This tour includes a visit to Lovcen National Park and Lovcen museum as well as picturesque small village Njegusi.
Njegusi – picturesque old Montenegrin village, between Cetinje and Kotor, is located around 900 m above the sea Njegusi. A special attraction is an old road from Kotor to village Njegusi, famous Lovcen’s serpentines, which consists of 25 turns and 25 km of the road. It is particularly attractive in summer when the temperatures are much lower than on the coast. This is one of the most beautiful vantage points from which one can have a view of the Montenegrin coast and – if the weather permits – even the coast of Italy. This village is best known as a birthplace of royal dynasty Petrovic which ruled from 1696 to 1918.
Njegusi were always known for their dairy products, smoked ham – pršut and honey. The famous Njegusi cheese used to be sold in Kotor, Primorje, Dalmatia, Trieste and Venice, Marseille and Malta.
Lovcen is a mountain and national park in southwestern Montenegro. It has two imposing peaks, Štirovnik (1,749 m) and Jezerski vrh (1,657 m). The mountain slopes are rocky, with numerous fissures, pits and deep depressions giving its scenery a specific look. Lovcen stands on the border between two completely different natural wholes, the sea, and the mainland, and so it is under the influence of both climates. The specific connection of the living conditions has caused the development of different biological systems.
The specific connection of the living conditions has caused the development of different biological systems. There are 1,158 plant species on Lovcen, four of which are endemic.
The biggest and most important monument of Lovcen national park is Petar Petrović Njegos’s Mausoleum. He was a Prince-Bishop (Vladika) of Montenegro, poet, and philosopher whose works are widely considered some of the most important in Montenegrin literature. The location for his burial place and the mausoleum at the summit of Jezerski vrh was chosen by Njegos himself as his last wish.
