Below is the gate we walked through to get into the old town.
The very thick gate entrance had some interesting carvings inside.
Yes, that clock tower is slightly leaning. Apparently earthquakes are pretty common in Montenegro and a more recent one damaged the clock tower.
St. Tryphon was the biggest, most grand church we saw in Kotor.
Just like most old cities, Kotor had some long, narrow alleyways to walk around.
St. Luke’s Church is shown below.
The highlight of my time spent in Kotor was walking along the old city walls up the hill looking down over the city. There were a lot of steps, but the view was amazing! Below is a picture of the path we took up, up and up!
The view doesn’t get much better than that!
An old church we stumbled across on our hike of the city walls. You can do a much larger hike, but we stopped once we got here. The views were great and we were on a time constraint.
St. Michael’s Church back down in the town. There were so many churches scattered about the old town.
St. Nicholas Church, which we actually went inside.

Check out the moat surrounding Kotor!
Kotor was a really great old city to wander around. There were cats everywhere and the hike up the hill overlooking the city was amazing. After Kotor, we hopped in our van and heading to Budva.
