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 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

We left Kotor and followed the signs to Cetinje. Before long, the road starts to twist and turn in a series of hairpin bends and before you know it, Kotor is a toy-town way below (there are a couple of spots where you can pull over to take photos). Keep going all the way up this road, and you will... More

First of all do not get put off by reviews saying the road is difficult - it is a mountain road so yes, it is windy, but it is wide enough for two cars, and people drive carefully. We struggled to find any signs for the mausoleum from Cetinje, but in the end it was just the road for Lovcen.... More

The mausoleum is built on top of the mountain in Lovcen Park. Access to it requires a pretty diffcult climb of some 460 steps only to find out , at the top, that there is a fee to enter the mausoleum itself (eventhough the person in charge at the entrance to Lovcen Park said the entrance fee includes the mausoleum)....

A must see place! The stair climbing might be a bit hard for the elderly, but what comes on top is totally worth it! Definitely a 5 star location ! :)
