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.

Worth the climb!

The climb was long but well worth the effort!! Magnificent views! I suggest paying the extra euros to go in but mainly to get access to the other side for the view!

From this location, you can have an awesome view as long as no cloud. Parking was a little difficult as had to park further down the road and walk up. Once arriving at lower lookout we started our accent up the steps through the tunnel and to the Mausoleum. A very spectacular monument and tomb that was constructed in the... More

Definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Montenegro. I'll admit I was slightly worried about all the steps as I'm super unfit and had already climbed up to Ostrog monastery in the morning, but I needn't have worried as they were even and wide enough to allow people to over take. We arrived later afternoon to avoid the... More

I visited Njegos Mausoleum on two occasions, mostly for the view! The Mausoleum is nice and has a great history, but sitting on the hilltop with breeze in my hair was even better. Not too crowded, and restaurant/bathroom available on the ground floor. I wish I'd had more time to hike the surrounding park.

The Mausoleum itself is a long staircase away from the parking lot. National hero Njegos certainly gets his hommage in this Mausoleum. Interesting architecture, but the main attraction is the views from the panorama deck. You can see Albania in the southeast, Croatia and Bosnia in the northwest, and the question is how far away the mountains are in the... More

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!
