      Kotor, Montenegro
      From (USD) $207 Per Person (Based on 2)
      Highlights
      • Perast: Covering about one acre, this 1000-year-old town hugging the edge of Kotor Bay may have more palaces and churches per square foot than any spot on earth.
      • Our Lady of the Rocks: Take the bay ferry to a 15th-century church that has a treasure trove of art, including the 33-foot-long Death of the Virgin, and a fascinating legend behind it.
      • Kotor: Your guide will take you on a fascinating tour of medieval Old Town's winding streets, fortified walls, palaces, and the 850-year old Cathedral of St. Tryphon.
      About This Kotor Tour

      It used to be one of the richest and most powerful places in the Balkans, which goes a long way toward explaining why it remains one of the most beautiful. Its glory days may be in its past, but Perast continues to captivate.

      There's just one main street there, but you'll find two offshore islands – one of which is man-made, 17 palaces, and 16 churches. St. Nicholas' Church is at the center of it all, a large church nestled in a small square. And while it's certainly the focal point of this small village, it's still not finished – four centuries after construction began. The remains of several saints are found here, along with a treasury filled with artifacts. And a climb to the top of its imposing bell tower reveals breathtaking views of the bay and the mountains that ring Perast.

      One thing you'll see from that viewpoint is the Church of Our Lady of the Rocks, and a ferry will take you there. Legend has it that, in 1452, local seamen returning to Perast after a shipwreck saw an image of the Virgin Mary on a rock in Kotor Bay. Grateful to have returned home safely, they vowed to build a church on the site of the wreck. So every time they returned from sea safely, they'd lay a rock in the bay. Over the years, an islet emerged from the sea, and the church was eventually built upon it. Locals still throw rocks into the sea to this day, and the island keeps getting bigger. Get ready to make your contribution.

      Rocky romance

      Inside the Church of Our Lady of the Rocks is a famous votive tapestry embroidered by a woman from Perast named Jacinta Kunic-Mijovic. She worked on it for 25 years while her beloved was off on a long journey, going blind before she finished the work. The tapestry is woven with golden and silver fibers – and strands of her own hair.
