An Orthodox church was built quite late inside of the city walls of Kotor. It is a church of St. Nicholas, built in 1902, on the foundations of a church that was originally built in the seventeenth century but destroyed in the nineteenth century. The Church of St. Nicholas was built until 1909, and its designer was the famous architect Cyril Ivekovic from Sarajevo. The church was built in Byzantine style, along the walls of the old town. The church is located on the Orthodox Square, next to St. Luke's Church and is visible outside the old town. The church has two large bell towers.
Inside the church, the iconostasis is the work of Czech masters, which was completed in 1908. There is a liturgy in this church every day, and it is the only Orthodox church in Kotor where rituals are performed daily as well as baptisms and weddings. On the church itself is a large flag of the Serbian Orthodox Church.
St. Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors and travelers in Boka, so it is understandable why this church is of great importance to all people and seafarers from Boka Kotorska.
Admission to the church is FREE
Opening hours of St. Nicholas Church are from 08:00am to 9:00pm
