ostrog monastery & niksic TOUR WITH MH TRAVEL agency
DAILY EXCURSION IN MONTENEGRO...DEPARTURE FROM PODGORICA...HIGHLIGHTS: OSTROG MONASTERY AND THE CITY OF NIKSIC...DURATION: 9 HOURS...TICKET PRICE €30.00
MH Travel Agency organizes a visit to the famous Ostrog Monastery and Nikšić, the second-largest city in Montenegro famous for the production of the popular Nikšić beer. This tour is an ideal choice for all guests who stay in Podgorica especially because of the short distance to the monastery of 45 km. The popularity of the monastery among visitors and pilgrims from all over the world makes that holy place very crowded. Our visit to the monastery will be in the morning hours when the monastery's complex is quieter, which will make our sightseeing more relaxing and enjoyable. White monastery's walls stuck in the cliff, impressive view on Bjelopavlica valley, as well as the spirituality of this unique place, will affect you in an emotional way and make the beginning of the day special.The city of Niksic is very close to the monastery and lies on several lakes and the beginning of Durmitor mountain massif. Niksic has a modest city center with the lovely Trebjesa city park and popular Krupac lake with beach and promenade. By choosing this tour guests will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the fascinating and miraculous energy of the Monastery as well as the relaxing city of Niksic, which is surrounded by beautiful nature. Welcome:)
WHEN AND WHERE WILL WE START?
The tour starts at 8:30 am from the city center of Podgorica. If guests take the private tour we will pick up them from their accommodations. Also, if guests stay in some accommodation close to our route, we can pick them up on the main road. Pick-up location can be flexible sometimes if suits guest better than the standard one.
NOTE: Guests from Budva or Kotor can go on this tour only on demand.
WHERE WE WILL GO?
We will go to Ostrog Monastery and the city of Niksic
OSTROG MONASTERY (MANASTIR OSTROG)
After visiting the upper monastery, we will visit the lower monastery that was built in the 19th century. The lower complex makes up the church of the Holy Trinity, a monastery, and a religious school founded in the 18th century. Today, liturgies are here held regularly, baptisms and weddings too. From the Upper to Lower Monastery is 5 km of distance by the main road but the track through the forest is a pilgrims route and can be crossed in about 25 minutes.
There are many places worth seeing in the center of Niksic: the Central Square of Liberty, the Royal Palace of King Nikola I Petrović Njegos containing the museum, the Church of St. Basil of Ostrog, which was built in the 19th century. Near the center, there is an old Turkish city wall and Hadji-Smajil's mosque. The beautiful forest park called Trebjesa is about ten minutes moderate walk away from the center with restaurants where guests can have lunch. Salt Lake, which is 6 km from Niksic, is an attraction that we can not visit because unlike Lake Krupac this lake has no proper access road. We'll see the lake from the main road. This lake is full of islands and peninsulas, extremely rugged coasts, suitable for fishing, but there are no organized beaches for visitors. After a visit to Niksic, we go back to Podgorica, where the tour ends.
