Description

Being very narrow and winding with its 25 serpentines this Austro-Hungarian Road represents a unique attraction and a perfect start to our Kotor to Lovcen tour. We will make quick photo-stops during our drive up at two mind-blowing vantage points above the gorgeous Boka Bay – at the 5th and 25th serpentine. From here, our private tour continues towards Lovćen National Park & its peaks. To conquer this “Sea of rocks,” we will drive through the National Park Lovćen and reach the well-known Lake Peak at an altitude of 1.660 meters (5446 feet). On top of the second highest peak of Lovćen sits imposing and officially the highest mausoleum in the world - where the greatest Montenegrin ruler and poet, Petar II Petrović Njegoš, rests in peace. After climbing 461 steps to reach it, we finally get to see a massive statue of the ruler made by world-known sculptor Ivan Meštrović. The ceiling inside the Lovcen Mausoleum is covered with 220.000 golden pieces that together make one spacious, 18 kg (40 lbs) heavy golden mosaic. As we go behind the Mausoleum, we will discover a bird-eye-view vantage point with the best possible view of, cca 70%, mountainous and rocky land of Montenegro. Time to capture a famous jumping photo! From Mount Lovcen, we go to Cetinje - an Old Royal Capital of Montenegro and a city of vast historical significance and the heart of Montenegrin culture and Orthodox religion, with its origins tracing back to the 15th century. A guided tour explores significant landmarks, including the Cetinje Monastery and the Court Church at Ćipur. From here, we head back to Kotor. Hidden beneath Mount Lovcen, in Kotor Bay, this jewel of the Adriatic is unmatched in its beauty, represented through the assimilation of different cultural influences whose signatures are more than visible even now. Join us on this walking tour and help us reveal all the town's secrets! In conclusion: Our Kotor to Lovcen tour is the perfect choice for anyone wishing to explore some of the most breathtaking landscapes in Montenegro all while getting in touch with the country's rich culture, history, and heritage.
