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.

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

Out of all the gates into the old town I think this one is the best. Very picturesque with a small section of town wall you can get up to for a better view. Set alongside a small, stream fed pool with lovely teal waters and some good picture opportunities. You will probably stumble across it but if you don't... More
