This attraction involves climbing hundreds of steps on very steep inclines up a mountain along the walls of a fortress that is at the top of a mountain. The round trip climb and return to the old city is 4.5 km which for took me a little over 2.5 hours. This included rest times, pic taking, and just enjoying the... More

Great views all the way up and at the top. Took us less than 2 hours up and down and we were taking it pretty slow and taking time for lots of photos! The steps are ok in most places I wouldn't consider it a dangerous climb and water is being sold along the path.

Coming from Wales i'm pretty use to being around mountains and this it a fairly sedate climb in normal conditions. Pair it with the excessive summer heat and the state of disrepair that the steps have fallen into it can border the dangerous in parts. Anyone thinking of going into this walk in sandals or flip flops should reconsider and... More

From the moment you start climbing the view to the Kotor bay opens up and it keeps improving until you reach the top. The climb is worth it! Although it is not really well preserved, there is a lot of garbage everywhere and smell of urin. There are no toilets at any point. The stairs are ruined and it makes... More

Be sure to take the back way up and visit the farm offering the world's best goat cheese (SERIOUSLY) and beer. And don't forget your good walking shoes... Sandals are going to kill your feel. Enjoy the view!

The climbing is quite hard, but it is really worth. The views are amazing from the top of the fortress. Do not miss this opportunity, even if it is hot. Get enough water or buy water on the way up.

Not for the very young, old or anyone less than 100% firm footed as the steps have crumbled away in places and the perimeter wall - knee high is some places, nonexistent in others - isn't exactly reassuring. Your hard work and plenty of sweat will be rewarded with great views all the way up and from the top. There... More

The climb takes about an hour up and much less down. The path is easy to follow and the steps makes it a rather easy climb considering the elevation. The view from the top is fabulous and you can see the whole bay of Kotor. The entrance is €3 and children are free. Make the climb when the heat isn't... More

The city walls are more or a pathway up the mountainside where the goal is to reach the fortress and get a nice view of the city and bay. Be sure to bring your camera, another bottle of water and preferably a towel. I went up there for sunrise and was soaking in sweat eventhough I'd stopped to shoot some... More
