The cathedral's museum/treasury and its main altar with its silver and gold relief of saints were very good

This small little church is packed with Relics and beautiful works. Stop, pray and go upstairs and see the relics and the museum. Behind the Altar is a fantastic silver ICON.

Everyone sees St. Tryphon Cathedral in Kotor whether or not one pays the 2.50E entry fee to visit its treasury/museum. For us, St. Tryphon Cathedral wasn't just a photo stop on the square in front of the cathedral, but a visit of about 30 minutes. The twin limestone towers, connected with a balustrade loggia/porch, were very notable as they were... More

If you're wandering around Kotor you should spend 2 euros (adults only) and visit the church and the museum. Probably worth for the latter to get some supporting material at the entrance because there are no labels, just numbers to the objects. There are some beautiful Christ's statues and an overall pleasant cathedral.

We really enjoyed visiting this cathedral. The interior brick and stone work contrasting with the painted walls sort of makes the interior of this church stand apart from a lot of the other cathedrals we have visited. Not overly large but did have some pews you could actually sit down at for a while if you wanted to. Looked to... More

It is a good and interesting place. At the second floor there is a church museum. From the terrace you will have a view to the square in front of the church.

The facade of St. Tryphon Church is impressive with its twin towers facing the square. Inside the brick and mortar combination have a decorating quality that enhances a rather sparsely but nicely decorated church. To get a real appreciation of Kotor, please visit this church

This cathedral is one of the most interesting ones we have visited. It will take only a few minutes of your time but it is worth it. My husband especially like the stone work in the columns that was left bare. He said it felt like the workmen just finished their work and went home. At the time there were... More

This cathedral is the largest of the region. St. Trifone is the martyr patron of the city of Kotor. The cathedral nowadays is actually a museum.

While only a minority of Montenegrans are Catholic, this is a beautiful church that we were able to visit. While it has an historic exterior, the interior is the real beauty. The pulpit and alter cover were of interest as well as the artwork. Still the best artifacts are in the upstairs museum. Also there is a great overlook on... More
