Cetinje Travel


 

Welcome to City of Cetinje


In the history of the tiny country of Montenegro there were times when it was so heavily besieged that it was reduced to a single town. That town was Cetinje, which is now considered its historical capital. What is so interesting to anyone planning Cetinje travel is the fact that this city has a remarkably old world feel that is a reflection of its time as a diplomatic center.

The history of Montenegro is not unusual for a place with such a strategic location, and in its earliest centuries the city of Cetinje was the home to the many embassies established by countries hoping to create bonds with this well-positioned land. Even after the need for these diplomatic connections ended, the European flavor created by the different people inhabiting the city remained. Today, a traveler will see architecture, food, and cultural institutions that all hearken back to that earlier period.

The city is also considered to be a spiritual center in the country too, so the traveler can also expect to find a large number of religious institutions within the old town. In fact, some of the most common “must see” items in a list of Cetinje travel plans are sites such as the Cetinje Monastery and the Vlaska Church.

Sightseeing Of Cetinje


Other popular destinations include the State Museum, the National Museum of Montenegro, and the grave of Vladika Danilo. Of course, one of the things that all visitors to the city know is that they can find the truest of the true Montenegrin crafts and foods here.

For example, the markets are known for being the best spots to purchase souvenirs that are actually made by Montenegrin citizens. The city is also the one spot where truly Montenegrin cuisine is found too, including such odd dishes as prsut, njeguski cheeses, and kajmak. It is also essential to try any of the recommended and regional wines too.
