Kotor, which was first settled during the days of ancient Rome, is located along one of Montenegro’s most beautiful fjord-like bays.

In the old city you’ll come across architectural masterpieces created over the centuries by Romans, Byzantines, Normans and Swabians.You can marvel the majestic Castello Svevo (Swabian Castle), the imposing Saint Nicholas’s Basilica, the Cathedral and the famous Teatro Petruzzelli, considered the temple of opera in Bari.
