If you have a taste for the usual and exotic, then the Montenegrin city of Kotor rates among Europe’s top yachting destinations. It’s conveniently located, too, at the very heart of the continent.
You’re guaranteed to be bewitched by the crystal-clear Adriatic, state-of-the-art marinas, the imposing grandeur of Montenegro’s mountains, monasteries and fortifications from the Medieval and Renaissance eras, and, of course, delectable cuisine.
Kotor is located on the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska), one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. Some refer to it as the southern-most fjord in Europe, but it is a ria, or a submerged river canyon.
With the overhanging limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lovćen, Kotor and the surrounding region create a picturesque landscape.
