Aug 24, 2014 Dubrovnik • Optional Montenegro tour


Today, we joined a full-day optional ttrip to Montenegro (Black Mountain), a republic whose roots go back to the eleventh century and which
declared its independence in 2006. About the size of Connecticut, Montenegro is set apart from its geopolitical neighbors by never having been
conquered by the Ottoman Turks.
The country is blessed with remarkable natural beauty, from rugged mountain ranges to long, unbroken stretches of beach on the Adriatic.

We discovered Kator on a city tour, including a visit to the Maritime Museum.  Beginning in the 14th century, Kotor was part of the Venetian
Republic, and four centuries of Venetian influence have left a lasting impression on the city’s architecture and spirit. Kotor's narrow, criss-crossed
streets and numerous public squares are a delight, and its secluded location, beautiful bay, and mountainous backdrop make a dramatic
impression. We had lunch in Kotor.
 
 
 
 
今天參加全天的 optional trip, 早上七點四十五就出發了,要出國界,
這個地方有點像我們昨天去的 old town, 有城牆,地陪先帶我們去看了幾個城內的 museum, 然後去吃午飯。
午飯後自由活動,我們在老城內穿來穿去走了一通,想上城牆上去玩,因為在城牆上可以一直爬到半山上的教堂去,
但沒有找到入口,然後到城外的碼頭邊逛了一陣子,下午三點二十分大家集合坐車回去。
回程時在關口被耽誤了一陣子,過關時護照要檢查蓋章。
回到旅館已近晚上八點鐘,整天玩得很累。
