Kotor is a small city in the Kotor bay famous for its Old Town and wonderful views. It is one of the main tourist attractions in Montenegro and welcomes thousands of tourists every year, including cruise ships. Almost everyone who was in Montenegro visited this picturesque city. Kotor is a perfect place to spend days and nights all year round; you can check Kotor webcams to see how beautiful it is. We want to discuss in this article all the benefits of living in Kotor on vacation or for the long term. We have no doubts that after a detailed description, you will find a way to stay there for at least a couple of days.

Where is Kotor?

Kotor is located on the Adriatic Sea in the southwest part of Montenegro in Kotor Municipality. The bay where it is situated is named in its favor – Kotor Bay– and is a unique southern fiord similar to northern Norwegian fjords. The population of this city is about 13 thousand people and is decreasing due to the lack of work. It was founded in 5th century DC (at that time, the name was Cattaro) by Ancient Romans, and since then, a lot of fortification has been left as it was part of Serbia, Venetia, Hungary, France, Austria, and Yugoslavia. Kotor forts are part of the largest fortification system in the Balkans. The nearest town is Tivat, which is 11 km (about 15 minutes by taxi without traffic jams), and Budva is 23 km (about half an hour). The capital of Montenegro is located 87 km away (about two hours of drive by car). Kotor is surrounded by splendid hills and forests that make the landscape photos from the top especially remarkable. Some tourists call Kotor – “Montenegro Venice”.

Why do you need to spend your vacation in Kotor? Advantages and Disadvantages

Even the short description shows that Kotor is a unique place worth visiting. We want to highlight its advantages and insist that you check this list by yourself to see if we are right.

  • Interesting city history proved by old architecture. The Fortified Old City of Kotor is included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Unfortunately, not all buildings have been preserved from ancient times. Due to the 1979 earthquake, many parts of the city were significantly destroyed, but most were restored.
  • Close to the airport. Two Montenegro international airports are located in Tivat and Podgorica. Tivat airport has limited flights, while in Podgorica, you may fly from all over the world. There are many other options for reaching Kotor, which we describe in a separate section.
  • Fresh seafood and tasty local cuisine. The location determines the availability of many dishes, including fish, Italian, International, Asian, and Balkan cuisines. There are many café and restaurants for every budget. You can choose the ones near the Old Town or the seashore.
  • Wide choice of interesting tours in the neighboring towns, villages and cities. You can visit many nearby villages and towns, as well as beaches for every taste and any company. The stunning natural landscapes around Kotor are from every side, including islands in the Kotor Bay, where you can hike, sail, or swim.
  • Many attractions and possibilities for interesting leisure time for tourists. In addition to the Old Town, there are several museums and one aquarium.
  • Breathtaking landscapes with hills and sea views. From the viewpoints on the top of the Old Town, you can see almost the whole of Kotor Bay and the nearest mountains.

To be fair, we need to list some disadvantages. However, from our point of view, they can’t spoil your vacation.

  • Traffic jams occur in the high season (July and August). Because of the many cruise ships and the popularity of the Old Town, many tourists visit the city in summer.
  • Not so many sights in Kotor. As you see above, the choice of attractions in Kotor is limited. For an interesting two-week vacation, you need to take excursions to other cities and places.

Further, we will describe Kotor in detail, where to live, eat, what to see, and where to go.

Sightseeing and leisure time in Kotor

You can’t be bored in Kotor. There are plenty of things to do in Kotor as solo travelers or families with kids.

  • Old City of Kotor. The ancient city walls with Bastions protect the old historical buildings, capturing many historical Kotor layers from 16-17 centuries. There are several beautiful towers worth seeing -Kampana Tower and Clock Tower, several historical buildings and churches – Palata Bizantu, Grubonja Palace, Drago Palace, Pima P St. Tryphon’s Cathedral, and Bjeladinovic House. You can start your walking tour from Sea Gate, passing Old Town Square. The whole tour takes less than one hour. You can walk with kids, and there is no need to climb stairs. It is very interesting to find hidden symbols of ancient culture.
  • Kotor Cats Museum. This small museum for cat lovers is located inside the Kotor City walls. It presents mainly vintage pictures and posters. The museum also cares for numerous cats living in Kotor. The working hours are not fixed, and it can be surprising on break. There are many fairly priced souvenirs.
  • Maritime Museum. This historical museum shows Montenegro's rich history with beautiful paintings of the sea. The location of Kotor in the Middle Ages determined the main activity—sailing. You can check ethnographic collections, ship models, navigation instruments, maps, and more. This museum will also be interesting for kids.
  • Aquarium Boka. This is the first public Aquarium in Montenegro, opened in 2021. You can see wildlife from the Adriatic Sea and Kotor Bay there. The aquarium has innovative, modern designs, 16 tanks, and interactive panels.

