Perast - Front Row Seating at the Harbour, Bay of Kotor

Bay of Kotor | Boka Kotorska from Perast Harbour - Perast, Montenegro.


Shot at dawn just after 5 a.m. on a cloudy yet beautiful morning, when the sleepy town of Perast still safely tucked in their beds. All except for one of course. The town of Perast is so small, population of about 300, that I felt like everyone seemed to know that there was a photographer in town. And I was happy to have been part of their home even just for a while.


Perast, an old Baroque town in Montenegro, lies at the foothills of St. Elijah on a cape that separates the Bay of Risano from that of Kotor, and overlooks the narrowest part of the bay of Kotor - the Verige strait. Perast was owned by the Republic of Venice between 1420 and 1797. The city has 16 Baroque palaces, 17 Catholic churches and 2 Orthodox churches. It is most visited for its two small islands: St. George and Our Lady of the Rock. The City of Perast has a population of only over 300.
