Life inside the walls.

The old fortified town of Kotor is on the UNESCO world heritage list. We’ve learned that this old town is one of the most well-preserved old towns in Europe and has survived many regimes and natural disasters. As you enter the town, you see a plaque with these words inscribed that describe the history and attitude of the town, it’s translation “What belongs to others we don’t want, what is ours we will never surrender” – President Tito of Yugoslavia.
