Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
Get in touch with nature at Bay of Kotor and Fishing Charters & Tours. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Stari Grad Kotor and St. Tryphon Cathedral. When in Kotor, make a side trip to see Ploce Beach in Krimovice, approximately Krimovice away. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to City Walls, steep yourself in history at Church of St. Elijah the Prophet, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Holy Mother Rozaria, and take in the pleasant sights at Old Cotor Road.
