Kotor

 

Kotor is a fortified city situated in a most secluded tip of Boka Kotorska bay, in the northern part of the Montenegro coast on the Adriatic Sea.

 

Kotor has developed around Stari Grad (local language for “old town”), the city’s old town and best known landmark, which is listed with UNESCO World heritage sites.

 

Kotor Bay is the deepest natural fjord-like bay in the Mediterranean Sea, and the scenery around it (including the steep mountains which come almost straight down to the waters edge) is spectacular.

 

Kotor is also unique because it is the only town on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea to be located by name in historic and strategic maps.

 

Old Kotor was built like a maze for protective purposes and it is very easy to get lost here.

 

In fact, even the locals get lost. Take a wrong turn and you will wind up far from your destination.

 

This can happen even with a town map in hand.

 

However, looking for landmarks, such as the 12th century St. Tryphon Cathedral, will help—and these landmarks are listed on nearly every tourist map.

 

The population of Kotor is multi-ethnic: less than half are Montenegrins, less than a third are Serbians, and a tenth are Croatians.

 

Kotor is still the seat of the Catholic Bishopric of Kotor, which covers the entire area surrounding the gulf of Kotor.

 

Perast is an old town on the Bay of Kotor, famous for its two islets with historical chapels built on them: St. Juraj (St. George) and Gospa od Škrpjela (Our Lady of the Rocks).

 

Gospa od Škrpjela is particularly interesting given that it is the only artificially-built island in the Adriatic, with an area of 3,030 m² — it was built upon a rock (Škrpjel) after two Venetian sailors from Perast found a picture of the Virgin Mary on it in 1452.
