We popped in whilst in Kotor, expecting to see another beautiful cathedral - which we did. But up the stairs you'll find load of amazing artefacts which makes the trip feel like more of a museum - with load of silverwear, clothing, crosses and architeture on display. It was only 2 Euros each to get and was free entry for... More

Its two bell tower architecture is a nice welcome at Old City's entrance. A convenient meeting point for tours. Working church.

This is a great classic church in an old city. A visit does not take very long and costs around 2 Euros. The outdoor area upstairs between the bell towers provides good views of the square below.

Viewed St Tryphon Cathedral whilst on a cruise stop-off in Kotor. Chose not to view inside, due to the quite high admission charge. There are St Tryphon associated religious souvenirs for sale in the entrance. Not a particularly ornate building from the outside, but perhaps worth a viewing to those who enjoy church visits.

We drove to Kotor on a day trip from Cavtat in Croatia. A very easy journey with a straightforward border crossing. We visited the cathedral as part of a wander around the old city of Kotor. Simple interior but with some very attractive interior brickwork, stone columns, carved marble and lattice screen detail. On two levels with artefacts in cases... More

The Cathedral is said to be older than Westminster. You have to pay 2.5 euro to get in. The interior of the cathedral is quite basic. The most interesting part is the remaining of some frescos said to be painted in the 14th century. There are some interesting religious artwork on display (no English explanation) but nothing spectacular. To many... More
