We did not see the treasury as we were less than 10 persons, and we didn't manage to make a group from people that were there anyway. The monastery holds some of the most important treasures that are held in Cetinje and is a nice...More

We really love this place, very peaceful monastery sounded by many old trees in mountains. We went inside the monastery very lightly and did not stay long. The photo is not allowed in the rooms and there are requirements on dressing.
