One Day Tour
Kotor is a city and municipality on the coast of Boka Bay in Montenegro. Situated in one of the most beautiful bays, this town of merchants and sailors has a lot to show. Kotor Bay (Boka Kotorska) is one of the deepest and longest in the Adriatic Sea and is often called the southernmost fiord of Europe. The old Mediterranean archipelago, surrounded by impressive city walls, is very well preserved and included in the UNESCO list of World Cultural and Natural Heritage.
Between 1420-1797 Kotor was surrounded by Venice and Venetian influence stands out in urban architecture. Throughout the city, there are buildings intertwined with streets and squares. On one of them, there is a Cathedral of Saint Tryphon (XII century) – the recognizable symbol of the city – dedicated to the patron of the town.
The most impressive attraction is the city walls surrounding the city, which are about 5 km long, high to 20, and wide to 10 meters. Climbing along the walls, you will arrive at the San Giovanni fortress at about 280m above sea level from which you can see the enchanting panorama. Various events, carnivals, and festivals organized each year give this city extra charm. Kotor was nominated for the title of the best European destination in 2019, following the results achieved in 2018 at a competition conducted by European Best Destinations – EBD.
The old town of Kotor also has a great number of nicely arranged restaurants and hotels where you can taste traditional specialties as well as varied Mediterranean food.
