Boka Kotorska is the largest bay of the Adriatic Sea. It begins with the Bay of Herceg Novi, which is narrowed by the Kumbor Strait, it crosses into the Tivat bay, and through the Cherries it enters the Risan and Kotor bays. This region is known as the area with the highest average precipitation in Europe.
“They call it the magical gulfs in which they descend and tone the bordering and almost inaccessible hills of southern Herzegovina and Montenegro. They say people who obdate the world, that this is one of the most beautiful positions of the country; and I would really say that nature played here when she did her marvelous work on mosses “(Stefan Mitrov Ljubiša)
Boka Kotorska is a unique bay of the Mediterranean – an exceptional cultural landscape that makes a harmonious symbiosis of natural phenomena and architectural heritage. The extremely favorable and specific natural and climatic conditions of the Gulf were crucial for the settlement of this area from the earliest times and the construction of cities and settlements in a unique way, resulting in a unique harmony of the creatures of nature and the human spirit.
Boka Kotorska is on the list of the Club of the most beautiful bays of the world. Due to its exceptional universal cultural and natural values, the part of the Bay of Kotor, the Kotor area that includes the Kotor and the cartoon part of the bay, has been in existence since 1979 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
