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.

one should not expect to see an impressive mausoleum but climb the steps because ot the view. There are far to much steps for the summer heat in montenegro, but you can rest on the sides near open windows after each section. The view from above is worth the efford. Stairs are not advisable for small children or elderly. I... More

It is said that the whole country of Montenegro can be seen from the top of the Lovćen Mountain. It's partly true. The view from the top of the mountain, which is near the interesting Njegoš Mausoleum, is simply magnificent. Breathtaking! You'll feel like you're on the top of the world, literally. When the weather is fine you can see... More

Just go there! You will have the most beautiful view ever! From the mausoleum you will see the mountains around as small hills. It is amazing! And the mausoleum itself is beautiful and worthy.

It's quite a long drive from cetinje but not particularly hairy - when you make it to the top though (including 300 or so relatively easy steps) the views are staggering with a sea of mountains in every direction. This should absolutely be on your Montenegro itinerary of you have a car (which is a must to see everything this... More

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.
