Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
Explore hidden gems such as Viewing Point at the Road Kotor-Lovcen and Cats Museum. Change things up with a short trip to Saint Ivan Church in Budva (about 54 minutes away). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Bay of Kotor, step into the grandiose world of Kotor’s Castle Of San Giovanni, steep yourself in history at Stari Grad Kotor, and see the interesting displays at Maritime Museum.
