About
A renowned difficult to access fortress, located about 10km north-east of Podgorica, Medun was erected between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC. Also known as Meteon, this ancient town was the seat of the Illyric tribe Labeata who ruled the Skadar basin. Today only some parts of the defensive walls are visible, and the town remains mostly belong to a medieval Turkish fortress. The fortress remains house St. Nicholas' Church, which was built in the 18th century, and this historic location is also known as birthplace of Marko Miljanov, Montenegrin hero and writer.

When you go towards Kolasin, at the exit from Podgorica there is a signpost for Medun - Kuci area. A good paved road leads to Medun, and the city museum itself is 13 kilometers away. There is a signpost, and it cannot be missed. The museum has a large parking lot, and is open every day from 8 am to 4 pm, the entrance fee is 1 euro.
Next to the museum is a fortress with a magnificent view of the entire area. You can climb the fortress in 5 minutes. The internship is very steep but secured by a good fence. The ambiance is exceptional, and the view is great.
This place is worth a visit. I recommend visiting early in the morning as there is no shade on the fort. If you do not want to visit the museum, then it is even nicer to visit the fortress in the evening.

A bit off from the main roads, arriving to the remnants of once architectural gem take one's breath away... I am here concerned about the section of the wall still present at the foot of the hill, south-west from the Miljanov house. Apparently, two isolated and out-of-wall megaliths that stand some ten meters from mentioned wall are from the well that lies more on the south-south-east section of the plateau. Officially, that type of masonry appeared in 4th century BC on central Balkan and its Adriatic parts. But, logic and other elements combined tell us that masonry of this type must be older than reccommended by official historians.

Great views on a clear day. The ruins are a bit underwhelming. But Medun is worth a stop on the way to Bukumirsko Jezero or just driving Panorama Route #4.
