On a number of occasions, I have mentioned Stari Grad, the Old City of Kotor. This fortified city has about five kilometers of walls. I began my walk at the south entrance, made my way through alleys to the Cathedral of St. Tryphon and back to the main piazza. This piazza is called the Piazza of Arms because it is close to a former Viennese armory. From the piazza, I walked down another alley past the Church of St. Clara and past the church of St. Nikola to the northern entrance. Enjoy the journey and the sights.
These next two images are from the main piazza with a picture of the inside of the primary gate leading into Stari Grad. It had been raining earlier and the scene appears gloomy. However, the temperature was close to 60 F.
This narrow alley leads us past the two churches I mentioned earlier.

I am a university professor with interests in the relationship of food and culture. I am also a Fulbright Scholar and will deploy to Montenegro in September, 2014 where I will collaborate in teaching and learning about food and culture as well as food tourism. This blog is dedicated to sharing my experiences in Montenegro with you. It is also dedicated to my son Chad who mixes artistry and savvy in teaching people how to bake bread and make pizza.
