Perast is the gem of the bay of Kotor, and only a 20 minute bus ride away. The church certainly adds to the old town's charm, but be aware that in this town really doesn't come alive until the height of summer. In spring, for instance, there are so few things open that you'll either fall straight into the peaceful... More

Perast is a lovely place to sit by the water and enjoy the fantastic mountain snow capped mountains in January. It's a small place to explore but, has lots of photo opportunities. The tower is the main attraction in the town and also Our Lady of the Rocks.

The church is the main attraction here, whilst we didnt go inside we spent time admiring the view across the bay infront of the church. The town is closed to tourists for much of the high season and we were lucky to go through it in the first week it opened. Very picturesque and worth a visit.

The church locates just across the square where the boat tours from Kotor would stop by. For the people who wants to visit Perast cheaper, take a Blue Line bus traveling Herceg Novi to Kotor area. This big church has a nice clock tower. Inside, there is a big treasury rooms inside. It costs 1€ for the entrance, but you... More

This is the main atraction of Perast besides the two islands. The church is very nice and so is the tower. Be carefull when you climb the stairs in the tower because in some places you can hit your head, however going upstairs it's much easier than going downstairs. I gave 4 stars because they charge 1 euro for visiting... More

I was there in October and everything was closed. I arrived early in the morning, driving from Dubrovnik to Bar Montenegro. The small town of Perast is beautiful. Just wished i could have seen more. The town itself is worth a stop as it is very Picturesque

I agree with the previous reviewer - the view from the top of the bell tower is amazing! The stairs would be difficult for anyone who hasn't got steady mobility as there isn't a hand rail going all the way, and if you are tall you will have to bend your head a few times (esp when coming down). But... More

Amazed no-one has recommended this - pay one euro to climb the church belfry at St Nikolas Church - its a hair-raising climb and not for the faint-hearted due to the inadequate handrail around the central well (don't look down!) but the views of the bay, the mountains, the islands, the town and are absolutely amazing. Not to be missed,... More
