A Kotor timelapse video. An afternoon in Kotor, Montenegro

This is my second Kotor timelapse video from Kotor, Montenegro. You can see the first here.

This one was shot between 17:46pm and 21:13pm with a photo taken every 20 seconds. This is an afternoon to evening time lapse looking across to the heritage-listed old town. The lights you can see on the hill follow the contours of the city wall. You can read more about the Tvrđave Kotora or the Castle of San Giovanni or Castle of St John castle of Kotor in this post.

Enjoy it full-screen for maximum effect as we’ve now upgraded the video to High Definition (HD) quality now that we have fantastic broadband access.

Or you can watch it here on YouTube if you prefer.

Our holiday rental in Kotor might not have been in the beautiful old town, but the bonus was watching this sight every afternoon as the sun went down.

    I love how that mountain road appears after dusk! And how it looks like a shark jaw with its reflection!

  2. Lisa Bergren May 14, 2010 at 10:56 am

    Nice! That golden light at the end of sunset is my favorite, anywhere in the world…

  3. Akila May 14, 2010 at 12:47 pm

    Gorgeous! I love how the smoke comes out of the chimney stacks and the lights snake up the mountain.

  4. Terence Carter May 14, 2010 at 11:09 am

    Thanks guys!

    Missy ExP, the lights are around the walls that used to protect the town from invaders and go up to the castle here:

    There is a road that snakes around on the right, but it’s not lit.

    Thanks. I love that smoky section of the piece the best. Just love how it drifts across the water.

    Did you watch it full-screen?

    Stunning! Such a magical ending.

  7. Risamay February 19, 2011 at 2:46 pm

    Okay. And here I thought the first version was spectacular. This one is seriously spectacular. Simply wonderful.

    Thanks, Amer! Much appreciated. There are a bunch of other time-lapses on here too, in Venice and Cape Town and I can’t remember where else… click on the Vimeo link… we spent a year staying in holiday rentals for our HomeAwayUK-sponsored Grand Tour last year (until Feb this year) and most of them were shot from the balconies or windows of our holiday rentals. Terry has a lot of patience, you’re right. Thanks for dropping by!

    wow..this is an amazing time lapse video. Loved it! the scenery is spectacular. I’m assuming this was taken from your hotel room? If not, then you have a lot of patience! Also loved the Burj Khalifa time lapse. Keep going and I’ll keep coming!

    This is beautiful! I was in Budva in Montenegro but didn’t have time to make it to Kotor – just went through it on a bus! Thanks for sharing.

    I absolutely love this footage! I did a day trip to Kotor from Budva several years ago and thought the place was pretty amazing. There’s some great hiking to be had up by the city walls; certainly makes it worth the trip. Thanks for bringing back some great memories from Montenegro!

  13. Terence Carter November 21, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    Thanks, the hike up the city walls must be done! However we did have to wait until nearly the end of our stay to get the perfect weather for it. It’s a beautiful place.
