I took a long walk around for several hours in the afternoon as part of a packaged tour group. The stay was longer than I would love as the buildings looked largely old and unattractive and some were in a dilapidated or evn slightly gangerous state. It was worth visiting but 2 hours is more than sufficient. Some visitors did... More

This is one of the loveliest corners of Montenegro, tucked away deep within the Bay of Kotor. The walled old town is very charming with lots of old churches (about 10, both Catholic and Orthodox, although not all are currently in use), including one on the cliffs overlooking the town and the bay below. It's a popular stopping off point... More

I visited Kotor in July 14 as part of a Med cruise. The ship anchored outside Kotor and boats took you to shore. Once you found the old town it was an enjoyable walk round the back streets where tourist driven shops were largely the main stay. However there were an unusual assortment of bespoke shops that carried a wide... More

My wife and I enjoyed tremendously our walk around the walls of the old city on the cliffs overlooking Kotor. Some of the views were really spectacular. Well worthy of a couple of hours. I had never heard of this city before so was truly astounded when we arrived in port. Spectacular.

We went there after our Dubrovnik visit, Kotor is more quiet and less crowded, the price of hotel and restaurant there is more reasonable than Dubrovnik and it's only 2 hours by bus from there, I recommend people to go if you have a few days to spare. And climbing their wall to the top is really fun!

arrived noon Saturday 1st November 2014 aboard Thomson majestic.the fiord and meandering river reminded me of Scotland.the medieval walled city has world heritage status.inside there are crooked streets, cobbled piazzas and churches.pull up a chair and enjoy a leisurely meal.the local beer is called nicsicko but is actually very good.

The moment you enter by one of tbe gates in the old walls, you are in a maze of narrow cobbled streets leading to squares, often with interesting churches. A lot of the restored buildings are tourist shops, but there are bars and houses that look as though they are lived in. The cathedral is worth a visit, as is... More

I took my family on a 10 week tour of the Balkans this fall and Kotor old town was one of the most well preserved medieval cities we saw. combined with its spectacular setting on the bay of Kotor it is in my view one of the top attractions of the eastern Adriatic coast.

I really liked walking around and getting lost in all the small streets. Nicely renovated. Lots of shops and cafes. Also nice to take a walk around the old city walls (takes a couple of hours).

A bit under-discovered but such an amazing and authentic place. It's only 3 hours drive from Dubrovnik and it's way cheaper and less crowded than the Game Of Thrones' famous city! Locals are way more friendly than their neighbors in Croatia, shorter too :) Try the black risotto if you have the chance, it's their specialty along with many other... More
