Perast is a small town located at the foot of Mount St. Elijah, and it was named after the Illyrian tribe Pirusti. Since its earliest days, Perast has been dedicated to the sea and maritime, and it is recognizable for that. Its long and rich history adorns this traditional place, painted with very contrasting landscapes, and every stone, street and house has its own story. Perast is full of churches, palaces, and chapels built between the 17th and 18th centuries in the Baroque style, and the sight gives the impression of another vivid time and elegance. It is recognizable for its two pearls located near the shore, the island of St. George and Our Lady of the Rocks, which also represent a treasure trove of culture and rich tradition. The Perast coast is full of traditional restaurants that give a feeling of peace because of the beautiful view of the islands and the distinctive sea scent. While people call it "a piece of Venice in Montenegro," Perast leaves its visitors breathless with its elegant architecture and unforgettable energy.
