Lovely little chapel. You must cover your shoulders but they have a basket of cloths at the entry. Didn't see the hand of the saint but it should be there!

Pleasant monastery comprising one small church but the relics that the place is famous for were not on view and apparently only come out on special religious days. Visit took 5 minutes total.

An attractive building from the outside, quite large with a tower. Unfortunately your visit internally is limited to the one church so will be very brief and none of the relics the site is considered famous for are actually available to see. No photos inside...More

We really love this place, very peaceful monastery sounded by many old trees in mountains. We went inside the monastery very lightly and did not stay long. The photo is not allowed in the rooms and there are requirements on dressing.

The people should show better approach to visitors. Not so friendly with other people that are as tourists

We did a day trip to Centinje from Kotor, caught the local bus for the 1.5 hour journey up the mountain, fare was 5 euro each way. The monastery itself is a rather unimpressive building, we enjoyed the town which is nice to wander around...More

We drove to the Mausoleum of Petar II Petrovic, via Cetinje, so we decided to make a small detour to see this building- it was worth the stop, but it is not a "must".

We visited Cetinje with a tour, and the monk responsible for the place immediatly asked us in a very rude way where our tour guide is (she was waiting outside), and then he screamed that our tourguide is a stupid village girl. I never experienced...More

I usually like church architecture and design, but this place hasn't rocked my boat. I haven't been inside though.
