  • Whilst I was unable to enter the building due to covid-19. The information from the tour guide was pretty detailed. A 2nd trip for me and hopefully next time it'll be open to tourism.  more »
  • Tucked in the narrow streets of Kotor, we really loved the design and the banner hanging from it. Facing the other quaint church, its a beautiful little square.  more »

  • Kotor Old Town with it's churches and narrow streets is simply breathtaking. In my humble opinion - much better than Dubrovnik 😉
