Relaxing Rose

The lovely town of Rose is an old settlement located at the entrance to the Bay of Kotor, on the Luštica peninsula.

It is considered to be the oldest port in the Bay of Kotor, where ships stocked up with food and other necessities.

Rose is a typically Mediterranean village with impressive stone houses lined along the pretty seafront. Many of them were captain’s houses.

Rose used to be the old Greek settlement Punto Roza which was destroyed by Saracens in 867.

During the Venetian empire, ships were required to quarantine in Rose to prevent the spread of the plague.

There’s also a stunning beach at Rose and we can’t resist a dip in the sparkling turquoise waters.
