Saint Tryphon’s Cathedral in Kotor is one of the oldest churches in Europe and the oldest in the former Yugoslavia. It is 69 years older than the Virgin Mary Church of Notre Dame in Paris, and 460 years older than St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. It was built in 1166 on the remains of the previous temple from the IX century.

Cathedral of St. Tryphon is a representative exemplar of Romanesque architecture with elements of Byzantine architecture. Through the time the cathedral changed its appearance but after the horrible earthquakes has been always restored. During each renewal were put new interior elements of architecture in the spirit of the time when is work performed. It is particularly noticeable the influence of Renaissance and Baroque elements.

The most notable elements are two different bell tower rebuilt at different times. Primarily bell towers and facade were destroyed during the earthquake in the 1667th. It is built new bell towers of different heights. North bell tower is 33m high, and the south one is 35 m.

In church there are frescoes from the XIV centuty and it is rich with the works of local and Venetian goldsmiths from the fourteenth to the twentieth century.
