Kotor Fjord in Montenegro

The Kotor Fjord Area

The Bokar-Kotor fjord is Europe’s most southerly fjord and is an impressive geographic and historic area stretching about 25 km inland.

It has a unique topography of dramatic karst mountains which drop sharply down into warm and clear Adriatic waters. Numerous historic towns, forts, churches, monasteries and other buildings, particularly dating from the 400-year Venetian occupation of the strategically important waterway, are to be found all around the fjord.

The most notable nearby places to visit are Kotor Old Town, Perast (renaissance citadel), Herzeg Novi (Spanish, Turkish and Austro Hungarian buildings), Tivat (New Porto Montenegro and Illyrian founded settlement) and Risan (Roman Mosaics). Visiting these places by car is a pleasant experience, but a more leisurely way of visiting the fjord is by boat! In most of these places there is a lively night life and plenty of restaurants, stylish boutique and shops, as well as late night bars and cafes. Apart from impressive baroque, classical and gothic architectural gems, there is also significant Austro-Hungarian and communist era architecture in the area. Going back in time, significant remains dating from the pre-Slavic Illyrian inhabitants of the Balkan peninsula can also be found around the fjord.

A suggested itinerary is to take a leisurely drive around the fjord starting at Tivat and finishing at Kotor, stopping at the many towns along the way.. Bring a towel and go for a swim at one of the many beaches on the fjord.

Warm welcome from the Owner

Fabian Dittrich, is the proud owner of the Lustica Mill House on the Lustica peninsula. He acquired the house from the previous owner Jas who bought the house while working in tourism in Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, and Bosnia between 2000 and 2006.

For someone who was quite familiar with the Eastern Adriatic coast, he was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon (Lustica) an area that had not been taken over by large scale tourism, while, at the same time, was located near to two international airports (at Tivat & Dubrovnik); close to the many clean beaches and a beautiful largely untouched natural environment; as well as near to the historic attractions and amenities at Kotor, Dubrovnik Budva and Tivat.

The house was fully renovated - keeping the old mill in the same place it had once ground olives for centuries - with the help of Tivat based architects, Axum Architects, and combining sensitive restoration with modern facilities. The house was tastefully decorated using genuine furnishings and bright materials from Nepal in Asia.

We hope you have an opportunity to enjoy the Olive Mil House and the Lustica surroundings as many of our guests have before...
