  • Lost in the mountains Lovcen National Park (the Black Mountain), in a dominant position is this strange mausoleum. I don't know why atmosphere reminded me of a scene from the film "the Lord of the rings". To access the mausoleum you have to climb a long ladder with more than 450 steps. Atop a large stone Chapel, whose entrance is guarded by 2 large granite caryatids. The big black statue of Petar II and Bishop-Viceroy in pensive position and surmounted by an Eagle dominates the Interior. The tomb is located in a room in the basement that is accessed from the rear. Not far away, a circular platform allows you to enjoy the view of the Park. At the entrance of the mausoleum you can take pictures dressed in period costumes.

  • Tough road to take all the way up to the 2nd highest peak in Lovcen National Park. Would have liked to voted 3.5 as it was better than average but not really very good.  more »
  • Simply amazing! Epic views, fantasic history, and its amazing how it was built. There is a load of stairs so not for the unfit. Entry fee is required at the top.  more »

  • This is really beautiful place and really a must see. Gorgeous view on the mountains, sea and lakes in Montenegro. There is nearly 500 steps until you reach the top of the hill where is mausoleum located.
  • Just amazing. Great poets deserve nothing less...
  • Definitely a must visit place.
  • Go to the top but don't pay for the mausoleum, the view is the best and it's free!
  • Incredible view...
