City Walls, Kotor

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.

    The walls themselves are saved and restored, is a plus. On the wall you can climb and walk, it is a plus. But on the walls of a lot of garbage, clean not timely and badly. This is a minus. From the desired abundance of homeless cats they smell of cat urine. This is disgusting and not nice. But if approached by the knowledge of the history, the smell of urine can be and not notice. It would not hurt to clean the River, washing the fortress walls! Very slow ....

    The walls seen from downstairs are impressive but it's just great to climb to the top of these. We set them up with 2 children, 6 and 8 years. At the top the life is beautiful and stunning. do but take water for the rise.
