Glimpse of Enchanting ‘Kotor’ in Montenegro

Have you heard of the fortified old little city called ‘Kotor’ in Montenegro? Well, it’s about time.

Goodness, I am looking very tired here. twas the end of the day.

Kotor is another one of my favourite places I have visited in this Balkan road trip. I have to admit, I have managed to collect a few faves, and there is nothing wrong with that, I am sure. I have heard about lovely Kotor before so it was not a surprise for me that I have learned to like this place. It was, kind of, expected.

Similar to Dubrovnik, it is an old city inside a fortress, a (triangular in shape) coastal town and a popular stop for cruise ships. Well, at least it does not have the continuous flow of crowds that Dubrovnik has but it can get very busy when a ship is docked.

During our stay in Montenegro, Bubbles and I visited the walled town twice. We really liked this place. I will be blogging very soon about the things we saw and did here. I have lots of pictures of course!

So I have here a few, for now, to share with you. Stay tuned for my next travel stories and (more) pictures of beautiful Kotor.

Kotor Ancient Walls

Kotor ancient walls in Montenegro. There are no cable cars going up (although there is a plan to build one in the near future). For now, one has to go up on foot to get a panoramic view of the fortified city of Kotor and the bay.

Montenegro has one of the beautiful flags I have ever known. And oh, a very nice traditional costume as well.

The buildings inside Kotor typically have green and white wooden window shutters.
