We visited Kotor, Montenegro while we were cruising the East Mediterranean on MSC Musica. The ship entered the narrow canal to dock and the view was amazing, a must see city, beautiful mountains and beach.

One of the most beautiful bays in the world! It has that unique old felling to it that makes you feel like you are in a lord of the rings movies. I recommend you take a boat trip around the bay to see the full beauty of it. Only slight downside is that the water tends to be bit cool... More

We have been coming here for several years now cruising into Kotor. Each time it is a unique and wonderful experience, no matter the time of the day. Once you take a stroll through the town of Kotor, I recommend taking a taxi up to Njegusi village for some more amazing views of the bay from above and for great... More

It was a wonderful walking from Kotor old town. I went there in July, super hot but you can enjoy the nice water and sun in Kotor bay. There are some nice restaurants too in Dobrota area.

This is a particularly good trip to traverse by sea, as many places are best viewed from the deck of a ship

Fabulous sail in along supposedly the most most southern fijord, the scenery is spectacular, so calm and peaceful. Our ship tendered passengers right at the furthest tip of the fijord to the Old Town, a walled town with tiny cobbled alleys and fortified walls to walk upon. It was market day and all was chaos, tour buses are available as... More

The bay of Kotor was stunning, the colours of the mountain and water change with the changing weather, some days we woke up to silver, mirror - looking water and others days its was blue or green!The water is so clear! We went in December 2015 after wanting to visit Montenegro for some time and we were not disappointed

Kotor, Perast, Muo, Prcanj, Dobrota, Risan... these are a must see places. During summer it can be excruciating, but try to visit Kotor bay during spring or autumn. During winter is too calm.

Nowhere else can you find, so much natural wealth, beauty, mild beaches, clear lakes, fast rivers, and gorgeous mountains in such a compact area as in Montenegro.
