While this isn't the prettiest museum you'll ever go to (a basic steel structure with roof covering an archeological dig) it does include five beautiful mosaics from a Roman villa which stood on the spot in the 2nd century AD. The mosaics have been cleaned...More

If you are in the area, this small museum built over the site of a former villa is worth a quick look. The price is currently 3€ per person. There are 4-5 mosaics to see, the most famous showing an image of Hypnos, but these...More

The place is pretty small but there is quite a bit of information written and mosaics were very beautiful. I would also recommend walking down Gabela Street since it's not too far away, there is a picture of it on "Residing in Queen Teuta's city"...More

I stumbled upon this historic treasure in the small town of Risan, and it really is worth a stopover. You visit the excavations of a Roman villa which still has its original mosaics in place and are so well preserved. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit!

If you are taking the scenic coastal route around Kotor Bay, it would be very easy to pass through Risan, dismissing it as just another small, tourist town. It is, however, the oldest town on the bay and houses the foundations of large Roman villa,...More

This museum is roofed but kind of open air. You can see the layout of the building really clearly, and the gorgeous mosaics are in great condition. On one wall there are a series of well-illustrated info boards explaining the ancient history of both the...More

(This is the same review I put in Archaeological Site Carine, which is the same location as Risan Mosaic.) I don't often review attractions, but this place was unexpectedly interesting. It's very small, with "just" a few floor mosaics, but what is particularly great is...More
