Cetinje is a town situated below the mountain Lovćen, at an average altitude of 670 m. Cetinje is the old Kingdom of Montenegro. It was founded in the 15th century and became the center of Montenegrin life and its culture. Today it is a city museum with beautiful monuments, promenades, and nature under the huge mountain Lovćen. Cetinje is the former capital of Montenegro. During King Nikola, numerous embassies of different countries were built in this city, giving the city a specific appearance.
The most important monument of the town is Cetinje Monastery built-in 1701 – dedicated to the birth of the Virgin. After the Monastery, the most important architectural monument of Cetinje is Biljarda – the residence of Petar II Petrović Njegoš. It was built in 1838. Although the headquarters of the Montenegrin Senate and foreign missions were located in the building, she remained most remembered by the Billiards Hall, which this extraordinary writer, bishop, philosopher, and statesman liked to play.
Immediately across the street, there is the King Nikola’s Museum in the building from 1867 which in the past served as the residence of Montenegrin rulers. Today it has a permanent setting and a gallery in which traveling exhibitions are shown.
