Encompassed by the old fortress walls, the old Town is very compact with just three entrances and no vehicle traffic save for some small electric utility buggies. Easily seen in two or three hours, there are some delightful squares and allies with small cafes, upmarket clothes shops and mini markets for the locals. We visited in January and had the... More

Motor old city is very unique and beautiful experience. It's not yet - at least fully - crowded by tourists. You can find awesome pubs, restaurants and shops for any taste. The best thing about the city is the local feel you get. There are no chain restaurants etc. to make you feel plastic. Overall I would recommend Kotor for... More

Kotor is in a fjord-like setting, some miles in from Montenegro’s Adriatic coast. The location at the head of Kotor bay is very picturesque and thus now very popular with cruise ships. To cater for these, the waterfront moorings for pleasure craft has been extended to create a long dock, with a wide area of concrete hard-standing to accommodate road... More

Perfect to spend the summer afternoons, learn a about the place and have a romantic dinner in between the walls. It is possible to climb up the hill and enjoy in the picturesque view over the bay, but better when the sun is not at its peak ;)

What are you going to do ? Come back on a Sunny day if your lucky, otherwise you suck it up & get on with it. The good part was bugger all people about as we toured (Damply) and got to see the best of the City. A strangely beautiful little town which in good weather would be a world... More

We visited this Historic Old City with a tour group, unfortunately on a rainy day that made it unpleasant to walk around due to poor drainage,flooding the cobblestones and making them slippery. However we were still able to casually wander around and enjoy the numerous beautifully preserved old buildings. Would definitely return but on a fine day where you could... More

Very cosy and cute little town. Perfect to spend a day or two. Once you are here do not miss to climb up the fortification wall, you'll have a great wiew on Korot Bay from the top of it.

Kotor's Old Town is very small and romantic. Its walls give it a special charm that no visit to Montenegro can miss! Only bad thing: due to the surrounding mountains and the orientation, it is a very shady place!

This was a lovely old town to wander around. We came on a cruise and had to come by tender boat as it does not have a terminal for large ships. We spoke to a shop owner who told us an interesting story about the cats that live there (there are a lot). It is a picture postcard and not... More
