  • Pros: Great view. Fun geocache. Find the rock piles and leave one of your own. Cons: Tough road to drive. Very little parking. Lots of stairs. No tour.
  • Incredible views and a nice hike. Look up the history before going or stop in the gift shop to view a book. Get there early, during peak season all the cars can make it very difficult.
  • Spectacular view from the entrance. Very cold and windy in late autumn (October) and temperature was around 4°c, much to the dismay of the uninformed an unprepared who went up in casual clothing meant for a temperature of around 17°c at the lowland coastal region. There were 461 steps up to the mausoleum of Montenegro’s greatest hero, Petar Petrović Njegoš (built 1970 to 1974 at the top of Montenegro's second-highest peak, Jezerski Vrh [1657m]) where you can take beautiful photos on a clear day. The drive along the national park is scenic, passing by remote villages and isolated restaurants with home made cheese, ham and sandwiches served with a cup of hot coffee at very reasonable prices.
  • 26 turns to the top of Lovcen! Good restaurant underneath the tourist shop. Views too. A lot of walking up steps!!!
  • Its really a beautiful and peaceful place. One of the symbol parts excellence of Montenegro. I would suggest to visit the information center first. They are really kind and can suggest you the best itinerary based on your goal.
