    Stayed inside the old town -an orange color little kingdom for a week. Situated right next to the Škurda River and Bay of Kotor to the North, West and part South, backed by castles, mountains and high walls to the East.
    It's so pretty, I wanted to take my time instead of killing myself this time. But It was impossible. I almost passed out the day I left; collapsed on the bus with an all aching body and legs hoping to recuperate when my bus gets to Albania.

    It took 3 days to just find my bearings around. Still unsure at the end if there were 4 or 5 big gates linking by high walls. By the way, it was a smoker's Paradis. A packer of cigarette is 10 times cheaper than what you pay in Aust.

    We have done the road trip with a car which give flexibility to stop for visits or to enjoy the view. The only roadtrip that competes with Kotor Bay's is Big Sur's in California. Yes it is that beautiful... apart from the full time beautiful scenery, several stops are worthwhile : Kotor of course, Perast, and Sveti Stefan were our preferred. For lunch, Perast is a good option. Pick a sunny day for this trip!

    Once upon a time, the threat of invasions (be they Ottomans or someone else) prompted Kotor to build a defensive wall system. The remnants of these walls still creep up the hills and remind us all of how the community dealt with threats.

    Our best views were from the Seabourn Quest as we made our way into the Bay of Kotor.

    We did a private tour with Mont Travel (owner/operator Dimitrije Jovicic) and one of our stops was this lookout that provided a beautiful view of Kotor and the entire peninsula that our cruise ship sailed in from the Adriatic Sea.

    Pretty little church that has an upstairs section with artifacts and archways to look out onto the town square. The main floor has elaborate alters all around the outside. There are silver religious artifacts, textiles and more upstairs.

    Tuesday 14th June we were on a day tour to Kotor from Dubrovnik. We visited this Serbian Orthodox Church during our walk around the Old Town. It was just a short distance down the road from the Monastery of St Claire, which we had just visited.

    Walking along the street this Church was an unmissable sight with it's two large black domed bell towers. The domes are both topped by a gold cross. The Serbian flag hanging over the main entrance is also a feature. Just below the flag is a fresco of a Saint, possibly Nicholas.

    The building of this Church was completed in 1909 and on our tourist map referred to as the Church of St Nicholas 1909. It was built on the site of another Orthodox Church which burnt down on Christmas Eve 1896.

    The interior of the Church is rather special, it is filled with numerous paintings of Saints. The most eye-catching feature is the floor to ceiling reredos, altar screen. It comprises of four levels of paintings of holy people, in excess of thirteen paintings, all topped with a golden cross.

    Also housed in the Church is a rather beautiful silver icon.

    A couple of immense paintings of Saints, one we assumed was St Nicholas, fill one of the walls of the Church

    A number of ornate silver chandeliers hang from the ceiling including the dome.

    There are a number of spectacular silver freestanding candelabras around the Church, standing on the black and white tiled floor.

    Sunlight streams through the arched coloured glass windows around the walls.

    There is no admission fee to enter this beautiful Church.

    Beautiful square inside of the walled city that sets the scene. A nice place to find a restaurant, sit and people watch or where you can start a little self-guided walking tour.
