Directions to Cetinje Monastery
During its existence, the monastery has witnessed many events that turned out to be significant towards the fate of Montenegro. It has been burnt many times by the Ottomans, but each time it would be renewed by the Montenegrin rulers. In the 18th century, metropolitan Danilo Petrović renewed the monastery after being totally destroyed after the attack of Mahmut Pasha Bušatlija by building a new one across the site of the first location. The monastery was the place where the first printing house at southern Slavs was transferred, nearly after its foundation. Also, the first primary school in Montenegro was built here. Cetinje monastery served also as a mausoleum to the Petrović dynasty and Prince Danilo and his family have been buried in it.
Today, Cetinje of Monastery represents the seat of the Metropolitanate of Montenegro and a symbol of Montenegrin spirituality, freedom, and enlightenment. Many sacred relics and objects are being kept here; some of them are the right hand of St. John the Baptist; the remains of Particles of the Holy Cross; the Royal Crown of King Stefan Dečanski and others.
The monastery is open for visits.
