    I love old buildings and ruins, there is so much history and I always wonder “if walls could talk, what stories would they tell”. Your walk sounds perfect – a stroll that involved a bit of danger to the summit and fantastic views (I make it sound like a mountain lol). Love this adventure!

      Angie, I know what you mean. I always pause and think “who’s been here and what were they doing?” So glad I got to do the climb on this trip!

    You always visit the coolest places! I love this, I could get lost here for awhile roaming the town, castle, or hiking those mountains. Nice pictures too!

    Budva looks like a great place to visit! I’m not sure I would get Phil to climb up all that way without the promise of beer and wine at the top! Cheese sounds good tho! Epic views too! have added it to my bookmarks, great read as always.

      Haha, Garth, we can tell him there is a bar at the top! Would he be upset if we lied? Thanks, I really loved the walk and taking photos here!

    Ah, allocated bus seating in the Balkans. 80% of people don’t care, but you only need one who does for everyone to to get uprooted. I just adore Kotor (and Budva) and the views from the fortress are insane! I went up on a blisteringly hot June afternoon and had it almost to myself. I didn’t see any signs to a cottage, although I definitely had to buy a drink from one of the guys sitting in the shade with a cooler. Your photos do it justice Lex.

      David, thanks. I’m glad I managed to capture it well – you’re my go-to expert on Balkans and Eastern Europe so that means a lot!

    I love the church and chapel! The craftsmanship is remarkable and I love how much history a place like this holds! I wish we were in Europe sometimes so we could more easily explore these amazing places!!

      Thanks Jenn. We are pretty lucky over here but then I feel similarly about USA!

    Looks like a great place for exploring old streets and buildings. I love walking around and judging by your pictures, could easily imagine myself spending a day or two wandering around this place. Great photos

      Thanks, Barry. Kotor is very walkable and there are some beautiful buildings around. There’s plenty to do in the surrounding area too!

    Montenegro has never been on our travel radar, for some reason. Having read a few of your posts from the area has shown us the error of our oversight! What beautiful scenery, awesome ruins, and great towns. And fresh cheese, too? We’re in!
