Kotor is a medieval walled city in Boka Kotorska Bay. We love the city of Kotor for all of its small cobbled streets and squares, bustling markets, and numerous restaurants and bars. In one of the squares, you’ll find the Cathedral of Saint Tryphon (Sveti Tripun), a monument of Roman culture and one of the most recognisable symbols of the city. The Old City was built between the 12th and 14th century. Medieval architecture and numerous monuments of cultural heritage have made Kotor a UNESCO listed World Natural and Historical Heritage Site.
It’s definitely worth a visit. If you feel very energetic you can climb the ramparts, but this is not the faint-hearted as the climb is pretty steep, but the view from the top is amazing.
Nearby is the small town of Perast. Worth a visit just to experience the peace and quiet, and sit by the water with a coffee. A very special place, with Venice-like architecture which includes Baroque palaces and churches, all set in stone. Apparently, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones have recently bought a house here – praise indeed!
