The beautiful bay of Kotor
The Bay of Kotor (Serbian: Бока Которска, Boka Kotorska) is a bay in southwestern Montenegro. It is one of the main tourist attractions of Montenegro. The Bay of Kotor has been inhabited for ages and is home to several picturesque towns such as Kotor, Risan, Tivat, Perast and Herceg Novi, as well as many churches and monasteries. Furthermore, there are several islands in the bay, including the artificial church island of Gospa od Škrpjela and the monastery island of Sveti Đorđe, which lie off the coast of Perast.
Nearly 30.000 people live around the bay, who are predominantly Orthodox Christians and Roman Catholics. Kotor Bay is protected by UNESCO, because of its very high cultural value.
