#1 of 36 in Historic Sites in Montenegro
Historic Walking Area Landmark
Up the mountains and through the hills, hike to 9th-century City Walls to get unmatched views of the city and the landscape from spots as high as 260 m (850 ft) above the sea. Numerous empires have left their mark on this protective structure. Gates, churches, and forts sit almost perfectly preserved along the way. Climb some 1,400 steps, and observe the historic structure flawlessly blended into the lush, colorful landscape. Don't forget to turn around every now and then--unforgettable views of the Adriatic basin will unfold right beneath your feet. Put City Walls and other Kotor attractions into our Kotor vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Sensational views of the Bay of Kotor. Entrance fee € 3 from the old town. You have to beat with several hundred stairs but really worth it.

  • I went up there around 7 pm as I was advised. I was able to climb under 28 or 30 degrees rather than 38.malgre all, the rise of 1.2 km is very trying and I sweated and drank as ever. But for what result: a beautiful view and a scenery breathtaking grace, especially at sunset. Impossible to leave Kotor without going there.

  • Challenging climb to the top but views were great. Is slippery and challenging going up and down. Wear appropriate shoes. Walls look great lit up at night  more »
