Montenegro – In search of lost time

Tourists visit the tomb of Petar Petrović Njegoš’s, the country’s spiritual guide and the author of “ The Mountain Wreath“, Montenegro’s most famous epic poem. The Mausoleum was constructed in 1971. The location for his burial place and the mausoleum at the summit of Jezerski Vrh was chosen by Njegoš himself as his last wish. Mount Lovćen is a mountain and national park in southwest Montenegro. The mountain was the inspiration for the name Montenegro (Crna Gora / Black Mountain), first mentioned in a charter issued by Stefan Milutin in 1276. The name derives from Mount Lovćen’s appearance as it is covered in dark dense forests.
