Tips for your trips. Tourist information. Official websites.

Cetinje (map) is the historic capital of Montenegro. The city is of enormous historical and spiritual value to Montenegro. During the siege of the Ottoman empire, Montenegro itself had, at numerous times, been reduced to just Cetinje and its surroundings.

Cetinje is a town of 19,000 located in the small valley under the Lovćen mountain. It was founded in the 15th century by Ivan Crnojevic. His son founded the first printing house in the South Slavs – about the time the Columbus discovered America!

Due to the strategic nature of Montenegro, it being an independent state on the border of the Ottoman Empire, all of the major European powers had an embassy in Cetinje.
