The Kotor Winter Carnival is a unique traditional event with a special significance owing to its centuries-old tradition.
The Traditional Kotor Carnival starts on Thursday, February 24, with music and fancy-free program called “For Kotor people”, at 18:00 in front of the Main City Gate.
The program will continue with a kid’s masquerade party in Kamelija shopping mall on Friday, February 25th, at 5:30 p.m.
