I recently have come back from a holiday to Dubrovnik Croatia, whilst there we hired a car for about £160 sterling pounds for the week, we went outcom several day trips and Kotor, Montenegro was one of them its just over an hour's drive from Dubrovnik. (dont forget your passport to pass over the border if your doing the same as us).

As you come down the lanes in Kotor the views are just breathtaking and photos do not do it justic, the mountains and the lake / sea (dont forget your camera).
Theres a lot of passenger chips that come into port here.

The old town has lots of interesting buildings / architecture, walking down the old streets and then you come across St Tryphon Catherdral, compared to the other buildings it stands out with its grandeur look.

Kotor itself in general is worth going to, if you were making a special journey to only see the Catherdral then id say your not missing much and why not spend a few more hours here have a walk around the shops take in the beauty of the views and buildings, stop and have bite to eat there's plenty of restaurants at reasonable prices (lunch and 2 beers for 2 we got for less than 20 euros and thats with a tip also).

Theres also a castle on the mountains you can walk up to ( have to be fit to get up there). Due to time we arrived we didnt do this as not enough hours left in day, (think you wud need full day here if going to visit castle thats taking in consideration walk up and down mountain and potter round castle and then explore Kotor, if we are back in this sort of area we would return and spend full day here so could visit castle as pose to just an afternoon like we did this time.

The Old Town of Kotor is extremely condensed and high on density so to come across this wonderful church in the centre on the square was really impressive. The two towers rising high above everything around it acting as a great historical focal point. I briefly looked through the doors but did not enter and instead admired the structure from outside. The square outside was filled with visitors and all around there were cafes and restaurants where you can site and have a bite and watch the other visitors go about their business. A really delightful square with the church standing proud. I believe the church dates back to the third century and that St Tryphon was a martyr for Kotor. If you are in the old town then you will undoubtedly at one point end up at the square and will be able to view this building to see how wonderful it is.

Along with the gorgeous Church itself, the ticket allows you to visit the exhibition dedicated to the Treasury, lots of nice religious artifacts on display. Conveniently situated on a marketplace bordered by cafés and restaurants.

I would say that it's a church with a lot of history behind it and for the locals it's the largest and most important church in the area. There is no doubt about that. It's significance because St.Tryphon is the patron of Kotor.
But for me it doesn't mean so much. It's just a beautiful structure, old enough, but it was destroyed so many times, that nothing remains from the original church.
The architecture of the building that used to be the Town Hall, is interesting and there are some artifacts that catch the eye, but not so many.
I don't regret that I visited it, but at the same time it's not something that will be in my memory for ever.

We have seen so many churches in our extensive travels, but we never fail to find something fascinating in any one of them. St. Tryphon was a martyr from the 3rd century and is the focus of this cathedral. It is located in the old square and close to eateries and shops. Inside are many interesting paintings, relics, etc.
