Bay of Kotor

Reviewed By sparrow12342015 - Driffield, United Kingdom

A really picturesque part of the Balkan coastline with finger-like fjords to explore, each with its own charms. The only thing that marred it for me was the vast cruise ship in port which quite obliterated the magnificent scenery. It is to be hoped Montenegro can take a leaf out of Venice's book and restrict these monstrous vessels.

Went here when visiting Kotor. We are good walkers so the hill was not a problem for us. A brilliant view of the bay from the top.

Kotor Old City

Reviewed By V_2020 - Wuppertal, Germany

it is a nice old city it has a flair of game of thrones. a few restaurants and cafes you can easily walk around there for an hour and not get bored. take a walk around the walls that is very nice or up to the castle. just be aware that it gets very hot in the summer because the heat is just storing down in the city. but definitely something to do when you stop with a cruise there.

Viewing Point at the Road Kotor-Lovcen

Reviewed By Isabel G

We went there as the first stop from a tour we started in Kotor (Montenegro Hostel Tours), the view is amazing and totally worth it. But the road is a century old road build by the Austrian Empire and it has been barely renovated. So, that means, a lot of curves and a narrow road. I recommend going there early in the morning as not to find a lot of traffic, if not, you'll end having to stop lots of times to give way to other cars. There's also a GR that goes up, so if you like hiking it's an option.

Being lovers of all things medieval. The city walls are quite beautiful, you can get up in amongst them, there are excellent photo opportunities to be had the higher you go the better they are.

Perast, Montenegro

Reviewed By Globetrotter045 - Haacht, Belgium

The town was very quiet when I visited in September, a relief from busy Kotor. It is a great place to stroll along the bay and admiring the old houses and churches. The pedestrian only waterfront road (except for the cars of the locals) adds to the charm. You can also take a boat trip to the Lady of the Rocks island in front of the village, price is €5. Perast can easily reached from Kotor by bus or by boat.

Our Lady of the Rocks

Reviewed By louandansjourney - Wales, UK

Weren’t quite sure what to expect but we were delighted by it. A five minute boat ride over to a tiny, man-made island with just one building. The boat cost 5 euros per adult (our 5 year old was free) and we weren’t expecting much but the guy whose boat we used told us to ask the lady at the church/museum to tell us the history and we were so glad we did. The church is small but very interesting but we wouldn’t have really known what we were looking at but when she talked us through it and explained some of the “gifts” in the church and attached museum it was fascinating. Google the history of the place before you go or better still find out from her yourself when you go. We had agreed for the boat to pick us up after half an hour and wished we’d said an hour in the end. We had the place almost to ourselves as we were there early in the day and in January but were told it gets very crowded at peak times. Well worth a visit.

Our Lady of Health

Reviewed By Deborah V - Windsor, Canada

If you are in your 20-30s, it's easy, over 50, not so much! It's a long trek up the stairs, but the views are beautiful. It just takes longer, and frequent stops to out of shape over 50 people like us. Lol.. Stopped at the church half way up. So much history, and very authentic, wear flat comfortable shoes, as the terrain is uneven and stoned. Loved it. Cost only a few Euros, cheapest excursion out there.

Reviewed By JnVSydney - Sydney

walking through the main gate , you wonder what will greet you. A beutiful open space (main square), a favourite meeting place. Nowadays it is very busy with restaurants/cafes, souvenir shops and plenty of tourists. A fun place to start our exploration of the old town.

St. Tryphon Cathedral

Reviewed By burr6013 - Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

Containing many frescoes and a treasury of jewels, St. Tryphon Cathedral is one of two Roman Catholic cathedrals in Montenegro and the seat of the Bishopric of Kotor. It was built in honour of Saint Tryphon, the patron and protector of the city, over an earlier church built in 809. St. Tryphon Cathedral was consecrated in 1166 and reconstructed after several earthquakes. The baroque bell towers were added when the cathedral's entire frontage was destroyed in 1667. The left tower remains unfinished. The interior is a great example of Romanesque architecture with slender Corinthian columns alternating with pillars to support a series of vaulted roofs. The gilded silver bas-relief alter screen is largely considered Kotor's most valuable treasure. Up in the reliquary chapel are some lovely icons, a spooky crucifix (1288), and assorted body parts of saints including Saint Tryphon. St. Tryphon Cathedral is open daily from 8:00 in the morning until 7:00 at night. Admission is €2.50.
