Found nestled at the end of the Bay of Kotor, from which the town is named, is a ‘bay’ or ‘fjord’ as it is commonly called, which opens into the Adriatic Sea. However, it’s actually a ria – a submerged river canyon which has been settled since 229 BC.

First of all, it’s one of the most jaw-dropping destinations in the world! At least in my book! In recent years, Kotor has seen an increase in tourism as cruise ships have docked here to allow travelers to explore its beautiful Old Town and the fortress perched just above it.
