Lovcen

Lovcen is an amazing mounting just above the Boka Kotorska bay (1749 m). This mounting is a symbol of freedom and “holly place” for each Montenegrin.  National Park is a stunning destination visited by thousands of tourists every year. The sea and high mountains surrounding the Bay of Kotor blend here, creating a unique mesmerizing and breathtaking view! Lovcen, is also known by its numerous viewpoints from which you can see almost all Montenegro. Wherever you look, you will experience a unique and unforgettable visual impression. On the top of the mounting, there is a mausoleum of Petar II Petrovich Njegos – famous Bishop, Poet and Ruler of Montenegro (1813-1851). Climbing the mausoleum (by 461 stairs) is a crown of the visit to the National Park.
