LOVELY OLD TOWN TO EXPLORE

Excellent restaurants & bars

Kotor Montenegro

Kotor is a beautiful medieval walled city and a UNESCO listed heritage site. There are four entrances to it and Venetian inspired architecture is prominent.

In numbers: 11 palaces (even the youth hostel is a former palace), 11 chruches and 24 bations on the awesome 4.5 km long ramparts which are best tackled in early morning or late afternoon. 

Dining out

There are some excellent restaurants and bars to suit all budgets and some of the twisting streets of white stone still bear the workaday names such as Bread Square and Milk Street.  

Festivals

Kotor has many festivals starting with the Masked Ball in February and Boka Nights  Festival is the biggest event on the cost – usually on the second or third Sunday in  August when Kotor bay is packed with a flotilla of boats and there is a spectacular firework display. In peak season Kotor Old Town can get very busy with many of the cafes playing music late into the night.

Swimming

The nearest place to swim is in the Kotor Bay and there’s a good shingle beach, a five minute walk north of the old city. A good bus service runs along the coast offering easy access to other resorts.

Our hotel s, Astoria and Monte Cristo are in the middle of the old town where adjacent buildings are close together.  If you are the kind of person who enjoys staying in a canal-side hotel in Venice or in a raid in Marrakech where bustling daily life is around then you will like our Kotor hotels
