    Stayed inside the old town -an orange color little kingdom for a week. Situated right next to the Škurda River and Bay of Kotor to the North, West and part South, backed by castles, mountains and high walls to the East.
    It's so pretty, I wanted to take my time instead of killing myself this time. But It was impossible. I almost passed out the day I left; collapsed on the bus with an all aching body and legs hoping to recuperate when my bus gets to Albania.

    It took 3 days to just find my bearings around. Still unsure at the end if there were 4 or 5 big gates linking by high walls. By the way, it was a smoker's Paradis. A packer of cigarette is 10 times cheaper than what you pay in Aust.

    The views from the walls are fantastic. Visited in February and there was no one to purchase a ticket from, also the western-most entrance (marked “A” on the map) was closed. While the views were incredible, it was really sad to see how much trash has been left up there and that nothing seems to really be done about cleaning it up.

    I went in November the "off season" LOL and it's impossible to get a park! What an incredible, lively and fun city. There's something going on everywhere.

    Great visit to the Church and Museum. Our tour group arranged everything in advance- including bus transport, water taxi, and entrance to the church. It was really interesting to learn the legend of the "lady" and how the locals built this island to house the artifacts.

    When the bridge was completed it was among the biggest bridges in Europe. During the Second World War it played an important role when the partisans stopped the advance of the Germans by blowing up the bridge. The bridge makes it easy to cross the Tara River and the canyon of the same name. The canyon has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is part of the Durmitor National Park, one of the most beautiful places in all of Montenegro.

    An easy start certainly led us on. All we did was: Go Go Go, chasing the view at each turn. Very soon, Kotor's terracotta roofs and the humongous big liners became small and distant. And before you know you almost half way up.

    Now, it's the other half that's challenging. Steps were steep, uneven, single filed most way, enough just for one person on it. A few look-out areas to take break -thank God they're there, I saw people's faces: some wanted to sit there and gave up moving. But no, at the end, everyone reached the top. (How do I know? I was one of those sitting down) More up the vista opens wider and bigger. The top boulder platform commands splendid views in all directions. Following the massive cruise ships, one could see The Bay of Kotor out to the Adriatic Sea. It was exhilarating !

    It took about 45 minutes up with the last 15 demands a fair bit of effort, but achievable. A couple of local man selling chilled water on trail for 1,2 or 3 euros. There are also easier and longer ways to go up starting at different locations outside the old town if you do some research.

    An amazing place to visit. Well worth the drive up the mountain. I was pleased we went early to avoid it being too crowded. We were hitch-hiking and were immensely grateful to the kind driver taking a small tour group who stopped to give us a lift, both up and down. I cannot recall their names but experiencing Montenegro generosity and care enhanced our visit. If you are in a car and don't want to drive up the last part of the road with the hairpins, you can park in a lower car park and walk up, which a lot of people were doing. Very good value snacks and gift shop items. You need to have shoulders and knees covered as it is a monastery. Wonderful old art and views, and also a spiritual place.

    Worth a visit to marvel at the fancy yatchs and some great designer shops but the promonade is a joy to walk along! Food is expensive but really good, had a great afternoon here. Park at the main car park for PM near the start of the promonad. On the oyhe side the beach looked great for the kids although we were sadly short on time :(

    Nice place with fantastic view from the top .
    Memorial reminds ancient Egyptian tombs and pyramids in terms of symbols used to underline role of the person.

    The structure (aka Fortress of St. Mary) dates to the 1425 era and was designed to prevent attacks from the sea. Everything needed would have been housed inside, everything. Original building construction is dated much, much earlier.

    Its most recent use was during the occupation by the Austrian army during WW II for troops.

    Supposedly, the chapel of St. Mary is somewhere in the citadel interior.

    We did a private tour with Mont Travel (owner/operator Dimitrije Jovicic) and one of our stops was this lookout that provided a beautiful view of Kotor and the entire peninsula that our cruise ship sailed in from the Adriatic Sea.

    Pretty little church that has an upstairs section with artifacts and archways to look out onto the town square. The main floor has elaborate alters all around the outside. There are silver religious artifacts, textiles and more upstairs.

    The path to the statue is nice and will take you to one of the beaches. Definitely worth visiting them both at the same time.

    Is a new Orthodox church near to city center in Podgorica with twin towers and a arch a little different than other churches with the Byzantine style

    I went on a hike in the begining of July as a solo traveler, but was lucky that a couple allowed to join them. It took us 7 hours round trip - I don't exercise much, just hike daily, so it was strenuous for me and I had to make short breaks. Things to take into account: hiking boots higly recommended as there are loosy rocks (especially not far from the peak) / take plenty of water as there are no water supply / path is such that you climb up, then you go trough the hilly valey down to the bottom of Bobotav kuk and then you climb all the way up to the peak / going back trough the valey was really hot. Don't forget to start early. There is a 3 eur fee, a national park worker collects it.
