DOBROTA is a village in the municipality of Kotor, located in the immediate vicinity to the old town of Kotor. Dobrota is a captain's and fishermen’s village, with wonderful beaches and a long promenade along the coast. It extends from the old town of Kotor to the village of Ljuta.
This settlement was first mentioned in the 13th century. In the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Dobrota had the largest number of ships in Boka and gained the status of “captain’s city” in the eighteenth century. During this golden period, numerous palaces were built along the coast. Those were the palaces of noble captains' families, such as: Dabinović, Tripković and Ivanović. There are four significant churches in Dobrota: the church of St. Eustachia, Church of St. Elijah, Our Lady of Mercy Church and St. Matthias Church.
