The approach to Kotor is mystical, gliding through fjords like water ways and surrounding steep mountain ranges91000m) which plunge into the Boka Bay of Kotor.
From the ship, the mountain range feels as if its in your back yard, close enough to touch.
The historical center is a walled city connected by a pedestrian bridge over a moat to the new town. The old town is small,lots of small narrow cobbled streets and piazzas,2 main churches and a great relief from the touristy over flooding of souvenir shops as found in the port of Dubrovnik!A beautiful marble fountain spurting icy cold water was a huge welcome when the UV had touched 10!
The wall is 20 m high and meanders way up the mountain slope to a monastery and castle a top.Its was for the energetic sturdy legged people. We spent our time just soaking in the magical spell of Kotor.
Price of a coffee or lemonade was only 1.60 Euro in the old town!
