Kotor, Montenegro.

Why now?

If you’re looking for a mix of culture and beach where you’re
not going to bump into everyone from back home, Kotor is a pretty
good pick. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and less crowded than its
European neighbours, this historic coastal town is full of
Romanesque churches, restored frescoes and Venetian fortifications.
Shaped like a triangle, the pedestrian-only streets were originally
built like a maze to protect citizens. Today, this leads to
visitors getting lost while exploring the many little shops, bars
and restaurants – don’t fight it, turn off Google maps and enjoy
getting utterly disorientated. Friendly locals will be more than
happy to help you find your way back, as well as advise where to
find the freshest oysters and sample locally produced wine.

When to go

It gets pretty hot in the summer months so your best bet is
or September.

Who to take with you

Kotor isn’t a party town, so take someone who wants to chill

Don’t miss…

After you’ve explored Kotor’s cobbled old town, don’t miss out
on a trip to the Lady of the Rocks. According to legend, this
artificial islet was created over centuries by local seamen who
added rock after rock when returning from successful voyages. To
enjoy views over the bay, climb up to Kotor’s castle of San
Giovanni. The hike is particularly worth it during sunset, as the
scenery is pretty special.

An essential you need to bring with you?

The best way to explore Kotor is on foot, so pack trainers or
comfortable sandals. Pair with a flowing midi-dress so you’re
covered up but cool when visiting the religious sites.
