Kotor is one of the most popular places for tourists to visit in Montenegro. And for a reason: it is a charming town! If you’re passing through, don’t skip it. Kotor is a place all about culture, traditions and secrets around the city.
Everyone who visits seems to love Kotor, and even though it was only a day trip for me, I also fell in love with the town. I most enjoyed:
- Walking around the Old town, little narrow streets and charming spots.
- Walking up to the fortress to see a spectacular view of the city.
- And the history of this city.
TOP TIP: there are different entrances to go up to the fortress. At the first two entrances, you have to pay around 8 Euro, if you walk all the way west to the third entrance, there is a bar and a small window you can pass through to avoid the ticket fee. From there, keep walking up for a stunning view of the city. It takes about 45 to 50 minutes walking from the hostel. But worth the ticket price.
After exploring all day, I went back and caught my night bus to Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The bus journey was one of the longest of my whole trip: around 12 hours.
I paid 20 Euro. You can pay online or at the ticket office at the bus station. If you buy online, make sure to go through passport control and get the stamps before you get on the bus or the driver may refuse your ticket.
