Its long history can be seen on every corner of its Old Town, shaped by the influence of many different empires. It was part of the Roman empire, Byzantine, settlement of Slav tribes and their first countries. Venice influenced the city for more than 400 years, and Austro-Hungary till its fall. In addition it is one of the few areas in this part of the Balkan region that was never occupied by the Ottoman empire.
The Old Town of Kotor with its fortifications, Perast, and Our lady of the rocks, has been an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. This is due to its gorgeous, well-preserved architecture and seamless integration of the town with the sweeping landscape. Moreover it has a unique mixture of different cultures.
