Cetinje is the ancient capital of Montenegro, whose origins date back to the Zeta Lord Ivan Crnojević, who before the invasion of the Turks abandoned the fortified town of Žabljak and replaced it with Cetinje. In that place, hidden in the almost inaccessible karst terrain, he built a royal palace. Thus was born the new capital of Montenegro, which took its name from the Cetinja River that crossed the Cetinje field. In the monastery of Cetinje over the centuries, numerous important decisions were taken for the people and the Montenegrin state. Even though today Cetinje is no longer the capital of Montenegro, it has nevertheless remained the spiritual, educational and cultural center of the state. Continuation to the Ostrog monastery. On the almost vertical slopes above the quiet valley of the Zeta River, with its light and foggy, almost unreal appearance, the Ostrog monastery is presented. The Monastery impresses the traveler for its position perched in the steep rock. It was built in the second half of the seventeenth century. It is the most important place of pilgrimage in Montenegro, a meeting point for the three religious, Orthodox, Catholic and Islamic confessions. Inside the monastery, there are two churches – the church of Santa Croce and the Church of the Purification of the Virgin. Return to hotel, dinner and overnight stay.

Budva-of Greek and Roman origin, after the division of the Empire was on the border between the Eastern Roman Empire and the West: the city therefore experienced a unique historical experience, on the border of two worlds. The old town of Budva, characterized by typically Mediterranean architecture, stands on an island connected to the mainland by a strip of sand that eventually became a peninsula. Continue to Sveti Stefan, formerly a rocky island with a fortified village that offered a safe haven to the inhabitants of the area from raids by the Turks and pirates. At the end of the Second World War, the island was almost deserted. Thanks to the idea of illustrious Montenegrin painters, it was finally transformed into a luxurious hotel, which, preserving the fascinating urban and architectural structure satisfies the most demanding tourists, also equipped with a helipad and a pier for the boats and yachts. This is the most famous and beautiful hotel, not only of Montenegro, but also of the entire eastern Adriatic.
