Mar­itime Mu­seum of Mon­tene­gro: Sit­u­ated within a Baroque palace, this fas­ci­nat­ing mu­seum dis­plays the scars of Ko­tor’s naval past. An au­dio­gu­ide helps ex­plain the col­lec­tion of nau­ti­cal maps, uni­forms, town plans, weapons and mod­els of ships. On the sec­ond floor, there is also a fas­ci­nat­ing ex­hi­bi­tion about the re­gion’s role in both world wars. See: www.mu­se­um­mar­iti­mum.com

St Luke’s Church: Con­structed in 1195, this tiny church in Ko­tor’s old town fea­tures a Catholic and Ortho­dox al­tar side-by-side, sym­bol­is­ing the co­ex­is­tence of re­li­gions in the re­gion. Don’t miss the tra­di­tional cob­blers around the cor­ner, where you can see opanci (Balkan peas­ant shoes) be­ing crafted. See more: www.visit-mon­tene­gro.com

Palazzo Drusko: This 600-yearold stone house of­fers spa­cious rooms, in­di­vid­u­ally dec­o­rated with an­tique fur­ni­ture, and the perfect lo­ca­tion for ex­plor­ing Ko­tor’s old town. All rooms fea­ture air­con­di­tion­ing and free WiFi. Owner Danilo is happy to ar­range tours via 360 Monte, where you can visit Lovćen Na­tional Park and the Nje­goš Mau­soleum.

Stari Mlini Restau­rant: Lo­cated on the road be­tween Perast and Ko­tor, this 17th-cen­tury flour mill of­fers a va­ri­ety of seafood. The old mill boasts stone bridges, trout pools and gor­geous bay views, cre­at­ing an achingly at­mo­spheric set­ting to en­joy your food. See: www.starim­lini.com
