    What to Expect
    Risan se nalazi na krajnjen sjevernom dijelu Boke Kotorske, oivičen sa juga Risanskim zalivom, a sa ostalih strana strmim padinama, obroncima karakterističnim u geomorfološkom smislu za čitav Dinarski sistem kojem pripadaju. Grad datira iz 3. veka p. n. e. i za njega su znali Heleni. 
    Osnovalo ga je ilirsko pleme Rizunita, a u antičko vrijeme zaliv Boku Kotorsku su po njemu zvali Risanski zaliv (Sinus Rhizonicus). Mjesto je nakon osnivanja postalo središte Ilirske države i glavna njihova tvrđava: ilirska plemena su doživela najveći napredak pod vođstvom kraljice Teute koja je iz njega vladala. U sjedistu grada nalaze se Rimski Mozaici, koje vrijede posjetiti!This excursion gives you an opportunity to make a pilgrimage tour to the famous functional orthodox monastery – 
    Ostrog, founded by the Metropolitan Bishop of Hercegovina Basil in the middle of the 17th century. After his death he was buried and canonized here. First, you can visit the upper monastery built on the rock and consisted of two temples: the Church of the Presentation (the 18th century) and the Church of the Holy Cross (1665). In the Church of the Presentation St. Basil of Ostrog spent 15 years in prayers. There is a reliquary with the hallows St. Basil of Ostrog in the temple. This monastery is the third Orthodox holy shrine in size in the world. It is worth mentioning that not only Orthodox believers come to this place but Catholics and Muslims as well.
