About this Item

Postcard written October 28, 1900 and postmarked two days later, was sent from Prague to Cattaro in 1900. Cattaro is the Italian name. It is also known as Kotor and is a coastal town in Montenegro. On the photo side of the postcard, on top, is the phrase "Welcome to Kral. Vinohradu!" in Slovenian. On the bottom of the photo it says ZIdovska modliteban, which means Jewish Chapel in Czech. Vinohrady means "vineyards." Kralovske Vinohrady (German: Konigliche Weinberge) is a cadastral district in Prague. Kotor is located in a secluded part of the Gulf of Kotor. The city has a population of 13,510 and is the administrative center of the municipality. The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by fortifications built during the Venetian period. It is located on the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska), one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. Some have called the southern-most fjord in Europe, but it is a ria, a submerged river canyon. Together with the nearly overhanging limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lov¿en, Kotor and its surrounding area form an impressive and picturesque Mediterranean landscape. Kotor is part of the World Heritage Site dubbed the Natural and Culturo-Historical Region of Kotor. Kotor, first mentioned in 168 BC, was settled during Ancient Roman times, when it was known as Acruvium, Ascrivium, or Ascruvium and was part of the Roman province of Dalmatia. Kotor has been fortified since the early Middle Ages, when Emperor Justinian built a fortress above Acruvium in 535, after expelling the Ostrogoths; a second town probably grew up on the heights round it, for Constantine Porphyrogenitus, in the 10th century, alludes to Lower Kotor. The city was plundered by the Saracens in 840. Kotor was one of the more influential Dalmatian city-states of romanized Illyrians throughout the Middle Ages, and until the 11th century the Dalmatian language was spoken in Kotor. Four centuries of Venetian domination have given the city the typical Venetian architecture, that contributed to make Kotor a UNESCO world heritage site. In those centuries Renaissance-related literature enjoyed a huge development in Kotor: the most famous writers were Bernardo Pima, Nicola Chierlo, Luca Bisanti, Alberto de Gliricis, Domenico and Vincenzo Burchia, Vincenzo Ceci, Antonio Zambella and Francesco Morandi. In the 14th- and 15th centuries, there was an influx of settlers from the oblasts of Trebinje (the region around forts Klobuk Ledenica and Rudina) and the Hum lands (Gacko and Dabar) to Kotor. While under Venetian rule, Kotor was besieged by the Ottoman Empire in 1538 and 1657, endured the plague in 157. In the mid-1800s the city had a mixed population of 1/3 Serbians, 1/3 Croats and 1/3 Italians. Since then the Italians have nearly disappeared, and now the majority is made by "Montenegrins". The municipality actually has a population of 22,947 (2003 census). The town of Kotor itself has 5,341 inhabitants, but Kotor and Dobrota are practically one town, with a combined population of 13,176. Bookseller Inventory # 005995
