Perast, Bay of Kotor, Serbia

This remarkable city was known in the late medieval times to be one of the most succesful city republics in the Adriatic, along with Venice, Dubrovnik and Kotor. On the far right side you can see the islands of St Nicholas and Our Lady of Rocks, both built in 15th century, on the place where, according to the legend, the icon of Virgin Mary was found floating at the surface of the sea. Bay of Cotor is one of the fines natural bay harbours, and certainly one of the most beautiful ones of that kind in the Mediterranean.
