  • We were lucky enough to arrive when a guided tour in French had just begun. Museum very interesting if we have a guide like we had. The visit lasts only one hour max because the palace is relatively small. If my memories are good, the entrance cost 4 euros per person. Children) under 5 at least do not pay.

  • Despite the proximity of Italy, Rome, the royal house (the palace is impossible to say)!, very modest, small, inconspicuous. The most offensive thing is that there is no way to get information. The captions under the photo are not informative, sometimes they just do not exist. I don't like the inscriptions on the Russian. There is also no audio guide. Even a booklet. That is, either the ynet or hire a private guide. The house itself is small, enough 30 minutes. The 6-year-old was very bored!

  • The former palace of King Nikola is charming because of the poverty of Montenegro at that time and the tiny scale of the royal palace, reflecting the nature of the country during its brief period of monarchy. It is on the scale of an elegant but cash-strapped English Victorian country house. There are family heirlooms, including paintings, weapons, clothes and photographs of Nikola, his family and relatives. The place is a curiosity and if you are in the former capital, worth paying the entrance price. There is no hard sell in the tiny souvenir area.
  • Very rich, beautiful museum. Representing one small country trought history, how people are living, the way how they lived and one person king Nikola what did for his country
