Kotor is a picturesque coastal town located along the southern edge of Montenegro. It’s well connected by bus and ferry.
Traveling the City by Bus
Kotor can be easily seen on foot, buy many visitors prefer to take the red tour buses in the area. This is an especially popular choice when the weather’s hot. Unfortunately, the price of these tour buses can be a little pricey and may coast about 20 euros to ride. The red tour bus in Kotor is smaller than those found throughout the rest of Europe. Also, it’s only a single deck bus, while double decker buses are more common elsewhere.
There are also direct international buses to Dubrovnik, Sarajevo, and Mostar. The Sarajevo bus runs to Ulcinj, and stops at Mostar, Dubrovnik, and Kotor along the way. There’s a night bus that leaves Mostar around 11 in the evening and at seven in the morning. This bus connects to Dubrovnik in just a few hours, and Kotor no more than six hours later.
Taking the Car Ferry
If you want to take a shortcut to get to Kotor, there is a car ferry that will take you across. The ferry line operates between the villages of Lepetane and Kamenari, along the narrowest part of the bay in the Verige Strait. A one-way ticket for car less than five euros, but pedestrians can cross the strait free of charge.
