Sightseeing

One of the historical monuments of Montenegro is the fortress Španjola, which is located on one of the highest hills of Herceg Novi, at an altitude of about 170 meters above sea level. Outside the bastion of Spanjola looks very impressive and although almost nothing is intact inside it, it is worth a visit... In addition to the already mentioned elegant view of the surroundings, the fortress can offer a unique and amazing excursion to the past. Here you can still see the ancient barracks, loopholes and various farm buildings, touch the mighty walls and military structures that came into the power of nature (ivy, grass and trees) and disappear upon our eyes, but despite this, they retained the rebellious spirit of the past.

Forte Mare fortress, which means "Sea fortress", stands on the rocks in the southern part of Old Town of Herceg Novi. It is located near the main port of Herceg Novi, on the coast of the Bay of Kotor. It is assumed that the first stone was laid here at the end of the XIV century (in 1382) by the Bosnian king Tvrtko I to protect the city from attacks from sea. According to some reports, facing the bay fortress wall at that time had a special attachment for the mooring of ships approaching the city. A monument to the king is still on the waterfront opposite the Maritime Fortress. Currently, the fortress is a symbol of the city of Herceg Novi and historical attractions throughout Montenegro.

The name itself Kanli kula is of Turkish origin and it means a bloody tower. It is situated in the north part of the old town in Herceg Novi. With its size and position the tower dominates over the town (the height is 85 meters above the sea level). Kanli kula in fact used to be a complex fortification system. In the written documents Kanli kula is mentioned for the first time in XVII century. Over the time it suffered significant changes and destructions, so the exact time of its construction can not be determined precisely. The final shape the tower got during the time of Turkish reign while the Venetians, immediately after taking over Herceg Novi, made some remodeling. Today Kanli kula is mostly used as a summer stage.

Famous for the iridescent blue that's reflected throughout the cave, the Blue Cave is one of Montenegro's most popular attractions. The Blue Cave on Lustica Peninsula is one of the must-see attractions while you’re on the coast. We visit several times a year and we take all our visiting friends and family there. It never fails to impress! The Blue Cave is the largest of many sea caves on Lustica Peninsula. It’s called the Blue Cave because the way the light hits the sandy bottom and reflects up through the water makes the whole cave look blue. It’s very beautiful and it’s a lucky quirk because almost all of the coast here is rocky, not sandy. You can see the blue light shining out of the cave when you approach, but to really see it you’ve got to go inside and get underwater. Don’t forget your snorkel or goggles when you come here!

According to legend, after a shipwreck, fishermen from Perast found the icon of the Virgin Mary with Christ on the sea cliff and vowed to build a church on that spot, dedicated to the icon of the Virgin Mary, the patron of seamen and fishermen. The interior of the church is adorned by a marble altar, built in 1796 by Antonio Capellano, a sculptor from Genoa. It holds the famous icon of Gospa od Škrpjela, painted by the famous painter Lovro Dobrićević in the middle of the 15th century. The walls and ceiling of the church are covered in paintings on canvas by Tripo Kokolja, one of the most famous local baroque painters. The paintings were commissioned by Andrija Zmajević. Sixty-eight paintings, some of which are in large format make Gospa od Škrpjela Church a unique gallery of Southern Adriatic baroque painting. Most prominent compositions are dedicated to the life of the Virgin Mary and are located in the upper parts of the walls and ceiling: the Crowning of Mary, the Death of Mary and the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Between Kokolja’s paintings, on the lateral walls, there are votive silver plates with images of Boka ships, which Gospa od Škrpjela, as it is traditionally believed, helped in storms. The church building accommodates a collection of archaeological exhibits, paintings of ships, artisan craftwork and everyday objects.

