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

You have to make a wish and trow a penny in the well of wishes :) Statues of girls and women holding the mausoleum on their heads is amaaaazing! They represent each girl or women in Njegos's life, mother, sister...

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
