Kotor Guide

Kotor

This is the most beautiful and best-preserved town in Montenegro. Today, as in the 17th century, Kotor embodies the magical spirit of the Venetian empire, which ruled over Kotor for nearly 400 years. This is one of the rare places in the world where the past and present merge in the perfect union.

A UNESCO World Heritage site, The Old Town of Kotor was built between the 12th and 14th centuries and it’s a beautiful monument itself. So, the first thing to do is wander the narrow, romantic streets of this historic gem of a town. Every corner of the old town hides a story just waiting to be told.

Visit some of Kotors’s many historical monuments or hike the Town Walls to get some amazing views of the fjord.

Kotor has a vibrant night life with numerous restaurants, bars and clubs.

Note: We advise all our guests to arrive in Kotor after 7 pm, as, due to large number of cruise ships and bus tours, the city is crowded during the day.
