As a licensed tourist guide I do visit this place more often than other people. However it never stopped fascinating me.

The exterior of the Cathedral gives you a size comparison to the buildings all around it. Some churches we couldn't even find, but this is the pulse point of old town. The interior is not so elaborate you are blinded by the busyness. It is quiet and very beautifully decorated.

We loved walking around the quaint little town of Kotor. This cathedral is right in the middle of the town and such a lovely site.

Nice cathedral to view in the middle of city whilst on your meander round. A good photo opportunity but not much to really get involved in once here. Nice to check out on your way round.

St. Tryphon Cathedral is a beautiful church with a great history dating back to 1124. Its location is very picturesque - definitely worth a visit.

The church interior is not very special, but the city sure is. The surroundings are beautiful Walk up to the balcony to even have a nicer view. The altar holds a silver box with the skull of St.Tryphon

The Basilica of St. Tryphon was begun in 1124 and finished in 1166. Romanesque in style with Byzantine elements, the cathedral was heavily damaged during several earthquakes and rebuilt. The basic plan of a nave and two side aisles survives. The main altar with its golden altarpiece is stunning. The art of the goldsmith work is a testament to the... More
