  • The outside looks like a mountain retreat. Inside, however, the surprise of a Palace well appointed and maintained, with an excellent guide. Well worth a visit because it's rebuilt perfectly the ambiance of King Nikola, father of Queen Elena.

  • Go back to the time of the Romans, then the dynasty of the Petrovics, then wars, invasions, the era Tito and finally independence since 2006. This museum, which is well documented, shows the courage of the Montenegrins to defend their country. In Montenegro, there are the beaches but also culture...

  • Maybe most beautiful and most interesting place in Cetinje! Great story about glory and very rich serbian history! I would highly suggest visiting this site! 
  • Wonderful guide gave an excellent tour. House is filled with furniture family used, portraits, artwork, ceremonial items etc. It is small and easy to appreciate. Some of the furnishings are quite beautiful varied and unexpected. Definitely take a tour to understand the context.
  • Thanks to our guide Oskar this sightseeing tour was an unforgettable experience for us! We heard a lot of interesting stories from the past and learned so much about Montenegro's history. This museum is a must see.
  • The best center of balkan history
  • Nice inside although outside looks simple for one royal palace. I like it.
