The popularity of the Ostrog monastery among visitors and pilgrims from all over the world makes that holy place very crowded. Our visit 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, the impressive view of 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, the second-largest city in Montenegro, is very close to the monastery and lies on several lakes and the beginning of the Durmitor mountain massif. It has a modest city center with the lovely Trebjesa city park and the popular Krupac lake with a beach and promenade. The city is famous for the production of the popular Nikšić beer. 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:)

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 which 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, as 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, and 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 and a 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. After a visit to Niksic, we go back to Podgorica, Budva, and Kotor.
The tour is organized by middle-class air-conditioned cars or minibusses. The price of the private tour is per car, not per person. The maximum number of guests in the car is 4. The private tour from Podgorica costs 120 euros, from Budva costs 140 euros, and from Kotor is 160 euros. Private tours can depart any day.
