In the Boka Kotorska (Bay of Kotor) near Perast lie two small islands with churches on them. One, a natural island, holds the St. George monastery and its church. The other island, which was created by the locals over a period of many years, contains the church of Our Lady of Skrpjel (also called Our Lady of the Rock), as well as a small museum. On July 22nd of every year, the residents of the area bring rocks out to the island in a procession of boats to commemorate the island's construction.
