MONTENEGRO | 08 KOTOR : Sebening Pagi Kotor - Part 02

Masih lagi di Kotor. Menghabiskan sisa sisa waktu yang ada yang dah tak banyak ni.

Area Port of Kotor

Banyak kapal kapal pesiar berlabuh di sini.

Kalau time pagi boleh tengok orang memancing. Ada yang betulkan bot. Ada jugak yang jogging di kawasan ni.

Suasananya memang aman dan tenang !

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. Sveti Đorđe and Gospa od Škrpijela islets off the coast of Perast are also among the tourism destinations in the vicinity of Kotor.

Waktu pagi di Kotor juga agak sibuk ketika para peniaga di pasar berdekatan mula memunggah stok untuk jualan. Mostly mereka menjual buah buahan dan sayuran.






Dah abis usha orang meniaga, masa untuk balik ke Oldtown atau dikenali sebagai Stari Grad sebelum berkemas kemas.

Aku ada kurang dari 2 jam sebelum naik bas nanti.

Sea Gate of 1555, main entrance to Old Town. Ada 3 entrances di sini. 

Ada kerusi besar tempat orang bergambar. Sempat jugak orang mintak bantuan suruh ambikkan gambar.

Map of Kotor. Kalau area Oldtown tu buleh jalan kaki je.

The Stari Grad is fully walled (the mountain functions as a rear wall). Four gates offer access to the town: The Main Gate, along the Bay, the North Gate, the South Gate, and a smaller New Gate. There are no cars allowed in the Stari Grad, nor are there standard road names in the Stari Grad. Although all buildings are numbered, it is best to use landmarks for directions. Generally, the squares are named for the church in their center, and directions either relate to the closest square or the closest gate. The most obvious landmark is the clock tower, just inside the main gate, in the main square.

There are abundant banks and ATMs throughout the Stari Grad. ATMs often dispense as few bills as possible. For example, a withdrawal of €150 will probably produce 3 €50 bills. Many people refuse to make change from large bills, so it is advised to withdraw an even amount, to avoid €50 bills, or small amounts at a time. Banks are closed on Sunday or Holidays. Travellers cheques are generally not accepted, not even by banks. Note that not all restaurants or shops accept credit cards, either.

Kotor and the entire Kotor Bay have long been a vacation and second-home destination for many Europeans and British. After Serbian, English is the common language, and most waitstaff and hotel staff speak English.

The Arm Square

"The Arms Square" is the main and the largest town square in Kotor, Montenegro. 

It hosts several stores, banks, cafés, bakeries and pastry shops, as well as many important cultural-historical monuments. Its name hails from Venetian times, when munitions were made and stored here.

The Clock Tower

The Clock Tower was built in the 17th century. It was built partly in Baroque style, while the northern and eastern facades were built in Gothic style.

A reconstructed medieval pillory stands in front of the tower.

Jalan ke bas terminal

15 minit jalan kaki.. Sampai

Tepat pada masanya, bas bergerak tak lama selepas aku tiba. Perjalanan menuju ke destinasi seterusnya dan merentas sempadan negara Croatia.

Bas menyusuri laluan jalanraya dan melintasi Bay of Kotor. 



Satu pengalaman yang menarik bila mana, bas yang aku naik, akan menyeberang Bay of Kotor ni menggunakan ferry.



The Bay of Kotor (Montenegrin: Boka Kotorska) is a region of Montenegro. The bay, the city of Kotor and the surrounding territory are a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Bay of Kotor consists of four smaller gulfs - gulf of Herceg Novi, gulf of Tivat, gulf of Risan, and gulf of Kotor. The gulfs of Herceg Novi and Tivat are connected via the Kumbor strait, while the extremely narrow Verige strait connects the gulf of Tivat with the gulfs of Risan and Kotor. The total area equals 88 square kilometres. The gulf of Herceq Novi empties into the Adriatic Sea.

Due to its unusual look, the bay is often called Europe's southernmost fjord, but in fact it's a submerged river canyon.

The territory surrounding the bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska) is divided into 3 municipalities: Kotor, Herceg Novi and Tivat. It's a multiethnic region, with a Serbian majority in the municipalities of Herceg Novi and Tivat, a Montenegrin majority in Kotor, and a sizeable Croatian minority in Kotor and Tivat.





Dan perjalanan di teruskan lagi menuju Dubrovnik, Croatia...
