Spiritual paths of Montenegro: Ostrog, Dajbabe, Cathedral Resurrection of Christ
Montenegro attracts tourists not only by the beauty of nature, architecture, interesting culture, rich history, but also the opportunity to visit the places where Christian traditions were born and worship shrines. Montenegrin spiritual heritage consists of more than 800 sacred sites: 133 mosques, 571 Orthodox churches, 60 monasteries, several dozens of Catholic cathedrals.

The program of the tour includes a visit of 3 Montenegrin monasteries, significant for the entire Orthodox world. The route starts from the coast to the central part of Montenegro with a stop for a photo break above the Budva Riviera. In 4 km from Podgorica, there is an extraordinary Dajbabe Monastery, founded in 1897 by Reverend Simeon Dajbabski, whose relics are kept there. It is amazing by the face, that for the usual, at first glance, stone façade, narrow branched caves are hidden. Inside them, almost underground, there is a monastery. It is called "the underground home of the Queen of Heaven". It houses the miraculous icon of Jerusalem Mother of God.

And, of course, we will visit Ostrog. This place is one of the main shrines of Montenegro, the object of mass pilgrimage of believers of different faiths. The relics of revered Saint Basil of Ostrog are kept there, who did much to strengthen the Orthodox faith in Montenegro and for the development of the monastery. The road to the temple is a real test of strength and spirit. The monastery consists of three levels. Lower Monastery was built in 1820, and its center is the church of the Holy Trinity. Upper Monastery, built in the rock niche, including Church of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Holy Cross Church.

 Lifehack: from the Lower to the Upper monastery, there are numerous steps: it is believed, that the true believer must overcome this way on foot. Though, the upper part of the complex can be reached by car.

Exactly in the Upper monastery, the cell of St Basil of Ostrog is located, next to which, after his death, a vine has grown, and kept the ark with his miraculous relics. Between the lower and upper monastery, there is New Martyr Stanko Church, which conducted the rites of baptism and wedding.
