Kotor nightlife

We were lucky enough, that during our visit they held the annual Kotor Karneval, so the streets were pretty crammed. It was a big party, with music, majorettes, funny customes and fire dancers.

I loved these silver people. Oh and it was still pretty hot outside

The majorettes were following the musicians around the narrow streets, and performers would show up from nowhere. But we are not the kind of people who like to follow around people that are already followed around, so we went to our favourite place, the little bakery with the magical cake.

Seriously, if you know anything about this cake, contact me

There were a few flashy, fancy clubs in the centre, and usually we could hear the music ’til the morning. When we went home, there were still many people inside and outside.

So the nightlife is pretty intense, And you know what else is? The cats. The cats are everywhere.

Sleeping on the streets, hanging around restaurants, even in shops.

They don’t even get bothered

Whenever you were walking around, there was at least one kitty in sight. Then we wandered into a shady street, and we found the cat alley.

Top Cat, tududu

I love cats, but man, did this place stink. There were like twenty cats roaming around.

Some people feed them and take care of them.

So if you like to party all night, it is absolutely possible. But if you like a little silence and solitude, and still want something unforgettable, just go out a balcony and enjoy the lights dancing on the water.

What I found lovely in Kotor was that the old went so well with the new. Like the entrance of the old town. It was flooded with motorcycles.

They were everywhere

Inside, there were the most charming narrow little streets, tiny antique shops, restaurants and a little bit too many tourist shops.

I really loved to wander around in here. We even got lost a few times, but we didn’t mind. We loved to find a new ice-cream shop or a beautiful balcony. I loved that plants were growing out of the walls, even from the cracks of the clock tower.

And I couldn’t take a decent sharp photo

At night, all the little lights made it really intimate. The wheather would cool of, and some places started playing live music.

One night we even caught a rock concert in one of the streets. We usually spent our nights close to this church:

Because there is something really extraordinary about this church. This is the point were people could think I know the history of it or maybe I’m religious. Well that is not the case. The reason why this place holds a special place to my heart, is the patisserie on the left side of this building. That is where we found the best cake ever.

It's the one on the upper left corner, the one that is almost gone

I love that cake. And the only thing I know about it, is that it’s called a Spanish Weather cake.

I’ve been searching for the recipe for a year now. I can’t find it anywhere. The memory of it’s taste is still lingering on my tastebuds. If somebody knows anything about it, please contact me. I need to have it again. I can’t desribe it, it wasn’t like anything I ever had. The taste didn’t resemble any fruits. We just called it The Cake. We went back every night. One day I will return to Montenegro. And while I’m there, I’m going to find this place again and eat all of their cake. All of it.
