Kotor

I’m not sure what was more impressive, the drive itself to Montenegro from Dubrovnik, or what we found in Kotor shortly after leaving Croatia.

Views from the drive 

Kotor’s old town is deservedly an attraction of its own, complimented by the well kept surrounding city walls, dating back to ancient Roman origins.

I’d definitely recommend Kotor as a day stop while in Montenegro.

There isn’t specifically a whole lot to do but it’s a charming town to enjoy a long lunch and hang out by the dock area and take in the surrounding views, which actually reminded me of the fjords in Norway a little!

There was some fresh fruit markets right outside the entrance to old town while we were there which made for a nice atmosphere and this was topped off by a wedding party which loudly sang its way out of a church – so fun to watch!

Unfortunately, I was pretty unwell the day I was in Kotor and although I wanted to climb up to the Castle of San Giovanni, which would’ve surely offered fantastic views, I had to settle for seeing the pictures from others in my tour group.

Here’s a couple more pictures that I took from the ground level instead!
