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.

There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Bay of Kotor, pause for some serene contemplation at Our Lady of the Rocks, take a tour of Porto Montenegro, and race across the water with a speed boat tour.
