We start the day by driving to Perast, a small town with only 350 inhabitants. The city was under the rule of the Republic of Venice from 1420 to 1797. the town has 19 churches and 17 palaces. This is a city of steep stone streets, flower shops, churches, closed windows, incredible the islands of St. George and Our Lady of the rock the city of legends, sailors and famous captains.

We continue our journey with a fast and picturesque boat ride to the most important sanctuary of Boka Kotorska. The unusual church of Our Lady of the rocks in the Byzantine style presents your eyes with beautiful works of art and tapestries. The original church was built in 1452 and was extensively renovated after a pirate attack in 1624.
Legend has it that the island was built by generations of sailors who deposited stones in the bay after each successful sea voyage. Our Lady of the rock became the patroness of all Bokeles sailors who would go on long journeys.
Still, tourists visit the island primarily for one specific tapestry, a work from 1828. This is a tapestry made by a girl Hacinta Kunic, who waited 25 years for a sailor to come back from the sea. She used silk, gold, and silver as main materials, and when she ran out of them, she used her own hair. The tapestry is made with incredible attention to detail, there are approx—650 needle stitches per square meter. Whether the sailor returned or not, we will never know, but at the end of her work, Jacinta remained blind. She gave the tapestry to the island Our Lady of the Rocks as a gif
Let's continue the excursion around Boka via the ferry (a boat ride that will last ten minutes), after that, we will pass through the city of Tivat, where we will not stop, but we will see it from the car.On the way to Budva, we stop to capture the moment with a photo break at Vidikovac of Budva where you can see the amazing view of the city of Budva.Budva is capital of Montenegin turism. This city is the most popular tourist destination in the country and boasts excellent beaches as well as a lovely, walled city center. The old city center is picturesquely located on a rather small peninsula, and its narrow, winding streets hide a multitude of historic buildings, churches, and small squares that will amaze you. Among the most interesting monuments here is the Church of Saint John from the 7th century, Saint Mary of Punt from the 8th century, and the Church of Saint Sava from the 12th century. The medieval city fortress is called the Citadel, and right next to it is the picturesque Church of the Holy Trinity, built-in 1804.
The most famous authentic legend about the foundation of Budva was told by Stefan the Byzantine (6th c.) who reported the statements by Philon of Biblos from the second century AD, and it is related to a mythical character Cadmus, a hero from Boeotia and founder of the town of Thebes, the son of the Phoenician king Agenor and queen Telefasa.Cadmus left his homeland in order to find his sister Europa who had been carried off by Zeus. Unsuccessful, he consulted the Delphic oracle, which ordered him to give up his quest, follow a cow, and build a town on the spot where she lay down. The cow guided him to Boeotia (Cow Land), where he founded the well-known city of Thebes, which he was ruling for many years. Gods gave him as a wife Harmonia, daughter of the divinities Ares and Aphrodite.In their old age, Cadmus and Harmonia were expelled from Thebes, and on an oxen-drawn carriage came to the land of Encheleae (Enchelleae), where they founded a new town – Budva (Bouthoe).According to the legend, the name of Budva derived from the Greek word for oxen (in Greek language: bous – oxen).It was prophesied that Encheleae (Enchelleae) would defeat their neighbours, the Illyrians, if they chose Cadmus as their leader. After doing so, led by Cadmus, they defeated the Illyrians and assumed control over their land.
