“A Living Church”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

It was clear that this church is part of an active community. The building is of brick rather than stone, and has been restored after the 1979 earthquake.
As far as I can see, St. Tryphon is rather legendary (see the Wikipedia article rather than the Orthodox hagiography) but that does not detract from the building, nor form the upstairs museum or treasury which is worth visiting. If you are in Kotor this is definitely not to be missed.
I might add that a few of the photographs in the gallery seem to be misplaced.

“Interesting Cathedral”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

This was the only church open on our Sunday day trip to Kotor. Enjoyed the inside of the church- had a different feel than a lot of old churches. Small fee admitted you to a museum upstairs and a balcony looking out to the square.

“Wonderful Cathedral”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Beautiful Cathedral. There is a fee (cant remember how much) but worth it. t was not very much, but you get to see some very nice exhibits up stairs and you get a nice view of the main square. I love old churches and this one is well worth the visit.

“Enjoyed”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

We enjoyed the peace and quiet and seeing the interesting artefacts at St Tryphon. You can go upstairs for more exhibits and look down at the square below.

Not too expensive and worth a visit!

“a well preserved cathedral”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

For sure this is one of the most preserved (also went through several restorations during the centuries) catholic churches in Montenegro. It was damaged several times by the earthquakes but however it still has the roman style. Located in the middle of the Old Town turns this cathedral in number one spot in Kotor. Also the museum is very interesting. St. Tryphon grave is in the base floor also.
