  • The Cetinje monastery was the seat of the Bishops of Montenegro since its foundation. Here should lie some important relics: the hand of Saint John the Baptist, Holy Cross fragments, fragments of San Teodoro. The Treasury also has icons, ecclesiastical clothing and furnishings lovely. Unfortunately access to the treasure is reserved for groups accompanied by a monk. We, being only 2 we asked to join a small group about to start a tour. They ask 20 euro and during subsequent visits, no one has deigned to glance or a Word!. The few explanatory cards then they were never in English and so many times it was hard to tell something of the exhibits on display. Venal and rude; This is the impression that we were leaving the monks of this monastery so steeped in history. A real shame. You decide if visit it or help it
