If what you are looking for is a unique and memorable experience that will give you the opportunity to learn about another culture through art, cultural events, historical places, and archeological treasures, a place to visit is certainly Lovcen National Park.
Among many places in the world where you can relive the past, this is certainly the most charming one. ‘Lake Peak’ is the second highest peak on Lovcen mountain, and on its glades lies a mausoleum, burial place of one of the most famous poet, country and church leader from 19th century, Petar II Petrovic Njegos. Keep in mind that to reach the top of the mausoleum you need to walk up to 461 stairs, but it is absolutely worth it!
At some point to the top, you will start to feel a slight shiver on your skin due to the beauty of the rugged mountains, a delightful view at an altitude of over 1,660m that reaches all the way to the coast of Italy and due to the spirit of glorious history.
The city situated beneath the summit of Lovcen mountain, Cetinje, was founded in 1482 and it presents a veritable living museum of Montenegro. Under the snow, Cetinje looks like the scenery of an good, old movie, but in the spring time, the smell of century-old lindens will be your everlasting memory of this city.
Architecture and historic simbols of Montenegro that shouldn’t be missed when you come to this eclectic town include the Cetinje Monastery, the Church at Cipur, the ‘Billiard Room’, the viewpoint at Orlov Krs (Eagle’s Crag), the palace of King Nikola and the local Government administration building.
Local cheese, smoked ham and glass of the local Crmnik wine abound in the many wayward stopping points that adorn Cetinje, will make you want to come back all over again.
