10 Things to do in Kotor, Montenegro Travel Guide

Join us as we visit Kotor, Montenegro in this travel guide covering the top things to do in Kotor in terms of attractions, food and experiences. Having arrived from Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina the pattern of heavy rains in the late fall continued and kept us a bit grounded for the first couple of days. After the weather improved we jumped at the chance to wander the Old Town and Gates while hiking up to the Fortresses. For meals we ate a lot of seafood and other forms of local Montenegrin cuisine.

10 Things to do in Kotor, Montenegro Travel Guide Video Transcript: (Котор)

Good morning friends. We have made it to Montenegro. We’re in Kotor (Котор) right by the water we’re staying in the Old Town. We’ve been here a few days and it has been raining non-stop just like it was in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Like the first half of the week it just poured but now it is nice. We can’t wait to explore this city so join us as we make a little travel guide.

If there’s one thing that had caught our attention upon arriving in Kotor (Cattaro), it was the fortifications that not only encircle the old town but also run all the way up into the mountain, so a hike up to Kotor Fortress was the first stop on our itinerary.

As a tip, we would say the best time to hike up to Kotor Fortress is in the morning because the path is shaded. This isn’t a huge consideration if you’re visiting in winter like we did, but definitely something to keep in mind if you visit in the summer.

The Cathedral of St Tryphon was built in honor of the patron saint and protector of the city, on the very same spot where an older church had already stood long ago. We paid our admission and went in to visit the cathedral’s very own museum.

After walking along part of the city walls, we stopped by the Sea Gate, which is the third entrance into the Old Town. As soon as you walk through here you’re met with a clock tower and a big square that’s encircled by restaurants and lots of little lanes that break away – basically it’s a great place to wander.

And now we want to show you one more restaurant that we enjoyed in Kotor (Cattaro). This one was called Cesarica and they specialized in seafood.

Lastly, if you want to enjoy a little evening stroll, the Port of Kotor is a beautiful place. Not only can you enjoy the city all lit up at night, but if you happen to be there on a day when the cruise ship pulls into town, it’s worth sticking around to watch it manoeuvre its way.

And that concludes our visit to Kotor (Котор). We hope you guys enjoyed following along and we’ll see you in the next video where we visit the neighbouring coastal town of Budva.

So interesting about the cats! In Israel, they also have feral cats, but they are truly wild cats that you dare not play with.

Do you know why these feral cats are so docile? If not, is there anyone you can ask?

Thank you for video!

LAKHDAR BEDJOUTI says:

Montenegrins are good and generous hosts. When expecting a guest, according to an old time custom, as a sign of hospitality they open wide the door or the gate. They offer to the guest the best food and drink they have in the house

NassguI says:

Cat ain't super friendly.
It's Sam's magic fingers and the way he rubs the kitty.
