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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Stari Grad Kotor and St. Nikola Church. Step out of the city life by going to Bay of Kotor and Ploce Beach. Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of City Walls, see what you can catch with a fishing tour, take in the pleasant sights at Old Cotor Road, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Blazena Ozana.

To find maps, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Kotor driving holiday planner.
