  • In 1886, the last Montenegrin sovereign Nikola I Petrovic Njegoš began the construction of the new Church of the Court. That building, however, had to be demolished due to poor workmanship. The construction of the Church was restored under the supervision of the King in 1890. The church dedicated to the birth of the Virgin was built with white stone and the extremely valuable iconostasis was made by late 19th century Russian painters. At the end of the 80 archaeological excavations were conducted and were discovered the ruins of the ancient monastic complex founded by the Crnojevic dynasty. In this place ran the first Cyrillic printing press in the Balkans. In 1989 the Church of the Court became the mausoleum of the last Montenegrin King Nichola and his spouse Milena. The preserved ruins of the ancient monastery and the new church today represent an integral architectural ensemble and an excellent tourist attraction.

  • Per Cetinje, just in the heart of large park there surrounded by mountains, was a very lovely Church. Was not available but unfortunately had visited in the winter, was seen only in appearance.

  • Built on the ruins of an old monastery this small church has a very special charm with its columns that stand guard at the entrance. We go in just for a quick glance and it is attracted to the spiritual and romantic atmosphere that prevails. In this tiny church based King Nikolas and his wife gathered here for eternity after multiple adventures. Montenegrins have rendered them tribute here by transferring their remains. It's beautiful!
