There were several churches tucked into areas of Old Kotor city, and St. Luke may have been the smallest. Charming and on the edge of a square. Locals and tourists were dancing there, enjoying their lunch break and the great weather!

It is well worth stopping and spending a little time in this lovely little church. Very peaceful inside despite the hustle and bustle of the tourists outside..

This is quite a small church with a sort of outhouse containing further murals. There’s not a huge amount to see inside but it’s worth a look as it’s free and right next to St. Nicholas church.

Well worth looking at - it is tiny but very beautiful with icons etc covering the walls. There is also a side chapel.

This small and beautiful church deserves to be admired during your stroll through the Old City. The square around this church is quite picturesque as well.

This small church which surprisingly enough can be found in St Luke's Square may not look like much on the outside but it makes up for it on the inside and is well worth a visit.

Originally a Catholic church built in 1196, then for centuries a combined Catholic-Orthodox with 2 altars, and then gifted to the Orthodox in 1812, while not as stunning as other churches, holds a power of reconciliation and shared faith. Worth the visit!
