When you enter the old city from main gate (Sea Gate) this beautiful symbol of Kotor welcomes you on The Arms Square. It started to built in 1602, unfortunately tower was not finished when the first earthquake in 1667. After the earthquake the Tower inclined towards the west, and after the 1979 earthquake it returned to the same position again although it was fixed between 2 earthquakes.

Clock Tower is, practically, first attraction to welcome you right after your first steps to the Sea Gate into the Old City of Kotor. Sometimes is very crowded in front of it, all tourists stopped for photos there. Especially when the cruise ships docks and many tourists come to Old City. Itself it’s an impressive piece of architectural work measuring time over the centuries. And the clock is quite working very well.

Truly the Clock Tower is an architectural wonder and hard to miss. Surrounded by restaurants and souvenir shops, it's a real photo opportunity. My family and I had a short stop off in Kotor whilst on a TUI cruiser and we all enjoyed the visit.

You can see the clock tower once you enter the sea gate of Kotor old town. Clock tower was the most popular meeting point before smart phone and handy phone appear. And there is a little tower before the clock tower, it called the Tower of Shame. Because many years ago, there is no prison in the old town. So people punished by standing in front of the tower. Interesting, don't miss it.

The Clock Tower is one of the symbols of the Old Kotor. It occupies a central place in the square opposite the main gate. Built in 1602, this tall tower looks down on an unusual stone pyramid. It was once a pillory of shame for wayward citizens.

After the 1667 earthquake the tower leaned towards the sea. Later there had been some attempts to put it back in an upright position but after the 1979 catastrophic earthquake it returned to the same position.

Do not forget to get time update in front of this architecture art, and take the road to the souvenir shops, definitely buy the famous goat soap for juvenile look.
And a cat t-shirt for 10Euro printed in front of you by selection.
Amber-themed souvenirs is a must have.

This is just as you walk into the old town and is a very pleasant area to enjoy and take photos. Not much to see, but worth a wander into town.

The focal point of the square is the baroque Clock Tower built in 1602 on the site of the medieval torture tower. The clock was added in the late 18th century. The ornate obelisk in front of it served as a pillory. On the façade is the crest of the ruling prince at that time. The tower can be seen as soon as you enter the Seagate (where cruise ships tie up) from where you walk towards the Arms Square and the tower. The tower (and Kotor) suffered from earthquakes in 1563, 1667 and a rather devastating one in 1979; that's why the tower is leaning a bit.
yes, I've seen far more beautiful clock towers but it's nonetheless a point of interest you should familiarize yourself with since it's very much part of the Old Town Kotor history. The Arms square has a few other historic buildings and some restaurants, etc. for your enjoyment.

This is where all the walking tours start and is always a crowded area. For this reason, I suggest seeing it from your balcony with a cup of coffee in your hand at the Hotel Cattaro
