Description

The tour starts with a meeting in the port of Kotor or at the address you specify. We go to Dub, where we start the cable car ride. During the cable car ride you will have the chance to enjoy amazing views at Kotor, Tivat and whole bay. You will go from 65m to 1350m above sea level in only 11 minutes ! After that we continue our trip to village Njegusi. In the village of Njegusi, which is located between Kotor and Lovćen National Park, we will discover authentic Montenegrin culture and cuisine. You can try and buy local products such as prosciutto, cheese, wine and another.The country was ruled by a bishop, prince bishop and serdar, who was responsible for defense. Both positions were passed down the family lines in the clans based in Njeguši, which made Njeguši an important place. After Njegusi, we will visit national park Lovcen and the Mausoleum of Petar II Petrovic-Njegos. Petar II Petrovic Njegos was more than just the Prince-Bishop of Montenegro. He was a philosopher and a poet, and beyond that, he was a beloved political and cultural leader. We will pass 441 steps and we will reach the most impressive part of the mausoleum, the chapel that has 6 sides..The statue of the ruler was made by the world-famous sculptor Ivan Meštrović.This artistic masterpiece is made from a single piece of granite, which originally weighed 50 tons!When the statue was completed in 1974, it was 4 meters tall and weighed 29 tons.The ceiling is covered with 200,000 gold pieces that together produce one huge gold mosaic weighing 18 kg.When we leave the mausoleum on the opposite side, we are offered a bird's eye view of 70% of the entire mountainous and rocky area of Montenegro. When we finish sightseeing the historical and traditional part of our country, on the way to Kotor we enter the world of untouched nature, the old road from the time of the Kingdom of Montenegro. It is a road that calls for adventure, and the story of that road hides the legend of one love. Referred to as the ‘serpentine road’, the road has 25 switchbacks and gives you incredible views of the Bay of Kotor. Namely, on the part of the road from Kotor to Trojica, there is an M-shaped moat. According to the story, the young engineer Josip Slade-Šilović had the task of designing a modern road for cars from Kotor to Cetinje after the Berlin Congress in 1878. This designer from Trogir was later a palace builder, and with the letter M he allegedly showed his secret love for the Montenegrin princess Milena. The Montenegrin writer Jovan J. Martinović also passed on the joke of the people of Cetinje, which was created at the expense of this letter M. 'And imagine if he accidentally fell in love with Princess Olga, this journey wouldn't end without a fiddle.
