Playing with our senses can begin. The sound of the waterfall in combination with the peaceful holy place will give you the strength for a great start to the day.
Montenegro is a place of many wonders and places to visit. And there is one that is famous worldwide, not only among tourists but pilgrims, too. Ostrog Monastery, is not just the Christians that come to its aid. People of other religions are also welcome to say a prayer for the wellbeing of their loved ones.
It was St. Vasily of Ostrog who emerged in the 17th century. Today, his relics are laid there. People tend to go from lower to upper one by foot, which is seen as some kind of pilgrimage.
There are many legends spoken of this sacral place. Most of them are related to spiritual wonders and healing. Either way, the entire site offers an opportunity for introspection and search for inner peace.
After spiritual experince, we head back down to Podgorica and the best it has to give. A few kilometers out of town there is a natural wonder that we call Niagara falls. It is nothing close to the original, but it is somewhat of a smaller substitute.
This is the place where the River "pipe" has nowhere else to go, but the deeps and spectacles for the public are created. Beautiful waterfall and humming water will take you closer to being one with nature.
The very sight once served as a mill and now there is a small replica to remind of the old days. Today is a weekend retreat for families.
Note: Sometimes during the summer, the waterfalls dry up, so we offer our guests the opportunity to visit Virpazar or the lookouts above the river Crnojević, both spots are part of the Skadar Lake National Park. These options are always available. In Virpazar there is an option to rent a kayak for a small addirtional fee.
Note: A visit to the monastery requires clothing that covers the shoulders and knees for all visitors.
