  • Surely it is a symbol of the country, and for that reason it can attract, but nature is nothing special. You pay 2 euros access to the park and 5 euros access to the mausoleum, which really does not deserve. However, paying for access to the mausoleum is the only way to access the summit.

  • The road is long and winding, and the plot is very narrow and dangerous but it is a shame to lose the scenic landscapes on the way and from above. Just stunning. From Kotor to Mount Lubachevsky, we drove for about two to three hours to reach the top of the mountain. For the mausoleum at the top of the mountain-only those who can climb 461 steps – will do so. We did it and it was very hard (we are 66-68). The view from the café on the mountain can be satisfied.

  • We borrowed this famous serpentine in the late morning and we did not come across any buses. You have to be vigilant because there are about 25 hairpin bends and some drivers that you can cross in front sometimes drive a little fast ... A few amenities on the lower side allow you to take breaks and admire the view of Kotor. 2 euros per person are requested for access to the park.

  • 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.
