“Great atraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

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.

“Beautiful Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

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 the church.

“A little gem in Perast, Kotor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

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 main land on return. There is one toilet in the island. So be prepare for a long queue.

“Surreal tranquil little island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Church Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

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 the church, but to go inside you must take a water taxi.
There is literally nothing else on this island but the church, so you wouldn't need much time there - unless you want to stay and swim :)
