What to Expect

This trip is intended for all who want to visit the biggest cultural and historical sights of Montenegro. You will see a very specific relief covering the entire central region.

It may seem to you that Cetinje fell into the deep sleep, but it just rests after its long turbulent past, which began in the 15th century. In the center of the town, you will see the bequest of the most important Montenegrins, Petrovic Dynasty, wich ruled the country over 200 years: Biljarda, King Nikola’s Palace, Monastery of Cetinje…

The Ostrog monastery is not only an Orthodox sanctuary, but it is also visited by followers of all religions throughout the world, who come here to pay homage to the relics of the Saint Vasilije, in search of a cure for their body and soul. After the tomb of Jesus Christ and the Mountain Athos, the monastery of Ostrog is the third most visited shrine in the Christian world.

Come to visit these cultural and historical treasures with your friends or family:

  • Biljarda - residence of the bishop
  • Monastery of Cetinje
  • Visit to the King Nikola Palace
  • Delicious, authentic food from this mountain range
