This small church is situated in a small square that is easy to find in Kotor. The church is in the middle of the square. Built in 1195, it has been through many transformations and has survived all the changes in Kotor and even survived an earthquake that damaged many other structures in town. It has been used for both... More

There are so many churches in old town, we enjoyed the ones we visited. St Luke had a something special.

A small church found when you walk around Kotor, it isn't worth a visit for itself but worth checking out if you intend to enjoy a walk around the city.

The church of St. Lucas is absolutely charming, and was probably my favorite church in town. The very small twelfth century church is predominantly Romanesque in design, but there are Byzantine elements as well. The tiny church contains two altars and the floor is paved with the tombstones of prominent citizens of yesteryear's Kotor. An 18th century side chapel dedicated... More

Take a quick look inside this unique looking church. Quite a lot of churches in this beautiful little town. Setting is magnificent with the fjords just behind. Beautiful old buildings all around.

We poked our heads in to see this tiny church, to be welcomed by a friar gesturing us to come inside. He continued reading his newspaper as we soaked in some sanctity. I found a selection of very beautiful silver crosses here, at reasonable prices, and bought one for a grandson who is reaching a responsible age. This little church... More

St. Luke (St. Luka) was built in Kotor in 1195 when the population was almost all Croatian Catholic. The interior of the church including its frescoes, altar and furnishings conform to the Catholic rite. When a large number of Orthodox Serbs came to Kotor, the Venetian overlords gave this church to them including a new altar and icons to serve... More

What a great atmosphere inside this house of worship. The mournful sounds of the chanting in the background create a surreal atmosphere. It is an active place of worship and should be treated as such but is well worth a short visit.
