Excursions to Kotor by bus

KotorKotor is a coastal town in Montenegro. It is located in a most secluded part of Gulf of Kotor. The old Mediterranean port of Kotor, surrounded by an impressive city wall built by Republic of Venice and the Venetian influence remains dominant among the architectural influences. The Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska), one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea is sometimes called the southern-most fjord in Europe.

PerastWe starting around 10 a.m. from Montenegro Apartments complex and drive through Kotor bay. One stop in old town Perast, which separates the bay of Risan from the bay of Kotor (two smaller bays within the Boka Kotorska) and overlooks the Verige strait, the narrowest part of Boka. Venice owned the city between 1420 and 1797. The city's sixteen Baroque palaces were mostly built in this period, too, as were its seventeen Catholic churches and two Orthodox churches. The old city does not have a defensive wall, but instead it has nine defensive towers, the most important of which is the tower of the Holy Cross.
From 1941 to 1943 during WWII, when Mussolini annexed the territories around Kotor to the Kingdom of Italy, the area was part of the Italian Governorship of Dalmatia and was called "Provincia di Cattaro". After 1945 Perast was restored to Yugoslavia and now is part of the independent Montenegro.

Kotor has been fortified since the early Middle Ages, when Emperor Justinian built a fortress above Acruvium in AD 535, after expelling the Goths, and a second town probably grew up on the heights round it, for Constantine Porphyrogenitus, in the 10th century, alludes to Lower Kotor. The city was plundered by the Saracens in 840. Until the 11th century the Dalmatian language was spoken in Kotor.
