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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like City Walls and Church of St. Eustachius. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Milocher Park and Palace Zmajevic. Change things up with these side-trips from Kotor: Lovcen National Park (in Cetinje), Becici Beach (in Becici) and Plavi Horizonti Beach (in Radovici). And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Bay of Kotor, pause for some serene contemplation at R.K.C. Gospa od Škrpjela, take a tour of Porto Montenegro, and explore the historical opulence of Grubonja Palace.

To find where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Kotor day trip planning tool.

Paris, France to Kotor is an approximately 3.5- hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus.
