Kotor old town is tiny. You can't get lost. What I liked most about it is the fact that it still mass tourism virgin territory free from McDonald, Starbucks and hop on hop off buses. There are no cars in the centre as a matter of fact. The town seems unprepared for reception of 10 000 people leaving cruise ships... More

The Old City, or Stari Grad, dates from the 12th century, and was a wealthy trading port. Inside the city walls there are crooked, cobbled streets and beautifully preserved buildings from medieval and later times - palaces, shops, houses and churches. I felt privileged to stay in one of these historic buildings. Today the ships still come in, bringing tourists... More

What a lovely destination! it absolutely exceeded our expectations. The town was full of shops and the view from the top of the wall was absolutely breathtaking.

It's a worthwhile stop if you're in the area, but the old town itself is a bit tourist feeling...perhaps because it's flooded with tourists.

This is between a 3 or 4 star. The old town is quaint and atmospheric with narrow meandering streets and cafes, but during the day in the summer, especially when the cruise ships are in, it's a bit too much. I would imagine it's a completely different feeling at night and in the offseason. The water front has the look... More

Narrow streets with old buildings, squares and churhes, all built in mediterranean style, give unforgettable impressions. Kotor's historical old city is place which needs to be fully explored, because its unique details and style are simply gorgeous.

The place reeks with history, and if you aren't into history there's good shopping and eating. While you can do a day trip from Dubrovnik - I wouldn't because there's lots to keep you entertained.

We had a private tour guide and she took us to all the historical sites and shared the history. The city has something for everyone, historical sites, shopping, and restaurants.

The old city is in a gorgeous location and has a wonderful feeling. It reminded me of the Diocletian's Palace in Split, Croatia. Unfortunately our visit was tempered by throngs of people on a Friday night. The area around the old city was a major traffic jam. Luckily we walked there which is the best way to explore the old...
