Island St George in Bay of Kotor, Montenegro

Arnold Böcklin: Island of the Dead

This is the evidence that Arnold Böcklin visited Montenegro, or maybe received the postcard from the Bay of Kotor, where the famous island of the dead resides in front of the city of Perast.
Two islands mark this part of the bay, St George is the island graveyard, where prominent locals were buried. Madonna of the Rock is the man made island, with unique history and biggers collection of votive silver plates in the world.
