  • A beautiful, spectacular site with its mountains that plunge into the Bay to boat, of course, with a good guide. We were fortunate enough to have, mihos and marco showed us the Bay, lady of the rocks, perast, kotor, its beautiful boats covering it, and its small surrounding villages. You can also ride through lepatani, late in the day. The road is very narrow, we must often stop to pass cars on the side, but it's a good show.

  • A huge contrast between the old town and the rest. It is still heavily damaged and abandoned just in front of the Castle. The contrast m surprised. More no sunset on this part of the mouths of Kotor.

  • The best views of the Mediterranean, recommended in boat or boat to appreciate them better. There are many boats for rent and people offering to do private tours, eye: everything is paid in cash here do not accept credit cards.

  • This is surely the most beautiful bay on Mediterranean sea! The sights are beautiful, water is mostly clear, cities are built in this old Mediterranean style, everything looks so perfect. 😊
  • Norwegian like fiord with Mediterranean climate. Beautiful
  • Absolutely loved the cruise into the bay from the Adriatic Sea. And Kotor itself is gorgeous.
  • Enjoyed the stop on our cruise. Very pretty area.
  • Go and enjoy views, high green mountains and clean sea. Wild construction is destroying fun more and more often.
