The Gulf of Kotor Montenegro
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Gulf of Kotor

The Gulf of Kotor, land of black mountains, was formed by a ramified estuary, deeply anchored inland. The gulf consists of several bays, linked together by streams. The coastline is original because of its lush greenery, typically Mediterranean, which dives into the sea. The old town of Kotor was destroyed by an earthquake in 1979, but there remains a few interesting buildings, such as Saint Triphon's Cathedral. The church treasure contains a whole bunch of relics such as Saint-Triphon's arms, legs and head. Herceg-Novi is a very busy sea resort. It is a very picturesque old town, built as an amphitheatre and situated on woody hills. It has sand and gravel beaches. It is a place where you can rest and recharge your batteries thanks to its subtropical climate. The city has 15th century fortifications, as well as a fortress, the Spanjola, built by the Ottomans in 1539. The famous Orthodox monastery of Savina is only a little over a mile from there. You can see many primitive frescos in the small 11th century church. A collection of religious works of art of the Renaissance period and of baroque style is exhibited in an adjoining building.

The church was built in the 17th century on a 3,000m artificial island on the spot where one of the locals is believed to have been healed after seeing an icon of the virgin.
