We stayed inside the Old City for a few nights and had an amazing time. It felt like we were living among a tiny community full of little bakeries, bars, and shops. I even got a haircut at the local barber. The highlight though would have to be the hike up to the fortress. The views are unbelievable and maybe... More

Kotor is a very nice town with its old walls and buildings. A leisurely stroll will take you through the city as such, but if you want som excerscise take a trip up on the fortifications surrounding the city. They can keep you going for hours if that is what you want. The city itself has had a lot of... More

Kotor's old city is large, but that's about all it has going for it. It is also unkept in many areas, and it is a series of completely interchangeable standard tourist restaurants and souvenir shops. The fortress walls are interesting, and it is somewhat pleasant to walk around, but easy to get lost. I recommend Budva more. Though their old... More

At the far end of the Bay of Kotor lies the scenic city of Kotor itself. The Old City (Stari Grad) is a medieval town, surrounded by five-kilometer long stone walls, which were built by the Venetians to protect the city from invaders. Due to its “architecture”, there is a multitude of narrow streets where it is easy and funny... More

This is a lovely old town. Totally touristy but still well worth the visit. Small so doesnt take long to walk around but just sit with a beer somewhere and soak it up. Can be expensive but we found a bar where our big beers were 1euro 50 cents. Excellent.

Easy to walk around and lots of outdoor places to eat. The climb up the city walls can be quite strenuous. Going up may not be as hard as going down. You need the proper shoes as it all embedded stones going down. We went up about one quarter of the way to get photos but I have a bad... More

Should go to pick (oldest castle) by foot, it's about 1400 stairs. Very difficult but it's must do!! Amazing view on bay, old town and Kotor from different sides. Perfect!! I love it (:

If you want a holiday where you can wonder peacefully around old streets, stop off for a drink, have a variety of great food and mix with the friendly locals then Kotor is for you. Easy to get out of town on local buses and boat taxis or trek in the surrounding hills. It has everything for all comers.

Old Kotor is very small town with different influences of several invaders in its history. Clean, beautiful streets, charming cafes, restaurants, tourist shops are full of people in the summer time in a charming and cheerful atmosphere. Because walking and discovering every corner of the town takes very short time, the best way to spend your time is hanging the... More
