Montenegro sightseeing. Travel guide - attractions, sights, nature and touristic places

The majority of execution routes in Montenegro start with a visit to Ostrog Monastery. This is a unique architectural complex which never ceases to amaze travelers with its unusual shape and style. The building is located on a high rock; the monastery is literally built into a complex of naturally made caves. Even nowadays it's still hard to imagine how medieval masters managed to make the monastery in such a skilful way. Ostrog Monastery is divided into two levels - the high and the low ones. In order to reach the high part of the monastery, one needs to work on a winding path through the forest. As there are several important Christian artefacts in the monastery, Ostrog is always full with pilgrims.
