WHERE TO GO AND WHAT TO DO
One of the nicest things to do here is to go “lost” in Kotor’s Old Town, finding your own way through layers of its history and discovering interesting details. Here you can find some ideas about what to do and where to go in our lovely town.
THE CITY WALLS OF KOTOR The completely preserved town walls of Kotor, 4,5 km in length, are one of the chief reasons that helped Kotor reach UNESCO’s list of world heritage sights. This extensive fortification system is even more impressive considering that it climbs up the fearsome hill behind the town surmounting its many cliffs to reach the top of 260m above sea level where the Fort of St John stands. Here formerly stood the Illyrian and Roman strongholds even before the “lower town” (present-day Kotor) developed and in a later era the hilltop was dominated by a Byzantine castle
The walls encircling the town and the hill were finished in the 14th century except for some sections which were unassailable to such an extent that they needed no protection. The medieval walls got their present-day appearance in the 16th and 17th centuries when they were reinforced and strengthened by the Venetians to withstand cannon fire. The fort was used by the army until the end of the Second World War. One of the fort’s peculiarities is an endemic species of slug almost blank in color Clausiliacatharenisis which lives only amongst its walls. Climbing to the top of St John’s is a must for each and every visitor of Kotor. This 45-minute climb up its stone stairways with a total of 1,450 steps opens aerial views of Kotor and dramatic vistas along its bay.
Kotor is surrounded by three mountains: Lovcen, Vrmac, and Orjen which are located in close proximity. That is why Kotor is a paradise for hikers. It is recommended not to hike alone but hire a licensed guide. Trails are not difficult but due to a big incline and high temperatures especially in summer, you need to be in good body condition.
CANYONING IN THE RIVER SKUDRA
For extreme sports, we suggest the canyoning of the Skurda River located just outside of the old town. The canyon is one of the most demanding in Montenegro and is a challenge even for the most experienced. The canyon is one of the biggest natural attractions in the town. If you are interested in this activity you can find videos on the internet and hire guides to be able to do this activity.
KAYAKING IN THE BAY OF KOTOR
Kotor Boka Bay coast is not open sea which is why there are no big waves, so the activities on the water are limited but kayaking is very popular in the bay and a great way to explore the bay. You can rent a kayak from April until the end of October and spend a lovely day on the sea.

Montenegro Hostel Travel Agency (MH Travel Agency) organizes numerous tours and activities, which start from Kotor the free city tour, budget tours, and full-day tours, all bookable online. Guests who want to check our list of all our tours from Kotor can see it HERE
