Lovćen stands on the border between two climate zones, mediterranean and continental, that has caused the development of rich wild life with numerous endemic species of plants and animals. 1/3 out of the existed species of Montenegrin flora can be found here. 

The park is also inhabited by wolves, bears, wild boars, foxes, deer, rabbits, hedgehog, voles, about 200 bird species, 11 species of reptiles and a great number of insects. There are 2 highest peaks of Lovcen mountains, Štirovnik 749m above the sea, you get there just having special equipment; and Jezerskivrh 1 657m above the sea, where Njegos Mausoleum is located. Lovcen National Park is beautiful at any season. Driving along mountain serpentine road, you will see the change of nature. On the shore you can enjoy palms, magnolia, acacia, but here you will see a real forest of north latitude.

How to get to Lovcen?

From Cetinje, you can get to Ivanova Korita by taxi or by car. There is a picturesque plain in the mountains with the extreme park «AdventurePark». The ropes are stretched between the trees with the constructions, which are used to pass the trails with different level of difficulties.

Lifehack: There is an old Royal road leading from Ivanova Korita. If to choose it for the back rout, you will see an unimaginable view of Boka-Kotor bay.

The ascending to the highest point of the National park Durmitor, which is Njegoš Mausoleum, starts from Ivanova Korita. The Mausoleum is located 
1 657m above the sea, on the peak Jezerskivrh. It takes 10 minutes to get to Mausoleum by stairs. After the Mausoleum, you will proceed to an open site with mountain panorama. If the weather is good, you will see the bank of Italy. Certainly, a picture is worth a thousand words!

The admission to the Mausoleum is 3 Euro.

Lifehack: There are two roads to the National park Lovcen. From Cetinje or Kotor by an old serpentine road, which was the part of caravan track. It is possible to plan your trip by car and to start with Cetinje, than go to the National park Lovcen and proceed with your way down by Kotor road, the second name of the road is Royal. It will be a descending road with 25 circuits. For someone it may seem extreme, but the view to Boka-Kotor bay will compensate all troubles of this mountain serpentine.
