Founded by the Romans on the Adriatic coast in Montenegro, Kotor developed in the Middle Ages into an important commercial and artistic center with its own famous schools of masonry and iconography. Throughout the centuries, many empires battled for control of the city. In the 10th century, it was an autonomous city of the Byzantine Empire. From 1186 to 1371, it was a free city of medieval Serbia. It was under Venetian and Hungarian control for brief periods, an independent republic from 1395 to 1420 and then returned to Venetian control once again. French occupation from 1807 to 1914 was followed by Austrian rule until 1918 when Kotor finally became part of Yugoslavia.

Throughout its turbulent history, a variety of buildings have been erected. The largest and most impressive of these is the St Tryphon Cathedral. The original church was constructed in the 8th century, according to the annals of the Byzantine Emperor. A new church, built in 1166, was subsequently damaged during the 1667 earthquake and then restored.

Kotor is treasure trove of historic monuments and cultural heritage, and will not leave guests indifferent. Your walk through the old streets of the city will be accompanied by narration from a dedicated local guide. A large number of the monuments including four Romanesque churches and the town walls were seriously damaged by the 1979 earthquake but the town has since been restored. Today Kotor is a city of traders and famous sailors in which carnivals and fiestas are organized each year to give additional charm to this beautiful city.

Through the entire city the buildings are criss-crossed with narrow streets and squares. At one of them there is the Cathedral of St Tripun, a monument of Roman culture and one of the most recognizable symbols of the city. The Church of St Luka, Church St Ana, Church St Marija, Church Gospe od Zdravlja, the Prince’s Palace and the Napoleon Theater are all treasures that are part of the rich heritage of Kotor and range in date from the 12th century to the 19th.
