A few minutes by car from Kotor, there is superb with a nice name Dobrota. There is St. Eustahije's church of the 18th century. You will notice its high belfry from a distance. Leave your car in a parking lot near the church and go down along the fence off bushy pink hollyhock, straight to a small pier. At sunset, here is an unrealistically beautiful view. It seems that this piece of Boka-Kotor bay completely vanishes in a shady purple haze. And colors, such beautiful colors! If to come here earlier, have a chance to visit the church.

 Каждый курортный город, поселок или район в Черногории на протяжении всего года, в основном, живет за счет туристов. Местечко Бечичи (район Будвы) также не является исключением из правил. Здесь множество гостиниц, всевозможных кафе, ресторанчиков и магазинов. Но, пожалуй, не стоит забывать о том, что предки местных жителей обитали тут задолго до того, как Бечичи превратился в популярный курорт. А это значит, что тут расположено огромное количество исторических и культурных памятников, достопримечательностей, а также духовных мест. Одним из таких мест является Православная Церковь Святого Апостола Фомы или, как ее называют жители Черногории, Церковь Святого Томе (Crkva...

The earliest references about the church date back to 1166. It's exactly the period when the Cathedral church was hallowed at the presence of the abbot St. Michael of Kotor, Petar, and so was the time the church was a constituent part of the abbacy. Unfortunately, the church has not preserved its original look. The present church is a small building with one nave, half-round apse topped by ogive, which looks more impressive thanks to arches reinforcing it. According to all indications the construction of this building was started at the end of 14th century - beginning of 15thcentury. Earlier there were bas-reliefs outside of the building containing inscriptions and various images, which eventually were substituted by replicas to insure long life for the originals inside of the church.
