The adriatic island Sveti Stefan near Budva, Montenegro is named after the Saint Stephan and was converted in the 1950s and 1960s into an island full of hotels. It is a wonderful place connected via a dam to the mainland. On the island you can find a church also named Sveti Stefan and formerly there was also a casino giving the island the name of the adriatic Monaco.
Orginally this place was known for a fishermen’s village from the 15th century. The historic character of the island has been preserved and it has attracted many well known persons over time – including Sophia Loren and Willy Brandt.
