DAY 1: JEWL OF MONTENEGRO
Gorgeous, unique divine beauty of the Bay of Kotor will leave you struggling for superlatives. It is hiding Montenegro’s best-kept secrets, cities full of history and local hospitality. As this bay enjoys more than 240 sunny days a year, you can really enjoy the warmth and natural beauty of this bay.
Hemmed in by commanding cliffs and shape-shifting between rippling gulfs and sparkling straits, the cobalt cove even manages to defy geographic description: is it a fjord? A submerged canyon? It seems there’s only one way to define Kotor Bay: unmissable.
During this tour you will have the opportunity to visit the petite town of Perast, the quietest town of Boka Bay. Even today, people are speaking about the richness of this region.
Palaces of Perast are now silent witnesses of the former size, splendour, and wealth of the town. The entire past of Perast is reflecting on them lively.
DAY 2: THE OLD ROYAL CAPITAL
Cetinje is a town of immense historical heritage, founded in the 15th century. It became the centre of Montenegrin life and a religious centre. It is because of its heritage as a long-term Montenegrin capital that it is today the honorary capital of Montenegro. Cetinje, located at the foot of Lov?en mountain, far enough and hidden from enemy sight, yet close enough and open for all friendly hands, is the museum city, the old capital of Montenegro for centuries, and origin point of Montenegrin spirituality and statehood. Patina of past ages on the faces of buildings contains messages from past times since its first days up to the forming of a modern European capital.
Its urban development, strongly connected with flows of Montenegrin history, has succeeded, on such a small space, to produce a unique architectural entity which reflects almost all eclectic styles from the end of XIX and the beginning of XX century.
DAY 3: RELIGIOUS MIRACLE
Ostrog Monastery, a miracle built by nature and human interaction, carved almost in its entirety in a vertically positioned mountain cliff, is today the pearl of Montenegrin spirituality which is visited by more than a hundred thousand pilgrims from around the world and of travellers of all religions every year. It is one of the three most visited Christian destinations on the planet with its cave-like chapel and the Monastery complex that preserves the sanctity of Saint Basil, the Orthodox Christian Saint of Miracles.
This beautiful, sacred spot that is of huge importance for Montenegrins, is a must-visit site whether it is primarily for religious, cultural, or historical reasons.
Our stop in return from Ostrog monastery is in Danilovgrad, about two kilometres from the very centre of the town, monastery complex Ždrebaonik comprised of a church, a big dormitory and several ground floor buildings. Ždrebaonik monastery was built in 1818 and it was dedicated to St. Archangel Michael. There are fragments of paintings from the church Sveti Vra?evi from Slatina and records of the construction of the church of St. Archangel Michael preserved ever since the Middle ages. Ždrebaonik women’s monastery is a great gathering place and at the same time a parochial church.
