There isn't really that much to see. It's simply one of the exits out of the walled city. But if you are exploring the city you may as well swing past and take a look. There is a small water/moat around the city.

Nice medieval fortification with a view of the harbour but plenty of garbage does spoil the impression.

The Gurdich Gate is much more interesting than the Sea Gate that most tourists use to enter the city. It doesn't take long to walk there from the center if the town. There are several stairs that you can climb to wander around on the top of the fortification.

I almost couldn't find this gate. A very scenic and quiet spot almost located at the far end of the old city, with clear waters that flow into the Bay of Kotor. A nice spot for photos as well.

Very nice gate - quiet and away from the crowds. A nice access point to the old city. There a pretty pond with fish and some other small critters

This was the entrance we used to Old Town. Far fewer people. Nice enclosed pond. It wasn't far until we came to the southern entrance to climb up to the fort above Kotor (there are three entrances for that as well) and we preferred this entrance because there are fewer people.

A short ten minute walk from the main gate is this unique entrance to Old Town. One passes the market and an enclosed pond. The walk way around the pond leads you over a bit of a bridge and through a narrow passage way. The pond had a bit of a septic odour, but looked rather nice, but I would... More

Very historic and small town. Clear water, you can see school of fish under the bridge. Picture opportunity.
