  • Amazing views, an absolute must if you go to Kotor. Not for people who struggle walking (1300-1500 steps to the top), but absolutely breathtaking when you get up there! Should take you 1-1.5 hours...

  • Well preserved and beautiful old town. You can see Blessed Osanna’s hermitage from the 16th century—located within St. Paul’s Church.
  • Great old town with lots of cats and interesting architecture. I think it’s a must see destination!
