Kotor

Historical Notes

It is located in a secluded part of the Gulf of Kotor. The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by fortifications built during the Venetian period. It is located on the Bay of Kotor, one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. It is well-known as well as the Fjord of the Mediterranean. Together with the nearly overhanging limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lovćen, Kotor and its surrounding area form an impressive landscape that will capture any tourist visiting the place. Kotor is one of the best preserved medieval towns in this part of the Mediterranean. The asymmetric structure of the narrow streets and squares, combined with the numerous medieval monuments, has given Kotor a nomination as a UNESCO cultural and natural heritage site. Kotor is one of the rare cities by the sea whose natural fortifications are formed by the sheer rocks of the mountain massif and two different hydrographic realities, the rivers and the sea. Thanks above all to its topographical position, as well as to the excellent terrestrial and maritime communication lines that have contributed to the development and consolidation of its role as a political, economic and cultural centre. Throughout history, Kotor has not only preserved some of its previous functions, but has developed new ones.
