There are quite a few old walled cities along the Montenegro and Croatian coast and one of the prettiest is Kotor. While the actual walled town is nothing exceptional, the walk up the walls to the citadel about half way up the rugged mountain behind the settlement is truly worth the effort. Unlike many things in this part of the... More

It's quite some work to climb all the steps (over 1300) to the top, but it's definitly worth it. You are rewarded with spectacular wiev. It cost €3 for entry.

Take the climb up the city walls to the fort and you are rewarded with incredible views. The hike is not too bad, average fitness should suffice. The walls are falling apart a bit but i think it adds to the charm

Overall, Kotor could be a great place to visit. But Montenegrans are awful, rude, filthy and cannot get their act together. The place is a cruise ship dock, buzzing with one-day tourists. The city is filthy, and you have to pay to get into every place. The locals are the most rude people I have ever encountered in 40 years... More

It may take a bit of climbing but it is worth it. The views are good and the experience is something you shouldn't miss.

A truly amazing and extensive fortress. Wonderful views from the entrance gate to the pinnacle at the top. If you want any information abot it's history read up in advance, nothing seemed to be available on-site.

Fantastic views over Kotor will be your reward when you take the 1 hour CLIMB to the top of Kotor city walls. Don't be fooled, it's more a hike than a leisurely stroll. The paths are in bad condition and its steep. But, it's worth doing for sure. There's an entry fee but it's not much.

Views of the Kotor harbour, old fort on the hill and Stari Grad. Easy walk but impossible to walk around the entire town.

The walls that surround Kotor are worth an exploratory walk. they line the roadside by the bay and can be seen winding up into the montains above. sections are lit at night so make sure you dont get trapped in an unlit section after dark especially in winter. The little section in the picture has a lovely green/blue pool before... More
