A magical Montenegro escape

The old fortified town of Kotor is in the midst of the Orjen mountain range and Lovcen mountain, making it a stunning place to explore for history buffs and nature lovers. Situated on one corner of the vast Bay of Kotor in southwest Montenegro, Kotor holidays involve roaming around the maze-like town and venturing through the Old Town up to the fortress to take in spectacular views of the harbour.

Back on sea level in the walled town, ancient churches and mosques stand side by side on the atmospheric cobblestone streets, which will also lead you to Venetian buildings and medieval squares. There are plenty of souvenir and gift shops selling Byzantine-inspired tiles and fabrics, as well as romantic restaurants serving locally caught seafood. Nightlife on holidays to Kotor includes enough bars, music venues and clubs to entertain you into the small hours.

Kotor enjoys brilliantly warm summers with a mild breeze, but the temperature drops suddenly in the colder months when chilly winds come in from the interior.
Local delicacies to seek out include squid served with a Dalmatian dish made from potato and Swiss chard, and ‘frustule’, which is a sweet, crunchy snack.
