LJUTA is a very small fishermen village in Boka Kotorska. It is located between Kotor and Perast and lies on the river Ljuta, which springs from the mountain above the bay. Ljuta is known for its beautiful stone houses and palaces, as well as small sandy beaches.
Each stone palace in Ljuta is made of white stone, which has not been destroyed or damaged over time, and in its appearance this small town resembles Perast.
Houses and palaces date back to the 17th and 18th century, when the Bay of Kotor was ruled by the Venetian Republic. Ljuta is a perfect place for young couples and families, so it is a perfect place to relax away from urban nightlife and crowdy beaches.
About 20 people live in this small town today.
In the center of Ljuta there is a small church of St. Peter, built in a Baroque style of white stone, which diligent sailors brought from the island of Korcula, Croatia.
The church was built in 1700. Inside there are three marble altars, made by Venetian masters.
In Ljuta there are 3 large sandy beaches and the entrance is FREE OF CHARGE.
One of the most famous restaurants in Montenegro is right here in Ljuta. The restaurant is called "Stari Mlini", also known as a place for all senses. The restaurant is located near the river Ljuta, where visitors can enjoy national cuisine and seafood, in an old stone house or along the river and the seaside. Just note that the prices at this restaurant are higher than in other restaurants in Boka.
Interesting fact: during winter seasons, when there is a large amount of rainfall in Boka, the river Ljuta floods the bridge and the surrounding area.
A large amount of water from the hill flows into the sea, where over time a small river island was made. Since river Ljuta is very fast and furious in winter, an entire village was named after it.
