Kotor is located in south-east part of Kotor Bay, at the foot of the mountain Lovćen. The old part of the city was developed on the small area in the triangular shape; it is partitioned by city walls that stretch to the fortress of Saint Ivan at height of 260 meters. The city is surrounded by two walls which are almost five kilometers long, and 20 meters high. There are 1,426 steps from the city to the fortress.
The narrowest street in the world can be found in Kotor, it is called „Let me pass“ – two persons can barely pass eachother there.
The city was founded in 5th century AD under the Byzantine rule and it was called Catarum. Thanks to the help of Russian and Montenegrin troops, the long battle against Turkish and French influence ended in independence of the city that lasted for many years. Only in 1814 (until 1918) did the city fall under the Austria-Hungary rule.
Kotor is the center of seamanship, culture, education and, finally, tourism.
