How to Spend 1 Day in Kotor

How to Spend 1 Day in Kotor

If you’re planning a day in terraced, medieval Kotor, tucked into Montenegro’s steep-sided Bay of Kotor, there’s plenty to see and get you out and about. From admiring the walled Old Town to mountain hikes and boat trips, here’s how to spend a day in the city.

Morning: Get to Know Kotor

Find your feet in Kotor on an introductory Old Town walking tour—this compact, traffic-free medieval city is ideal for exploring on foot. Choose a private or small-group foray, and roam the stone streets to see the Cathedral of St. Tryphon, Square of Arms, and the Sea Gate, the 16th-century main entrance built by the Venetians. Learn about Kotor’s history en route, and gaze at the steep hills behind the town. If you have the energy after your tour, perhaps hike or cycle down the zigzagging paths or roads, tackling what’s known as the ‘Ladder of Kotor.’ You’ll be rewarded with spectacular panoramas as you go.

Afternoon: On the Water

After lunch, get out onto Boka Bay—the local name for the Bay of Kotor—to experience its beauty spots, towns, and views of the city sandwiched between the mountains and water. Book a private speedboat to Our Lady of the Rocks Church, perched on its own artificial islet, and swim in the neon-blue waters of the Blue Cave. Other options include shared cruises to Our Lady of the Rocks that also let you stroll, sightsee, and eat in the church-packed town of Perast; you’ll find regular boat departures from Kotor. Alternatively, take advantage of the bay waters to try stand-up paddleboarding, getting instructions and paddling by beaches, coves, and nature reserves.  

Evening: Sunset Strolls and Dinner

Kotor looks magical at dusk and after dark when its lights are reflected in the glittering bay waters. An evening stroll on the palm-lined promenade is great for admiring the setting and building an appetite for dinner at one of Kotor’s restaurants. Grab a table for signature Montenegro dishes such asbuzara (seafood in a white- or red-wine sauce), lake carp,pršut (prosciutto), or black cuttlefish-ink risotto.
