We did a day trip to Centinje from Kotor, caught the local bus for the 1.5 hour journey up the mountain, fare was 5 euro each way. The monastery itself is a rather unimpressive building, we enjoyed the town which is nice to wander around...More

We drove to the Mausoleum of Petar II Petrovic, via Cetinje, so we decided to make a small detour to see this building- it was worth the stop, but it is not a "must".

If you are planning to visit Cetinje, the old montenegrian capital, you have to visit this monastery but do not expect too much. In any case - worth to visit.

Loved our visit to the monastery a real quiet and peacful place, spiritually uplifting. We were lucky to have visited before the coach parties (try and plan your visit not to be there when the scheduled tours arrive)
