Wedged between steep mountains and a calm corner of the bay, with unwavering
walls snaking up the surrounding slopes, Kotor is one of the most popular
destinations in Montenegro, famed for its charming, UNESCO-protected Old Town
with museums, churches, cafe-strewn squares, Venetian era palaces and picturesque
cobbled streets.

Tivat Airport is only 5 kilometres away, with regular flights to Belgrade, Moscow, Paris and London and dozens of charter flights to various destinations during the summer season. Kotor is connected to the Adriatic Highway and the rest of the coast and inland Montenegro by the Vrmac Tunnel.
