Beautiful Interior

This is a nice little church which can be visited for free. While not a must-see location, it is definitely worth a few minutes of your time in Kotor.

Small but beautiful church in the cold walled city, one of many that you can see in a few hours of walking

Kotor is a beautiful old town that has a surprisingly large number of well preserved churches. I would consider this a small to medium sized church. No pews so easy to walk around. The icons are in great shape. It's very clean. Access is free.

Stopping at St. Nicholas church just adds to a wonderful time browsing this quaint, "cozy" village like small town. Inside is beautiful and speaks to how important this place of worship is to the people who live here. Pride and care show in their lovely old church and it was a pleasure to enter such a place.

When we went into this beautiful old church, they appeared to be holding mass and there was the singing of a choir coming from somewhere inside the church. Iy was surreal to be in such a present experience within such an old city. Like many European churches, there is no entrance fee, but ladies are not permitted to enter with... More

Although the tiny church is not all overly accessorized the icons are well loved by local faithful. It doesn't take much time, but is sure is worth it.

As you wander around Kotor, you will come across this small church with open doors for you to go in and enjoy. It's a nice little church which only take you a few moments to walk around and enjoy but worth the view. We were not hassled and did not feel like we were intruding like you do in some... More

St. Nikola Church is steeped in atmosphere. Staff was on hand to welcome visitors and to burn incense in front of various Icons and relics. Candles were blazing and the clouds of incense filled the vaulted space. This church was built in 1902 and replaces an earlier Serbian Orthodox Church which stood on the same spot and was destroyed by... More

An Orthodox church in the middle of this quaint town in St. Luke's square. It is named after St. Nicholas and supposedly, there is a bone chip of St. Nicholas enshrined here. Quite different in appearance from the other churches in the town. Note that there are no pews, but rather a lot of walking around room.
