Very interesting monestary. Beautiful views from the balcony and the small hand painted chapel at the top was quite something. However if I was short on time I probably would have happily skipped this spot. I also didn’t get in anyway the spiritual experience others...More

The drive up the hill was on a very narrow road and we were happy to get out of the car and park on the lower level parking. The climb is about ten minutes on the stairs which gave us an opportunity to stretch a...More

If you are worshipper or pilgrim you need to get up there barefoot, the walk uphill is quite atmospheric. The monastery itself is a interesting place, you will be in the middle with hundreds of believers. The atmosphere is great and definitely worth visiting.

Fascinating place. We arrived at the same time as a bus load of fervent Russians who kissed every icon they could see. It made the experience quite spiritual. You park half way up the hill and walk the rest. No charge anywhere for anything. Unless...More

Yes, it is an intriguing place for a monastery, but if you want beautiful views, go to Kotor. If you are in the area, check it out. If you want to try the railway and hike up the hill, do so, but don't expect too...More
