From Dubrovnik, we took a day tour to Kotor, which is a coastal town in Montenegro and the only town on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. It is also one of the best preserved medieval old towns in the Adriatic and hence, recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
The first thing you notice about the town is the fortifications, which are about 4.5km long and have been around for centuries.
The Saint Tryphon Cathedral, which was built in 1166, but was damaged during two massive earthquakes, one in 1667 and another in 1979. It had to be rebuilt after both disasters.
The Serbian Orthodox Church which received recognition in 1219. It is the second oldest Slavic Orthodox Church in the world.
After walking around, we decided to climb to the Church of Our Lady of Health to have a bird’s eye view of the town. It was about 700 steps up.
It was totally worth the climb!
After making the return trip back to Dubrovnik, we went to a pizzeria for dinner.
