Bay of Kotor Tour: The Best Way to Experience Bay of Kotor (Montenegro)
Bay of Kotor tour involves two of the richest cultural places on the Montenegrin coast as well as ride all around the Bay of Kotor with some amazing photo opportunities.
Perast is for sure one of the most beautiful sights in Boka Kotorska bay (Bay of Kotor). Today it is often called the quietest town in bay. Numerous narrow streets and baroque palaces which provide evidence of the previous rich lifestyle of the inhabitants, testify to the richness of the Bay of Kotor in times past, on days when there used to be a luxurious life of its inhabitants. Perast used to be a town of sailors in Bay of Kotor and for being known outside the territory of Montenegro. We can see even today the famous stone houses and captains’ mansions built in Baroque style.
Bay of Kotor tour: We visit the Our Lady of the Rocks, manmade island in front of Perast from middle of 15th century, where 2 brothers from Perast found the painting of Our Lady, and the locals decided to build a chapel dedicated to Mother of God. Rocks were piled around the site and a chapel built on it. Then, in Fasinada, traditional custom in Bay of Kotor, they unloaded the rocks for centuries, sank dilapidated boats and Turkish ships, so that over time the surface of the island is increasingly spreading.
On the way around the Bay of Kotor we will stop in Risan, small place in municipality of Kotor where we will find some mosaics which are dating from 2nd century, from the Roman period.
We will get some great opportunities for taking photos, specially from hill Trojica where we will have best angle for taking photographs of the Bay of Kotor.
