The museum is worth a visit. Friendly welcome. Beautiful church objects, icons and church clothes. The church itself isn't fantastic so spend little time there and straight to the first floor

Small but delightful and full of treasures. But this place did not satisfy my usual fascination with ecclesiastical oddities because I didn't know what I was looking at. The museum at the top is so well displayed and full of all sorts but while each exhibit it numbered, I didn't know where the explanations were. Maybe ask before you go... More

One of the most important sacral object in the Balkans is the st. Tryphon Cathedral in Kotor. There is a couple of Euros fee, but it realy worth it and see the Museum.

A Roman Catholic cathedral renovated not too long ago, built on one of the cute little squares of Kotor old town. It was made by stone, perfectly fitting the architectural appearance of Kotor old town. This is one of the two Roman Catholic cathedrals in Montenegro.

This is well worth popping in. It costs about $2.50 but there are many Romanesque jewels inside like frescoes painted in the rounded arches.

One of the spots, I visited during my stay in Kotor, was this Roman Catholic Cathedral. It is pretty well saved and preserved, like, in fact, the Kotor Town itself. When we speak about Kotor, it is surely one of the most beautiful medieval fortified towns in the Mediterranean. The architecture design belongs to the Romanesque style. There is a... More

Although there is a small entry fee, its worth having a look inside the Cathedral. There is an interesting display upstairs, however the exhibits are not labeled so its hard to understand the significance of some of them.

Nothing spectacular but an overall pleasant experience at a fair price of both of the church and its religious artifacts. There is a nice rooftop view of the main square of the Old City. Worth waiting for the various guided tour groups to move along - they tend not to stay very long.

I do not agree with churches that charge admission fees that are out of line with any other local "attraction" and are exorbitant. That's how I feel here. I stayed outside and looked at the color books for sale and satisfied by curiosity. I have seen hundreds of churches and cathedrals all over the world and they do begin to... More

St Tryphon Cathedral is a must see when visiting Kotor. Its impressive façade leads through to an amazing 12th century Romanesque church with Corinthian columns and a gold and silver altar screen. The whole interior is so light and the 14th century frescos are beautiful- how it must have been when the interior was covered with these frescos and now... More
