HI I'M... KOTOR

Kotor, Montenegro

Kotor’s been described as ‘the most beautiful encounter between the land and the sea’.

So yeah it’s pretty nice.

Like a miniature Dubrovnik, Kotor is a walled city with terracotta roofs which spill out onto the coastline.

5 kilometres of solid rock wrap around the Old Town and lead up to St. John's Fortress.

Climb (there’s no cable car soz) all the way up for a bird’s eye view of the medieval city.

If Kotor was going to take a selfie, it would be from this angle.

Paddle around the Bay of Kotor by kayak to see Kotor for the postcard-fairytale-land that she is.

You'll get up close and personal with the Black Mountains and see a panorama of the winding wall.

Next stop: wine.

France and Italy need to budge up the bench, Montenegro has some of the best grapes going 🍇

Try the local vranac in little wine bars dotted around Old Town. Mon Ami is a favourite.

This Montenegrin beaut has come into its own (since independence from Serbia in 2006) and knows how to charm 🐍

Go now for the sugar-dusted cherry strudel - local figs and cherries are just starting to ripen.

Just an hour's drive south of Dubrovnik airport.
