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.

The mausoleum is situated at the very top of Mt Lovcen National Park and is about 500 steps up from the car park. Views are very good but not really much different than from the car park (admittedly we were there on a hazy day). The mausoleum itself is fairly small and only takes about 10 -15 minutes to have...

Monument dedicated to a famous Montenegrin poet and ruler Petar II Petrovic Njegos. Mausoleum is sitauated on the second highest peak of Lovcen mountain (around 1750 meters above see level). Fantastic view on Boka Bay, Cetinje, Skadar Lake, Njegusi and Montenegrin mountains. Before mausoleum on same peak was an Orthodox church built by Njegos himself which was destroyed during WWI...

This mausoleum is work to get to. You can drive to the parking lot but then there are at least 400 steps waiting for you. Climbing them is well worth the effort because at the top a really crazy view is waiting. The building is more impressive from the outside than the inside as there are no railings and it... More

The exterior of this museum is grand and charming. The interior is not as impressive, if one knows very little abour the Montenegrin Orthodox spirituality. I would like to have at least a few more explanations in English. The English speaking guide is a wonderful lady, who likes to share her personal stories with the visitors. We enjoyed listening to...

Lots of stairs, but still a relatively easy climb with one of the best viewpoints in Montenegro. The mausoleum itself is beautiful in its simplicity.

The road here is terrifying and you need to be a confident driver. It is extremely narrow in places. But well worth it for the mad mausoleum and the gorgeous view. The restaurant is basic and could do with a bit of a clean but generally friendly service and good food. Looks like a Bond lair!

For the small entry fee you can't complain, can spend an hour walking up the steps then paying to enter the mausoleum at the top, which gives the best panoramic view of Montenegro. If you've already gone all the way to the top of Lovcen, you'd be daft not to visit the mausoleum. The restaurant at the bottom of the... More

I was blown away by this mausoleum, it's a lot classier than it sounds! Stunning gold ceilings and fantastic views across all of Montenegro

This is a must when visiting Montenegro. When you're up, you'll be charged 3 euros to visit the Mausoleum: make sure you do as the building itself is quite impressive, but more importantly, it'll give you access to the viewpoint behind the building, and the views are simply breathtaking. If you're not part of a tour, it's not easy to... More
