We came into Kotor by ship. The earlier part of the trip in was beautiful, small villages settled at the bottom of tall hills, in a wide stretch of water. As we entered the narrow channel to Kotor the fog rolled in and visibility was nil. Thank goodness for radar, etc. However when the fog lifted it slowly revealed a... More

This was a much smaller version of what we have seen in other cities and was easier to walk around and more relaxing. The big draw here for my husband was the climb up hill out of the old town to Castel St. John.

We visited the old city of Kotor on a day trip basis from Dubrovnik. One big myth is that it takes you only 1 and 1/2 hours to reach Kotor. Truth is that it takes you more than 2 and 1/2, depending on the long cue to cross the border. The same delay you will face on the way back... More

Delightful old city and everything is close. You can climb up the hill on a zigzag but we just enjoyed walkign round the walls and seeing the cathedral and museum.

On our first visit to this area we visited four 'old towns' but this was our favourite. It was different to the others in that there are a lot of buildings which had been palaces - there are plaques on the walls to tell who the owners were. We visited two beautiful churches, one with some of the painted walls... More

We enjoyed seeing the city of Kotor and the cute cats that inhabited it. Then we saw the entrance to what looked like the great wall of China. It cost a few euros to pass, but it was well worth it for those of you who have the endurance of a climb. Loads of switchbacks all the way up. We... More

A truly wonderful old city, both at night and during the day. The lighting at night, the narrow medieval streets gave the town a romantic, mysterious feel as we sat drinking wine and people watching. Exploring and shopping during the day was fun, although a bit busy due to a cruise ships arrival. The Montenegrans couldn't have been more friendly,... More

It is a step back in time to be in these walled cities with no traffic. Beautiful coastal city without the crowds of Venice.

Kotor is absolutely beautiful and an opportunity to see a city from the Venetian Republic which is still intact.

The Old Town is the most famous part of Kotor, where the history, culture, and tradition are being preserved. Churches, cathedrals,museums can be found within the Old Town, which are complemented with narrow streets, squares, and markets. One of the main attraction is to climb up the Upper Town Wall or so called the mini "Great Wall". You will be... More
