What a remarkable walled city. This is pretty isolated with the sheer cliffs surrounding the bay, but in the way back days fortifications were obviously necessary. The fortress overlooked the walled city. The gates on three points only. Businesses butting up against the walls with souvenier objects.

Enjoy the atmosphere around the castle including the old walls. Just walk along and don`t forget to take photos.

Kotor is a wonderful city and seeing it from the top of the walls is a must if you enjoy beautiful views. It was pretty warm in October and it's all uphill so bring water. It's definitely worth the hike up.

As a matter of fact you can climb all the way round the city walls andn that is the real joy of this attraction- you don't have to return back down the same way :) You would have to find the way back carefully and steps aren't in very good condition as the northern part, but you should really try...

You can't really walk all the way round the city walls here, it's rather down in patches. However the north west wall tower is worth a visit for the views down the bay.

A wonderful way to spend a day. Great exersize and unbetable view from the top. You will need 40 min to the top so be sure you bring a bottle of water.

The Old City of Kotor has some of the most beautiful city walls in all of Europe. The stout stone walls and fortifications rise from moats and surround the city. The fortifications continue up into the mountain range above the city - simply stunning! The city gates are small and narrow and obviously designed with security in mind. Enjoy this... More

Great walk and views. Chapel mid way up for a restful break. Take your time and enjoy the mountain and bay views. We took a light lunch and snacked along the way up the wall. Descent brought us back through a neighborhood, which was quite interesting to enter city and neighborhoods from hill side. Battlements are in much disrepair so... More
