Photographer's Note

One of many interesting windows in the old city of Kotor.

Kotor is a coastal city in Montenegro. It is located in a secluded part of the Gulf of Kotor.

The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by an impressive city wall built by the Republic of Venice and Venetian influence remains predominant in the city's architecture. The Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska; Bocche di Cattaro), one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. Some have called the southern-most fjord in Europe, but it is a ria, a submerged river canyon. Together with the nearly overhanging limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lovćen, Kotor and its surrounding area form an impressive and picturesque Mediterranean landscape.
Kotor is part of the World Heritage Site dubbed the Natural and Culturo-Historical Region of Kotor.
