The wall encircles Kotor’s old town, with direct access to the bay. It was built by the then ruling Venetians to build a massive line of defense against enemies. You cannot miss this sight if visiting Kotor old town

Normally, when I was in Kotor for a day or two, that summer 2009, I had planned to go to the walls of this beautiful city. Those walls go almost completely around the core of the city.Only from the inland side, the town is sheltered by the high massive cliffs of the neighbouring mountains. One of the mountains is very...

We did a day trip to Montenegro from Dubrovnik. It’s worth spending the day there. It has its own uniqueness, with the walls going up the mountains. Be careful hiking up though. The stairs are not paved and steep so it would be a challenge.

Have seen some mixed reviews below however maybe I was lucky but we saw shooting stars and star gazed for some time. I went in August and the heat was 34c in the day, we happen to stumble to the entrance after dinner at Scorpio restaurant. To reach the very top it takes about 1hr, we did this at around... More

Nothing extra special, ordinary old sea city. It is not beautiful as Dubrovnik, but it is still worth to be seen.

A walk around this stunning walled city is well worth doing. Not a difficult walk. Interesting shops, cafes and bars.

Make sure to take pictures at some of the various turn abouts, were a bit more picturesque of the the town below than the view... More
