Reunited with Kotor!

Walking the city wall in Kotor 5
Ever since I visited Kotor briefly many years ago, I have wanted to go back to experience more of this ancient fortified city.

With the city walls crawling up the hillside behind the houses, I decided I had to climb it. And watch the view, of course.

But first things first; parking and finding a place to stay for the night. We parked the car on a big monitored parking lot just outside the city walls. Leaving the luggage in the car, we could easily search for a nice place to sleep. We ended up with a two-bedroom apartment with double beds at D&Sons Apartments, right inside the wall.

Time for some speed sightseeing before heading off to climb the wall. The city was as beautiful as I remembered, and since we were there a bit late in the afternoon, and outside the main tourist season, we also escaped the tourist crowds.

The entrance to the city wall was close by the apartment. The fee is 3 Euro and include a leaflet with some information. Climbing upwards, gave me the urge to stop many times along the way, as the photo opportunities were constant!

While looking for a place to have dinner, we stumbled upon a concert in the church of St. Nicolas. The atmosphere was magic, and the music just marvelous!

Having a nightcap at the vine bar just across the street from D&Sons Apartments was a perfect end of the evening!
