The maps have been produced as part of a 2018-19 project by NGO Expeditio, entitled “Trails Through World Heritage”, and have been distributed to Kotor Tourist Board, which also provided support in delivering the project.
Three maps have been printed, each with a run of 5000 copies:
Muo (Peluzica) – Fort Vrmac – Sveti Ilija
Glavati (Uvala Sv Ane) – Prčanj – Gornji Stoliv – Donji Stoliv
Kotor – Špiljari – Krstac
All interested locals and tourists can pick up free copies of the maps at Kotor Tourist Board information points.
The maps have been made available in English and have also been provided in electronic format to Kotor Tourist Board.

One of the aims of the “Trails Through World Heritage” project was to offer something completely new to tourists from within the Natural and Culturo-Historical Region of Kotor, a region which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It was also aimed at encouraging those who live in the area to adopt an active lifestyle by promoting alternative types of eco/active and cultural tourism (outdoor, hiking, rural…). This would be done through analysis, mapping and development of informational and promotional material on walking and hiking trails.
The Natural and Culturo-Historical Region of Kotor, part of the Boka Kotorska Bay, is one of over 1,000 places across the world that make up the UNESCO World Heritage List, being of exceptional value to humanity. The harmonious relationship between the impressive nature of the Bay, and its diverse and rich cultural heritage, created and preserved over centuries, gives the Kotor region characteristics of a cultural landscape of exceptional universal value.
The “Trails Through World Heritage” project was supported by the Kotor Municipality through public competition for the allocation of budget funding for the financing of non-governmental organisations in 2017.
