This Kotor timelapse video of afternoon into evening in this UNESCO-heritage-listed town shows you what out afternoon view was like from our holiday rental from the the opposite side of the bay at Muo. This alone made it worth staying on this side of Kotor’s old urban centre – Stari Grad.
It took a couple of tests to get the right light on the right day for this video as there was sometimes low cloud and high winds that almost blew my tripod over on several occasions!
On this magical afternoon it 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 old city wall. This wall dates back to medieval times, built on and off between the 9th and 19th centuries, and built by everyone from the Byzantines to the Venetians.
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.
Climbing up to Kotor’s Castle Of San Giovanni in Montenegro is best attempted after strolling Kotor’s Stari Grad, which should provide enough of a warm up for a walk up to Tvrđave Kotora or the Castle of St John. Expect stupendous vistas of the fjord and a fabulous birds-eye-view of the Old Town of Kotor, Montenegro.
