If you would like to explore one of Europe’s most daring natural creations, where the sea shamelessly penetrated the mountainous region, you should head to the southern coast of the Adriatic Sea, to Montenegro.The Boka Bay, also known as “Bride of the Adriatic”, is a one of a kind geological formation, comparable (although not exactly in the same way) to the Norwegian fiords.According to a legend, the construction started in 1452, when stranded sailors found an icon of the Virgin Mary on the rock that was the cause of their stranding.Along the 104 kilometers (64 miles) long coastline, various interesting and picturesque settlements had risen; interesting legends and turbulent history are attached to almost each one of them.It isn’t uncommon during early spring to have blooming of the flowers along the coastline while the mountainous peaks are still covered with snow.
Make sure to enter the Our Lady of Rocks Church, featuring a spectacular interior.
So, if you would like to lay your eyes on a truly exceptional attraction, but wouldn’t like to catch a cold in Norway, the Boka Bay is a worthy substitution.
The Boka Bay is a symbiosis of a couple of bays and gorges, encircled by wooded mountains to the south (conditionally speaking) and mountains with sparse vegetation to the north.
To familiarize yourselves more thoroughly with Boka Bay’s history, head to the Maritime Museum.
