There are also well-known cultural and historical monuments that remind us that time unfailingly moves forward, and that people are left with their works. In the following text, we suggest you visit some of the attractions:
  • Gospa od Skrpjela - Gospa od Skrpjela is an island in front of Perast. This island is artificial and was created at the end of the 15th century. It is believed that it was built at the place where the Morsic brothers found an image of Our Lady on a cliff in the Risan Bay, so the residents of Perast decided to build a Roman Catholic church of the Virgin Mary on that spot. Stones were thrown around the rock and a small chapel was built. According to the traditional custom, the Fashinadis piled up stones for centuries, sinking dilapidated boats and ships, so the surface of the island increased over time. Today, the island has an area of ​​over 3,000 square meters and the church of Gospa od Skrpjela is located on it. The church was built in 1630 by the Venetians. In the church, there is a tapestry that Jacinita Kunić wove from 1803 until 1828, waiting for her sailor husband to return to her. She also wove parts of her hair into the tapestry.
  • Blue Cave - Blue Cave is one of the most beautiful and largest caves in a series, located along the thinned coast on the Luštica peninsula in Boka. The cave is located between Zlatna luka bay and Cape Mokra gora. It is 5.7 nautical miles away from Herceg Novi. It has two large openings at an angle of 45 degrees, the smaller one is on the south side, while the larger one is on the southwest side. Ordinary boats and smaller ships can enter the cave. The depth of the sea inside the cave is 3 to 4 m. It got its name from the unusual color of the sea, a crystal blue color that is caused by the reflection of sunlight from its surface during sunny days. It is possible to visit the cave with a guide.
  • St. Ivan's Fortress - The most beautiful fortification that was built in the Illyrian era is located near Kotor. The fortress defends the city on the eastern side, and behind it is the Lovćen mountain massif. Large walls stretch up to the fortress. The fortress had the power of unlimited defense of Kotor even against more powerful enemies. One such example is the clash with 300 Turkish ships that remained at the bottom of the sea. The fortress was damaged during the earthquake in 1979, but the walls are well preserved to this day. In addition to the fortress, there is also a small church dedicated to St. John on the top of the mountain. The place is open to tourists, and it is reached by a narrow, steep road consisting of about 1400 steps. The climb takes about an hour and requires a lot of strength and endurance. We recommend that you bring plenty of drinking water and wear comfortable shoes. The time and effort you invest will pay off at the very top with an incredible view of the entire Boka Kotor bay.
