Description

Embark on a private cruise lasting 3 hours and delve into the enchanting highlights of Kotor. Set foot on a cozy luxury boat complete with plush seat cushions and a selection of chilled beverages for a leisurely voyage along the picturesque shoreline of the ancient Bay of Kotor. Pause at the quaint island nestled in the heart of the bay, home to the revered Our Lady of the Rocks Church. Legend has it that local fishermen meticulously crafted this man-made islet, brick by brick, inspired by a particular rock where shipwrecked sailors purportedly witnessed an apparition of the Virgin Mary. Step into the venerable 15th-century church to behold a splendid marble altar adorned with an icon of Our Lady of the Rocks, masterfully painted by the esteemed Balkan artist, Lovro Dobric. Adorning the walls are exquisite Baroque paintings by the renowned Kotor artist, Tripo Kokolja, featuring notable works such as The Crowning of Mary, Mary's Death, and Exaltation of the Holy Mother of God. Following this immersive experience, retreat to the vessel and embark on a scenic journey across the tranquil waters to the charming town of Perast. Acknowledged as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Perast once served as a favored retreat for Russian czars and Venetian nobility. Traverse the historic village, adorned with 16 elegant Baroque palaces, 17 Catholic churches, and 9 formidable defensive towers. This insightful excursion offers a glimpse into the rich tapestry of history and culture that has drawn artists, fishermen, and travelers to this captivating region throughout the ages.
