KOTOR ORTHODOX CATHEDRAL
The Cathedral Church of St. Nicholas was built on the site of a Dominican convent which burnt down in 1896. The Church was constructed between 1902 and 1909 and took over the role of Orthodox Cathedral from St. Luke's Church across the square. Unusually the Cathedral is oriented south-north due to the surrounding buildings not allowing for a standard east-west layout.
The Church has a very typical southern Orthodox layout with three domes, including one large central one very much like the Cathedral of St. Nedelya in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Inside is one of the Balkans most impressive iconostastis.
