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

Worth the drive up here and the walk up the last section. Not clear where you are meant to park and the track is very rough in the first section. The steps (who counts them) are also a work in progress with the new access almost complete. Not busy when we visited but can see why they need a proper... More

Even tiny states like Montenegro had great leaders and special people like Njegos . He himself asked to be buried there at the end of his short but impressive rule. An impressive way to remember a ruler in a striking beautiful scenery up the mountain facing an enormous monument of Nejegos. The fact that you climb 461 steps to reach... More

We were in Montenegro as a cruise stop so we can only choose to go up the hill to the Tomb of Petar II Petrović-Njegoš or go far to Budva. We chose to go up the hill and the view is breathtaking. Really worthy to get a taxi and go up the hill to admire the "black mountains".

I have visited this place several times over the years, it is beautiful and worth visiting. Views on mountains and Boka bay are great. it was said that during the clear morning you could see Italian coastline from there. Definitely worth visiting.

Getting up from Cetinje (700 m.) to Lovcen (1700 m.) takes some time on a narrow winding road at the end of which you have to climb 461 stairs to get there. But it is worth the trouble if you choose a clear day. The mausoleum itself is a strange half pagan memorial of bishop, ruler and poet Njegos (1813-51),... More

Amazing views from the top. The carvings at the mauseleum are fascinating - on top of a mountain?! The path from the car park was rather rough, but there were workmen working on creating a better pathway with many steps to get you to the top.

We reach this mausoleum by car form Kotor (take the serpentine road and you will have some marvellous view over Kotor and his bays). You have to drive across the Lovcen park wich is quite desert. You climb onto the top of a moutain where you discover à 360° view over montenegro. Stairs are rude. The mausoleum itself is nude,... More

We hired a private car and driver to take us from Kotor, along the "serpentine road" up into Mt. Lovcen National Park to see one of the most famous landmarks in Montenegro: the Mausoleum of Petar II, Petrovic Njegos, an important ruler of Montenegro and a poet and philosopher from the 1800s. The drive up the mountain is a classic... More

Great place to visit while in Montenegro. Spectacular view all the way until you reach the Mausoleum and from the top. Half of Montenegro could be seen and during the clear days even the coast of Italy. You should stop to have a rest and a drink at the restaurant.
