Description

High in mountains next to Niksic, you'll find the Monastery of Ostrog, the biggest Montenegrin pilgrimage site built in 17th-century where you will find the remains of St. Vasilije Ostroski. The holy relics of Saint Basil can be found in the lower church of the upper monastery. Ostrog Monastery was built by natural and human interaction, carved almost in its entirety in a vertically positioned mountain cliff. There is not much written evidence about the process and time of construction, but looking at it now, it is a really amazing piece of human work difficult to imagine being done even today with modern technology. This monastery, carved in the mountains, is high above Bjelopavlici plain. The most impressive part of the monastery is Upper Ostog where two small churches are built, upper small church dedicated to Saint Cross and lower dedicated to the Presentation of Mary. This sanctuary is one of the most visited orthodox pilgrimage sites in the world. It is a spiritual center of Montenegro and also a place for pilgrims to gather of various faiths and religions of the world. This breathtaking destination will fill your soul with high elevated feelings of devotion and reverence to God. After the monastery visit, go to Rijeka Crnojevic, for sure the most attractive part of Skadar Lake National Park. While visiting Rijeka Crnojevic, you will have many photo opportunities as well as a lunch break, a great opportunity to taste the most delicious fish soup, fish and wine. During the 19th and early 20th-century, Rijeka Crnojevic was the biggest Montenegrin port and leading shopping center. Due to its uniqueness and exquisite taste, dried bleak was one of the most popular products in this area, especially at the Italian table. Pavlova strana is the place found on most of the postcards from Montenegro, certainly most impressive during the May October period thanks to its vegetation - blooming water lilies, just adding to the beauty of this magnificent place. That is where you will have some time on your own, as well as the chance to walk around and enjoy yourself in this peaceful area.
