The palace is in fact now a Museum, name after the poet Andrija Zmajevic, born in Perast. I love particularly the stone balconies with their shape under a sunny day. Every our a public bus stops a few meters from it. (1€/ to Kotor)

Perast is a very small town and this has to be one of the highlights. Very nicely appointed museum set in the old house/mansion/palace of a Montenegrin sea captain. Exceptional collection for such a small establishment and very friendly staff who wont hesitate to answer questions about the pieces. The view from the balcony out over the two islands in... More

Perast is a very, very small village. U can walk from one end to the other in 15 min. On the land you can visit this "palace" and a church with a tower that gives you a great view of the whole place. On the water you can only visit one of the 2 islands, the trip is between 5... More

Restaurant in the middle of embankment is rather... More

We enjoyed our visit to Perast museum. It was amplified enormously by the young woman staffer who offered to guide us through it and explain everything. Interesting collection of artefacts, part of the complex history of this part of the world.

It's a fairly small museum, with slightly old-fashioned displays of ship-models, paintings, weapons, the furniture of great Perast shipping families and so on, which give an idea of how the town used to be in its heyday. What's more you get the opportunity to see inside one of Perast's wonderful old palazzi, from the days of the Venetian Empire. As... More
