We did not go in so not sure if if is open to visitors. There is another church nearby, St. Clara, that is beautiful and was open. Be sure to light a candle.

Small quaint church with frescos and iconic images. It only takes a short time to visit it, only normally open for special occasions, but during the summer due to the amount of visitors. Entrance is free, photos can be taken without flash. Remember the orthodox rules that during a service, women should be on the left hand side of the... More

St Luke's Church (Crkva sv. Luke) is relatively small, but worth a few minutes to look inside. There are some modern Russian paintings of the Apostles, which dominate the entrance. Entry to the church is free.

This fine, old church transitioned from Catholic to Orthodox and remains a testament to the ability of the two faiths to peacefully coexist. Only remnants of the frescoes from the 1100's remain. There are two altars inside: a Catholic and an Orthodox one. The floor contains tomb panels of Kotor's citizens. The guide told us that burying was done in... More

The small St.Luka Church is located in the square which brings the same name. Built in 1195 originally as a Catholic church, in 1657 the Venetian authorities in charge of the administration of the city offered it to the Orthodoxs who found refuge in Kotor from the Turkish invasion. Nowadays, it is open only for special occasions such as marriages... More

Kotor is a sleepy little port-town with the opportunity to climb 1490 steps and or visit many Churches. As with most European Churches, the artwork is overwhelming. There are a number of Churches. I suggest visiting them all!

Located in the old town city center, it is very easy to drop into this church for a short visit which is all that one needs. Interesting architecture.

St Luke's is a 12th century church right inside Kotor old town. It is distinctive because of its 2 altars, for both Catholic and Orthodox pilgrims. Its altars are stunning though only a small portion of the old frescoes have remained. Nice to visit.

The small church of St. Luke dates from 1196 and has elements of Byzantine and Romanesque architecture. It is the only building in town that only suffered minor damage from the 1667 earthquake. Situated in the centre of the old town near the Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas, I found this one of the most charming sights in the old... More
