Njegos Mausoleum, Cetinje
(4.7/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
Njegos Mausoleum, built into mountain rock, is dedicated to the greatest poet and ruler of Montenegro, high above valleys and highland woods. Climb 461 steps to the 1,657 m (5,436 ft) rugged mountain peak to get to this burial place, and look for a sarcophagus that preserves the ruler's remains. Inside the mausoleum, you'll also see a large granite statue of Njegos, carved by one of the greatest Croatian sculptors of the 20th century--Ivan Meštrović--and a golden mosaic with over 200,000 gilded tiles on the 9 m (30 ft) high ceiling. From the outside on a clear day you can see more than half of Montenegro, Albania, and Croatia. Put Njegos Mausoleum and other Cetinje attractions into our Cetinje itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Access to the mausoleum Negosha not so simple: first-mountain road with many serpentines, then a long tunnel with a steep staircase, to overcome that, too, is not as easy as it may seem! But once inside the mausoleum and Tomb of the ruler of Montenegro, which honors its entire people, forget about all these difficulties. Inside the modest, but beautiful and majestic. No pomposity. All aims at coming here people REMEMBER-it's a mourning place! In addition, the revered Montenegrins. And treat this site with respect. And for elation and selfi-a little further there is an excellent lookout.

  • The exterior of this museum is grand and charming. The interior is not as impressive, if one knows very little abour the Montenegrin Orthodox spirituality. I would like to have at least a few more exp...  more »
  • Lots of stairs, but still a relatively easy climb with one of the best viewpoints in Montenegro. The mausoleum itself is beautiful in its simplicity.
