We have seen churches of all varieties on this month-long trip. The story of how the island was created by fishermen dropping rocks into the water made this an interesting stop. There are nice original paintings on the walls and a small museum upstairs. The church was less interesting than I had thought it would be.

We found this small island fascinating by it's history. Here is a small church, giftshop and some limited space to walk around and take in the views. But undoubtely the best views were from afar with the mountains as a backdrop.

One of the most picturesque islands to be found. It was artificially created on 22 July 1452. According to a legend, fisherman from Perast, after a shipwreck near the island, have found a icon of the Holy Mother of God with the Christ on a sea rock. They vowed to build a church on the island. It was built in 1630. Every year on that same day, the locals row over with stones to continue the task, so that tradition is alive even today.

The church on the island itself is nothing really too special from the outside, but the inside offers truly unique experience, and a testament to the maritime history of this nation. Gives a great view too of the surrounding environs, and the story of how this bit of land came to be is also one worth hearing.

You can take a small motorised boat out to the island from the mainland which takes just a couple of minutes. The small church is beautiful but be aware of the large number of tourists there.

Fantastic site to visit while in the Bay of Kotor. The overall church itself is charming and quaint. The history behind the church is very interesting, I'd recommend getting a tour guide (or maybe you have to) to walk you through the church. When we visited they controlled how many people entered at once and kept the crowds moving so I presume there are tour controls in place. There are plenty of artifacts to view on site and it offers stunning scenery from all around the man made island.
