Kotor between 11 secret European towns you must visit


Set in the most remote part of a bay is the UNESCO world Heritage site of the old town of Kotor. One of the best-preserved sights of the region, which boasts a rich cultural tradition, Kotor is a beautiful town set on a fjord-like sea inlet. Jump on a boat and visit the man-made island of the Lady of the Rocks, or climb up the Venetian castle to enjoy all-encompassing views over the town. Get lost in the maze-like streets and squares of Old Town, where you’ll stumble upon the Romanesque-Gothic style St Tryphon’s Cathedral, built in the 11th century.

Insider Tip: The area is dotted with old, abandoned fortresses perched on hills and mountains surrounding the bay. For example, Fort Vrmac is easily reachable via a hiking trail starting from the Old Town.
