Unlike as it seems, the small town of Perast is home to the tallest historic belltower on the Adriatic coast, or so they claim here anyway. It really is an enormous structure; I found it hard to fit all of in my photographs! Dating from...More

A climb up this beautiful landmark in Perast is not to be missed. The climb isn't easy but the views of Perast and the Bay of Kotor from the top are spectacular and well worth the effort. Admission is only €1. Time your visit well...More

The church is nice, but for €1 there are more rooms. One contains many priest robes (i dont know the technical name) and then there is is part of an older(?) Church with a beautiful sunlit alter piece and some other items.

The walk up is well worth the view, hands down. It was only one or two euro, so a total deal. It's old, filled with bird droppings, has some low ceilings, and requires someone smaller, nimble, and sure footed. Personally, I wouldn't take a child...More

This is a must do as the views are spectacular form the many levels from the bell tower. Entry is 1€ per person. The climb is up stone steps that wind up the tower and in some places does is a little cramped. Some level...More

St Nikola's church, on the waterfront, is the most distinguishable church in Perast, with it's bell tower visible throughout the tiny town and from the coastal road that passes above. It is free to enter the chapel itself, although there is a fee if you...More
