Kotor Old Town

After visiting Perast in the morning, I drove to Kotor in the afternoon for a look around the old town. I contemplated the long steep climb up the mountain to see the fortifications and the upper town walls but it was just too hot! I contented myself with staying at ground level and walking around the town. Most of the old town isn’t visible from the main road that passes through. You have to walk through one of the gates in the old wall to access the old town buildings.

That’s the end of my sightseeing in the Kotor region. Tomorrow I have a drive of about two hours to cross the border into the southernmost tip of Croatia for a brief visit to the city of Dubrovnik. The following day I’ll cross into Bosnia & Herzegovina (I’ll see more of Croatia after my visit to  B&H).

  1. Enjoy Boznia and Herzegovina. I went there many times after the war taking aid to children’s hospitals, orphanages etc. Lovely people and an interesting and picturesque Country. Mostar is very well worth you camera lens. This Country still has the second largest number of land mines in the World (as far as I know) so be careful.
    Enjoy.
