I only had half an hour in this tiny island so I took a quick peek at the church and visited the museum for 1 euro. Found interesting items like household items, a chest and many art pieces & paintings in there which is worth a visit. There's also a small souvenir shop within. It costs 5 euros to cross... More

Visited as part of a boat trip from Kotor. We had about 30 minutes on the island which is enough time to look around and appreciate the views of Sveti Dorde and Perast.

Once in kotor, you have opportunity to visit every part of Boka Kotorska Bay, and honestly-every place is beautiful, and full of history. This was a one hour short excursion for 15 Euros total from Kotor by boat. Very nice to see. When we entered Church, there was a ceremony on going, so we listened their unique singing . It... More

Everyone who visit Kotor should also visit small town Perast, with his lovely stone houses, museums, restorants and take a boat trip to little island and see church Gospa od Skrpelja. There are every 30 minutes boats that goes to and from the island and its not expensive for tickets. Entries for the museum is 1 euro.

Visited this Baroque-style church while on a Celebrity Silhouette cruise. We were on a guided excursion and had private access to the church which is fairly small and can get quite crowded. The interior is amazingly beautiful and rich in history. While there is no fee to enter the church, you do need to pay for a boat ride to... More

This is a tiny island right opposite Persat. Apart from a church there is nothing else. We went there by a water taxi. They charged 3 of us for 10EUR and return. I think this is the best deal to go than to join a boat tour. We spent 20 min on the island and took beautiful pictures of the... More

This little island just off coast of perast is beautiful. It is spiritual & very calming. Once back on the waters edge in Perast I couldn't draw myself away. With beautiful back drop of the bay of kotor. Have lovely postcards to remember this place. It filled me with emotion that I will never forget.

This tiny church is located on a tiny island right across from the little village of Prerast in the Bay of Kotor, and the only way to get there is by water taxi, or a boat. There are many boat tours that go on tours of the Kotor Bay that usually go around the island from which you can see... More

This is a tourist stop on any Kotor Bay itinerary. The island makes for very good photos. It's blue top with light colour end brick contrasts well with blue skyline and water. The island has some lore associated with it and military significance. The main road passes on both sides of the church. There are boats to go out to... More

Nothing to dislike. An extraordinary place that must be visited while in Montenegro! It is in Perast and you can enjoy some of the terraces first and then go to explore this unique place filled with faith and art.
