Kotor, known as Cattaro in medieval times, has the most dramatic setting of any town along the Mediterranean Sea.
In the far corner of the impressive Kotor Bay, surrounded by 1,400 metre high mountains, its medieval stone churches and houses huddle together within a small triangle of mighty fortress walls, squeezed between the waterfront and the mountains raising sheer up behind. It's been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1979, and you'd be mad not to visit.
With a population of 14,000 it is situated just 80km from Podgorica, 22km from Budva and 90km from Dubrovnik across the border in Croatia, and is easily reached by bus.
