Kotor

Kotor
Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
Change things up with these side-trips from Kotor: Mamula Fortress (in Herceg-Novi) and Blue Grotto (in Lustica). And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Bay of Kotor, examine the collection at Maritime Museum, head outdoors with Mount Vrmac, and head off the coast to Island of Saint George.

To plan Kotor vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Berlin, Germany to Kotor is an approximately 4.5- hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. Expect a daytime high around 38°C in July, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can go by car to Ulcinj.
