At the foot of Mt Lovcen, deep inside one of the most beautiful bays on the Mediterranean, and even the world, lies Kotor, a town of rich cultural tradition and one of best preserved medieval settlements in this part of the Mediterranean.
Kotor is the largest old urban settlement in Montenegro. Its historic core expanded on a triangular area between the mountains, the sea, and the river Skurda and spring Gurdic.
Because of authenticity and general cultural and historical values as the eternal link between the Mediterranean and the Balkan hinterland, Kotor is on the UNESCO’s list as part of the World Natural and Cultural Heritage. Two thousand years of turbulent but glorious history left traces in every stone in its buildings, towers, castles and walls, on paintings, wall-paintings and in sayings written in stones or on paper, on its gates or its narrow streets.
There is this strong feeling in the air of the need for these people to carry on with the centuries-old tradition of this town to welcome and entertain visitors, but also to enchant them with the power of its perplexing narrow streets, squares, old buildings, churches, town walls, and gates.
