One of the oldest churches in town, built in 1195. It was originally a Catholic church but from the mid 17th century was handed over to the Orthodox community. The catholics managed to retain their altar beside the orthodox one and the two have coexisted ever since. This little church sits in what is known as Church Square. It is... More

This is the smaller but older church in the same square as St. Nikola Church. It was very small but worth a quick look. Some may not like the fragrance from the candles (or incense) burning.

Serbian Orthodox church St. Luke's Kotor Montenegro. The Church of St. Luke, the main feature of St. Luke's square, is a late 12th century church with Romanesque and Byzantine elements. This well-preserved church has two alters - one for Orthodox use and one for Catholic use. Only fragments of the original interior frescoes remain.

Enjoyed seeing this small church tucked away in one of the town squares. Very pleasant viewing the eastern orthodox icons.

Small, cool, and very much worth it while walking around Kotor. A nice find, without most of the cruise ship tourists you get around some parts of Kotor.

This medieval church situated in heart of old city has it's own charm that is seen in the color and texture of materials of which it has been made of. Lovely guidance made this visit perfect

I know the guide books said St. Luke's was small, but I was shocked to see how small. It really consists of just one tiny room inside and outside it hardly fills a corner of the square. Nevertheless, it is beautiful in its simplicity. And really ironic that this was one of the few buildings to survive the most recent... More

Little church that seems beautiful but you must pay to enter and visit. I do not like going into churches and feel pressured to give money, so I limited myself to peek inside. Which is very sad. It would be much more interesting if the priest's attitude was different. It's preferable to let each one decide whether to give money... More
