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.

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

The mausoleum is in the Lovcen National Park, between Budva and Kotor. The best approach is through Budva and turn left following the brown signs for Lovcen national park. (Entry fee 2 euros) There is a road from Kotor which is best to exit the park, rather than go up although it does seem shorter. However the park is lovely... More

Firstly how to get there. The cheapest way for someone without a car is most certainly a local bus. Price wise it is almost nothing (3 Euros from Budva) and the buses run very frequently. Take a bus to Cetinje and get off at the bus station. There will be several taxi drivers there offering trips to the top. You... More

Don't come home without seeing Njegos's Mausoleum. There are very few places on earth that can see in 4 different countries at the same time. First of all, you'll need to show some effort to reach. Approximately 50 km from the city centre of kotor. At least 40 km of this road, dangerous mountain road. Then you have to climb... More

The mausoleum of the vladika (prince-bishop) Njegos on the top, built in communist time as a heathen temple to replace the older christian chapel is an experience in itself. But also for the view in clear weather is vorth the tip up there. The last part you must use a loooong staircase. This year, at the end of March, it... More
