  • It was a nice visit and opportunity to learn more about Montenegro and its culture but from just a tourist viewpoint it was not worth the hassle to get there - if you look for amazing views, there are better places to visit - it is difficult to get there. Families or disabled people can reach the top by car, others must park their car a bit lower and climb some stairs (quite a few). As those steps are really really slippery, wear proper shoes! There are railings by the stairs which help a lot.
  • Definitely worth visiting when you’re in Montenegro - whether you’re religious or not! The building is gorgeous, and the views are amazing. It wasn’t as busy as most of the touristy places during the summer (we went in August). We took a train from Podgorica to Ostrog, and then did the hike up the mountain. We were surprised that not that many people chose this option (we only met 1 person on the way), but it’s a 1,5-2h hike so fair enough. Worth doing it for the views 😉
