Brilliant to walk around in the evening and you can take in the yachts and the lighting . You really can have a nice walk and you feel very relaxed.

Ferry Kamenari-Lepetane

Reviewed By beasles - Berkshire

As previous reviews for a foot passenger the trip is free, cars cost 4.50 Euros. If you combine the ferry with local transport you can see a great deal of the bay for very little money. The bus on the Lapetane side into Kotor is 1.50 Euros and it's such a narrow road letting the bus take the strain is brilliant. Plus, the driving laws are zero tolerance on alcohol so ferry and bus gives you a welcome treat so a little beer or bottle of wine by the waterside is definately on.

Perast, Montenegro

Reviewed By Globetrotter045 - Haacht, Belgium

The town was very quiet when I visited in September, a relief from busy Kotor. It is a great place to stroll along the bay and admiring the old houses and churches. The pedestrian only waterfront road (except for the cars of the locals) adds to the charm. You can also take a boat trip to the Lady of the Rocks island in front of the village, price is €5. Perast can easily reached from Kotor by bus or by boat.

Bay of Kotor

Reviewed By sparrow12342015 - Driffield, United Kingdom

A really picturesque part of the Balkan coastline with finger-like fjords to explore, each with its own charms. The only thing that marred it for me was the vast cruise ship in port which quite obliterated the magnificent scenery. It is to be hoped Montenegro can take a leaf out of Venice's book and restrict these monstrous vessels.

Our Lady of the Rocks

Reviewed By louandansjourney - Wales, UK

Weren’t quite sure what to expect but we were delighted by it. A five minute boat ride over to a tiny, man-made island with just one building. The boat cost 5 euros per adult (our 5 year old was free) and we weren’t expecting much but the guy whose boat we used told us to ask the lady at the church/museum to tell us the history and we were so glad we did. The church is small but very interesting but we wouldn’t have really known what we were looking at but when she talked us through it and explained some of the “gifts” in the church and attached museum it was fascinating. Google the history of the place before you go or better still find out from her yourself when you go. We had agreed for the boat to pick us up after half an hour and wished we’d said an hour in the end. We had the place almost to ourselves as we were there early in the day and in January but were told it gets very crowded at peak times. Well worth a visit.

Went here when visiting Kotor. We are good walkers so the hill was not a problem for us. A brilliant view of the bay from the top.

St. Nikola Church

Reviewed By Raelene H - Melbourne, Australia

Very nice church right in the middle of the village with a tall bell tower that you cannot miss, but what really impressed us was the museum. At only one euro, we decided even if it was not very good it wasn't expensive. It had some nice displays, but in-between the two rooms was a lovely old chapel. If you go to Perast don't miss the church, and don't miss the museum. It was a wonderful find. And the angel statues were just a little reminiscent of Dr. Who's weeping angels.

Kotor Old City

Reviewed By V_2020 - Wuppertal, Germany

it is a nice old city it has a flair of game of thrones. a few restaurants and cafes you can easily walk around there for an hour and not get bored. take a walk around the walls that is very nice or up to the castle. just be aware that it gets very hot in the summer because the heat is just storing down in the city. but definitely something to do when you stop with a cruise there.

Viewing Point at the Road Kotor-Lovcen

Reviewed By Isabel G

We went there as the first stop from a tour we started in Kotor (Montenegro Hostel Tours), the view is amazing and totally worth it. But the road is a century old road build by the Austrian Empire and it has been barely renovated. So, that means, a lot of curves and a narrow road. I recommend going there early in the morning as not to find a lot of traffic, if not, you'll end having to stop lots of times to give way to other cars. There's also a GR that goes up, so if you like hiking it's an option.

Maritime Heritage Museum

Reviewed By strangersblog - Los Angeles, California

This museum next to swanky Porto Montenegro is worth a stop. Looks like the developers put some bucks into restoring an old woodshop building and it is filled with artifacts of the days when this was a shipbuilding town, first for Austria and then Yugoslavia. Weird contrast between the antiques and the ultramodern art exhibit on the top floor. Highlight of the visit was a tour of the Cold War submarine. It's air conditioned, so you don't get the full feeling of how sweaty it must have been for the sailors. A must if you're interested in Cold War military history in this region.
