The Gurdic gate is by far the quietest of the 3 city gates, but it's also the one that gives the best impression of how well protected this little city was. As you cross the drawbridge over the spring, you are instantly transported back in time as the streets cobble over and narrow before you get to the more touristy... More

You'll definitely find a good spot for a photo here, and it's close to the bus stop. Just inside you can climb up for a view over the walls. Worth a look on the way past.

I'm surprised to find this is a "thing to do." It is just an old castle gate you can walk on and around. It's a nice accent on the old city, but not really something to do for more than maybe 5 or 10 minutes.

This is one of several gates into/out of Kotor old town at the south end. It is a little out of the main old town but the approach through the narrow stone alley is worthwhile. The gate itself has a small draw bridge and the old sherical metal weights can be seen. Once outside the gate there a medium sized... More

Saw this as part of a walking tour of the city. Good photo shoots from the location. Only by walking out of these and other gates one can actually appreciate the level of protection the local population needed in those times

You go through a tunnel. There is a spring feeding the water outside the walls. Nice and less traveled.

Visiting the walled old city of Kotor is a wonderful experience no matter which gate you choose. Do remember to hike up to teh church and to teh very top of the castle fortress for spectacular views of the Bay of Kotor.

There was building work being done on the street leading to the South Gate exposing water course running below the level of the street but care had to be taken.

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.
