Pearls of Boka Bay, Perast and Kotor, in 4 hours guided tour including boat to the only artificial island into the Adriatic Sea and its museum and church Our Lady of the Rocks.
We start the tour with a short drive along the Boka bay shore toward Perast town.
The little town of Perast is situated at the foot of St. Elijah Hill, opposite the narrow Verige strait, where the innermost bays of Risan and Kotor converge. This easternmost shore of Montenegro was the earliest inhabited area in the Boka bay.
Right in front of the town, there are two beautiful islets: St. George and Our Lady of the Rocks, each with a picturesque chapel.
As an only artificially island in the Adriatic Sea, the island of Our Lady of the Rocks (Gospa od Skrpjela) is the star of this place. According to a legend, the island was made over the centuries by local sailors who kept an ancient oath after finding the icon of Madonna and Child on the reef in the sea in 15 century.
In the near vicinity of the Our Lady of the Rocks island which people ascended from the sea, lies Saint George Island (Sveti Djordje), the island of completely different nature and destiny. Surrounded by rocky walls and hidden by high cypress canopy, this island seems to hide a secret and does not allow curious eyes to disturb its rather uncanny peace...
After visiting the town of Perast, we return to visit the old town of Kotor.
Kotor old town is a medieval town with a history dating from over 1000 years B.C.
