Kotor, Montenegro

Jun 07, 2019 - Sea Cloud


We had an unbelievable moment when Sea Cloud passed the entrance of Boka Kotorska (Bocche di Cattaro during the Venetian domination) and began to move along the deep fjord of Kotor. We’d just entered in another nation: Montenegro, a former province of the great Yugoslavia, which broke apart in the’90s. The water was so calm it seemed we were sailing on a lake until Sea Cloud docked at the UNESCO site of Kotor, our official entry for learning a different part of Mediterranean history. Another complex and fascinating story of this part of the world.
