The Montenegrin culture is extremely diverse. It draws from multiple influences that have had great influence in the region including ancient Greece, Rome, The Byzantine Empire, Christianity, Islam, The Bulgarian Empire, The Serbian Empire, The Ottoman Empire, The Republic of Venice, Austria-Hungry, Yugoslavia, and most recently the European Union. We can help you experience religious holidays, folk dancing, folk music, and traditional paintings. The citizens of Northern Montenegro have survived for years in a difficult mountainous agrarian region through traditional farming and harvesting local products. We organize visits to all culture destinations in Montenegro.
Departure will be organized in Kolašin. Before we leave, we have an organized breakfast in a restaurant with dishes prepared in a traditional kitchen. We will take the main road opposite to Morača river followed by a short stop in Crkvine where you will have amazing views of the mountains Bjelasica, Morača`s, Komovi and Prokletije. Shortly afterwards we will continue our way to the Morača monastery, one of the longest standing and most significant cultural, historical, spiritual, and political monuments of this area. It is 27 kilometers away from Kolašin. The monastery is situated on the terrace just above the Morača River, very close to the main road, and resting in a very picturesque area. The property of the monastery is comprised of the Cathedral Church Uspenje Bogorodice (Our Lady) and the small Church of Sveti Nikola - which is actually older than the monastery and its sleeping chambers. There are famous monuments and valuable works of art, including frescoes from the twelfth century.
After paying a visit to the monastery we have an organized traditional lunch-picnic very close by.
After we finish lunch we will make our way back to Kolašin concluding the final part of our tour.

There are several widely known orthodox religious buildings across Montenegro. The dates of their foundation (some churches were built in 9th century) and the ancient walls of church buildings retain the stories and collect true history about miraculous characteristics of the buildings themselves, as well as relics of buried saints and miraculous healing powers of monks.
Monastery Ćirilovac, located near the bottom of Bjelasica 11 km away from Kolašin, was built by Arhimandrit and an orthodox padre named Jojilo with sleeping chambers where nuns are serving. On the top of mount Bjelasica, above the monastery, Jojilo has built a chapel where he is to be buried. That chapel is exactly the same as the one in Lovćen which houses the bones of Petar Petrović Njegoš.
Monastery Ćirilovac is known for housing particles of the cross on which Christ was crucified. The monastery is also known for the relics of Saint Vasilije Ostroški that it has kept for 17 years.
Padre Jojilo is known to the public for his tales, sayings, and impressive biography. There is a number of witnesses to his healing powers (many people crippled people were able to stand on their feet and walk again; they were healed thanks to their faith in God).
Bearing in mind the difficult approach to the monastery, we organize a one day exclusive trek to visit the Monastery Ćirilovac with four wheel vehicles (jeeps).
Arrangements include renting jeeps, a meal (lunch) and desired drinks, constant presence of experienced guides who speak foreign languages and general assistance to all guests.
The road that leads you to the Ostrog monastery is hundred years old.
The Ostrog monastery is the biggest cultural and historical center of Montenegro.
It is comprised of two parts: Church of Holy Cross (built in 1665) and the main monastery Church of Vavedenja Bogorodice (Presentation of the Mother of God, 1774) where relics of Saint Vasilije Ostroški lay (Saint Basil of Ostrog). Monastery facilities are situated on the Ostrog hill. The main monastery was built on the rocky hill 840 m above sea level and it represents the biggest orthodox pilgrimage in Balkans.
Respecting the customs of Montenegro, people take the road to the upper monastery on their feet.
After visiting the monastery, lunch will be served in a restaurant very nearby.
Have your camera ready as you will be able to see some amazing views on the way back.
On the way to Monastery Ostrog tourists can stop to visit Monastery Moraca.
Departing from Kolasin, we will take the road next to the Tara River where we will stop in its canyon to visit the female monastery Dobrilovina, located within camp Sljivansko, to enjoy a traditional breakfast. Further along the road takes us across the Tara River on the Djurdjevica Bridge which is built 100 meters above the river providing amazing views of the river and its canyon. Next stop will be near the St. Archangel monastery. After the monastery we will journey through Zabljak and across Durmitor mountain through its peaks ads saddles (Savin Kuk 2313m and Sedlo 1908m), Piva plateau, village Trsa to Piva lake. This is where you will have the opportunity to take some amazing photos of Durmitor and the Piva lake area.
The Piva lake is an artificial lake made by building a hydro power plant on the river Piva in 1975. Near Mratinje, 10 kilometers away from Scepan polje, there is a dam 220 meters high, among the tallest dams in Europe. The lake itself is 200 meters deep, 42 kilometers long, and it can all be seen from the road. Lake Piva is the biggest reservoir of drinkable water and it provides perfect conditions for water sports on calm water. Although it is artificial, Lake Piva will enchant you with its beauty and emerald blue color in contrast with the cliffs of the canyon.
The road takes us through Pluzine all the way toward Piva monastery.
Piva monastery, with the Church Uspenja Bogorodice and the sleeping chambers, were built in the extraordinary natural habitat of Piva`s eye, 604 m above sea level in 1586. The Monastery possesses a great treasure of mediaeval frescoes on the walls, comprising 1260 square meters, four hand written gospels, (two of which were written in Russian and the origin of the third is still unknown) enchained with heavy silver boards, a Gramata of the Russian tsar Alexander The First from 1816, the arhijerejski table, Kolo Bogorodičino, and a decorating door. It is known for book treasury, one of the biggest in Montenegro.
In 1969, due to the building of the dam on the Piva River, the monastery had to be moved from its original location. This was an enormous task as it was moved in its original state with all frescoes and relics saved. The relocation was finished in 1982.
After the visit, we will have an organized lunch in the restaurant with a view of Lake Piva.
