Soooo Lonely Planet has published their long awaited Must See Places for 2016 and Kotor has been named best city in the world to visit next year. As a Balkan-born-blogger I am obviously overly proud.
The list is assembled by the LP team of travel writers and tourism experts and I honestly don’t get why they made the city a must visit and not the region on the whole. But then again, Lonely Planet has been having an ID crisis for a while now. I mean Kotor is on the cruise ship tour (where the ghosts of travel bloggers go to die) – not quite an undiscovered gem right?
And yes, the city is a) overcrowded, b) way to expensive for the Balkans and c) not a unknown place at all.
But hey … look how freaking photogenic this place is. I need to get cracking on all those Kotor posts (think: where to find the lovely woman that makes the freshest pomegranate juice, some insider tips and a follow-up on my hike adventure – Hike 2 – the Revenge of the Thigh Burn). But for now I just wanted to share some photos.
Have you been to any of the Must See Places for 2016?
