  • Be carfule when you climb up. We didnt have any problem but you may find two many rocks on the road.  more »
  • Cool construction, excellent city. The walls are great to see both from the ground, driving in, and from the climb up the ladder.  more »
  • No matter how little time you have available in Kotor, it is worth walking the steps up at least mid-way the hill to the church to enjoy the views of the town. It only takes 15 minutes to get up...  more »

  • Loved every inch of them... Generally, I adore watching old towns and their walls, they always tell stories, old and almost forgotten stories that spark up imagination! 😍😍😍😍❤❤❤❤
  • Had a lovely walk up to the fortress - it’s a great heart starter & earns your breakfast ! If you can go early (7am) or earlier you’ll have the place relatively to yourself. Take water (you can buy I the walk as well), wear runners & head up & up & up - something like 1350 steps. Gorgeous views of the roofs of the old town
  • You can come here on several different occasions as I have now and still find different and new things to see. A charming, friendly and historic place.
  • You pay 8 euros to get onto the trail that leads the fortress! Totally worth it as you get to see the best views of the bay of Kotor! Try to go early in the morning or late afternoon, as during the day there are many tourists coming from the cruising ships! And don’t forget to bring along a big bottle of water. It will be much needed!
  • Great city, great walls, great ..everything.
