The Old City of Kotor, built between the 12th and 14th century has preserved its medieval architecture and numerous monuments. Due to it being so well preserved it has made Kotor a UNESCO listed "World Natural and Historical Heritage Site".
The beautiful Old City of Kotor is surrounded by ancient walls that once protected it from its enemies. These walls are skillfully crafted into the natural steep slopes of the hill.
When you wander through the Old City you will notice that the buildings are criss crossed with narrow streets and cafe-strewn squares.
We loved this beautiful coastal town in Montenegro and cannot wait to go back in the future. Lucky for us our Airbnb was right in the heart of the Old City and only a short walk away from their lovely stone beaches. Being back swimming in the sea was definitely something that we miss from home; the Adriatic Sea was quite cold but very refreshing as the temperature outside of the water was warm.
We hiked up the fortress in Kotor and this was our spectacular view from the top. This view was definitely worth the rigorous walk up the 1350 steps.
