What we’ll do

This tour represents a blend of culture, history, religion, and nature of Montenegro. First off we are going to one of the most important Orthodox sanctuaries of the spiritual life
in former Yugoslavia, the Ostrog Monastery. From afar, Ostrog looks like it rises from the cold stone and its white walls stand out from the dark cliffs that surround it. Ostrog monastery was founded by St Basil who later become St Basil of Ostrog Monastery (Sv Vasilije Ostroski). Here you will see the lower and the upper Monasteries, attracting special attention from millions of tourists and pilgrims every year. In the upper Monastery, there are two churches, each of them representing important religious sites filled with frescoes and relics of Saint Basil, and it is even believed that a piece of the
cross Christ was crucified on was given to the church. You will admire the combination of the perfect blend of nature and religion in Monastery, bow to the miracle religious ornaments, and find out more about St Basil's life and cult, spread among the believers of all three confessions.


After this spiritually profound visit, our next stop will be something quite different, calming, and untouched nature of River Crnojevica. Following the road to the fisherman's village of Rijeka Crnojevica, you’ll be amazed by the mesmerizing view that follows us all the way to it. The photo stops are a must here because the view from the old authentic road is one of the most beautiful panoramic views in our country. When we finally come to the village you will have enough free time to wander around ancient bridges and architecture and have a taste of local fish specialties at our friend Pedja’s
restaurant. For our way back we again choose another route that follows the beautiful nature and sunset over the seaside.
