Church in Old City

We did not go in so not sure if if is open to visitors. There is another church nearby, St. Clara, that is beautiful and was open. Be sure to light a candle.

This is a very small church next to the town's cathedral. It may go unnoticed by many tourist because of the contrast of its location. The building is beautifully simple in the inside, the outside calls your attention, specially when you go around it. It was built in 1195.

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.
