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 towns in Europe and has survived many regimes and natural disasters. As you enter the town, you see a plaque with these words inscribed describing the history and attitude of the town. Translated version, “What belongs to others we don’t want, what is ours we will never surrender” – President Tito of Yugoslavia.
We were told that the Kotor Winter “Karneval” has been celebrated now for over a century. It’s celebrated each year during the last week of February. The festivities include a masquerade ball, concerts, children’s activities, a parade, traditional costumes and tastings of local cuisine.
We arrived in Tivat just in time for lunch. Nothing better than having a picnic overlooking the Bay on a nice sunny day. La p’tite nappe champêtre fits right in, matching up with the blue hues of the bay.
