Create an itinerary including Njegoš Mausoleum
Njegoš Mausoleum, built into mountain rock, is dedicated to the greatest poet and ruler of Montenegro, high above valleys and highland woods. Climb 461 steps to the 1,657 m (5,436 ft) rugged mountain peak to get to this burial place, and look for a sarcophagus that preserves the ruler's remains. Inside the mausoleum, you'll also see a large granite statue of Njegos, carved by one of the greatest Croatian sculptors of the 20th century--Ivan Meštrović--and a golden mosaic with over 200,000 gilded tiles on the 9 m (30 ft) high ceiling. From the outside on a clear day you can see more than half of Montenegro, Albania, and Croatia.

  • Go in clear weather then you know when you are above 70% of Montenegro can see. A breathtaking way up with 50 hairpin bends and easy to drive. On the way, take a break at Nevjesta Jadrana for a nice view and delicious food. You can drive almost to the mausoleum and then another 350 steps that are easy to do, mostly covered. At the top, a beautifully maintained grand mausoleum with statues in granite of 6 meters high. You can even enter the tomb which doesn't feel bad. And the view over all those immense mountains so much and far which gives a good picture of Montenegro. Definitely a must if you are in Montenegro
  • Didn't even make it to the Mausoleum, there's been a major snowfall in the last week and the snow banks are big, some cover a whole traffic lane, so brave slow and carefully. I got 5 km away and was stopped by a snow plower. He said the road is OK but I figured the Mausoleum is most likely piled under massive snow.
