TIPS & TRICKS
Best of Montenegro experience
Kotor Old Town Farmer’s Market
Маркат is the definition of Farmer’s market. Located south-easterly of the Tourist Info Desk, you will find simple-looking stores laid out with vendors selling local produce. Great way to sample the local cheese and ham at better prices than the supermarkets.
Shopping in Kotor Old Town
Kotorska Suvenirnica, situated beside Црква Светог Луке (an orthodox church), sells good quality at affordable prices medieval army figurine. Staff can speak English and are always willing to help. Open daily from 08:00hrs to 22:00hrs.
Cathedral of Saint Tryphon
The Cathedral of Saint Tryphon ( Катедрала Светог Трипуна) was built in honour of Saint Tryphon, the patron and protector of the city and is the seat of the Catholic Bishopric of Kotor. An entrance fee of EUR2:00 is chargeable for access to the interior of the cathedral. Reviews that the interior is beautiful though small.
Saint Nicholas Church
Saint Nicholas Church (Srpska pravoslavna crkva Svetog Nikole) is the most important Orthodox church in Kotor. The interior of this orthodox church is beautiful. Not being disrespectful but photography is permissible if you ask the right person. My suggestions are – ask permission, refrain from using the flash and take photographs as quickly as possible even where there is very low light. There is no charge to enter the church.
Budva is a 2,500 years old settlement has an Old City reinforced with defensive stone walls surrounding its narrow streets. The entire city within the walls is pedestrian-only and can be covered in less than an hour. No fees chargeable to access the Old Town. The Marina would be my better option for time spent in Budva.
