A record 137,508 tourists visited Kotor fortresses from 1st April to 1st September.
The total revenue from ticket sales was 1,100,064 euros.
In the same period last year, 104,492 tourists visited the fortresses, generating a total income of 835,936 euros.
Željko Knežević, from the Kotor Directorate of Planning and Construction, which manages the city walls, told Boka News that some 33,000 additional visits had been made in the same period.
The reasons for this, Knežević states, are twenty percent more cruise ship visits compared with last year, paid entry beginning earlier, on 1st April, and the fact that conditions for visiting the fortresses were very good, given the improved weather.
“The positive trend for visits continued throughout September, we have good prospects for tourism in the coming months, and we are expecting a record number of visitors by the end of the year,” Knežević stated to Boka News.
Entrance to the fortresses costs eight euros.
