This is a very photogenic spot with a pleasant outlook. I was most impressed with some of the original "mechanics" of the gate that are still intact showing how it operated. We spent quite a while taking photos around here.

one of the gates to kotor but the nicest one due to the green waters in the moat below. If you are coming to Kotor dont worry pass by here many times. a good place to start or finish a walk up the mountain.

The gate leads out of the town to the edge of the river coming down from the mountains. There are lots of people going through the gate so you can either people watch or look at the fish in the crystal clear river waters

One of the exits that seems to be guarded by lots of playful cats! Follow this into another part of old Kotor that can be very easy to miss if you go through the main gate.

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.

This was the first thing my son said when we reached the gate. I know Lord of the Rings was filmed in New Zealand but I firmly believe the crew had visited this city. gurdich Gate is located on the isolated south end.

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.