City/town information

Old town Kotor Powerful city walls frame the historical heart of the town, stretching along the edge of the hill St. Ivan to its peak – its highest strategic point. The walls grew successively together with the city. It is not known when their construction started. The oldest parts are those that along the northern gate, to the river Škurda and in the southwestern part by the sea. Their vertical structure was reinforced later, when firearms started to be used, with sloping buttresses on the outside. As of the 15th century Kotor became a border city, and, because of the constant threat of Turkish attacks, walls were expanded and strengthened, and the north door was built (1540), the western door was reconstructed (1555) and southern door next to the spring and bastion Gurdić was reinforced. By the sea and along the river Škurda, several bastions were built with towering Citadel. The walls were built until the 19th century, particularly their upper part. Within them, on the slope of the hill, there is the church of Our Lady of Health, called also Our Lady of Rest, which was used for the rite of the military garrison of the upper fortress. The oldest recorded archaeological building within the city is the early Christian basilica from the 6th century which was found beneath the present church of Maria Collegiate. It was, apparently, an abbey, which indicates that Kotor was already a significant urban settlement and episcopal city. At the beginning of the 9th century, the city got its patron – St. Triphun (in the local language - Tripun), to whom the Memorial Church was dedicated in the year 809. A more intense urban development can be traced only from the 12th century. It is only then that a new big cathedral was built (1166), then numerous Romanesque churches - St. Luka (1195), Maria Collegiate, (1221), St. Ana (early 13th century), St. Paul (1263) and some other unsaved churches. As for the Gothic buildings the palace Drago singles out as well as the ruins of refurbished palaces of Buća and Bizanti, as well as numerous remains of architectural sculptures - portals, trifora (multiple arched windows), bifora (semi-circular headed windows) and other relief ornaments. Apart from the local builders, stonemasons and sculptors, special place belongs to Franciscan Vito from Kotor - builder of the Monastery Dečani. Masters from other coastal cities and even occasional foreigners worked in the city of Kotor as well. As for the craftsmen there were remarkable jewelers, whose products were widely known, and some of them also worked in other countries. Among their art and craft creations - religious, votive and luxury - which are kept in the treasury of the cathedral and other churches, special place belongs to the gilded silver pala in the cathedral. During the 13th and 14th centuries, a group of painters worked in Kotor, known in the history of arts as pictores graeci. Written sources of the archives of Kotor record the names of Nikola and Manojlo at the beginning of the 14th century and Georgije at the end of the 14th century. Some of those “Greek” painters painted the frescoes in the cathedral and Maria Collegiate of which only fragments are preserved. Little did it get to this day from the greatest of all the painters of Kotor - Lovro Marinov Dobričević, who is attributed frescoes in the church of St. Ana and picture on the board in the Cathedral with the Virgin Mary and Christ, on one side, and Ecce Homo, on the other side. The Baroque style is the style of many other churches built in that time (St. Joseph, Our Lady of the Angels, St. Ghost), Palaces (Pima, Grubonja, Grgurina) and city houses, while numerous structures, sacral and profane, were redone in baroque style. The needs for paintings and sculptures were mainly meet through the import from Venice. In the city only a few local artists worked such as Fra Deziderio Kotoranin, or foreign artists such as Francesco Cabianca, the Venetian sculptor, who in the early 18th century made his greatest works in the very city of Kotor. The last major construction projects within the urban core of the city of Kotor were executed in the times of the Austro-Hungarian administration when, in the late 19th and early 20th century, several buildings were built, public and private, in the spirit of secession, which do not fit into the urban core of the ancient town of Kotor in the best possible way. Because of authenticity and general cultural and historical values as the eternal link between the Mediterranean and the Balkan hinterland, Kotor is on the UNESCO’s list as part of the World Natural and Cultural Heritage.

Perast is one of the most beautiful and peaceful towns on Montenegro coast. If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation, you'll love it. Perast is surely one of the strangest, and by its history one of the most beautiful places in Kotor bay. Today it is often called the quietest town in Boka. Its narrow streets and numerous, mostly abandoned renaissance, and baroque palaces, testify about the former richness of the Kotor bay, and about the days when there used to be led a luxurious life of its inhabitants. Perast used to be a town of sailors, and it was know by that even outside the space of Montenegro. We can see even today that famous stone housed and captain’s palaces standing out. There are 16 preserved palaces in Perast, among them is the baroque palace Bujovic at the very entrance in Perast. Even though it doesn’t offer lots of events, Perast is quite interesting during the summer. During July and August various festivities like traditional Fasinada – a ritual procession of barges and boast, which take stones with them which is then put onto the Our Lady of the Rocks island, occur there. Fasinada is held in July. In August Perast is a host to the manifestation – Meetings of music clappers – in which competitors – singers compete in traditional singing which is present on the part of the Mediterranean which goes from Dalamatia to Montenegro. Because of the lack of beach zone, the coast of Perast is not suitable for beach tourism.

Rose is a fishing village of original architecture, close to the sea and leaning on a hill, located at the very tip of the Luštica peninsula, facing Herceg Novi - Rose is one of the most beautiful places on the Riviera. The hinterland is wooded with extraordinary examples of Mediterranean horticulture.

The place used to be a quarantine for world sailors, so today you can meet the descendants of Portuguese and Spanish sailors. You can reach Rosa by sea and land.

周邊交通資訊

Montenegro Bus Transport

Montenegro has a relatively good bus network that connects all the cities. It is also well connected with neighboring countries: Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Albania. However, Montenegro is a small country so certain lines are not very regular and their availability varies depending on the time of the year. Depending on your route, you might end up in old and poorly equipped bus which might reflect on the quality of your trip. If you need a transfer between two places in Montenegro, much better option is to book a private transfer. It is an affordable option.
