From 1st April to 1st August, 99,402 tourists visited Kotor’s fortresses. The total revenue from entry fees was €795,216 euros.
In the same period last year, 68,218 tourists visited, bringing in €545,744.
Speaking to Boka News, Željko Knežević, from the Directorate for Planning and Development of Kotor, which manages the city walls, stated that 30,000 more visits had taken place over the same period.
The reasons cited by Knežević were the 20 percent increase on last year in cruise ship visits, along with opening earlier in the year. Another possible reason given was the changing weather, making conditions for visiting the fortresses much more pleasant.
The ticket price is 8 euros.
