    Cetinje Monastery
    4 more images

    Cetinje was founded in the 15th century and it was the royal capital of independent Montenegro from 1878 until 1918.

    It offers a rich cultural and historical heritage, especially from the 18th and 19th century.

    The main sight is probably Cetinje Monastery, which was founded in 1701 and destroyed several times by the Turks.

    Other sights include the Vlaska church, the Church of the Virgin Mary's birth at Cipur, the Blue Castle (Plavi Dvorac) and several former embassy buildings.

    Directions:
    Cetinje is located about 30 km west of Podgorica, just at the foot of the Lovcen mountain. It can be reached by a frequent bus connection within 45 minutes. A taxi costs between 25 and 30 Euro.

    Lake Skadar is on 15 or 20 minutes west from Podgorica by car and has plenty of romantic restaurants and magical scenery, like something out of dream.
