If you decide to spend your summer holiday in Kotor, you definitely won’t be disappointed. Kotor is an epic summer holiday destination that has it all: sea, mountains, history and good food.
This charming city in Montenegro is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and no wonder, once you start exploring you will understand why. The cobblestone streets of the Old Town and the buildings will take you into a medieval atmosphere. Kotor is, however, known as one of the most well preserved medieval towns in this part of the Mediterranean. The only downside is that the city can get very crowded as cruise ships often stop here.
Besides the charming medieval atmosphere, you will get a lot of spectacular views. The most amazing view of the bay you will get if you climb up to the San Giovanni Fortress. Make sure you take plenty of water with you as it can get very hot.
Another must see is the city of Perast, a 1000 years old town known for its beautifully preserved medieval look. Once you explored the town, take a boat and go to the nearest island where you will see the Lady of the Rocks. It is believed that the island was built rock by rock as sailors saw an image of Madonna and the Child so they started throwing a rock after every successful voyage.
While you’re here, visit the Blue Cave. Take a boat ride and enjoy the scenery. The boats can go in and they usually will give you a change to swim and snorkel to truly see the beauty of the caves.
Another great way to spend the day in Kotor is to go on a boat ride on the Adriatic Sea. Get on a boat, lay back and relax while you enjoy the beautiful sea views.
As for food, get ready to enjoy huge platters of it. You will find grilled meat in almost every restaurant in Kotor, also seafood and fish dishes. Start with a fish soup, try out their grilled meats and end your meal with a yummy Frustula (sweet cookie).
