Republic of Montenegro Off The Beaten Path

  • Montenegro Croatia or Albania?

    I was in Montenegro in September 2008 and can say that if youavoid the touristy places there are still many off the beaten track places to discover. With regards to Croatia it is much more developedbut also more expensive and camping outside of designated camp sitesis forbidden whereas not so in Montenegro within reason.Montenegro's coastline...

  • Njegusi

    Njegusi is a small village above the Bay of Kotor and below Mount Lovcen in Lovcen National Park. The village is well known all over Montenegro for its food, especially its ham - the altitude in Njegusi is perfect for air drying the ham and gives it a distinctive flavour. All shops and restaurants in this tiny village sell Njegusi ham - look out...

  • Driving the Lovcen Pass from Kotor to...

    The journey from Kotor to Njegusi via the Lovcen Pass is probably the most spectacular trip in Montenegro. Starting from sea level at Kotor you ascend to the Lovcen Pass as 1000 metres, via a series of switchbacks along a winding but safe road. As you climb the views along the way just get better and better, with the whole Bay of Kotor opening out...

    Sleapy, green, peacful...There are some nice walking tracks. One of them leads to tthe mountain Lovcen.The tracks are well kept and signed.Don't miss the home made bread in the local restaurant.

    more
  • Njegos Museum inside

    Original things that were used by Royal Familly. How different from anything else I saw from that period, for example, in West Europe. But this simple surroundings is in the big contrast with very rich (briliant) mind of the people who lived here.

    more
  • Visit the Negos Museum

    This small Museum can show you the way of life of the people of Montenegro a couple centuries ago. This is also a house where great Njegos was born.

  • Visit old romantic village of Njegusi

    This road would lead you to here. The village is known as a bitrh place of Petar Petrovic Njegos, the greatist poet and ruler of Montenegro. Try some great local food once you are here and enjoy ! (don't expect some fancy restorants...this is the village at the end of the world:) )

  • Try the old road from Kotor to Cetinje

    You will be a bit scared by the nerrow and curvy road but, I am sure, amaized with the view and the beauty of the surroundings.

    more
  • Take a safari ride into the mountains

    We visited the mountains in the north of the region.Our trip to the top of the mountains was by jeep - not for the fainthearted! There are no roads as such, just paths and tracks through fields - all at steep angles.... good job our drivers were experts!The mountain peaks reach over 2,000m and, even when it is hot on the coast, you need cold...

  • A pleasant introduction to Montenegro

    Perast is a quaint town well worth visiting if you're heading down from Croatia en route to Kotor or beyond.With beautiful islands, and a relaxed atmosphere, it has a Venetian-style character that makes it a decent place in which to break any journey . . . pic attached.

    more
  • Tiny town of Perast

    The tiny town of Perast is worth a short stop (you won't need much more) to relax on its quiet water side. You can also visit the 'Lady of the Lake' - two small islands off the coast which were apparently formed by locals dropping stones there annually in a sort of ritual that lasted 600 years. The whole process was sped up by a large number of...

    more
  • Perast

    A lovely little coastal town that has the feel of many of the coastal towns in Croatia except a bit more empty. I spent a couple of hours walking around and buying postcards. It is just down the road a bit from Risan.

    more
  • A Monument

    An interesting war monument (is there any other kind in Montenegro) just on the outskirts of Trubjela.

    more
  • Lice

    Just a funny town name that we drove by. There is almost nothing there but if you are on your way to Durmitor Park it is worth taking a picture. Lice is located just west of Durmitor Park.

  • Mother Russia and Sister Greece

    Passion. Almost everyone will say this: “Mother Russia” or “Sister Greece” (in Serbian, both Russia and Greece, are female nouns, Rusija and Grcka). It is love dating from the centuries. Probably ‘cause both of them are Orthodox countries and they always helped to us, during the wars or embargos.

    more
  • Lights

    Driving with the lights is not obligatory. You have to turn them on “from sun set to down” as one policemen told me.

    more
  • Serbian Orthodox Church at Sveti Stefan

    All villages in Montenegro have one or more Serbian Orthodox churches, and the island community of Sveti Stefan was no exception, even though it is now a hotel.

    more
  • Countryside in Montenegro

    The countryside in the Montenegro mountains was unforgettable. Wild, imposing, unpenatrable, hauntingly beautiful, all at the same time.

    more
  • Old Church in Cetinje Monastery

    Located in the St. Petar of Cetinje Monstary complex is a Serbian Orthodox Church known as the Church of the Nativity of the Mother of God. The icons inside date back to the 1800s.

    The raft is made of logs and it is rowed by brave and skilled people who used to transport timber in the lower course of the river in this way.

  • Tara river

    Tara is the second largest canyon in the world after Colorado. At some places, it is up to 1300m deep. Its banks are steep covered with a forest rising from the canyon’s cold and depth.

    more
  • Ice Cave (Ledena Pecina)

    Ledena pecina (the Ice Cave), located under the peak Obla Glava, 2100 m above sea level, represents the fascinating natural phenomena. It can be easily reached, by the marked mountain path. One can enjoy its “museum” of stalactites and stalagmites, even in the summer.
