Montenegro: Private Cetinje/Dajbabe/Ostrog Monasteries Tour

8. Montenegro: Private Cetinje/Dajbabe/Ostrog Monasteries Tour

The first thing we will visit is the Cetinje Monastery.. The monastery is very important because it represents the epicenter of culture, literacy and education in Montenegro. It was demolished and reconstructed several times, and after one invasion by Suleiman Pasha, no one was able to restore its beauty. The Cetinje monastery is also extremely important due to the fact that Christian treasures are kept in its modest chambers. Segments of the Holy Cross, the hand of John the Baptist, and the relics of Saint Peter of Cetinje are preserved in the monastery, making it one of the most spiritually rich guardians of the Christian world. Words are superfluous, so go along the Cetinje Monastery and pay your respects to the greatest Christian relics. By visiting the Dajbaba monastery, breathe in the spirit of harmony and get to know the primordial religion. Under the Dajbaba hill, not far from the capital of Montenegro - Podgorica, is the Dajbaba monastery. This monastery was built in 1897 on the basis of a miraculous vision that the shepherd Petko had, dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. What is fascinating is the fact that the monastery itself is carved into the rock and that the space in the cave was originally and only used. It existed so that space could be expanded later, which gave it the shape of a church. At its base, the Dajbabe monastery has an inscribed church in the shape of a cross. The entrance porch with bell towers is the only part of the monastery that is outside the rock of the actual cave. Inside the monastery, the relics of Saint Simeon of Dajbap are preserved. The monastery is special because of the harmony between man and nature, between what God created and what God created. On this occasion, the man understood the message and did not destroy nature, but adopted it. For the end, we leave the most visited and famous monastery in Montenegro. It is dedicated to Saint Vasilij Ostroška, who lived in the 17th century, and whose relics are still here today. It is believed that his holy body was found intact, seven years after his death. It is carved into a steep rock, at an incredible 900 meters above sea level. The monastery is known for the miracles that still take place today, and it has become one of the most visited places of pilgrimage that gathers believers from all over the world, regardless of religion. After that, we go to the Koliba restaurant for lunch. There you will have the opportunity to try the traditional dishes of Montenegro. On the way back, we will take a photo break with a view of the sea.

Montenegro: Private Cetinje/Dajbabe/Ostrog Monasteries Tour

Montenegro: Private Cetinje/Dajbabe/Ostrog Monasteries Tour

The first thing we will visit is the Cetinje Monastery.. The monastery is very important because it represents the epicenter of culture, literacy and education in Montenegro. It was demolished and reconstructed several times, and after one invasion by Suleiman Pasha, no one was able to restore its beauty. The Cetinje monastery is also extremely important due to the fact that Christian treasures are kept in its modest chambers. Segments of the Holy Cross, the hand of John the Baptist, and the relics of Saint Peter of Cetinje are preserved in the monastery, making it one of the most spiritually rich guardians of the Christian world. Words are superfluous, so go along the Cetinje Monastery and pay your respects to the greatest Christian relics. By visiting the Dajbaba monastery, breathe in the spirit of harmony and get to know the primordial religion. Under the Dajbaba hill, not far from the capital of Montenegro - Podgorica, is the Dajbaba monastery. This monastery was built in 1897 on the basis of a miraculous vision that the shepherd Petko had, dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. What is fascinating is the fact that the monastery itself is carved into the rock and that the space in the cave was originally and only used. It existed so that space could be expanded later, which gave it the shape of a church. At its base, the Dajbabe monastery has an inscribed church in the shape of a cross. The entrance porch with bell towers is the only part of the monastery that is outside the rock of the actual cave. Inside the monastery, the relics of Saint Simeon of Dajbap are preserved. The monastery is special because of the harmony between man and nature, between what God created and what God created. On this occasion, the man understood the message and did not destroy nature, but adopted it. For the end, we leave the most visited and famous monastery in Montenegro. It is dedicated to Saint Vasilij Ostroška, who lived in the 17th century, and whose relics are still here today. It is believed that his holy body was found intact, seven years after his death. It is carved into a steep rock, at an incredible 900 meters above sea level. The monastery is known for the miracles that still take place today, and it has become one of the most visited places of pilgrimage that gathers believers from all over the world, regardless of religion. After that, we go to the Koliba restaurant for lunch. There you will have the opportunity to try the traditional dishes of Montenegro. On the way back, we will take a photo break with a view of the sea.
