“… covered with the sky like blue silk, you are more beautiful than your seaside fairy and brighter than her necklace ….” – Aleksa Santic
“Amphitheater made of stone and sea” – Franjo Alfirević
Their words captivated the contrast of the blue sea, rough, gray, steep mountains, but also mild, green hills. Above the blue sky the colors along with the sea change from yellow mimosa, over red and white camellia to magnolia flower and indigenous oleander.
All those colors and the contrasts of nature, but people as well create the Bay of Kotor – along the coast, cities surrounded by mighty walls, on the slopes of hills old villages, bell towers, paths, fortifications, islands on the sea, and holy places on them.
