About Kotor Bay, Montenegro

The Kotor bay area is undoubtedly Montenegro’s most popular spot and it is well justified, as it is the perfect combination of history and nature!

Its 107.3 km of shoreline, surrounded by the Dinaric Alps and populated with small medieval cities is pure charm!

Kotor Bay has been on the UNESCO list since 1979 under Natural and Cultural-Historical Region of Kotor. Its numerous Orthodox and Catholic churches and monasteries make it a major pilgrimage site.

The bay has been inhabited since antiquity. Slavs, Serbs, Romans, Ottomans, Venetians, Italians and Austrian-Hungarians have ruled Montenegro’s territory through centuries leaving a mark of war and instability in the region. 

Kotor, Risan, Tivat, Perast, Prčanj and Herceg Novi are the 6 well-preserved medieval towns in the bay. Commonly known as a fjord, the Kotor bay is in reality a ria – submerged river canyon. The bay is about 28 km long with a shoreline extending around 100 km, and it is surrounded by the Dinaric Alps

Kotor is a secluded part of the Gulf of Kotor. The city has a population of 13,510 and is surrounded by 4.5 km of fortifications and walls built during the Venetian period. Kotor is famous for its churches, the most popular being the Cathedral of Saint Tryphon, built in 1166. The city is a part of the World Heritage Site as part of Venetian Works of Defense between 15th and 17th centuries.

Kotor has a humid subtropical climate, with average temperatures ranging from 10°C to 20°C It is one of the wettest places in Europe, with frequent thunderstorms in the autumn but with a very dry summer and frequent risk of forest fires. Two wind systems rule in the region: Bora and Jugo. Bora can reach 250 km/h and can cool the air temperature within hours. Jugo is a warm humid wind and brings with it rain.

Best of Adriatic Recommends

“When visiting Our Lady of the Rocks church, squeeze into the small passage behind the altar. In the middle you will find a hole that is actually the original reef where the icon that originated the island was found. People believe it gives good luck and a bit of extra luck is always welcome!”


“If you feel up to the task, climb the Kotor city walls. They are steep, but the breathtaking view is very much worth the effort!”


“My husband and I are older and I use a cane. Amanda was so caring and patient, and we were able to walk at my own pace, get to see all that was described on the tour, and gain lots of information on the bay. Perast and the boat ride were my favorites! The most spectacular day at the Kotor Bay!”


“We were a group of 6 looking for a daytrip from Dubrovnik to the bay of Kotor. We were so glad we chose Best of Adriatic to take us! Nataša was great and clear in her communication when we were planning the service, but also on the day of the tour! She was so knowledgeable and friendly, and most of all, shared her love for the region with us. We had a great time and definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great tour in Montenegro!”
