A port town located off the Gulf of Kotor, popular with travelers for its natural beauty, and several historic landmarks.

Kotor is a coastal town in Montenegro. It is located in a secluded part of the Bay of Kotor. The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by fortifications built during the Venetian period.
