The coastal city of Kotor, Montenegro, is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It has a unique character that has been determined by its history, that it was always a place of mixture, which is visible at  first glance: western European and Byzantine styles are reflected even in the building blocks themselves with the varying textures and marble hues.

The town lies huddled at the foot of Mt Lovcen, at the farthest end of the Bay of Kotor and, although palms and olives surround the Old Town, the high mountains casting their shadows give it a mysterious and memorable look.

A small marina of the city of Kotor is based just in front of the main city gates (where the vegetable and fish markets are held) and the mighty 20-metre ramparts that shield Kotor’s Old Town from the waterfront. Kotor marina attracts many big cruisers and luxurious yachts from early spring until the end of autumn. This is the view of the marina in the evening hours. The photo is taken from the terraces of Galion Restaurant, a famous fish restaurant with the splendid view of the town.
