St. Nicholas Church in Kotor, Montenegro

St. Nicholas Church is Serbian Orthodox, a denomination founded in 1219. Most of its members are in Montenegro and the neighboring countries of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina. This view of its façade and two bell towers is from St. Luke’s Square. Above the pediment is the Siberian flag and inside of it is a mosaic of Saint Nicholas. Nikolaos of Myra was born in the 4th century in modern Turkey. His propensity for helping others gave rise to the tradition of gift sharing on December 6, the anniversary of his death.
