Photographer's Note

Kotor is a coastal town in Montenegro. It is located in a part of the Gulf of Kotor. The port of Kotor is surrounded by fortifications built during the Venetian period. It is located on the Bay of Kotor, one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. Some have called it the southern-most fjord in Europe, but it is a submerged river canyon. Together with the nearly overhanging limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lovcen, Kotor and its surrounding area form an impressive landscape.

In recent years Kotor has seen an increase in tourists, many of them coming by cruise ships. Visitors are attracted by the natural environment of the Gulf of Kotor. Kotor is part of the World Heritage Site dabbled the Natural and Cultural-Historical Region of Kotor. The fortified city of Kotor was also included in UNESCO's World Heritage Site list as part of Venetian Works of Defense between 15th and 17th centuries.
