The Vacation of a Lifetime...Everytime!

Kotor Montenegro

Kotor is a coastal town located in Montenegro on the Adriatic Sea.  Our arrival brought us through the southern-most Fjord in Europe exposing beautiful limestone cliffs creating an incredibly picturesque landscape.  Kotor is a one hour drive south of Dubrovnik.  The culture shares a strong affinity to Serbia with influences of this culture being prevalent throughout the city.  We spent our day in the Old Town of Kotor.  This is a walled area at the foot of St. John’s Hill.  Boka Kotorska Bay is listed as one of the most beautiful in the world and rightfully so. The history and architecture of Kotor have influences dating back to the time before Homer 10 BCE.  This was a time when Phoenicians ruled the Mediterranean making Kotor an ancient city as old as the sea trade in the Adriatic.  The old town is a maze of small winding streets with interesting architecture, lots of small cafes, shops, and pedestrian friendly squares where locals and tourists congregate for a coffee, glass or two of wine, and some light local fare.  We experienced all of this walking, like always, until our feet fell off.  There are a number of small hotels with great modern interior décor and accommodations.  This is definitely a country and city that should be on your bucket list.
