Bride of the Adriatic Sea

Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.

There's much more to do: explore the activities along Bay of Kotor, get to know the fascinating history of Kotor City Walls & Fortress, explore the galleries of Namfleg, and get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour.
