Monastery of Ostrog, Montenegro
(4.1/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Carved almost entirely into a mountain cliff and famoud for miraculous occurrences, Monastery of Ostrog serves as one of the world's most-visited Christian destinations. Founded in the 17th century, the site features an Orthodox monastery complex and chapels inside caves. See the Holy Trinity Church, with an interior covered in colorful paintings from top to bottom, and view the remains of 27 World War II soldiers in the Church of Saint Stanko the Martyr. Visit the Upper Church, which emerges out of a cliff and is a world-famous intercession site. The site houses vivid tile icons from 1655, a prayer book from 1732, and decorated candlesticks from 1779. A visit to Monastery of Ostrog represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Niksic tour planner to plot your vacation.

  • This place is built for tourism and it shows. The road to this site is spectacular, and the view from up here is also nice. 
  • When you visit Montenegro very advise take the car. Right fit Russian. The road true solid streamer, but you get used to. We were in Montenegro is not in season. At the beginning of June. An excellent time. The people of anyone. When visiting any attractions tourists did not disturb us. Having read what is still worth a visit, we went to the monastery of Ostrog. And were very surprised. An amazing place. How amazing to see the Church, carved in the rock. All advise

  • Very beautiful landscapes around! Cyclamen grow in the wild! And the sky so close and such a terrible serpantinistaja! Next time I will go wide road, which, by the way, recently built. Holy place! What little Basil of Ostrog cell! All modestly! Visit necessarily worship the relics of St. Basil-miracle worker!
