  • Beautifully preserved medieval town. In the narrow streets and the street is a small but spacious squares, underpasses, stone houses with a place to be seen. Stylish and beautiful shops to shop, drink a must see places and restaurants, when that should be. Live the sea and small historic city.

  • One of the best preserved medieval towns in the world. A maze of narrow streets that intersect and lead to new fortress, a paradise for lovers of cats that populate the city!

  • Kotor-soulful, the coastal town, which includes the territory of classic, European "old town". During our visit there was more 40 degrees heat, but inside the old walls was comfortable because of the shadows. On big streets you can find plenty of cafes and shops with local products. Of the attractions you can visit the Catholic and Orthodox churches. But having gone deep into the ancient small streets, you can feel more authentic local atmosphere. Many houses in the old city still inhabited, either in the hotel or hostel. We remember a few hours spent in Kotor. Kotor-small, cozy, the coastal town, including the territory of the old city. It was more than 40 degrees during our well-being in Kotor, but we felt comfort walking inside the walls of the old city. Catholic and orthodox churches are among the sightseeings. If you want to feel the real spirit of old city go to smaller streets. Many of the houses are still resinential. In others you can find hotel or hostel. We are our staying in the city
