Kotor


 

Surrounded by mountains ranging from 1000m to 1700m high, situated at the eastern tip of Kotor Bay, lies the picturesque city of Kotor.

Its city-core is the best preserved, of the cities along the Montenegrin coast, rich in medieval monuments. The walled medieval city-centre, with its winding, narrow little streets, squares and small churches, appears on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Of its religious monuments, the most notable is the Cathedral of Saint Tryphon, dating from the 12th century.

The medieval city-walls extend all the way up to the St. Ivan Fortress, some 260m above sea-level; although the climb up is a bit tiring, the splendid panoramic view obtained over the city and the whole Kotor Bay makes it worthwhile.

Mt. Lovcen, at 1754m, is the highest peak of the range surrounding Kotor; the Lovcen National Park can be reached via an 18km long, steep and winding road.
