Kotor - The Best Place to See in Montenegro

Montenegro, Kotor Guide (B): Kotor - The Best Place to See in Montenegro

Kotor Bay is one of the two most photographed spots in Montenegro (the other is the incredible island of Sveti Stefan). The town of Kotor is unique in the sense that the bay cuts deeply into the land and the sea is surrounded by high mountains emerging directly from the blue waters of the Adriatic. The mountains create an unparalleled scenery that reminds more of Norwegian fjords rather than a Mediterranean region. However, looking at the spectacular architecture, old houses made of stone and multiple palm trees, you will quickly realize you are actually somewhere in the south and not in Scandinavia.

Normally I would always advise to use public transport instead of organised tours. But to visit Kotor, we took a boat tour in the town of Budva, where we stayed. Surprisingly, the tour cost only around 20 EUR and also took us to other beautiful places around: Blue Caves, Zajnice beach and Herceg Novi (click on the links to read my posts about those places).

What's good about the boat tour is that it allows you to sail through the fjord-like entrance to the bay. On the way, you can stop and visit the tiny islets of Gospa od Skrpjela and St. George's island. Otherwise, it would be difficult to see them and they are worth visiting. ......
