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.

Beautiful monument to a poet clearly well loved by his country.

Wasn't sure if the mausoleum would be accessible so late in the year, but we were allowed in (the staff member had to come up and unlock for us!). The mausoleum is simply... read more

Wasn't sure if the mausoleum would be accessible so late in the year, but we were allowed in (the staff member had to come up and unlock for us!). The mausoleum is simply furnished, but beautiful nonetheless. The real prize for us was the view from the top, amongst the clouds. There are a solid number of stairs to climb... More

Really worth the journey especially given that the drive up the zigzagging mountain road from Kotor is, in itself, an adventure. The restaurant on site was also good which was unexpected.

The mausoleum itself is clearly a Montenegrin thing but the journey to and the views from this location are breathtaking. The climb up the 430 steps is hard work due to the altitude and steepness of the steps. The mausoleum is interesting and an amazing sculpture but the star attraction is the view from the platform. Soak in the air... More

This is really an unique experience. Mausoleum built on a high mountain inside a national park, where you have to travel not easy road by car (or taxi) and then climb 400 stairs. Also pay the entrance fee (3 euros), of course. The best on this visit are the views on the mountains -perfect! The mausoleum itself is small, but... More

This is one the most breathtaking places to visit in Montenegro. Beforehand, read about this man, the Montenegrin national hero and leader, so you will understand why he is so revered and why the people have elevated him so. His resting place is one of the most beautiful locations in the whole country. When driving from Kotor, if you are... More

Try arrive early in the morning when there are less (if any!) people. The view is amazing! Admission to the mausoleum is not included in the price of the national park but well worth the 3 euros! A taxi to take you to the mausoleum and then back should cost no more than 20 euros.

At the top of Lovcen Mountain, 1560 meters above the sea level and after more then 400 stairs you will find a breathtaking place. If you coming to Montenegro you should pay a visit to this place definately. Don't miss that.
