Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
Start off your visit on the 17th (Mon): explore the historical opulence of Castle Of San Giovanni, then don't miss a visit to Stari Grad Kotor, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at R.K.C. Gospa od Škrpjela, and finally delve into the distant past at St. Tryphon Cathedral. Here are some ideas for day two: explore the fascinating underground world of Blue Grotto, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ploce Beach, and then get to know the fascinating history of City Walls.
