THE DIVINE EXPLORER

Enjoy your stay in CUE Podgorica while exploring breathtaking Montenegro.
We have created a tailor-made, 3 nights` stay offer, inclusive of the most famous Montenegrin excursions.

DAY 1:  MARVELLOUS TASTES OF THE CAPITAL CITY

The capital city, casually nestled in a valley bathed in five rivers, surrounded by vineyards and mountains close to Skadar Lake and Adriatic Sea, attracts people who love an active vacation and search for a perfect base for explorations. The hospitable city, which has changed its name five times during its turbulent history, will steal your attention with rich cultural content, perfect cuisine and selection of wines, but also with its very much alive nightlife. Podgorica enriches its variety through business, transit, excursion, sports-recreational and congress tourism, being the centre of all happenings.  The city itself has numerous outing areas, which are maximally used by lovers of fresh air and nature.

Explore the largest vineyard in Europe in a single complex and try some of the local products in the wine cellar of Plantaze Sipcanik. In the immediate vicinity of the vineyards stands a wonder of nature, Niagara Falls on the Cijevna River. The ancient city of Duklja on the slopes of Podgorica, an Illyrian fortress built 2000 years ago, with a necropolis and numerous tombs, defies time.  Nearby Skadar Lake trip will complete the day in a wonderful manner, a full connection with one of the most beautiful lakes ever.

 

DAY 2: THE OLD ROYAL CAPITAL CETINJE AND BOKA BAY

Cetinje is a town of immense historical heritage, founded in the 15th century. It became the centre of Montenegrin life and a religious centre. It is because of its heritage as a long-term Montenegrin capital that it is today the honorary capital of Montenegro. Cetinje, located at the foot of Lov?en mountain, far enough and hidden from enemy sight, yet close enough and open for all friendly hands, is the museum city, the old capital of Montenegro for centuries, and origin point of Montenegrin spirituality and statehood. Patina of past ages on the faces of buildings contains messages from past times since its first days up to the forming of a modern European capital.

Its urban development, strongly connected with flows of Montenegrin history, has succeeded, on such a small space, to produce a unique architectural entity which reflects almost all eclectic styles from the end of XIX and the beginning of XX century.

Gorgeous, unique divine beauty of the Boka Bay will leave you struggling for superlatives. It is hiding Montenegro’s best-kept secrets, cities full of history and local hospitality. As this bay enjoys more than 240 sunny days a year, you can really enjoy the warmth and natural beauty of this bay.

Hemmed in by commanding cliffs and shape-shifting between rippling gulfs and sparkling straits, the cobalt cove even manages to defy geographic description: is it a fjord? A submerged canyon? It seems there’s only one way to define Kotor Bay: unmissable.

During this tour you will have the opportunity to visit the petite town of Perast, the quietest town of Boka Bay. Even today, people are speaking about the richness of this region. Palaces of Perast are now silent witnesses of the former size, splendor, and wealth of the town. The entire past of Perast is reflecting on them lively.

DAY 3: RELIGIOUS MIRACLE

 

Ostrog Monastery, a miracle built by nature and human interaction, carved almost in its entirety in a vertically positioned mountain cliff, is today the pearl of Montenegrin spirituality which is visited by more than a hundred thousand pilgrims from around the world and of travellers of all religions every year. It is one of the three most visited Christian destinations on the planet with its cave-like chapel and the Monastery complex that preserves the sanctity of Saint Basil, the Orthodox Christian Saint of Miracles.

 

This beautiful, sacred spot that is of huge importance for Montenegrins, is a must-visit site whether it is primarily for religious, cultural, or historical reasons. Our stop in return from Ostrog monastery is in Danilovgrad, about two kilometres from the very centre of the town, monastery complex Ždrebaonik comprised of a church, a big dormitory and several ground floor buildings. Ždrebaonik monastery was built in 1818 and it was dedicated to St. Archangel Michael. There are fragments of paintings from the church Sveti Vra?evi from Slatina and records of the construction of the church of St. Archangel Michael preserved ever since the Middle ages. Ždrebaonik women’s monastery is a great gathering place and at the same time a parochial church.
