and at the moment the seaports of Montenegro have already received 21 ships, of which 10 were cruise liners

, who sailed to Montenegro on a cruise ship, told the information portal RTCG (Radio and Television of Montenegro) about how he visited the Montenegrin Old town of Kotor
and that he was delighted with this ancient city located in the heart of Kotor Bay. "This is a wonderful place! I was especially fascinated by the fact that there is clean here and many old buildings that are in very good condition", - he said.Tourists from Canada, Joe and Gale
, were on an excursion, heard the story of a guide about Kotor and were impressed by its history, ancient traditions, local customs and the beauty of the Old City, which is protected by UNESCO. "Our country is quite young, and when we get so much information and interesting historical facts about other cities and countries of the world that existed several centuries ago, they simply start to fascinate you," Joe said. Gail also noted that she just fell in love with the appearance of the main square in the Old Town of Kotor and she really liked that there were many local tiny cafes and bars in which you wer expected and served as if you were a regular guest.
