KOTOR OLD TOWN

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - ACTIVE -

It looks like it’s just fallen off a (pho­to­shopped) post­card, but this liv­ing, breath­ing mu­seum of a town is ac­tu­ally a Unesco World Her­itage site, and with good rea­son. The cob­bled streets, pic­turesque green shut­ters, chim­ing clock tow­ers and wine-bar stocked squares might seem rem­i­nis­cent of a Dis­ney movie, but this is still ev­ery inch a work­ing town, with a fas­ci­nat­ing his­tory the chatty lo­cals will be only to proud to fill you in on. Top tip: You’ll have to climb up 1,200 stairs to reach the top, but a hike up the town walls will re­ward vis­i­tors with one of the most breath­tak­ing views of the Boka Ko­torska (Bay Of Kotor) around – and in a coun­try re­plete with breath­tak­ing views, that’s no small ac­co­lade. Re­ward your­self af­ter the climb down with stun­ningly fresh seafood in the har­bour be­low.
