#26 of 104 in Things to do in Kotor
The 16th-century Northern Gate was built to commemorate Kotor's victory over Hayreddin Barbarossa, a famous Turkish admiral. The entry represents a fine example of Renaissance architecture. The little bridge across the Skurda river offers views of the medieval fortifications. Just next to the gate, you can stop at a small fish restaurant with indoor and open-air seating.

  • "Fukuhara Tor" In the past, a major marine trade, their Venetian notmai before lol. The city is surrounded by a high wall ornamentation that has a length up to about 5 guys by the outside wall will be a "moat". Wide enough. Dude is considered a bulwark against enemy invasion comes with built-in lol. This city has a number of inhabitants, only a small number of very much. Tens of thousands of primary Haven city is quiet. In a season when there are no tourists, lol. But if the season roadkill, most tourists arriving by boat, it has a huge yacht and cruise at a city lot, this dude is like in the natural environment of the Gulf Co Tor and a unique town.
