Cruise to One of Europe’s Best-Preserved Medieval Cities

Don’t be surprised if you leave a piece of your heart in Kotor. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the old town is filled with churches, shops, bars, restaurants, and hidden piazzas. (The latter are perfect for enjoying a nice glass of Montenegrin wine like the subtle red Vranac or dry white Krstač.) The entire city is surrounded by stone, both in the form of imposing Mount Saint John and by towering ancient walls, creating a cozy feeling of protection when you walk the cobblestone streets.

And speaking of cobblestone streets, the maze-like arrangement can confuse even the locals, so don’t be too concerned if you take a wrong turn or two. Luckily, landmarks like the 12th century St. Tryphon Cathedral, and the Church of Our Lady of Health stand tall in the sky and can help guide you. When in doubt, just stick to the left (or right); the triangular layout will eventually lead you back to the main entrance, marked by the 16th century Sea Gate.

If you’re up for a challenge, climb the 1,350 steps to the top of the upper town walls. Standing nearly three miles above the city, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views of the entire city and bay, as well as the medieval St. John’s fortress.
