Kotor, Montenegro

An all-night sail brought us to Montenegro, but it was so windy that we could not dock until afternoon the day we arrived.
We had only intermittent sun, but the weather can spoil this charming town.
Kotor's 1555 Sea Gate:

You can see why it's called 'Montenegro,' Black Mountain in the Venetian language of the time. The country rises almost straight up from the coast.