In addition to the museums, there are several walking tours in Kotor.

  • Road to Fort St. Ivan (San Giovanni). Near the River Gate (North Gate), you can take the Old Town Road and the Ladder of Kotor to the Fort of St. Ivan. On the top of the hill, you will see the Kotor panorama and Kotor Bay with mountains. We recommend this way for tourists who love hiking and are comfortable in shoes; it might be difficult for older adults and small kids. Active people can reach the top in 30 minutes, while for calm walking, you need an hour.
  • Alternative way from the Fortress. If you do not want to return to the same road, an alternative way is definitely recommended. This way is very picturesque, in the mountains, and easy to follow. You need at least one hour to reach the Start point on the Scurda River (near Restobar Taraca). On the other side, this road is connected to the P1 road.
  • Way to Dream mini waterfall. Tourists searching for refreshments can come to a small mini waterfall in the mountains. There are many green plants on your way near the crystal water. This waterfall is dry at the end of July; we recommend visiting it after the rains or at the beginning of summer. The start to the waterfall is located near the start of the Ladder of Kotor Way.
  • Way in Skurda Canyon. After visiting Dream Mini waterfall, you can continue walking further through Skurda Canyon. It is also dry in August, so be prepared.

If you prefer hiking and day-long trips, please check the chapter on excursions from Kotor. You will be surprised at how many things to see in Kotor.

How to get to Kotor?

There are only three ways you may reach Kotor: by bus, by car, or by ship (boat). There are three main roads to Kotor – from Budva, Risan and Lepetane (coastal road). For budget tourists, we would like to recommend bus services from Dubrovnik, Belgrade and Novi Sad to Kotor by numerous operators. The trip from Dubrovnik takes about 2 hours with an average price of about 30 Euro. Kotor doesn’t have a train station; the nearest is in Bar and Podgorica, from where you can take local buses. All trains from Europe go through Belgrade and Zagreb, from where you can take a bus as well.

For international travelers, two airports are available. The closest one in Tivat welcomes regular flights from Turkey (Turkish Airlines) and Serbia (Air Serbia and Air Montenegro). The airport in Podgorica has many more options (from Austria, Poland, Hungary, United Kingdom, Greece, etc.), including low-cost flights operated by Wizz Air, LOT and Ryanair. But from two airports you need to come by car, bus or Kotor taxi. There are several international car rental services in both airports. Also, you can order the transfer from your hotel.

All year round, there is a regular ferry schedule, and it goes to Kamenari on the Croatia side and Lepetane on the Tivat Side. For pedestrians, the service is free, and during the ride, you can take beautiful photos. Also in summer, there are ferries to Bari, Italy from Kotor (ticket price is around 50 Euro). In summer, cruise ships come to Kotor Bay, so it is a nice option to visit the city during European cruise adventures. In addition to these options, you can always rent a private boat.

Kotor Beaches

Considering Kotor's location in a bay, all beaches in Kotor have picturesque views, crystal water and almost no waves. However, because of cruise ships, in summer, the water can have some oil residues in the city. But you always have the choice to take a car and travel to the nearest villages and towns in the Adriatic Sea, not in the Bay.

