vegan restaurants are still a fantasy.
Local restaurants and cafe bars on the promenade have live Mediterranean music in the evening time. Djenovici are mostly for peaceful holiday so don’t expect some crazy fun like in Prcanj.
On some private beaches you can find kids playgrounds “Metal wing seats etc” and since 2016 you have public one next to the basket court in the city centre.
No rules about it but most of the restaurants have no problem with the pets. In 2017 New law came to action who is not allowing the dogs out of the leash on the public spaces.
Beaches are cleaning twice per day, there are no showers on the public beaches, sandy beaches are mostly suitable for the disabled persons.
Canoes, pedal boats … you can rent in a few places in Djenovici. Or here!!!
Groceries, toys, souvenirs and other things you can buy along the promenade . The renting boats with or without skipper can be found via recommendation (everyone knows someone or have a boat), windsurf boards you can rent in a few places, sailboat sailings can be organized as well …
ATM machine is next to the IDEA market.
daily to the Porto Montenegro, islands of Perast, and beach Zanjic. Two language promo posters with more information’s you can find on the very visible places/spots.
Daily to: Monastry Ostrog, Skadar Lake, Trebinje, Dubrovnik ..
Find ice cream stands, buy the tickets 🙂 and get more info.
If you decide to go on your own to Dubrovnik (a bit cheaper ver.). From the bus station in Herceg Novi there is a morning departure to Split (around 9) and return afternoon (about 3 and a half). It is no worth of calling the bus station if you don’t speak Serbian/Montenegrin/Bosnian/Croatian.
Pharmacies, clinics, emergencies :
The nearest pharmacy is in Baosici, clinic in Meljine and Bijela, emergency hospital in the Herceg Novi.
Rent a car:
In Djenovici there are two agencies but greater choice is in Herceg Novi, Zelenika and cheapest is in the capital of Montenegro “the great and only Podgorica” previous name Titograd.
