It was very nice and I lit a candle. Let's hope wishes come true and then I'll change the rating to a 5/5 ;) now that would be a totally awesome trip to the church :P

Unlike other old catholic churches, this one offers a bonus in form of a museum upstairs. The history behind this church is also worth the reading. Additionally, you also get a great view of the piazza below. You should not miss this if visiting old Kotor.

Yes, you will have to pay a small entry fee but this helps to keep its religious feel as the other churches are much more commercialised and have lots of salesmen inside. There is a nice vantage point from the balcony and there are interesting artefacts on display although no explanation of what they are which would have been nice.... More

Very rude attendants...too commercial. If you just want to say a prayer you have to pay to enter. Not a place I recommend.

It's honestly nothing more than just another church with some church-connected items on display. I don't recommend wasting 2,50 Euro for that

Very nice big church with plenty of ancient artefacts inside for viewing. It costs 2.50E to enter and change is preferred. Nice views of the square from the balcony. Not to be missed.

This was an outstanding building to see from the outside. It sits in the old town of Koror at the base of a mountain. It was disappointing that there is a cover charge for entering a church.

My visit to St. Tryphon Cathedral was a facinating experience in faith and history. Inside the cathedral you can see a mixture of Western and Eastern religious art. I went on a tour of the cathedral's museum, and while there, the Catholic Bishop of the area happened to be passing by. He stopped and greeted me and welcomed me to... More

St. Tryphon Cathedral is one of the two catholic cathedrals in Montenegro. This one has interesting architectural exterior and interior. Furthermore, St. Tryphon Cathedral is one of the oldest in this part of Adriatic. So, don't hesitate to visit this beautiful cathedral, you definitely won't regret.
