Diving in Kotors or around
I would enjoy having great information to dive in Bay of kotors or around.
Does someone know who could organised it for 2 people?
Moreover, I would enjoy having ionformation to rent a car or a jeep and also good hostels/Backpekkers in Kotors and in Durmitor Park, I used to see Hotels but I would prefer guest house in order to meet people.. My budget is also limited.
Many Thanks in advance for answering.
Good futur travels to you.
Re: Diving in Kotors or around
We stayed in a beautiful place (village) called Stoliv in the Kotor bay in a camp site by the sea. It was 8 euro for 2 ppl in one tent (our own). We stayed at Jadran Camp, but the one next to it Mimoza also looked quite decent. We didn't see any backpacker places but you can rent a room anywhere along the cost, I assume the prices in September are around 10 euro per person.
Travel Tips for Kotor
Kotor can be very hot and airless in summer
Kotor is well worth visiting. The old town is beautiful and you can spend some very enjoyable days wandering around. The old walls going up the mountain behind the town are well worth climbing. Avoid midday - go as early as you can, or late in the afternoon, and do take plenty of water. It is quite strenuous.
The town is lovely, but, because it is at the end of a large inlet, and surrounded by mountains, we found it to be airless and it felt hotter than other places in Croatia and Montenegro because of that. A fan is useful, and also we found a small spray bottle filled with water helped a lot: spray it on your neck and wrists, then use your fan, and it helps to keep you cool. The Maritime Museum is interesting.
The defensive city
As you can see in the map, Kotor is well fortifying at every side, by the fortress and by the bay.
Thanks to this kind of defence, Kotor was a very difficult place to be invased by enemies in the medievial ages, and later.
View of the Bay
A favourite view of the Bay of Kotor was from the serpentine road as it winds its way up to Lovren. Just try and keep the camera steady as you swing around the corners - there are about 3 corners where you can get views like this so be ready!
clear, mirror water
The water in the bay can be so still, that you can mirror yourself in it, and sometimes it;s hard to tell what's the sky and what's the water reflection, it is amazingly bright and reflecting water. Sea is truly great there!
The Local Brew!
The beer of choice in Montenegro is one brewed in central Montenegro in the town of Niksic. The beer comes in several varieties, with Niksicko Pivo and Nik Gold the most popular. The difference between the two is supposedly that the 'gold' is export quality...but I didn't really notice a huge difference myself expecpt that the 'gold' can be more expensive! There is also a dark variety called Nicksicko Tamno.
