Description

Embark on a serene cruise tour that offers a respite from the urban hustle and a chance to immerse in the vibrant biodiversity of Kotor. Explore Boka Bay, where ancient Romanesque churches and a myriad of historical landmarks await. Setting sail from Kotor's seaport, a welcoming skipper awaits travelers on board. Uncover the hidden treasures of Boka Bay, from authentic fishing grounds to villages, antique Romanesque churches, Byzantine palaces, and various other historical marvels. Among the panoramic vistas, the first captivating sight is the islet of Our Lady of the Rocks, steeped in a mythical legend spanning over five centuries. The lore narrates that sailors, upon discovering the Madonna and Child emblem on a sea rock, expanded this artificial island as a token of gratitude for safe voyages. Expressing their gratitude, seafarers pledged devotion to the Holy Mother, gradually transforming the site into an island that now hosts the Lady of the Rocks church. Visitors can absorb tales of relics while marveling at the chapel's numerous frescoes, paintings, votives, tapestries, and other treasures. Outside, guests can pause for refreshments, acquire souvenirs, or indulge in ice cream. The journey continues to Perast, a UNESCO heritage site that has witnessed inhabitants from the Illyrian, Roman, and Christian eras. The architecture, marked by nine defensive towers, Baroque palaces from the 17th and 18th centuries, and unique Catholic churches, reflects the city's prosperity under Venetian rule.
