KOTOR - NEIGHBORHOODS

Kotor Port

The port of Kotor can be found just outside the entrance to Old Town, where beautiful picturesque villages are nestled along the waterfront including Dobrota, which is a 3 mile long narrow part of Kotor. Prcanj is another quaint town nestled on the Bay of Kotor, a maritime town decorated with historic stone buildings, just a short walk from the city center of Kotor.

These two charming towns are a quieter option than Old Town with great places to stay and some pretty amazing views. Taxis and public transportation are available and they are cheap and reliable connecting guests to the main sights and attractions in town. Visitors can enjoy a more peaceful stay in Dobrota away from the cruise shippers, it is one of the best neighborhoods to take a relaxing wander along the coast and quiet nights compared to the hustle and bustle of the center. Prcanj is less than 3 miles away from Kotor city center, opposite from Dobrota, filled with natural beauty, the streets are decorated with charming stone villas, vibrant gardens, and backed by the Vrmac mountain and verdant olive orchards. There are many opportunities in the port to take a cruise around the Bay of Kotor, and normally include a visit to Lady-of-the-Rock located near Perast. There are more budget-friendly options in Dobrota, and Prcanj as well as unique accommodations with breathtaking views across the bay to Old Town.

Old Town

Kotor`s Old Town, Stari Grad is the most famous portion of the city filled with history, culture, and tradition.
