Lovćen National Park reviews
We were part of the tour group '360 Monte' & glad we weren't driving & could take in the breathtaking scenery. The Petar Petrovic Njegos Mausoleum is a must see for the beauty & audacity of building..... more »
Wonderful view from the mountain top to the Bay of Kotor. There is a lookout on the top where you can take photos. more »
It was worthy the detour! For those who drive there, it’s quite hard to park around there, loads of people, very narrow but not dangerous as such. Not a great driver myself, i managed ok so I recommend to do it. The walk up there is nice too and doesn’t require huge physical strength.
I love the design of this monument, and the view isn’t bad either!! The parking is nothing short of insane though. There are like maybe spots for ten cars, and when we were there, there were about 100 cars trying to squeeze up and down the narrowest one-way street. Good luck!! There are bathrooms you have to pay a few coins to use but they’re very clean and nice.
