Montenegro Cetinje streets

Sitting at the foot of the Lovcen mountains, Cetinje is the former royal capital of Montenegro. Its streets are a mix of small cottages and imposing mansions, which previously housed European ambassadors. Today, many of these mansions have been converted to museums and galleries, but most visitors head for Cetinje Monastery, built in 1701 and home to relics of St Peter of Cetinje. St Peter became a monk aged 12 and then governor of Montenegro, famously defeating Napoleon in the battle of Dalmatia.