  • Ploce Beach. This is a remote beach 22 km from Kotor (about an hour's drive) on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, not far from Budva. You can reach the beach by boat or bus. This large beach has all the facilities for the whole day's leisure time for single travelers and families. It has a diving center, sports places, restaurants, bars, four swimming pools and beach accessories. You can even take swimming lessons while your kids are in the playroom. In the day and night, there are DJ sets.
  • Dobrota Beach. The small village, Dobrota, on the east of Kotor, is located on this good beach. There is no specific place for a beach; small beach areas are located in front of residents. You can dive directly from the pier or enter the water from the stairs. In some places, you can rent a sunbed from locals. The water is clean, without algae and mud. You can go sightseeing around Kotor by swimming in this cozy place. There are a lot of yachts in the sea nearby.
  • Oskar Beach. On the other side of Kotor Bay is Oskar Beach near a 5-star hotel – Hyatt Regency Kotor Bay Resort. For the lot, a sun bed and an umbrella you need to pay 15 Euros. Toilets and changing rooms are available as well. The water here is very warm, with small pebbles to make it a comfortable entrance. The view is beautiful, as always, on the Kotor Bay beaches. It is very convenient to come here by car as the coastal road from Kotor to Lepetane is nearby. For water sports levels, the rental service of kayaks and canoes is available. You can eat in the nearby café with pleasant music or grab some takeaway food from the nearest supermarket.
  • Plaza Ponta. Whether you decide to visit Tivat and stay there for a day, we recommend Plaza Ponta, which has the best view from the cape of the whole town. This small beach with a lighthouse is located within 15 minutes of walking distance from Porto Montenegro (the main attraction of Tivat). It is equipped with a wooden deck where you can sit or sunbathe. There are not so many people here so that you can enjoy the sunsets here. There are no facilities here, such as sun beds, toilets, or changing rooms, but people come here for peace. Water can be rather cold, so you should be prepared for large pebbles.
  • Stone Beach. For travelers searching for interesting beaches, Stone Beach is a nice location. Many tourists come here for hiking, and there are many apartments for rent here as well. In summer, the Gulf Bigova (where the beach is located) might be crowded. It is also located 23 km and half an hour from Kotor. The beach does not have a large place to rest; it is a narrow stone rock with natural steps to the water. But the water here is clean, you can also use ladders to enter. The sunbeds and umbrellas are available for tourists; you can also have a rest in the shadow of the trees. The car comes on the top of the hill; you need to step down 1000 steps to enjoy the beach.
  • Bajova Kula Beach. This beach is located on the coastal road around Kotor Bay to Pearast after Dobrota village. Because of the amazing scenery, all sunbeds can be occupied in the hot season, but you can book them in advance. You can enjoy tasty local cuisine and seafood here. There are several restaurants nearby, and there is an underwater wine cellar. The place has a natural shadow, and you can come with only a towel for a small rest. The parking lot is free but has a limited place; be prepared to make a reservation as well. The water is crystal clear with small pebbles here.
  • Trsteno Beach. Another remote beach close to Budva welcomes Kotor tourists. You need to drive 21 km to come here. It has a shallow sand entrance, so it is especially good for kids, because there are many families here and it could be crowded. The view from the beach is also stunning, and you can stay in a public area or move to large stones for scuba diving in the wild part. If you get hungry, there are several bars and restaurants. Changing rooms, sunbeds (15 Euro for a whole day), umbrellas and toilets are available as well. The parking lot, meanwhile, is large and free.
  • Tre Sorelle Beach. This almost wild beach is located in the new Prcanj town. The water here is especially clear; you can see the sea life. It is never crowded so that you can come at any time of the day. You can come here for sightseeing as well to see the old stone palace of three daughters from the old tale. The place is calm but has sunbeds from locals. Nearby are located many hotels and restaurants. You can enjoy the mountains and Dobrota village from the large rocks on the beach. The place is also good for scuba diving.
  • Kotor Beach. This public beach is located in front of the city in a sheltered location 850 m from the Old Town. It is equipped with all the necessary furniture for comfortable sunbathing – umbrellas and sunbeds. There are also showers, bars and changing cabins. The price for two sun beds and one umbrella is 20 Euro. The entrance could be uncomfortable for kids and older adults because of the rocks. In peak season, the beach is crowded, as it is rather small and has an excellent view. We recommend coming in the morning to get to the best place.

Montenegro is popular among tourists in summer because of its many beautiful beaches and crystal-clear warm water. You may stay for the whole vacation on one beach or visit several. All beaches have unique locations, nature, and views, so you can take the best photos and have a marvelous time.
