Exploring the Bay of Kotor
The tour starts at the city park near Kotor’s port, 200 m from Old town’s main gate. A friendly skipper will await you and make sure you’re seated safely and comfortably for what’s meant to be a captivating trip throughout the Bay of Kotor.
Our first stop is at an islet in the middle of Boka Bay, which bears the name of the church that’s settled on it – Our Lady of the Rocks. Tales speak of an icon of the Holy Mother of God with Christ, found by seamen after a shipwreck. In commemoration of the event, local fishermen vowed to throw rocks at the same spot where the Lady had been found, thus enlarging and creating a beautiful artificial islet that harbors the church that’s been built in Her honor. The interior of the church dates back from the 15th century and houses a marble altar holding an icon of Our Lady of the Rocks (made by famous painter Lovro Dobric), many Baroque paintings like the Crowning of Mary, Death of Mary, and Exaltation of the Holy Mother of God, made by Tripo Kokolja (renown Kotor painter), etc.
Next comes the cruise to a small picturesque town called Perast. This UNESCO World Heritage site, with its Baroque architecture, historic palazzos, Catholic churches, and defensive towers, will catapult your senses into the ancient times of this place. In spite of having only one main street, the Old town is packed with history, attractions, and hedonistic experiences that visitors will cherish for many years to come.
