Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
Escape the urban bustle at Bay of Kotor and Viewing Point at the Road Kotor-Lovcen. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at St. Nikola Church and Plavi Horizonti Beach. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at R.K.C. Gospa od Škrpjela, take in panoramic vistas at Kampana Tower, step into the grandiose world of Kotor’s Castle Of San Giovanni, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Roko Church.

For other places to visit, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Kotor online road trip planner .
