Nestled in the heart of Europe and the Mediterranean, Montenegro is a part of the Adriatic coast, in the southwest region of the Balkans.
The country shares borders with Croatia, Serbia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Italy is to the West, across the Adriatic Sea.
Petrovac is located on the coast between Budva and Bar, where the old mountain road from Podgorica reaches the coast. It has a 600 m long sandy beach and it is a popular tourist destination. Petrovac is seen as a somewhat "calmer" resort, in contrast to the lively and developed nearby towns of Budva and Sutomore.
In the 21st James Bond film, Casino Royale, Petrovac was supposedly the location of the eponymous casino but the movie was shot in the Czech Republic instead. In the film, little is seen of the town, only the casino's environs and an outdoor cafe. A part of the movie Brothers Bloom was filmed in Petrovac. The locality has often been used in music videos of regional singers.
