December 2016 - Empires of the Mediterranean
Kotor, Montenegro

Kotor is a coastal town in Montenegro located in a secluded part
of the Gulf of Kotor. The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded
by fortifications built during the Venetian period. It is located on the
Bay of Kotor, one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea.
Some have called it the southern-most fjord in Europe, but it is a ria,
a submerged river canyon. Together with the nearly overhanging
limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lovćen, Kotor and its surrounding area
form an impressive and picturesque Mediterranean landscape.
