With its imposing bell tower dominating the central square, St. Nikola Church stands out as the most prominent landmark in Perast. View the ancient edifice, built in the 17th century but never completed, or step inside to admire its collection of old relics and vestments. Ascend the 55 m (180 ft) bell tower for an impressive vista of the picturesque Bay of Kotor. Keep in mind that the stairwell can get quite narrow and the ceiling is low. Make St. Nikola Church part of your personalized Perast itinerary using our Perast trip planner.
St. Nikola Church reviews
Located on the central square and the large bell tower is visible from almost everywhere. Its current appearance is dated from 1616 (after the reconstruction of an older church). more »
Just a very short walk from where you take the boat to Our Lady of the Rock is another wonderful old church with great art, etc. Worth a 20 min walk through either before or after your boat tour. more »
Terrifying climb with rewarding view at top of the tower. If they are charging €1 for entry, maybe some of that should be spent on safety...
Stunning, mind-blowing view from top of the church and entrance fee is only 1 Euro.
