Kotor Northern Gate before sunrise | Kotor, Montenegro

,

You have probably already seen my photo of the Sea Gate of Kotor, Montenegro, which is the main entrance to the fully walled Old Town, located in the western part of this Adriatic Sea port. Now I give you the other one – the Northern Gate.

 

The Northern Gate of Kotor

Built in the 16th century as a memory of Kotor’s victory over the well-known Turkish admiral Hajrudin Barbarosa, it’s impressive that the Northern Gate is still in excellent condition.  As typical for medieval times construction, next to the Kotor Northern Gate there is a moat with turquoise water.

 

The Gates of Kotor, Montenegro

So, I already mentioned (and photographed) the Sea Gate of Kotor and let me only add that it has also been built in the 16th century, while the city was under Venetian rule. There are two more gates, leading to Kotor Old Town – the Northern Gate of Kotor and the Southern Gate, which is bigger than the Northern one.

I chose this spot in the valley under Saint John’s Hill for my photo session because it offers a clear view to Kotor Fortress. What Daria and I did that day was to go up on the walls and walk around. I highly recommend you do such walk next time you visit this beautiful Adriatic Sea port.

Sumfinity.com presents the hub for my works. I write about my impressions on my trips and during taking the photos. I try to provide you with insight into my artistic life, but the focus is always with the pictures. It fills me with pride when I see that my photos are sometimes viewed by approximately 150,000 people within 24 hours. I imagine that I can give all those people at least two seconds of pure pleasure. That’s 80 hours of happiness! In a world which is dominated by sad, upsetting and dismaying news, I’m so glad to be able to create a small counterpart.
