Have you ever visited Kotor outside of the whirlwind, busy months of the high season? Summer holidays in Kotor have the tendency to overshadow the remaining months of the year. It’s certainly understandable why that could be, however, the romantic calm outside of the busy high season has much of its own magic to offer.
Winters in Kotor are often without snow, but it does occur from time to time. In fact, last year we saw the city – if briefly – become entirely blanketed with snow. And what a sight it was. The majestic, walled-in Old Town under white cover, right on the Bay of Kotor, an extension of the Adriatic Sea. Snow in Kotor may be more rare, but this jewel of a city is often surrounded by snow-capped, snow-covered mountains in the winter, contributing to the fresh, crisp air, while providing a majestic sight.
Yes, Kotor offers a different type of splendor when the winter rolls around. The city transforms into a peaceful, quiet escape. It’s in stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the seacoast in the summer. Locals and visitors alike, go for long walks along the bay, exploring hidden alcoves, catching up with loved ones and photographing local spots of history and legends like Tre Sorelle Palace and Our Lady of the Rocks. It’s also still a wonderful time to climb. Choose from one of three paths to scale the Old Town for exercise, incredible photo opportunities and wondrous views. Feeling energized? Be sure to continue all the way to the top, to reach Kotor’s Castle of San Giovanni.
Enjoy gorgeous weather and much milder temperatures than most other areas in the region. Bundle up elegantly in winter garb, while sipping warm drinks on the Adriatic Sea. It’s a calm, quiet and relaxing time… an ideal time to visit as a couple. Discover romance in every corner. History. Legends. Stunning landscapes.
The Old Town is but one portion of the city of Kotor, and the Bay of Kotor traces several locales from Dobrota to Perast and Prčanj. There are many places to enjoy with a number of excellent local restaurants and cafes along the way.
Guests enter restaurants built into the Old Town’s walls for a slice of Montenegrin history, local cuisine and wine. Others take advantage of the sea views, dining in locales with floor-to-ceiling windows on the bay, for the next best experience to al fresco dinner services.
There are events too, as well as periodic concerts and other cultural events both in Kotor’s Old Town as well as in Porto Montenegro, in the nearby city of Tivat, about a ten minute drive.
