Kotor description

Some have called it the southern-most fjord in Europe, but it is a ria, a submerged river canyon. Together with the nearly overhanging limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lovćen, Kotor and its surrounding area form an impressive landscape.

The fortified city of Kotor is included in UNESCO's World Heritage Site list as part of Venetian Works of Defence.

Kotor was first mentioned in 168 BC, which is the Roman era, and was known as Acruvium, Ascrivium, or Ascruvium and was part of the Roman province of Dalmatia. The town has been fortified since the early Middle Ages, when Emperor Justinian built a fortress above Ascrivium. It was one of the more influential Dalmatian city-states of romanized Illyrians throughout the early Middle Ages, and until the 11th century the Dalmatian language was still spoken in Kotor. The city was part of Byzantine Dalmatia in that period, and the modern name of Kotor probably originated in the Byzantine name for the town: Dekatera or Dekaderon.

Kotor was the most important trading port of Kingdom of Serbia and Serbian Empire. The city was part of the Venetian Albania province of the Venetian Republic from 1420 to 1797. Four centuries of Venetian domination have given the city the typical Venetian architecture, that contributes to make Kotor a UNESCO world heritage site.

Kotor has one of the best preserved medieval old towns in the Adriatic and is a UNESCO world heritage site. It is home to numerous sights, such as the Cathedral of Saint Tryphon in the old town (built in 1166), and the ancient walls which stretch for 4.5 km (3 mi) directly above the city.

Kotor has a large population of cats that have become a symbol of the city. The city has several cat stores and a cat museum, as well as the Cats' Square (Trg od mačaka). Water and food is left throughout the city for the cats to feed on, and cardboard boxes are often arranged to be a place for the cats to sleep in.

Interesting, Kotor is a twin town with Santa Barbara (California, United States).
