The Boka Bay (Montenegrin: Boka Kotorska; in Italian Bocche di Cattaro), is situated in southwestern Montenegro. The picturesque towns of Tivat, Kotor, Perast, Risan, Prcanj and Herceg Novi with their natural surroundings are the most interesting tourist attractions.

Boka Kotorska is one of the most important tourist attractions in Montenegro. It is a region surrounding one of the grandest natural features of east Adriatic – Gulf of Kotor, a series of four bays penetrating 25 km inland. Sailing in from the open sea, one first comes across the Herceg Novi bay with mountain Orijen above it, than through Kumbor straits to the Tivat bay. Through Verige, the narrowest point of the Gulf, one sees the bay of Risan to the north and the long bay of Kotor to the south, both surrounded with mountains and ending with the historic town of Kotor nested directly below the steep side of mountain Lovcen.

Small towns with baroque mansions erected by sea captains and villages with stone houses dot the sides of the Bay – Perast, Prcanj, Dobrota, Topla, Orahovac, Risan, Morinj, Herceg Novi.
