“Amazing views of the fortress”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

This is the prettiest entry into Kotor old Town, its little bridge over the moat has the most wonderful views of the town fortresses which can be climbed (if you are up to it).

“Nice pice ofhistroy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

Kotor is a great place considering how the people build the old walls and so on. This gate is part of that surrounding walls and is is very good condition.

“Nice gate to the Old Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

The Old Town of Kotor has several entrances into the city - the main gate opens up to the port. The Northern gate is at the side. It's one of the nicer entrances surrounded by water and huge stone towers. It's lovely and a great picture opportunity. The only not so nice thing is that the water below sometimes has a bad smell, and one can see things thrown about - it's a shame really.

“Picture Op”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

The gates are an interesting photo op with its relief and signage. It's difficult in the high daytime to get a picture without other people standing in front of the gate. Kotor's walled section is not that big and seeing all the gates should take no more than one hour as you wander the streets. The biggest time draw will be how much time you spend in souvenir shops.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

Be sure to check out all of the Gates to the Old City. This one was our favorite. During our visit we asked a local where to eat and they sent us to "Fortuna" a small eatery a few minutes walk from the Old City and across from the Mall. We felt like natives eating at this popular inexpensive restaurant away from the tourist crowd. Ask anyone for directions they all seemed to know it.
