In this video, I take my viewers on a tour of hiking the St. John’s Fortress of Kotor, a fortified city in Montenegro which lies along the Adriatic Sea. The city has been around in some form or fashion since Ancient Rome, around 100 BC.
Characterized by winding streets, historic architecture, and a gorgeous bay, Kotor is a very popular tourist attraction.
If you’re planning a trip there, watch my video below.
