Kotor

Kotor
Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
Get in touch with nature at Bay of Kotor and Ploce Beach. Stari Grad Kotor and City Walls will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Herceg Novi Old Town (in Herceg-Novi), Blue Grotto (in Lustica) and Plavi Horizonti Beach (in Radovici). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at R.K.C. Gospa od Škrpjela, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Nikola Church, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, and explore the ancient world of St. Tryphon Cathedral.

To find more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Kotor road trip planner.
