Kotor is located in the very center of one of the most beautiful bays in the world. This is an interesting and multifaceted ancient city with unique architecture and lifestyle which harmoniously combines medieval and modern buildings, tourists and locals.
The highlight of Kotor is the Old Town, which survives to this day almost untouched. From April to November, cruise ships arrive here from all over Europe, and the streets of the city get filled with hundreds of tourists.
The Old Town of Kotor is fenced from the civilized world by massive stone walls, inside which the spirit of the Middle Ages still reigns. Squatty stone houses with tiled roofs, cobbled streets, and ancient churches and palaces are fascinating. And only noisy souvenir vendors and numerous signs of local cafes and restaurants remind of modern times. In the evening, the atmosphere of the Old Town gets incredibly magical, and charming sounds of saxophone come from cozy restaurants.
