Enjoyable trip by boat to the island. The history of the building of the church is quite fascinating. Must visit the museum. The church is beautiful and you can see why people travel from all over the world to get married here though I should think not too large a group as space is at a premium.

Lovely little island, boat journey is great. There are ladies in the church itself giving some information. Rest is up to you, we probably only spent about half hour here to see everything.

Exclusive quite and relaxed place not far from the shore. You can swim there but počal people will not be happy as you will not be dressed properly. Is it kind of local church.

Arrived with several groups at a time but everything went quite smooth. The church is on my top 10 list of catholic churches on the Adriatic coastline. Its interior decorations and history just leaves one deeply impressed. The hightlight of the museum is the imbrodery of a lonely lady, Hyacinthia who stitched her love for her missing husband into every... More

We anchored nearby for lunch on June 20, 2015 and toured the church and museum afterwards. Admission was only one Euro each for the museum attached to the church - well worth it. The young man collecting the admission fee gave us an extensive guided tour of the church and the museum. Without him it would have been just an... More

For a small price of 5 Euros, you will be take on a round trip journey from the harbor of Perast to this island monastery in the middle of Kotor Bay. The monastery is small and not too impressive. What is impressive is the journey to and from the island. It is such a pleasant journey.

Very nice artificial island in marvelous Boka bay. Across Perast nearest. You can be taken by boat also from Risan. There is an icon which was made by a women from her hair while she was waiting for her husband to come back from sailing. While she was making it she got blind. Some very nice paintings are found inside.... More

This is a must visit church but it is not really in Kotor. It is located in Perast which could be reached on a taxi within 30 minutes. Go listen to the magical history behind the church and look at the impressive collection in the church.

I am so glad we made it out to this beautiful and historical church in Boka Bay. We had a great guide even though it was through a ship tour. The artwork and handiwork of the church was amazing. Very glad we took the time to go here.

My wife and I saw this island from the cruise ship as we sailed into Kotor. I thought to myself, if we have time we are going. As it worked out we did go out to this island and if anyone is in Koto, I would strongly recommend taking the time to visit this little island in the bay. It... More
