If you visit any church in Kotor's Old Town put this one at the top of the list. It was built in 1166 as a Romanesque basilica on the site of an earlier 9th C church. Inside are a number of interesting architectural features, and you can visit a treasury on an upper floor. Scenes from St Tryphon's life are... More

If you are in Dubrovnik, consider renting a car for the day and driving to Kotor. Montenegro is beautiful and charming, inexpensive, and loaded with great sights like St Tryphon. Tons of relics, beautiful old frescoes.

One of the few historical sites in Kotor old town. Catholic Church with relics of St Tryphon. Well-kept museum. 3 euro to enter. Can easy skip it though, if you're short on time

Kotor's ancient cathedral dominates the city centre and is well worth a visit. There is an entrance fee of €2.50, but that also covers the small but interesting museum. A beautiful, peaceful place.

We were fortunate to start our visit to Kotor with a 30 min walking tour, where the guide helped bring to life the cathedral, pointing out the differences on the towers, explaining the dates on the front, and messaging the traditions with pride. The cathedral is small compared to many others we have seem, but is charming and interesting. The... More

This is an interesting Baroque building with paintings by local artists of the 17th century. There is a museum up stairs which houses many interesting artefacts and reliquaries.

Neat church on the main square. St. Tryphon holds relics and history in a still-used small cathedral. There are remains upstairs and interesting religious pieces. Make sure to go upstairs and walk around the whole sanctuary to catch all the things on display.

It was clear that this church is part of an active community. The building is of brick rather than stone, and has been restored after the 1979 earthquake. As far as I can see, St. Tryphon is rather legendary (see the Wikipedia article rather than the Orthodox hagiography) but that does not detract from the building, nor form the upstairs... More

This was the only church open on our Sunday day trip to Kotor. Enjoyed the inside of the church- had a different feel than a lot of old churches. Small fee admitted you to a museum upstairs and a balcony looking out to the square.
