  • Amazing structure. Incredibly beautiful. Road is fairly okay going up providing you have experience on small roads. Wouldn’t say there was absolutely loads to do at the monastery. However, we spent a good 30 minutes here walking around and taking in the views. Parking is right at the top with overflow further down. No photography allowed inside the monastery. Although it is free to enter.
  • Situated among the mountains in the very heart of Montenegro and very accessible to reach through the good quality roads. Its not only a religeous pilgrimage place, but also part of the human history that people worth/ have to visit during their life.
