This tour involves two of the richest cultural places on the Montenegrin coast as well as ride all around a bay with some amazing photo oportunities.
Perast is for sure one of the most beautiful sights in Boka Kotorska bay. Today it is often called the quietest town in bay. Numerous narrow streets and baroque palaces which provide evidence of the previous rich lifestyle of the inhabitants, testify to the richness of the Bay of Kotor sometimes, on days when there used to be a luxurious life of its inhabitants. Perast used to be a town of sailors and for being known outside the territory of Montenegro. We can see even today the famous stone houses and captains mansions built in Baroque style.
We visit the Our Lady of the Rocks, manmade island in front of Perast from middle of 15th century, where 2 brothers from Perast found the painting of Our Lady, and the locals decided to buidl a chaoel dedicated to Mother of God. Rocks were piled around the site and a chapel built on it. Then, in Fasinada, traditional custom, they unloaded the rocks for centuries, sank dilapidated boats and Turkish ships, so that over time the surface of the island is increasingly spreading.
On the way around a bay we will have stop in Risan, small place in municipality of Kotor where we will find some mosaics which are dating from 2nd century, from the Roman period.
We will get some great opportunities for taking photos, specially from hill Trojica where we will have best angle for Kotor bay photography.
