Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
Take a break from the city and head to Bay of Kotor and Ploče Beach. There's lots more to do: cast your line with a fishing tour, get a dose of the wild on Magical Montenegro, don't miss a visit to Our Lady of Health, and pause for some serene contemplation at Our Lady of the Rocks.
