Kotor

Kotor
Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kotor: Blue Grotto (in Luštica) and Herceg-Novi (Mamula Fortress & Savina Monastery). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at Bay of Kotor, steep yourself in history at Kotor Old City, explore the historical opulence of Castle Of San Giovanni, and hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour.

To see traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Kotor trip maker tool.

Newcastle upon Tyne, UK to Kotor is an approximately 10-hour combination of train and flight. You can also do a combination of car and train; or do a combination of car and ferry. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Newcastle upon Tyne to Kotor due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Newcastle upon Tyne, expect much warmer days and somewhat warmer nights in Kotor, ranging from highs of °C to lows of °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) so you can drive to Ulcinj.
