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.

If you come in Montenegro you must visit Njegos's Mausoleum on Lovcen. Great peace of history. The people who work there will give you great lesson of history which will help you to understand Montenegro culture. Great view on Boka Bay and Montenegro coast. 10+ for customer service.

Remember, there is an entrance fee on the top, bring cash. And from the parking spot there is hundreds of stairs to reach the mausoleum and the view point. All is worth it. We arrived in the evening, before dark, and the view was something out of this world. One of my highlights of Montenegro. The mausoleum is massive and... More

beautiful drive up through national park, then good climb through tunnelled stairs to come out on peak with vertiginous, panoramic views. Spectacular Mausoleum well worth the visit. disappointed that having paid to enter the park. when you walk into the mausoleum you are accosted to part with more money, takes the edge off the whole ambiance. nice restaurant with terrace...

I enjoyed the hike and the 461 steps...though i was breathless but that was from the views and the sculpture!

Stunning! Amazing! Absolutely worth visiting when you're around Kotor or Budva. You can take a taxi from the bus station in Cetinje, not advisable to drive if you're not used to mountain roads. Hundreds of steps to get to the top but you will be amazed.

It's an effort to get here, lots of hairpin bends and about an hour from Kotor, but it's an impressive building and the views are stunning. Sure there are 460 steps but it's not steep and it's very safe. Plenty of space to rest if necessary. We're 2 out of condition 50+ travellers and managed easily. We paid 100 Euro... More

Lovcen - Famous Montenegrin mountain and even more known personality from Montenegrin history Njegos, bishop poetry and monarch. Beautiful view of Boka bay and the " stone sea " of Montenegro. lots of stairs to climb, but the view is breathtaking. Personally I didn't prefer the tunnel stairs so l choose the old mountain path

We were amazed by the beauty of this place. It is on top of the mountain about an hour of driving away from Kotor. You can come by car at the lowest point of the mausoleum and after that you have to pass 461 stairs to the top where the mausoleum is placed. When on top you can see about... More

We really loved this place! Based on the top of the mountain in a national park, this mausoleum seems like something out of this world. Specially because all of the sculptures from Ivan Mestrovic. And the view was amazing!

Maybe the wierdest mausoleum I've visited. A lonely place on top of a hill, where a long and slow but very scenery ride takes you. Take care that you have time to enjoy the view on both way up and down. Our guide chose the other way down, meaning that we saw a wonderful canyon and river full of lily... More
