Owner description: Exactly 461 stairs lead to Jezerski Vrh, which is located at an altitude of 1660 m above sea level, where the Mausoleum dedicated to Petar II Petrovic Njegos was opened in 1974, making it the mausoleum at the highest altitude in the world at the time. The location of today's Mausoleum housed a humble chapel which Njegos constructed in 1845 to be his eternal resting place.

Even tiny states like Montenegro had great leaders and special people like Njegos . He himself asked to be buried there at the end of his short but impressive rule.
An impressive way to remember a ruler in a striking beautiful scenery up the mountain facing an enormous monument of Nejegos.
The fact that you climb 461 steps to reach the top and you get there breathless increases the impression. Ivan Mestrovic is a great Sculptor (many of his sculpture can be seen in Split - Croatia).

We were in Montenegro as a cruise stop so we can only choose to go up the hill to the Tomb of Petar II Petrović-Njegoš or go far to Budva. We chose to go up the hill and the view is breathtaking. Really worthy to get a taxi and go up the hill to admire the "black mountains".

I have visited this place several times over the years, it is beautiful and worth visiting. Views on mountains and Boka bay are great. it was said that during the clear morning you could see Italian coastline from there. Definitely worth visiting.

Getting up from Cetinje (700 m.) to Lovcen (1700 m.) takes some time on a narrow winding road at the end of which you have to climb 461 stairs to get there. But it is worth the trouble if you choose a clear day. The mausoleum itself is a strange half pagan memorial of bishop, ruler and poet Njegos (1813-51), completed 1974.

Amazing views from the top. The carvings at the mauseleum are fascinating - on top of a mountain?! The path from the car park was rather rough, but there were workmen working on creating a better pathway with many steps to get you to the top.
