The park was founded in 1952, with an area of 6220 hectares. The heart is considered to be the top of Lovcen - Jezierski vrh (1657 m), crowned by the impressive tomb of the legendary ruler of Montenegro Petar II Petrovic Njegos. Having overcome the 461 steps of the tunnel hewn in the rock, you will find yourself on the first viewing platform of the mausoleum, and can enjoy the scenery of Montenegro, Skadar Lake and maybe even see the coast of Italy. After going through the mausoleum with tomb itself, you will come to a second platform, where there is real peace and one can feel the majesty of the mountains and the spirit of the great man, in whose honor a beautiful monument was erected.
Lifehack: air temperature at the top is much lower than at the foot of the mountains. Take along warm clothes. And do not forget the purse as a fee for a visit of the mausoleum is charged at the top. After going through the mausoleum, you will find yourself in a circular observation platform.
The national park combines diverse flora and fauna, and relief is characterized by steep cliffs and unusual caves. About 1300 species of plants including rare specimens are found there. For example, on a slope Shtirovnika (1749m) Lovcen bell flower grow, which are under state protection, as they are no longer found elsewhere in the world.
In the park there are many cultural and historical sites, including the village of Njegusi, ancestral home of the Petrovic dynasty. Here you wouldn’t only be able to see the house where Njegos was born, but also to taste local delicacies, negushsky prosciutto and cheese.
