A mountain and national park from which Montenegro derived its name, the appearance of Mount Lovćen makes it unique. Nestled within the Dinaric Alps in southwestern Montenegro, it is just behind Kotor. Mt Lovćen holds great significance to the Montenegrins, as the place where their beloved hero, Petar II Petrović Njegoš, was laid to rest.
This peak and its picturesque environment provide views stretching as far as Albania, Croatia, and more. There are a few eateries, accommodation providers, and a beginner's ski slope (in winter). On the park's northern edge is Njeguši, famous for being the home village of the Petrović dynasty and for making the country's best pršut (smoke-dried ham) and sir (cheese).
