Cruising the Bay of Kotor

There are numerous ways to explore Kotor.

Already in love with this place after exploring Kotor Old Town on foot,  I was keen to take the water approach and 'sea' how much better the views were from the water. There are public boats available in front of the Old Town you can take, but I chose a private boat tour with 360 Monte travel agency.

Here are are some visually immersive snaps of the Boka Bay.

Kotor Old Town, Montenegro

My Balkan trip started in Crna Gora; sitting on the Adriatic Sea with Mediterranean energy, it is often called Europe's most southernmost fjord.

I was super excited to start my journey in the land of mountains. Half of it is covered in thick forest, hence the name: Monte (mountain), negro (black).

Kotor is protected from the east by 20m hight fortification walls  ‘bulwarks’, from the west by the sea, from the North by the river Škurda and from the south by the underwater spring Gurdić. Wedged between mountains and a moody corner of the bay, beautiful Kotor was the perfect first stop of my Balkan trip.
