Bay of Kotor

(UNESCO: Natural and Culturo-Historical Region of Kotor) In the Middle Ages, this natural harbour on the Adriatic coast in Montenegro was an important artistic and commercial centre with its own famous schools of masonry and iconography. A large number of the monuments (including four Romanesque churches and the town walls) were seriously damaged by the 1979 earthquake but the town has been restored, largely with UNESCO’s help. © UNESCO World Heritage Centre.
