The visit to Perast started with firefighters busy with burning waste.

The town is small, but very beautiful.

Church of our Lady is built on artificial island. In the beginning it was the place to sink pirate ships, later there was a law for every ship passing by to drop a stone over there. By the way, even nowadays people still drop stones, however it's done in a special holiday. It's not just tradition, it also helps to prevent island washing by the sea.

If you like hiking there is a steep stairs up to the fortress. Though be patient. It took 40 minutes only up for me.

There are many musicians in Old town almost at any time. I was there at late night and early in the morning. They're already there.

The way from Kotor to Lovcen. The viewpoint is much higher. Fortunately it is possible to get here by car :)

The way up is so steep that many drivers put stones under the wheels. By the way, the road was awful. Well there are two ways: serpentine and a long way (which is 40km longer). Unfortunately the way with serpentine is under construction this year (and there was no prior signs). So I had to go offroad a part of my way. I even though that the car won't make it.

Stairs to mausoleum. 55 sections.

There should to be a church and a grave of last religious ruler of Montenegro, not a mausoleum. It even was this way recently. But in 1950s Yugoslavian government decided the other way around, crashed everything and built a completely new building. The people didn't like that decision, but who cares?
