Perast Guide

Perast

Perast is an ancient city in Montenegro, located on the shore of Kotor Bay of the Adriatic Sea, a few kilometers north-west of Kotor. Perast lies at the foot of St. Ilya Hill, on the cape that separates the Risan Bay from the Bay of Kotor directly opposite the Verige Strait, the narrowest part of Boka. Perast was as at its peak in the 18th century under the Republic of Venice, as a powerful maritime centre. The village is known for its iconic silhouette of towering Venetian Gothic buildings. Historic stone buildings, seaside promenade and the 600-year-old Lady of the Rocks island are under UNESCO’s protection. Visiting Perast will make your lifetime memories

What to see

Perast is made even more idyllic by the two island churches that float offshore. One, Saint George (Sveti Đorđe) is a Benedictine monastery, the other, Our Lady of the Rocks, is a Catholic church and museum that will leave You speechless.
