Kotor Panorama by miketlim

The fortifications surrounding Kotor have been in place since the 14th century and are on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Its architecture was influenced by Illyricum, Byzantium, Venice and Austria.

The Church of Our Lady of Remedy, shown in the photo, sits 100m above the city of Kotor and can be accessed by ascending the numerous steps that scale the walls.

Below, you can see the red roofs of the “old town” which are a result of Kotor’s time under Ventian rule. Our cruise ship also stands a short distance behind the city. It was amazing how close the docks of the city were to the old town.
