Kotor, greetings from friends' holiday

I am always grateful to Postcrossing, from which I can meet new friends and share with each other our lives and cultures. The two postcards shown this time were sent from my Polish and Serbian friends, Agnieszka and Jovana when they had holidays in Montenegro respectively. Actually it is already appreciated that they were still thinking of me when enjoying the wonderful times, not to mention that the cards came from Kotor, an amazing old mediterranean port in a secluded part of the Gulf of Kotor on the Adriatic Sea. Thank you so much my friends for these precious postcards, in fact they are my first two from Montenegro! :) Kotor is a part of World Heritage Site "Natural and Culturo-Historical Region of Kotor" inscribed in 1979 by UNESCO.


The one sent by Agnieszka features one of the symbols of Kotor, the Clock Tower , which occupies the central place in the square opposite the main gate. I can feel the peaceful old town from the postcard! Have you noticed a postcard shelf on it ? Mayebe Agnieszka brought many cards from there?! :) She wrote on the card that she feels it is a "town of cats", because she saw "a lots of cats basking up the sunshine in the haze of narrow streets". She also climbed above a town where is the beautiful view of the Bay of Kotor. Thanking again Agnieszka for sharing with me the interesting and unforgettable memory! The stamps are definitives issued in 2008 devoted to "Montenegro encounters Europe".

Jovana chose a card of different style shows some face of people in the town. I like to see local inhabitant from postcards too. :) Thank you again Jovana! The stamp was issued in 2010 for the "Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics".
