Exactly 461 stairs lead to Jezerski Vrh, which is located at an altitude of 1660 m above sea level, where the Mausoleum dedicated to Petar II Petrovic Njegos was opened in 1974, making it the mausoleum at the highest altitude in the world at the time. The location of today's Mausoleum housed a humble chapel which Njegos constructed in 1845 to be his eternal resting place.

It took us a drive of 1u30min from Kotor, we had to avoid cows on the road, paid €3 each, took exactly 462 stairs, but what we saw on the top was one of the most beautiful things we ever saw. You can see 80% of whole Montenegro from each angle, including the capital Podgorica. Pay attention for lots of... More

Took the scenic drive up from Kotor, wife was not impressed about all the hairpin bends but the views of the bay eventually won her over. The steps up to the Mausoleum were something of a trial for those not regular participants in Iron Man Contests but being an overweight 50 something I managed it with a few stops. The... More

Lovćen is mostly known by Njegoš's Mausoleum. The location of his tomb on the top of this hill was chosen by Njegoš himself. The design of the mausoleum was made by world famous architect Ivan Meštrović. Today for the Montenegrins Lovćen is the same as Meka and Medina is for Muslims. And also a MUST for a tourist visiting Montenegro.

I really recommend taking a rental car and drive through the national park in the mountains around Kotor. The mausoleum is located on a peak from where you have a fantastic view. The mausoleum itself is not that spectacular but the scenery on the way there definitely is.

Despite remoteness of this monument it is well worth to see it and then take a accomodation in village Njegusi and eat some local cheese and prsut with sip of wine Vranac. Monument is impressive and has some kind of good vibe in it.

High up in the mountains of Lovcen national park is this really special monument that is architecturally astounding. It stands in stark contrast to the surrounding rooks of the barren mountains. It is the final resting place of one of Njegos, one of Montenegro's most famous historical figures. The climb is a steep one up a seeming endless number of... More

We have visited the National park and the Mausoleum in mid November. We rented a car, and it took us approximately 30 minutes to get to Cetinje city, and than additional 15 minutes to get to the National park Lovćen and Mausoleum (from Budva). For entering a park there is a fee of 2 euros per person, and for entering... More

The road up the hill is narrow but not too bad coming from Cetinje. Given the fact that it's a national monument, it's very strange that the parking possibilities are so poor. However, once you made the ascend and found a parking, the view is breathtaking; well worth the trouble. The surrounding national park is also beautiful and I understand... More

We are keen hikers and hiked our way up to the Njegos Mausoleum. the effort getting there was worth every moment. The Mausoleum was stunning and truly breath taking. Way paid 3 euros to go inside and was given a booklet in English telling us about it. We finished by heading out the back to the viewing area, although the... More
