Stepping into Kotor is kind of like stepping into a fairy tale. The majestic mountains that adorn the Bay of Kotor lead you into a medieval fortress of a medieval city. The city of Kotor was founded in the 5th century B.C. the Ancient Romans and has long been conquered by many civilizations along the way. The rich naval history of this fortified port is unlike any other coastal city along the Adriatic Sea.
This city was built to deter intruders from the ground up. The advantages provided by stunning mountains announced any unwelcome visitors long before they were able to make their way in. The city boasts the best defense inside its walls too! The streets were constructed in a labyrinth manner ideal to confuse and disorient outsiders. I admit to getting lost but it was perfect to just explore the city at my own pace. Each turn presented a new marvel.
