World Heritage Kotor (Kotor). One of the best things about Kotor is to get lost in the maze of streets in the old town and find your way out. The town is not big, there are many churches, mainly Orthodox. There are many cafes on the roadside, you can take a break, and then continue to lose...
The ancient city of Kotor is a small medieval city. In history, it has been ruled by Rome, Byzantium, Venice, Ottoman, Austro-Hungary, etc. In particular, Venice has ruled for nearly four centuries. No wonder the buildings here have a typical Venetian style. It is also described by Lonely Planet: The dreamy mountains surround the fjord scenery, as if returning to a well-preserved ancient town in the Middle Ages. Modern luxury cruise ships slowly sail into the harbour irradiated by the slanting sun in the melodious bells, giving people a feeling of time and space crisscrossing ancient and modern times. The beautiful view of Kotor Harbour is intoxicating! Kotor has two most attractive places, one is the well-preserved medieval city pattern; the other is the complete city walls and fortresses from the sea to the top of the mountain. Walking in the crooked streets and entangled alleys, you will feel that the area of the city seems larger than it actually is. After a 10-minute stroll, you may find yourself back to the original place. The best way to see Kotor is endless. Walk.
Kotor is one of the most intact cities on the Adriatic coast that preserves the original appearance of the medieval city and is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. At the same time, Kotor also has a large number of historical sites, such as the St. Triffin Cathedral built in 1166 in the Old City and the ancient city wall that stretches over the city for 4.5 kilometers.
The ancient city of Kotor, which is listed as the world's intangible cultural heritage, is full of Venetian architecture, whether it is a government agency or a museum. Outside the city is a pool of clear water, with seagulls frolicking from time to time. There are two ancient cannons outside the ancient city gate, and a lion with wings is carved on the wall. During the day, there is an endless stream of tourists. It is recommended to enter the city more than 6 o'clock in the morning, there are basically no people in the ancient city, suitable for taking pictures. Even more beautiful is the Kotor Bay! It is not so much a bay as it is a lake. There was no wave on the water. If it weren't for the giant cruise ship at the dock, I really didn't believe the water would be so deep. In the early morning, strolling along the bay, the yachts are more beautiful than the other. On the side of the pier, there are two anglers faintly standing behind, like an ink painting. As the sun rises, Kotor Bay is revealed from the clouds and the green hills on both sides are set against the turquoise Mediterranean, which is a paradise for photographers.
