Kotor: A Well Preserved Medieval Coastal Town

Kotor is located in Montenegro, on the secluded very inner end of Bay of Kotor, which also goes by the name “Europe’s southernmost fjord”. Surrounded by steep rocky hills on the landside, the town is hidden from the eyes. Kotor has a population around 13.000, and has gained a lot of popularity among tourists and especially among yachters in the recent years.

Probably due to its secluded location, Kotor has a very well preserved medieval feel floating lively on its narrow alleys. The town as a whole and the region surrounding it, is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.
