  • Amazing historic orthodox church. The art and icons are truly wonderful. Has a beautiful atmosphere in the centre of the must see stunning city of Kotor in Montenegro .A must do as it's quite near Croatia !
  • Kotor Old Town with it's churches and narrow streets is simply breathtaking. In my humble opinion - much better than Dubrovnik 😉
