Undoubtedly, Montenegro is a country that deserves to be added to the itinerary of every self-respecting traveller. And yet, it is surprising how such a tiny Balkan country could win enormous popularity among sophisticated tourists worldwide. According many, the secret lies in its unique nature representing a perfect combination of turquoise Adriatic sea and majestic mountains as well as ancient small cities located along the entire coast and managed to preserve the authentic atmosphere of the distant past. The old town of Kotor is one of them, so your cruise trip across the Mediterranean coast would not be complete without visiting this hidden gem of the Balkans.

“When the pearls of nature were sown, on this soil an overflowing handful was gathered. The most beautiful contact between the earth and sea took place at the Montenegrin littoral”

Lord Byron

The bay is naturally divided into four smaller parts: the Herceg-Novi-bay, Risan-bay, Kotor-bay and Tivat-bay. As pearls, the small towns, as treasuries of history, art and beauty, are strung on their coastline, with Kotor as an old coastal and cultural centre. For centuries, it has been a crossroad of commercial itineraries under strong influence of Venice. It is protected by mountains with a strong defence structure built during the time of the Byzantine Empire. Kotor represents one of the most famous coastal cities of Montenegro located on the Bay of Kotor (often called Boka Kotorska Bay), in the northern part of the country’s coast. This fortified city with its rich medieval history and architecture was rightfully included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Kotor cruise port represents a pier and the dock that is located about 300 feet far from the old city surrounded by the old medieval wall. Smaller ships can be docked right near the pier whereas larger cruise ships anchor farther because of the lack of space on the dock, so tourists are offered to use the so-called tender boats to reach the city of Kotor.
