The city itself has existed around the XIII century and is considered the Montenegrin Venice. The gate was the only entrance to the old town, directly from the sea. The symbol of the Venetian Republic, the winged lion of St. Mark was once carved above the city gates.
Today, the same lion is carved into the city walls, to the right of the main city gate. The winged lion was replaced by a new coat of arms at that place, the coat of arms of Yugoslavia and the symbols of that time, as well as the date of the liberation of Kotor from Nazi rule – it is November 21, 1944. Above the date of the liberation of Kotor, there is a quote from the former President of Yugoslavia, Josip Broz Tito, which says: “We do not want others, we do not give our own.”
In the heart of Boka, at the bottom of the mountain Lovcen. It hides many cultural treasures that date back to the Middle Ages and give it the charm it has today. The city of Kotor carries with it many legends that are worth attention. Its power lies in the fact that it is both ancient and modern so that everyone can enjoy its beauties. Kotor is also known for cats because there are many on the streets so if you are one of those who love cats you can also have the pleasure to visit a pet-friendly city.
In front of the main entrance, there are two eternal tin cannons, which represent the symbol of the defense of this city. After the entrance through the city gate, in the wall, on the right is a carved stone relief of the Virgin and Child, then the figure of St. Tryphon, the patron saint of the city holding a model of Kotor and the figure of St. Bernard, with relics of the city in the Cathedral of St. Tryphon.
