Get some historical perspective at Stari Grad Kotor and St. Nikola Church. Get some cultural insight at City Walls and Herceg- Novi Old Town. Get out of town with these interesting Kotor side-trips: Monastery Savina (in Herceg-Novi) and Plavi Horizonti Beach (in Radovici). The adventure continues: get great views at Viewing Point at the Road Kotor-Lovcen, get engrossed in the history at Perast Museum, examine the collection at Maritime Museum, and contemplate the waterfront views at Bay of Kotor.
