Cetinje’s former embassies are quite fascinating, and it’s fun to track them down – basically, look for any oldish building sporting a crest. Nearest the bus station is the grey French embassy, covered with an assortment of lemon and blue tiles.

Further down the road, the crumbling British embassy is now a music academy; turn left for the Turkish embassy, now home to the Faculty of Drama, and the pick of the bunch – the gorgeous, peach-coloured Russian embassy.
