Fodor's Expert Review Sveti Djordje


Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

This natural islet is one of Perast's famous pair of islands. It's ringed by a dozen elegant cypress trees and crowned by the Monastery of St. George, dating back to the 12th century and still inhabited by monks. In the 18th century the island became a favorite burial place for local sea captains, whose crypts remain today.

The island is closed to the public, but you can snap photos from shore or neighboring Our Lady of the Rock to your heart's content.
