Coming into Kotor Photo, Kotor, Montenegro

As you walk in a semi circle around the bay of Kotor and its sparkling waters you will hear lots of car honking and general chaos. A lot of police patrol the harbour front and they are quite interesting to scrutinise. They wear those wide peak caps like the cops in San Fransisco and I did notice that their gait was an extremely lazy one. I remember being very hot and sitting on a bench in the shade across from the marina and just finding the police patrols comical. It was like something out of Top Cat and talking of Top Cat they have those old fashioned tin bins in Kotor like Top Cat and his pals used to scrounge in for tit bits. Across from the marina you will see many different ent...Read More

La Pasteria

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A Taste of Italy in St Tryphon's Square"

Quote:
La Pasteria is an Italian restaurant which sits in St Tryphon's Square opposite the cathedral. You can't miss the sun-kissed stoney facade of the building as outside on the terrace are many tables filled with tourists and backpackers. On the cobbled terrace stands a handwritten board displaying scrumptious meals of pasta, meat dishes, lepinja (bread sandwiches), fish and seafood dishes and pizzas of every variety. If this menu doesn't tempt you inside then I am sure the charming lighting and ambience will.On a clear, warm sunny summer's day I should think the views from the terrace are fascinating but the evening we arived at the restaurant was a cold and damp one so we went inside to get...Read More

I knew nothing about the bay of Kotor until I received a postcard from my son saying that he had visited this medieval town in Montenegro and he thought it was really strange because the bay was actually a fjord. I was fascinated with the picture on the postcard which was an aerial shot of the closed town and the fjord.I vaguely remember reading somewhere that Montenegro was once very fashionable with film stars in the 60's and Sveti Stefan was the place to go.So the last time my husband and I visited Korcula in Croatia we decided to take a couple of days out and visit this strange place. We caught a bus from Orebic to Dubrovnik and stayed in the old town overnight so we could catch the e...Read More

Hotel | "A Quaint Hotel Next to a Franciscan Church"

Quote:
After spending a couple of hours or more in Kotor trying to find private rooms which turned out to be an unsatisfactory experience we visited the kind lady in the travel agents in the old town who pointed us in the direction of the Hotel Marija.The Hotel Marija is a small hotel situated in the old town of Kotor. The beautiful stone building which was once a private mansion where the Emperor Franz Joseph resided shares the space in the cobbled square with an ornate Franciscan church and its melodic if somewhat deafening bells.As we entered the lobby of the hotel I was quite impressed with the immediate cosiness of the building. Inside the lobby is a reception desk where you sig...Read More
