  • As the ancient capital of Montenegro-Cetinje and the Royal Palace is located here. Yes, and the town itself deserves close attention. It is not similar to other cities in Montenegro. And for such a small country Palace even very rich. The entrance ticket costs 5 euros, but there is still a ticket to all the museums in Cetinje is a bit expensive. Very pleased, when I saw a huge portrait of Nicholas II and Tsarina in the Centre of the main hall of the Palace.

  • King Nicholas Museum was founded in 1926, inside the residence/Palace of the last Montenegrin ruler Nikola I Petrovic Njegoš. This residence was built between 1863 and 1866, because initially it should serve as the residence of the Princess Darinka, widow of Prince Danilo. Today it houses an extensive exhibition of photos, paintings, apparel and furniture of the time. The building is divided into two floors and to access the visit be paid entry.

  • An excursion from the cruise ship brought us with a bus and accompanying Guide to the museum of King Nikola. Here we were shown around by a local guide in English in the former home of the King. Well worth the visit!

  • One of the most beautiful and best preserved monuments of the culture in Cetinje and Montenegro. The old castle of King Nicola is on of the best highlight of the old royal capital. The first floor of the castle is completely saved like it was originally in 1910. Many beautiful rooms of the old royal family. The whole museum with its exhibitions and excellent guides will provide you beautiful story of old cetinje and its royal family
