Join local expert Dragana Mušikić to explore Montenegro and the city of Kotor. Rich cultural heritage, breathtaking views, and centuries of history await us as we visit this tiny Mediterranean nation.

Although the recorded history of Montenegro reaches back to the sixth century BC, it has only recently been discovered as a tourist destination. Kotor, on the picturesque Adriatic coast, is Montenegro’s most beautiful city. Compact and ideally situated, the old town is bustling with narrow streets, old squares, and centuries of memories. The cathedral of St. Tryphon and the church of St. Luca, both built in a Romanesque style, are symbols of the city. We’ll explore their architecture and historical significance.

Led by local expert Dragana Mušikić, this conversation will introduce you to Montenegro and it’s most beautiful city, Kotor. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with increased knowledge about the local history through the centuries as well as and understanding of modern life in Montenegro.

Dragana Mušikić is a gallery owner and tour guide living in Kotor, Montenegro. She holds a Masters degree in Economics and Services and a licence for tour guiding, issued by the Goverment of Montenegro.

Montenegro

Dragon was very sweet and you could easily sense her love for her home city. She certainly showed us the highlights for the tiny town of Kotor. Unfortunately her timing wasn't great and the seminar was over in 45 minutes, She could have included sights in other parts of Montenegro, spoken about places to stay and eat, etc.

Interesting Introduction to Kotor

Very good overview of Kotor, main sites and places to see. I would like to hear a bit more on the history and the period of Venetian rule.

Not enough content/history!

A charming presenter and lovely visuals, but there just wasn't enough depth of content to this presentation. It was a nice way to whet one's appetite perhaps (like a segment on a travel show) but needs a lot more background and historical context to be really interesting.
I hope the speaker can develop it into something more engaging in the future.
