  • This place with exuberant visions has left us jaw-dropping! Amazing view! Great photos, it will be beautiful memories! An infinity of mountains, sea, nature! A great day of adventure! Very satisfying ride! I think that on site a lift could be built to climb on top, because the staircase is a pulled climb!

  • As with any mountain range, discovering hidden landscapes takes a little effort. This national park is accessible to all levels of hikers and the paths are well marked.

  • Just wonderful. Amazing views, but sadly there is a lot of trash laying around. There aren't any trash bins, just occasional trash bags but very very few. after paying 8 euros entrance pp I would expect a bit more maintenance.
  • There are no guides and nothing explaining what are you going to see. Although, there is a beautiful view and it's worth to climb one hundred and more stars to admire the panorama from one of the highest spot in Montenegro.
  • The drive up and the last climb are absolutely worth it. Apart from the impressing tomb of king Nikola, the vistas and views and spectacular.
  • nice place, beatiful view. you can see Skadar lake from there. Moreover, you can see borders of the country from there. Where Montenegro ends and Albania, Croatia, Bosnia start. better come here in the morning right after it's opened to find a parking place closer to the top.
  • Absolutely stunning wonder of the world. Pictures just cant do this park the justice it deserves. The drive up is being improved with a great new road towards the top part of the mountain, but the single-lane famous switchbacks are still part of the trek and are a fun and challenging test for all who choose to complete the trip.
