Saint Lucas Church is easily recognizable in Kotor by its outer appearance. Sitting in the middle of a square, this small church looks ancient with its grey stone blocks, blotchy with black algae, and 3 small bells grouped together atop the entry way and over 2 narrow slits for windows. From the side of the church's exterior, I could see... More

This church is quite small and the outside is rather plain. However, the inside is quite impactful with worn pews, the tastefully decorated altars, the artifacts and art present a lovely package. In addition, it is quiet and provides a spot to rest or spend a moment in prayer. Entry is free. Don't miss it.

It is easy to overlook this beautiful but small church on the same square as The more impressive St. Nikola. However for its history and simply beauty step inside for a view moments. It's quaint, quiet and personal and has some very nice art work in its icons. Also there was a priest there in full dress to greet visitors.... More

Lovely small Serbian Church of St. Luke. Very nice iconostasis and Icon of St. Luke. Just to the right of the entrance there are remnants of frescoes on the wall.

Dating to 1195, this early Christian church is amazingly well preserved, especially in an area that knew wars and earthquakes. View the old relics and ancient paintings -- true works of art especially considering how they've lasted into this century. Very spiritual, very historic. Just amazing.

The Church of St Luke is very cool from a historic perspective and I definitely don't regret visiting it, but it is very very tiny. Definitely peek in while you're passing by, but I don't recommend putting a lot of time aside just to see it
