TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

Kotor Shore Excursion

This Kotor tour visits two of Montenegro's cultural highlights, the Cetinje Monastery and the Njegusi Mausoleum, which are located in the mountains above the Kotor Bay, offering stunning views. This is a popular tour for those who have already been to Kotor on a previous cruise.

In 1813 Peter II Petrovic Njegusi was born in the small mountain town of Njegusi. His parents were illiterate so at the age of 11 he was moved to the nearby Cetinje Monastery for the purpose of education. This Serbian Orthodox Monastery located in the town of Cetinje, Montenegro is named for Saint Peter of Cetinje. Peter was a famous poet and philosopher and became the Prince-Bishop of Montenegro at the age of 17. During his rule he persuaded the local clans to introduce fair taxation and laws pertaining to human rights. Even to this day he is considered one of the most important people from Montenegro.

After meeting your driver and guide at the pier in Kotor you start the drive high into the surrounding mountains. Your first stop is the small town of Njegusi where you will see the simple traditional stone house where Peter was born.

Next you will visit the impressive Cetinje Monastery which dates back to 1701 holds several important relics. The town of Cetinje was once the capital of Montenegro, known for its religious and political powers. After visiting the monastery you enjoy free time for lunch (meal not included).

After lunch you drive to the Njegusi Mausoleum which is located on the top of Mount Lovcen. Peter was originally buried in the monastery until the Njegusi Mausoleum. The visit here is a highlight for many people. A special bonus on this tour is the commanding views you will enjoy as you travel the winding road from sea level to nearly 3000 feet above the sea.

At the end of the excursion you return to the port in Kotor.
