Perast is an old town located in the Bay of Kotor, just a few kilometres northwest of Kotor. It was originally a town of sailors. There are still 16 preserved captain’s palaces in Perast. With only a few hundreds inhabitants, it is now the quietest town of the Bay of Kotor. Perast has relatively sunny winters and several festivities in summer. It lacks beach zones. 

 

Our Lady of the Rocks (Gospa od Skrpjela) and St George (Sveti Dorde) are two islets situated near Perast in the Bay of Kotor. The first one, also known as the island of the dead captains, is an artificial island and contains the Church of Our Lady of the Rocks and its numerous paintings. The second islet is a natural island and contains the Saint George Benedictine monastery. Both are worth a visit.


The region of Kotor is a world heritage site (UNESCO).

The Bay of Kotor is one of the places in the world where you can swim in the warm sea waters and later climb high mountains since the southern slopes of Mount Orjen directly borders the Bay.  

 

Mount Orjen is situated at 1.895 m height above sea level. It offers several caving, hiking and climbing opportunities as well as great views on the riviera and the whole country in the sunny days. The area has a rich flora and fauna.
