For those who want to feel the religious side of the Montenegrins and enjoy the panoramic drive with short photo stops and visit the Old Royal Capital of Montenegro in just one day, this tour is the right choice.
The tour begins with a panoramic ride through the Budva Riviera and a break for photos. On the way to the Old Royal Capital and the monastery of Cetinje, you can enjoy the natural beauty and see the remains of the fortress from the time when part of Montenegro was ruled by the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
In Cetinje, the city-museum, we will visit the monastery of Cetinje.
The monastery was built in the 17th century by Danilo Petrovic, bishop of the Petrovic dynasty. This is one of the most important Orthodox monasteries in Montenegro, rebuilt several times after the Turkish Empire attack on this old Montenegrin capital.
Here you will hear a story of historical significance for Montenegrins ...
After a short stay in this small unusual city, full of historic monuments, old embassies and beautiful monastery, the path continues to the Capital of Montenegro.
Podgorica, the capital, is seen from afar and announces the modern architecture of the 20th century. During the WWII, the city was bombarded more than 70 times due to which it was totally leveled with the ground.
Passing through the modern part of this industrial city, we will keep ourselves at the Temple of Christ's Resurrection.
The temple was built for 20 years and is one of the symbols of the city and certainly the pride of the citizens.
The background of the frescoes in the temple is gilded, and on the temple, among the 17 bells, there is the largest bell in the Balkans, heavy 11 tonnes…
After a while, we drive from Podgorica to Ostrog Monastery. During the panoramic drive towards the monastery, you will see typical villages of Montenegro and beautiful rivers. The closer we are to the hill, overlooking the mountains, you will see the beautiful monastery Ostrog into rocks.
