On a cloudy hazy day, our cruise ship sail through the winding Bay of Kotor. There sits the old town of Kotor, at the foot hill of lush black forest mountains. It felt like I’m in a magic fairy land. When we sailed away in the evening, we could see the light of the city wall surrounding the town. It... More

We drove around the bay from Herceg Novi to Kotor via Risan, Perast and Our Lady of the Rocks and took the car ferry back across the water from Lepetane. Surrounded by stunning mountains, it's breathtaking!

Absolutely breath taking port to come into. Did not disappoint, able to get a great view from the top of the walls of the city.

Dramatic setting with beautiful mountains plunging straight down to the sea. The drive around the bay to the old city of Kotor is wonderful.

Went on a cruise here. One of the most picturesque things I've seen, not only the bay but the ship seated in the bay. And the ride out of Kotor went on forever. It's the end of a ria, which was described to me as a fjord that was created by a river rather than a glacier (I haven't looked... More

ok a bit dirty if you walk the shore. But from a distance it is a lovely bay. It helps if the bay is not full of cruise ships. Go late in Oct when they ate gone.

My cruise sailed into the Bay of Kotor. The morning was clear and chilly. The mountains at the foot of Kotor bay are lined with pines and other dark trees that give Montenegro its name. It was surreal to see the ocean (and ship) so close to the mountains. It was also surreal to see how high the mountains were... More

This is one of the most stunning places anywhere and if you can go via ship the sail in/away through the fjord is magical (especially in the evening when you can have drink in hand). We want to go back and be able to explore more as the villiages in the bay all look inviting.
