Exactly 461 stairs lead to Jezerski Vrh, which is located at an altitude of 1660 m above sea level, where the Mausoleum dedicated to Petar II Petrovic Njegos was opened in 1974, making it the mausoleum at the highest altitude in the world at the time. The location of today's Mausoleum housed a humble chapel which Njegos constructed in 1845 to be his eternal resting place.

Tough road to take all the way up to the 2nd highest peak in Lovcen National Park. Would have liked to voted 3.5 as it was better than average but not really very good.

Situated at 1749m a visit to Lovcen National Park would not be complete without a visit to this outstanding mausoleum. Perched on top of a mountain with far reaching views. You can either drive or hike to the summit. We hiked from Monte Rosa Hotel...More

Our apartment manager in Kotor recommended we take the 25-hairpin turn road up to Cetinje and the Lovcen National Park. The only problem is that the road is under construction and partially blocked by landslides. We were detoured onto a stretch of pavement that was...More
